The attraction of these simple accommodations is their location on a small island in the river under the tower—a picturesque sight indeed. As the building is narrow, your room may have windows on both sides so you can sleep with the stereophonic warbling of the small canal one side and the river on the other.

Na Ostrove's drawbacks, however, are evident. The lobby, which doubles as a restaurant, smells pervasively of cooking oil, an odor that occupies the hallways during the day. The rooms are large, but poorly furnished with clunky, threadbare communist-era furniture. Breakfast, served on a small terrace over the canal, consisted of muddy instant coffee, dry toast, and strange looking ham.

The three staffers I met were pleasant, but spoke only the barest essentials of English or German. The only thing going for Na Ostrove is its location, but I would return on the strength of that alone
