During 3 days visit of Santo Domingo stayed in this hotel. Small room but nice and neat. Friendly staff, good breakfast. Historical place. Perfect location all historical sites of Zona Colonial very close. I'd like to visit this hotel again.

We turned up on the doorstep of El Beaterio having disembarked from a sailing yacht and been unable to access any wifi for advance booking. The Lonely Planet guide, as well as recommending this small, converted nunnery, gives a rave review to the more expensive Sofitel which sounded like a special treat for our two nights in Santo Domingo.

Great location and charming building. The receptionist left us in registration to write a welcome card to place in our room along with lighted candles. So sweet! The walls are thin and every breath and murmur can be heard.

What a fantastic place to stay! Perfect location in the Zona Colonial, near shopping, restaurants and landmarks. The hotel is clean, warm, and nicely appointed. The staff is incredibly helpful and nice. And the price is right. A beautiful, peaceful lodging option.

I stayed here for two nights, and found the hotel very satisfactory. They had arranged for the pick up from the airport, and I reached here safely. The best part of the hotel was its proximity to the Colonial Zone. The First Cathedral and the Parque Colon are within a short five mins walk. The room was nice, and the... More

I originally was going to stay at Casa Del Sol, but was somewhat forced out of my room (with advance notice) due to a large booking. I'm now very glad this happened, as I chose to spend a little extra money and stay at El Beaterio instead. It was worth it. Hotel is beautiful. Staff very friendly, some of them... More
