Residencial La Fonte
Ranked #8 of 76 Santo Domingo B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We've stayed several times at the Residencial La Fonte and have always been very happy. There's enough space in the rooms, and everything is very clean. All you need (A/C, ceiling fan, safe,TV, fridge etc.) at an excellent price. The reception staff is extremely nice and helpful. It's important to make a reservation, as the reception is closed after 6pm. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Room Tip: Rooms on the patio side are quieter.

While i have rated this hotel poor, i would like to point out that rating only denotes the quality of the habitation itself. I have made a career out of finding and staying in cheap hotels. for the money, this is a good buy. the proprieters are very helpful and pleasant. they certainly add to the value of the stay. the edifice itself is old and run down like an old shoe you don't want to throw away. i would happily stay there again

We are senior citizens who were looking for an affordable, clean, centrally located place where we could cook some of our meals, a quiet place where the staff was friendly and it was safe. We found all those things at La Fonte. While staying there for 25 days we found out the service was reliable and courteous, the place was kept clean and at night, although it was next to a club and younger people were staying, we didn't hear any disturbing noises. The security is good, while there we didn't experience any electric blackouts or problems with water supply. La Fonte is near the center of the Colonial Zone, it is within walking distance to museums, shopping, ( Calle El Conde ), Beware being a foreigner that you do not stand out like a sore thumb while walking the streets, specially the market area in Avenida Mella There are people in motoconchos, motorcycles, who stalk tourists from a distance and pounce at the first opportunity, after, at times, following for blocks while one is being a tourist, taking pictures, etc. Do not wear jewelry, not even custom while on foot. If you wear a gold chain, even if you tuck inside the front, they check the back of the neck and pull it and take off on the motorcycles. Be careful walking with purses on the outside of the sidewalk, and be careful with wallets, cameras or anything valuable, best to leave this things in the safe of the hotel. These suggestions are not a reflection of La Fonte, only things you should be aware of any place in Dominican Republic, day or night if you are a tourist. I am Cuban and my partner is Dominican, we are seniors but youthful and we were always standing out as if we were not from there, so just use caution. All in all, when we return to the Dominican Republic, we will follow the same advice given here about safety, also do not go out at night alone, but will definitively stay at La Fonte as there is no better place for the price, and no better service elsewhere for any amount of money. Hope you try the place, you won't regret it.
