I have stayed in the hotel twice, in November 2012 and this past weekend from 29th May to June 2nd. The first stay was good, with the concierge going out of his way to assist my girlfriend, who had arrived a few hours before me. On the basis of that first trip I would hav given the hotel a 4-start...

This hotel is just an oasis in the middle of this very busy town. It is located in the Zonal one of my favorite spots in DR. Well the hotel is just magical as the attention to detail makes a difference. The regular rooms are very comfortable but if you can afford get the colonial room. The breakfast is great...

I went there for business just for one night but that was enough to impress me! Neighborhood a bit scary but when they open the door you enter another atmosphere... Amazing construction full of history, welcome drink and several small treats like the cool towels and weather forecast note with candy delivered at the door.
