Is the location of hotel in old town where all the bars, restaurants, etc
No this hotel near some restaurants but not the area you want. There is a courtesy van which may be able to drop you off in that district. This hotel is within walking distance of Metro!
Its a 5 minute drive to the old town area you are speaking of. Double check with the hotel about their shuttle . One of the staff said they would take us there in the shuttle, but when we asked, they said it didn't go to old town
