I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights only but, it was a great experience. Friendly staff, valet parking. Fast check in. We stayed at the regular room category. I was pleasantly surprised the room was updated and very clean. Spacious bathroom with great lighting for make up. ;-) Stay away from the mini bar; everything is over priced. The... More

The Hodelpa Gran Almirante is by far the best hotel option in Santiago, for business centrally located in town and for leisure as well. The breakfast buffet is alright has all the basics Dominican style. It has good size pool, basic gym and for those who like to gamble there is also a casino on site. There are some restaurant...

My wife and I were visiting family in Santiago and decided to book a hotel for the night. A family member who regularly stays at the Gran Almirante recommended we stay there. We chose the Imperial Club and were very impressed with the room and the service. We also enjoyed having breakfast in the lounge. Next time we visit Santiago... More

Well guys I am staying here right now. Room is clean and large. It is very noisy as there is a road directly outside the window. So pick your room carefully. Otherwise food is reasonable with a nice breakfast and the lobby is updated

The Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel in Santiago is an EXCELLENT hotel. I frequently stay at this hotel for business, about 6 to 7 times per month. The staff is very friendly, courteous and professional. I feel very welcomed here and treated like family. There is a bartender by the name of Freddy who is an AWESOME individual. Each time I... More

I've stayed here a few times for work. I have been told it's the nicest place in town to stay. They have a good breakfast included in the rate, which includes lots of fruit, some hot items, and made to order eggs. The service has always been good. A couple of downsides: if you don't get one of the renovated... More

I stay here frequently for business travels. The staff has become like a second family to me. Checking in, Jonathan always shakes his head and smiles really big like "weren't you just here?" Ha! Freddy, the bartender at pool is the best in the world. Elizabeth gives the best massage I've ever had. And the night security guys always make... More

Highly recommended as the staff is attentive, knowledgeable and will to make every occamidation. I recommend staying on thier 5th Floor which is synonymous with most VIP and Executive Lounge with drinks and food. More importantly is the fact that over the 2+ years that I have been traveling there the staff has remained the same and the quality and... More

Got to Santiago and cruising around we came across with this hotel. The front desk was great, the rooms were so clean that it looked like a palace. Breakfast included ( mmmm some mangu, delicious), laundry facility. This people are so friendly and professional, that they make you feel like a celebrity. We are looking forward to go back and...
