I stayed here a few nights and the experience was wonderful. Service is incredible. Bar staff is attentive and friendly. Front desk service could use some work. I had to at several times get my key re-authorized as it stopped working. If there was another patron being attended to I was not even acknowledged with a "Be with you in... More

Besides the history of this hotel wich was habitated by the first governor of the island Señor Nicolás de Ovando, the comfort and the luxury in its most simple way makes of this hotel the classic of the colonial area.

The hotel is in a lovely old building in the heart on historic Santo Domingo. The location is great and the hotel has lots of old world charm. The room was fairly small but comfortable with some great original features. I was disappointed that the hotel did not acknowledge my accor status, no welcome drink was offered and no room... More

I lived in this hotel for about 10 weeks in summer, 2015. My company paid for the stay so I don´t have a feel for how expensive it was, but the experience was awesome. This is a ~500 year old building so every day felt like traveling back in time. The hotel is beautiful and I enjoyed simply wandering the... More

I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend in June 2016. The location is great and in the beautiful colonial area of Santo Domingo. The hotel is beautiful, quaint, and quiet. It would be ok for a night or weekend stay but there is not enough to offer for an extended stay. The main problem is the prices at the... More

Staff was excellent and the best part but hotel is way over priced , nothing special in the room decor or style , would not pay 200 a night again for this I'm sure there are better options . Location is great and again staff amazing but it doesn't make up for it

Beautiful hotel in the heart of "Zona Colonial". I personally love to stay in hotels where i can feel the essence of the country, and this was perfect. Lots of common areas with fountains, gardens and traces. The room was lovely and the bed was super comfy. In the morning, the breakfast buffet was really good. The only complain that... More
