You get value for money here. The outside is gorgeous, the lobby very hip and modern, the location is fantastic. You can easily walk to the main shopping street in Zona Colonial and it's restaurants, Plaza Espana it's one block away (where the best and most romantic restaurants are). However, the rooms are basic. It's kind of you entered one hotel and end up sleeping at a different one. Don't get me wrong, the bed is okay and the bathroom is clean, and that is all you need, but you kind of get carried away when you are checking in and the rooms don't follow what you see downstairs.
They put us in a room that had no windows, but one phone call to the front desk and we got a nicer room with a balcony. Service is good. Breakfast is decent: juices, coffee, tea, some fruit, bread, ham, cheese, butter and eggs with sausage.
One piece of advice though: the room with the balcony is very noisy. The street is kind of busy and some dominicans like to honk the horn when getting to an intersection at night.You get used to, and after a long day of sight seeing and some fantastic dinner, you fall asleep pretty fast anyway.
