This is a great last minute place to stay for a last minute trip. For around $65 night including breakfast you can't complain. Be sure to ask for a room in the back. The front is very noisy with traffic. The mopeds and truck horns at 6am is quite unwelcoming. Always parking and is directly behind the jaragua hotel.

If you need to do a quick business trip to the Capitol and looking for a last minute bargain hotel this is your best bet. Very clean, walking distance to restaurants and the Malecone area. Service is very friendly and the guy at the front desk speaks very good English. Complimentary breakfast is given next door at the restaurant. Rooms... More

This is an ok hotel, but definitely not a 5 star by any stretch. The location is ok only a block away from the coast. It is central in Santo Domingo and close to the better hotels and a few casinos and night clubs. The rooms are rustic...but this is the Colonial area of Santo Domingo, so most buildings are... More

Clean place to stay. The rooms have some character with old, yet unique, furniture. The hotel is a close walk to the waterfront and a few good restaurants. The staff was helpful. Internet was weak in the room but great in the lobby, which was also a great little gathering area for travelers.

Was is Sto Dom for business. Picked the hotel as it was close to place of work. Close proximity to the waterfront. Does include breakfast.

The hotel is centrally located within walking distance of El Malecon=waterfront tourist corridor. Restaurants, shops, hotels & the Old Town=Zona Colonial area are within 1-3 miles. Price is right for this hotel, service is good, however, beware, the rooms on the front of the hotel are EXTREMELY noisy due to the HEAVY & CHAOTIC traffic on Avenida Independencia. Their free...

We liked this clean, small hotel in Santo Domingo. It was nicely decorated, modern and new. Friendly, attentive staff. Great book if you are on a budget. Breakfast included! Located near everything. Behind hotel Jaragua. Will return on our next trip.
