Really nice hotel right in the centre of the zona colonial. We had the cheapest room as it was only for one night. Although small it was more than adequate. Breakfast included in price really good and making it very good value.

The location is just perfect, directly at Plaza Colon in the heart of the old city. In my 3 or 4 visits so far, the rooms were always well kept (and I only booked in advance once, the others times I just showed up and asked for a room). Staff was always very nice and attentive: "Oh, you have to... More

Great restaurant, environment, very friendly people, maybe the only problem is small rooms and i asked for 2 beds, got one bed for my wife and kid. It was weird, but attention, location, food, environment and else was perfect. Oh you are gonna have a headache looking for a parking space, but this is not the hotel responsibility

we just returned from a 3 night 4 day stay at the Conde. The location is great however we had a few issues that for some reason could not be resolved-the internet is not real good, kept cutting out on us, only had hot water sporadically in the shower and we had a hair dryer that overheated and almost caught...

This historic hotel and restaurant sits on the Pargue Colon (Columbus Park) and is the epicenter of all things colonial zone. La Zona Colonial is currently undergoing some heavy renovation, but don't let it put you off. The corner by this hotel is Complete. The common areas were intentionally decorated In a old style. The architecture of the building and... More

I recently stayed here for 4 nights, along with two friends. The hotel is situated in a prime location for Santo Domingo tourism as well as nightlife. Everything is in walking distance. The hotel front desk staff, especially the woman on the morning shift, was very nice and helpful. My only gripe is the lack of more toiletries in the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the staff was great. Loved our room over looking the square. The location is perfect for anyone that wants to see the history of the city and country. You can walk to most ever thing you want to see.

When we checked in, we were greeted by George, who was very nice, professional, and eager to please. With us coming from the US, there was a problem with him authorizing my credit card. He contacted Nury, the Manager, and she ultimately had him charge my card for the entire stay in which I stated that we would be paying... More

Stayed a Saturday night here to escape from our, very nice, all inclusive in Punta Cana. Lovely big room, if a little basic, with a balcony overlooking the Plaza/Parc. Perfectly located and charming. didn't have breakfast, not sure it was included in our rate. Stumbled across a fantastic little bar nearby at 153 Hostos (El Sarten, but there's no sign)... More
