  • Hotel was pleasant. There's only one pair. Too, you go on the roof? See the mountains and the sea in the feeling of freedom with plenty of beautiful landscape, players can enjoy. There were lots of women liking to shop related to the exhibitions in the past, such as brand and Lisa Larson fashionable gadgets. Even more select is 100% cool. Café also come many users are so delicious. Just the Sada had become the menu pumpkin pie with cinnamon tea at the cafe, in the exhibition.

  • Modern building, wood, concrete, glass, terraces with a view of the port and the city. Staff not very friendly shop. Shows no interest is paid, it must take a ticket for each show, the impression of being had.

  • Nice art museum just next to the waterfront. I saw the Pixar limited run exhibition, which was very good. I also looked at the vaguely titled 'paintings' section, which was impressive, but not giant names, so don't go if you're only looking for very famous work.
  • Building is beautiful! I strongly recommend to visit the roof garden, which is free of admission!
  • Beautiful architecture, good gift store. Had a free exhibition on photography on the ground floor.
  • The cafe inside is relaxing, with good view. The first floor is free admission.
  • Nice place to have great views of the harbour.
