“Hotel New York: the place from where the old cruise ships would leave to NYC! Gorgeous hotel which has retained its character. Enjoy the outside terrace in the summer. It's an absolute must and tradition to take the water taxi (small boat) from the other side of the river to Hotel New York! ”

Gilbert organizes very good live music concerts in their bar and once a month in the old church of Charlois.”
