Hotel with quiet and large apartments. There is no restaurant nor room service besides cleaning once a day. Good location and fair fare. Nearby historical center and main casinos. New building and tidy facilities. Internet available on living room, but weak signal on bedroom.

We initially planned to stay at the hotel for only one night. But the experience was so great that we prolonged our stay for another 2 nights. The apartment hotel is 1 main from the malecon which allow you an easy access to the guagua (local buses) taxis,cinema, restaurants. Sea front. The place is clean, the staff is friendly and... More

The rooms are huge here. You actually get a small apartment, and it is clean and well appointed. The air conditioning only cools the bedroom though. You must suffer in the bathrooms and living area. The WiFi is a bad joke. Very slow at best and doesn't work at all in the bedroom. You are attacked by urchins as soon... More

This is a great hotel. Very clean, attentive staff and great location near everything I needed. They also have added discounts for longer stays which is a great option. Highly recommended and would stay again!!

I stayed from March 3 to April 6. From the beginning it began very nice and friendly. But then the a horror story began. The A/C in 301 leaked all night. The lights flickered on and off in the morning. You couldn't leave any electrical device plugged in. My IPod woke up dead because the of the power situation. I... More

I had a great time at Hotel Shakey, I really Love the staff. Anything I needed, all I have to do is call the front desk. Free parking area. Thats big if you rent a car in Santo Domingo. Everything is Walking distance.

This hotel is situated across the street from the beach and is walking distance to restaurants,pharmacy, casinos and grocery stores. It is Italian owned and has an Italian style of decoration. While most guests are Italian, the staff all spoke English. This was a great hotel and for the price was terrific. Here are the pros and cons that should... More

Nice italian owned hotel in de colonial zone in Santo Domingo. 15 minute walk to the places to visit. Very friendly and helpfull staff. The hotel is very safe with a guard with a big shotgun in the front. Walking around in the neighbourhood is very safe, so don't get the wrong idea! The only annoying thing is the prostitutes... More

Great staff and safe free parking. Spacious ap, clean and nice, but very minimalistic style. "No charm". No view, looked straight into the ventilation-system at 4th floor. (But the view arn't that good further up either) One tv located in one of the bedrooms..would prefer to have one in the livingroom.
