We have chosen this hotel for its good location - beeing fairly close (walking distance) to the bus terminals Carribean tours and Expresso Bavaro (both are alittle less than 2 km away which is OK for backpackers as we are. Also it's close to the city center Zona Colonial. The rooms don't offer luxury but they do their job for...

I stayed with my parents and daughter for 3 days on our way to Las Terrenas. Is not far from the city but the neighborhood might scare you. Is a budget hotel so don't expect nothing fancy. Fernando and Roberto (taxi driver) are very helpful, especially Roberto. He did helped me a lot. You can eat breakfast there for $...

The best hotel at any price (under $50) for 2 persons with a great breakfast included in Santo Domingo. The rooms are clean & classic with no complaints possible. The shower does take about 2 minutes to run hot as we like it. The arepas with eggs & ham for breakfast just can’t be beat. Also complimentary coffee and fresh...

My wife and I frequently stay at this hotel for work and pleasure whenever we are in the capitol. The prices are fair ($1,100 pesos for my wife and I and $1,500 pesos for four people). The rooms are clean, air conditioning cold and internet works well most of the time. Most rooms have a mini fridge and the staff...

The Riparbella is functional but not exciting. The rooms are quite clean, TV, AC, and hot water all work (a rarity to get all three functioning). Drinking water on the first floor. Many rooms do not have windows to the outside but this is quite common in the DR. Staff friendly and competent. I'd disagree with other reviews that say...

Compared to some of the other hotels in the area, this is the only one that offers consistently functioning air conditioning (the other frequently loose the power for it). They also have cable TV which includes some English language channels if that's your thing. Finally they are literally only about a 10 minute walk from El Conde and the colonial...
