I stayed in this Hotel for four nights on a personal leisure trip .. As many of the other reviews have mentioned the Hotel is old - it is located some distance away from the Zona Colonial and in my opinion not really near anything to see certainly in walking distance. Cabs are available easily from the Hotel though. So...

This was my first visit to the DR. I stayed at this hotel and was not disappointed. Before my trip, I emailed the hotel and asked if they could arrange a taxi service from the airport to the hotel. Eduardo confirmed quickly after my email with all the details. Upon check-in, I was treated like royalty. My room was beautiful...

I visit Santo Domingo 5-6 times each year for business, and I normally stay at the Hilton as a diamond member. This time my customer suggested I stay at the Embajador due to being close to his home and the city center. The hotel is ok. The bed is very good as are the linens. The shower is hot and...

I was greeted by the concierge Maria Isabel Morban upon arrival. The service provided was highly professional, efficient and individualized. It was a great start to a fantastic stay! Ms. Morban made sure I had a delightful stay at the hotel. I recommend her-and the Embajador most highlu should you travel to Santo Domingo

It's an old style hotel. The hi-light of this hotel is the pool. Beautiful ground with a lot of green around. Breakfast was quite good with so many food to choose from. The room is old and outdated. Bathroom is pathetic. They should just tear down the hotel and build the new one (keep the pool area =)

Overall, this is a nice hotel. My first time to a non-resort hotel on a beautiful island. You can tell right away that it has history. Tucked away, off the main road. I was in room 545 at the opposite end of the elevator. The view was not impressive unfortunately. Next time I will ask for ocean view room. The...
