The only 2 good points about this hotel is the entrance and the pool which are absolutely charming. Staff was not kind and the room was dark and smelly. Breakfast bellow from average! I have been to saint domingo in the past and you can find so much better in the same style for the same money!

Lovely hotel in colonial zone. Perfect location. The room was clean and comfortable. Great view from the jacuzzi and the beers were refreshingly icy cold. Thank you Consulado​ for the warm hospitality.

its a very filthy hotel with terrible service. I know some pleople gave it an ok review but please trust me on this one, never ever under any circumstance stay in this hotel. The pictures make the place look so cute and it could be if they kept it clean. But it is such a filthy place.
