Found this hotel on trip advisor and were not disappointed, especially for the price. This is a boutique hotel, in a beautiful old world building, that has been renovated. Courtyard is gorgeous! Our room was on the top floor and there were some issues with water pressure. Otherwise, the room was spacious. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. Location is EXCELLENT, for checking out the tourist zone of Santo Domingo - everything was in walking distance. Originally when we arrived in the evening, it seemed to be in a "shady area", but in the morning we saw that it was quite safe - a lot of tourist police around. The hotel is ~25mins from the airport. Breakfast was basic, although they were making eggs, which I cared about. Overall, not a "modern hotel", but definitely a place with charm and culture and recommended for a stay in SD.
