“Perfect colonial style getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

Christiansted on St. Croix was a perfect two day getaway from a conference in San Juan. The old Danish houses combined with a relaxed laidback caribbean life style was excellent. Situated in the middle of the historical city right on the Board Walk couldn't be better, and although the hotel is a bit worn down, it doesn't really matter, because it still has everything you need for a few days of vacation. Restaurants, bars and diving shops surrounded the hotel - be sure to go under water while you are there!

And for all us Danes it was an extra plus being welcomed in Danish at the Hotel entrance...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with full ocean view, if possible!

The Hotel Caravelle is my favorite in Christiansted. Location, location, location: right on the boardwalk with Rum Runners restaurant attached. Very easy walking distance to everything in town. Elsie, Joycelyn and the entire staff are excellent & always helpful. Older hotel with some needed upgrades taking place.

Room Tip: Ocean view is best choice. No elevator.

Old hotel with the Best staff in STX. Everyone working at Miss Elsie's hotel is so kind and friendly. The hotel is old but clean and close to boardwalk in Christiansted. Had the suite overlooking the ocean. Hope to come back next december.

Me and my wife got nearly 100 bites from bedbugs during 4 days. Christiansted is completely shutdown in august so forget shopping. This Island is very poor and therefore the roads are not the best. Friendly staff

The hotel is owend and operated by 2 sisters, hence the pink color of the hotel.
Good rooms if you choose a room with ocean view, othervise your view is a parking lot with a lot of noisy chickens.
The pool, and area around it, is small.
Very friendly staff, will do what they can to fulfill your wishes.
Hotel connected to the Rum Runner Restaurant, very good. They have a bar from where you can see very hungry fishes beeing fed every evening.

I stayed at this hotel back in 2007 and I love it , the room was great, so I decided to back now in 2011 and was kind of dissapointed, the room that was given to us smell, and the rug was stained, and the pool has mold. Next time I will go either to St.Thomas or will choose different hotel.
