It is located in the best neighborhood in Santo Domingo La Zona Colonial . It is a very hip neighborhood full of cafés bars and restaurants. The hotel is nice since you feel like you step into a nice courtyard in Spain. The problem are the rooms. My room was very outdated and bare. The room need to be refurnished....

Great location on historic Calle las damas. The hotel is nice, almost too much service, e.g. Maid came in 2x per day and guy who checked on bar. Little pool, pleasant though. Breakfast was excellent, buffet with a lot of choices from local fruits and veggies, warm and cold cheese, egg and meat option. Pastry section, different breads etc. But...

This is a super cute, clean and friendly hotel in the middle of the colonial district. The hotel was recommended by a local friend who works at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it's the hotel they recommend for visiting family, friends, and dignitaries looking for a local boutique hotel in a great area. The French Embassy is also in...

We stayed there 2 nights, toured other areas, and returned for 3 additional nights. The first room was lovely -- old architecture, view of the pool and river and quiet. The second...

I would stay here again. A beautiful hotel in a 500 year old palace. Incredible restoration, River views. On arrival you are greeted with a refreshing towel and a cold sparkling drink. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Hotel is situated right in the historic district close to museums, restaurants and good walking. Free wifi.

Almost everything about this hotel is on the mark. The service is excellent and warm. The architecture of both the rooms and common grounds is stunning. The breakfast buffet is (with eggs, fresh fruit and various meats) sufficient to tide one over through the entire day. The only small issue is that the rooms are not 100% soundproof and it...

Beautiful property ideally located for touring and walking around the historic district. Rooms are incredibly comfortable and of high standards. The architecture nicely combines the old-world feel with modern conveniences. We walked around the historic district and saw other hotels, and were very happy with our decision to stay at this property.
