I am from Canada. I spend about 160 nights a year in 5* hotels around the world for business. The Dominican Hotel has to be one of my favorite hotel even if it is rated 4*, to me it deserve a 5* rating. The rooms are small but beautifully done. The service is impeccable and contrary to some other reviews,...

Highly recommended. We booked a three night stay. We received the room exactly as described. The hotel staff is courteous, helpful and pleasant.
