Description:
This little gem will only be around til September 2007. When I revisited it a month ago I saw a container with construction trash outside, as sure sign of renovation. I talked to the assistant manager and he confirmed that the whole hotel is in the process of being "updated". What a shame.

The glass entrance doors:


Several posts have carved panels like the one in the foreground on the left:


...and in the background, the piece de resistance: A mosaic mural of the Kon-Tiki raft !


That carved Moai panel, and the plaster Kon-Tiki wall mask below are already spoken for, but that wonderful mosaic mural is going to get trashed, if nobody saves it!
