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

Clean, modern hotel in old settings. Friendly, informative staff. Nothing is too much trouble to them. We stayed here for one night. We got a tour guide right outside the front door to show us the city. Most things are nearby. Resturants, bars and shopping are just round the corner. We would choose this hotel if we were ever back... More

During our 35 days in The Dominican Republic, one of the most exciting things on our bucket list was exploring the oldest European settlement in the Americas; Santo Domingo. We decided to take the 4 hour drive through the mountains towards the heart of the Dominican Republic during our last week on the island. We were not disappointed, read about... More
