There are plenty of restaurants, shops, and attractions...

The Hotel is beautiful, the staff is wonderful and the freshly prepared meals delicious. We could not have asked for a better experience! Such a peaceful place to spend time in Santo Domingo. Close enough to the City to appreciate all that the Capitol has to offer. Can't wait to return!!!!!

This little boutique hotel is housed in a building that dates back to the sixteenth century. It is very lovely and perfectly situated. The staff are wonderfully friendly, especially Carmen and they provide an excellent breakfast. The rooms are hit and miss. Our rooms, right off the lobby, were very loud and the bathroom was only accessible by going outside....

This is a boutique hotel in the historic district of Santo Domingo. Attached to the lobby, there's a small restaurant that serves a delicious, home-cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff was incredibly kind and the service was prompt. All of the rooms face the courtyard, where there's a pool and palm trees. Each room has its own table and...

It is not the worst hotel in the world, but certainly not the best. The rooms are nice, but the hotel itself is not very good. I stayed there and had to eat in another hotel (literally across the street) because the hotel restaurant only operates certain hours. I really like the rooms, the appear historic, very different, but the...
