We had booked into the hotel's newly renovated part, but on check in, were given a room in the older part. While the room was spacious, it was old, tired and worn, and some of the bathroom fixtures were a little rusty. However, the hotel is located in an excellent location and the historic building and its architecture is beautiful.
I would suggest booking well in advance and stipulating that you would like to stay in the newly renovated part of the hotel.
