This classic and historic hotel occupies the absolute best location within the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo - directly across from the park and cathedral. The first floor of this hotel is a restaurant that joins a very popular outdoor cafe. All of the staff are attentive and friendly. I would recommend one of the larger double rooms - 2 queen sized beds, high ceilings, large balcony overlooking the park. Adequate bathroom - plenty of hot water, and great A/C. Fairly extensive menu that's reasonably priced. The lobby is on the second floor (and invisible from the street). From either your balcony or the cafe it's a people watcher's paradise - and made extra special by the courtesy of the staff. For $40 the hotel will have their taxi waiting for you at the airport. Obviously I'm going to return. Pay the few extra dollars for a double room and balcony. You're not going to regret it.
