For the first class prices you pay you will get accommodation that is half renovated as the building is very old. The pictures on the website look great but we checked online and saw some conflicting pictures that looked old and dingy. As of Dec. 2012 the rooms and bathrooms are not renovated. The kitchen and living room were redone. When we called to ask about the old dingy photos on the internet, we were told that the rooms were all updated.The bedrooms and bathrooms are from the 1970's and are falling apart. The website images are deceiving. We were given a slight refund but that is not what one wants when booking a hotel for a vacation!
