“Spacious and clean, minimalistic.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Great staff and safe free parking. Spacious ap, clean and nice, but very minimalistic style. "No charm".
No view, looked straight into the ventilation-system at 4th floor. (But the view arn't that good further up either)
One tv located in one of the bedrooms..would prefer to have one in the livingroom.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Unparalleled - Relatively small, the quality of place will blow you away. Hotel Shakey is located across from the ocean on the corner of Avenida Pasteur and adjacent to some large casinos and small clubs. Incorrectly listed under "Bed and Breakfasts", Hotel Shakey is neither a B&B nor a hotel. Recently completed, a "one room" actually consists of a beautiful Italian designed and furnished apartment - living room, kitchen, bedroom, and two bathrooms - complete with interior woodwork, balconies, parking and 24 hr security at the door. No restaurant is necessary - there are plenty nearby (and don't forget you have a full kitchen at your disposal). An unbeatable value for the price. Just a short taxi drive to the Colonial Zone. Last but not least, I must mention the courtesy and friendliness of the staff - from the security guard, reception personnel, manager and owner. For a long term stay (or even a day or two), I highly recommend this "residence". Expect to see you again soon, Mario..

I was in this beautiful piace tor two weeks since mid february. Everything was excellent. Newly built with all the comforts and at really resanoble prices. Actually it is not a simple hotel but much much much more. Big apartment with one or two bedrooms. I am a single traveller so I booked a small apartment but it was really big with a really nice living room comfortable and big sofa table 4 chairs very well equipped kitchen big refrigerator and freezer. Then a batroom for my guests and one for me. The sleeping room with a really nice band big wardrobe comfortable King size bed big LCD television. There was a really nice balcony with a wonderful see of the Malecon. The cleening was excellent every day punctual very good big and cleen towels. The position is excellent next to Gran Hotel v centenario Crown Plaza where I paid an inscription at a very resanoble price and 'I cuse swimming'pool jacuzzi gym sauna. Very good restaurants nearby Staff really helpful and nice.

Along the sea, within walking distance of three casinos and restaurants, the new Hotel Shakey is beautifully designed with exquisite Italian taste. Room 602 has a great view of the ocean and the City. The room was clean, has 1 & 1/2 baths, a kitchen, wifi, cable tv and A/C. The staff is friendly and importantly the rates are reasonable. I would definitely stay there again when in the Dominican Republic.

Room Tip: Try to stay in #602 for beautiful views.

We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and can only say absolutely good things about our stay.
The website of the hotel speaks for its'self. What you see on their website is what you get and even more !!!.

The apts. are SUPER clean,,nice,,new !!!!! and offer you absolutely all comfort and commodity.
Service is excellent.Location is perfect and safe.

We STRONGLY recommend this small hotel.You pay less than what all other hotels on the Malecon strip can offer you but you get MUCH MORE for the price you pay at the SHAKEY !!!!.

Suggestion to the italian owner : Microwave in the apts.will be a great asset. That is the only thing we missed.

Room Tip: ask for a Ocean view room
