If you like visiting aquariums then you'll love the lobby at Trendy, where it's wide-screen fish tanks all the way.
As for accommodation, this three-star hotel is excellent for the price, with all 55 air-con rooms tastefully decorated in muted tones with wooden flooring. Beds are firm but come dressed in clean white cottons; cable TV, minibar, hairdryers and tea-making facilities come as standard; bathrooms are modern and clean. This is one of the only riverside hotels in this price range that comes with a pool and staff are genuinely helpful – there is a passage in the guestbook explaining that they are not trying to be a five-star hotel and nothing is perfect, but that the staff are there to welcome you and make you feel at home – and they do. An Asian-style buffet breakfast is included in the rates. The best rooms face the front of the hotel.
