We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The room, the restaurant, and the concierge service was great. It is located in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo - within walking distance to many beautiful, historic sites. I would recommend it to everyone!

This hotel is probably the best hotel in the city and the most beautiful. The location is perfect to walk around in the old city. Service is very good and rooms are very comfortable. Make sure you stay in a Colonial room (a bit more money compared to contemporary rooms) they are the in the higher floors and you wont...

Our first impression was of a very good hotel. And indeed it is. But despite all the good things, we left with a little disappointment. The bedroom was great, good bed, the bathroom is beautiful, everything was working just fine; I always enjoy receiving a welcome letter at the room, the pool is clean, the staff is very well trained...

It is a super nice hotel in SD. Great location, nice breakfast and a lot of character. The great experience is tuned down a little during the checkout time since the hotel tries to charge extra for things are are free at any other 5star hotel. Be aware of any extra charges. For example, hotel asks you to pay 25...

Positive: Beautiful building. Decent rooms. Central location. Not so positive: No matter your job or your salary, show up in casual wear (i.e. flip flops, t-shirt, with a backpack) and you'll be judged immediately as an inferior client. However, this doesn't seem to be hotel specific, so perhaps I shouldn't fault them. When I booked online, there was an error,...

Breakfast was great, the room was nice. No complaints. We weren't there long, but we didn't have any issues either. The concierge service was also fantastic. They had some great restaurant recommendations and helped us find where we were going.

I stayed here for two nights in December as part of a business trip. The hotel is quite nice and provides most modern amenities. Things which let the hotel down were: 1. Price, this place is reasonably expensive for a basic room. 2. Found the concierge to be pretty pushy when it came to trying to get information. We wanted...
