“Worth it for the gym alone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I stayed here for two weeks for business travel. I have a hard time working out while on the road because hotels consider a "gym" to be a sole treadmill in a room with mirrors on the wall. The BQ does have the afformentioned gym; HOWEVER, they give you free access to a gym about a 7 min. walk away that is by far the nices gym I've been to in my life. You have to see it to believe it. It's a safe area so don't be afraid to walk there.

I also love the restaurant here. It has an indoor part and an outdoor part, and with the DR's fantastic climate you can sit outside any time of day or night. After a long day of work it's nice to sit on the patio for a drink or a long dinner- if I lived here it's a place I would come back to to hang out.

The staff of the hotel and the restaurant are very friendly. The rooms feel old, but they clean them up pretty nice. If you stay here, I hope you like waking up to the sound of roosters (I do).

If you are here between October and February make sure you catch a baseball game of the Tigres de Licey (the Yankees of the DR). If you are here on the weekend check out the historic center. When you ask about the beach people will tell you about Punta Cana and Boca Chica. I went to Punta Cana, it's very upscale, you won't find a lot of Dominican's, but you will find a lot of Europeans. The beach is beautiful, but don't let people in Santo Domingo tell you it's 45 minutes away- it's not, it's more like 2:30 - 3 hours. I didn't go to Boca Chica, but it's a lot closer and it's where the Dominicans go.

Great location! Fantastic staff!!!! This was my first visit to this hotel/brand and I was impressed with the quality of service. Even thou the rooms might need a little bit of more upgrade, it was great! The staff is extremely friendly- always greeted you with a big smile, made you feel welcome. Upon check in the following individuals welcome me with a big smile and made me feel as we were long time friends: Yameli V. and Alvaro A. And of course, the bellman Edwin F. During the course of my stay (5 nights) in different occasion each employee I encountered were great! Front Desk staff: Jordi N.; Leonardo S.; Jesus F. The cleanliness of the room was superb too! Thanks to Santica, Eugenia and Miguelina. Breakfast buffet- wow the food was superb, presentation very nice and all the staff in the restaurant was great too!!! (sorry I didn't get all their names)Upon checkout I made reservations to return next year!!!!! Anyone going to the Dominican Republic, should stay at this hotel!!!!!

We've stayed at BQ Hotel for 2 nights. The staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are pretty big and clean. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood and has a private parking. I would recommend BQ for any traveler who need a stress-less stay in Santo Domingo.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first building are newer.

An excellent location, service and restaurant. It has a very nice lounge and pool at the roof with a great view. Front desk is always helpful. There are various stores and drugstores around and the restaurant is magnificent. Rooms are big and clean, the bed was not very comfortable but nothing else to complain about.

Had a penthouse suite in April of 2013.
had a few friends stay there with us. Total 3 suites with double rooms in each.
Clean, great price, great restaurants, great pool, great drinks, friendly staff.
what else could you ask for in Santo Domingo. If you are not staying at an all inclusive and want to be in the city. this is the stylish place you want to be. Central to many attractions and you really get the city feel. We had quiet nights and we also partied out butts off. The pool area always had special surprises like model photo shoots and a runway show. Most of the time it was mellow and the food was top notch. I highly recommend the Spanish tortilla with tomato bisque for dipping. bartenders, maid service, front desk and bellmen were all awesome. only thing is when I laundered my shirts they came back shrunk. My favorite shirt became a belly shirt. if you seen my belly you would not want to see me in that. lol
I will return, and just wash my clothes in the shower and hang dry them if need be.
oh yeah, they have a free breaky but we never made it. watched 5 sunrises out of 7 days.
Tapas bar was great too.

Room Tip: I believe it was the north side was better view. one side was next to a school and no view. the good...
