I’ve stayed here multiple times and I request the corner balcony suite. Enjoy a traditional Santo Domingo experience from the balcony, people watch locals and tourists alike as they navigate the central plaza, and hop downstairs to enjoy a cup of coffee in their open-air cafe. The service is always friendly, room clean and water hot.

Amazing place to visit for 3 or 5 days Vacations. The location is perfect, extraordinary costumer services, proffesional staff. The Conde De Peñalba Hotel sound is a traditional and mandatory place to visit if you want to feel the essence of Sto. Dgo. Colonial Zone down Town, close to more than 200 or 300 places: Museums, cafes, gallery, gift shop, restaurants and music. Available and easy parking, close to the Hotel. Ask for information. Affordable Restaurant with bounche of diverse food, beer and wines. Also, safe yet surprising festive area for tourist 24 hours I highly recommend this Hotel. We will be back soon.

Made the reservation online and paid for it. However when I checked in the boy at the front desk “couldn’t find my reservation”. I then showed him my emailed reservation. He said they dont rent the rooms for that price and would have to pay twenty dollars more. I then showed him my bank statement with-drawl and the description of the room I had paid for. He then said I would have to wait for the room. I just want to relax and enjoy myself on vacation. I am getting real tired of the “Dominican Hustle”. One hour later I had my room.

I arrived really late. Hotel organised taxi to pick me up at airport which was great. Check in was quick. Only downside was the room. It didn't have a window to the outside but to the stairwell so was stuffy and hot and no a/c. I was tired and figured it's just for a few hours. I looked at the other rooms with windows the next day and they are great with balconies and views of the plaza. I like that the hotel has a lively bar restaurant on the ground floor and the location is just across from the cathedral so right in the center of things
