From the outside, the hotel isn't much but inside it's very pleasant. There are only 11 rooms on three floors and all are furnished very nicely in a modern style. The bathroom components are from IKEA and the shower is huge!!! (The only thing lacking is a hairdryer). I had a room on the top floor with a private balcony. The hotel staff is very nice and friendly and accommodating. Most of them are Haitian so I was able to speak French as well as Spanish in Santo Domingo, something I would have never expected. The air conditioning is needed, even in January. There is free wi-fi plus a computer downstairs for guests to use. A very ample breakfast is provided, too. If it weren't for the barking dog and loud music coming sometimes from the neighbors, I would have given the hotel an excellent rating, but that's not the hotel's fault.
