The room was comfortable, quiet, cool, and the staff here were great. [This hotel actually saved us from a terrible hotel experience. (See review for Hotel Portes 9).] The location, too, is excellent -- a short walk, apparently safe at all hours, to the Calle el Conde and all the principal tourist sights. Easy to come and go from here.... More

great hotel love the stay, at first glance area seemed a bit rough but after exploring I found it to be very safe. I love to eat so I found two of the top three restaurants in the city within walking distance (check trip advisor)

The hotel is nice, and the service is good. Not everyone speaks English well, but they try their best. The room we stayed in was surprisingly large, and the bathroom was very spacious. The hotel has free wifi, and it provides its own parking garage if you have a rental (which is a huge advantage in this area). The only... More

We spent two nights in this hotel but didn't spend a whole lot of time at the hotel or in the colonial zone. It's a $40 cab ride from the airport. This hotel is very convenient to the colonial zone, shopping, and restaurants. It was very clean, had a lot of great art and the historic vibe was cool. We... More

I stayed at the Boutique Hotel Palacio for two nights beginning 13 May, 2014. The hotel is located in the Zona Colonial with pretty much easy access to major parts of the city. I basically have no complaints about this hotel. I particularly like the bathroom which was clean and spacious. I was quite impressed by the quietness of my... More

My wife and I stayed a night at the Hotel Palacio last week on a trip to the DR. The staff was great, the room was huge and inexpensive, and the location is right in the middle of everything you could want to do in the Zona Colonial. On a return trip to Santo Domingo I would definitely stay here... More

This is the first time I stayed here having always stayed at the Nicolas de Avango and although it's a much smaller hotel it is not bad at all and a lot cheaper. In general I prefer staying in the old city and the architecture of this hotel compliments the area very well. The rooms are clean, cool and spacious... More

This hotel is a nice option for those not willing to spend the expensive price of the Nicolas Ovando. Located right off the pedestrian walkway of Conde St., the hotel has a super friendly staff, a cute inner courtyard with tables for eating, and clean stylish rooms with colonial wrought iron accents but ultra modern facilities (bathroom, wifi, etc).
