Last year, the renovation looked brand new. This year, the Caribbean mentality (build it but don’t maintain it) is starting to show. It’s the little things… a broken and missing button from the shower control… a malfunctioning plug in the sink… carpet that has started to buckle. Still… it seems to be one of the better hotels in Santo Domingo. The beds are very comfortable and the service is excellent.
So, we continue to recommend this hotel.
FYI – The breakfast buffet is good (and can be "included" with certain rates)… go for the crepes. The lunch buffet can be not so appetizing. Dinner is worse… order off the menu and try the “gourmet chicken”.
Re: The Taxis... negotiate the rate before you get in. Should be 200 pesos wherever.
