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

Only had their breakfast at their cafe on the square. The location is excellent especially for people watching. They make the best fresh fruit juices. There is a good choice of breakfast options including American. Service was efficient and prices were ok.

Our first impression checking in was underwhelming, but between the excellent service and attention from the staff and the large room we got overlooking a tree shaded square we quickly realized what a hidden gem this place was. The complementary breakfasts under umbrella covered tables outside were very enjoyable and we could walk everywhere worth going in the historical center.... More

The hotel is located in a very good area close to all major attractions in the colonial zone. The breakfast included in the room rate was very good. It was a small room but comfortable for a short stay. Nice view to enjoy breakfast from the hotel restaurant.

This hotel has a few quirks I'm not a big fan of. My room was tiny, the bed basically filled the entire room so don't expect to have much space to spread out. I'm not sure if all the rooms are like this, but my room had no exterior window. When I peaked into another room (a bit larger than... More

This restaurant was fantastic. The carbonara and the chicken noodle soup were our favourites. They only charged $50 pesos to add a chicken breast to the pasta. Great value for quality food, perfect location to watch the hustle and bustle of the district!

Exactly what I wanted! Ridiculously cheap (by London standards anyway!) this hotel is really wonderful. If you were any more in the Zona Colonial, you'd be sitting on Columbus lol. It is very charming, the common areas have wonderful little sofas and lamps and the rooms are spacious with very high ceilings. It's like travelling back in time (but in... More

The hotel is simple but good. It has air condition and a popular restaurant/ bar downstairs. It's smack in the center of Santo Domingo and the location couldn't be better. I went there July 2014 and the entire city of Santo Domingo is torn up to put new wires in the ground. It's very noisy beginning at 8am to 5pm.... More
