I spent two nights here. This place truly deserves the title "boutique". It ticks all the boxes (cleanliness, breakfast, decoration). It could also be a museum in its own right, which adds a nice atmosphere. It is also very close to top sights and good restaurants.

A very small hotel in a historical building located in Zona Colonial - right next to the Parque Duarte and just a few short blocks from the cathedral and Calle El Conde. The breakfast layout is a little sparse, but they do cook eggs to order which was a huge plus. The staff (both at the check in and breakfast)...

The location is beautiful in an old building. I really liked the history they tell about the place. The room is lovely but ours had no window. I hadn't read about that on any website. We were only here for 1 night so it was ok, but if we stayed here longer I would have felt locked up. The room...

Live the experience of being in the colonial capital by staying at El Beaterio, a charmingly restored convent. Each comfortable room is unique and opens onto a lovely courtyard. The bathrooms are roomy and well equipped with places to put your necessities. The breakfast is ample and nicely presented -- you can order eggs prepared the way you like them....

We were so pleased when we saw this in person. We parked our car right out front and the room we were given was very cosy. The staff were very helpful and accommodating with any questions we had. Gave us directions to a good place to eat and told us where to go to see things. We felt very safe...

El Beaterio is an elegant, understated, and extremely affordable oasis in the historic center of Santo Domingo. A restored convent, the stone walls, interior courtyard, and period furnishings lend a historic note to anyone's stay. The location is ideal, the the personnel are hospitable and helpful. This is truly a wonderful, intimate hotel to which I plan to return.

So glad to have added four days to our trip to see Santo Domingo. The Zona Colonial is a feast for the historically curious and El Beaterio is ideally situated. Very nice staff and an amazing aura from this place. Rooms are lovely, air conditioning is great, the wrought iron furniture has character, the upstairs rooftop with small garden is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
XVIth century old convent, El Beaterio witnesses the history of Santo Domingo for almost 500 years. Faithfully restored in keeping with the original charm and architecture of its period, this quaint and private hotel offers its guests a unique atmosphere of the inimitable Dominican art de vivre. Nested in the heart of the colonial city, El Beaterio offers eleven coquettish and sober rooms, laid out around a flowery colonial interior patio. Between its stone walls, it’s a peace oasis in the middle of a vibrant and enlivened city. Established in 1530 with the beatas given the task of collecting girls of all ages, Spanish and mixed race, lost on Earth». You’ll find out what a beaterio is, and you’ll learn about the religious figures responsible for its foundation in Santo Domingo. You’ll discover two residents of El Beaterio, Sor Leonor de Ovando and Dona Elvira de Mendoza, first poets of the New World. Since 1990 when UNESCO declared the Colonial City of Santo Domingo as “World Heritage Site”, El Beaterio is classified as “building of documental, historic and architectural value”. In 2016, El Beaterio is officially recognized as Dominican Republic’s first hotel-museum by the Ministry of Culture. ... more   less
