    Great location, can walk to everything in Old Town. Hotel is not modern, rooms are clean but dated; has improved over the last time we were there 5-6 years ago. You'll never forget the elevator! About 20 minuets from new cruise port.

    Hello, No, we don't have shuttle services here at the Hotel. We do have a taxi line in front of the Hotel which can take you to the cruise port.
