Was in the Santo Domingo for the weekend. Chose this place because of location and modest price. I'm partial to the Gazcue section and this place is right off the corner of Ave Independencia! This place has always seem to be an enigma, because the location is great! Yet, not well regarded or reviewed! Perhaps because of a haunting bad... More

This small hotel is in a good location: gazcue neighborhood and in the independence street, easy to find. Pool is small, rooms are ok. My complaint is about food. They serve you they self in small portion. I asked the waiter to give a little bit more, just smile and nothing else. Wifi connection is great: 6mb download and 2mb... More

The rooms are in very bad conditions, dirty, with mold, no mini-bar, and they smell bad of course. The swimming pool is very small and not so clean kept. No elevators. The hotel is very old and not well conserved. Service is terrible in general. They only have soap in bathrooms, no shampoo or conditioner. TV is ok. Air Condition... More

If you are on a budget, this is a safe, economical hotel. But be aware it is a 20 minute walk from the Colonial center, partly through questionable streets that aren't safe at night. There are always taxis near by so you don't need to take the risk.

The rooms are ok but there are doors leading to other rooms and there is often noise late. The breakfast staff is not friendly and they don't come to you to take your order. The food is average and expensive. The pool is sometimes quite dirty. Many low class clients stay at this hotel and party in the pool area... More

I enjoyed every minute of my stay at La Casona Dorada. The room could have been a liiiiittle bit bigger but it was comfy and clean. The a/c, tv, remote and phone worked perfectly. The bathroom was clean and I definitely appreciated the hot water - no complaints there. I had dinner in their restaurant, the food was delicious. Later... More

I visited Dominican Republic for about two weeks. I stayed in many good hotels. My last two nights I decided to try the La Casona Dorada hotel (cheap hotel) on Avenida Independencia in the Gascue section of Santo Domingo. The room was small and ugly with no safe. The room had a balcony and was on the second floor. On... More

My traveling buddy and I had a great time there. The hotel seems central to the city proper. Want to gamble? The casinoes are 20 minutes away. The neighborhood seems safe and the people friendly. It's a relaxed environment. No fus. The room service is not of the best but can be tolerated. The water may not always be hot,... More
