A hotel was a bit over-budget for us but two people in DR recommended to stay this place, so I tried one night (with a breakfast package).
We stayed in a modern/contemporary room, a bath room, a separate shower booth, minibar, with a view of a river. We noticed that the hotel lobby is 3rd floor.. we stayed on 4th/highest floor which is nice. Room is clean, we liked a pool, a hotel ground is very spacious (room is a bit small side). A breakfast was nice and plenty (my DR friends said that they ate there sometimes as a "treat" for themselves. I was a bit concerned about reports of the theft in this review so try to be put any valuables in a safety box. Nothing happened to us. We broke a drinking glass and a room attendant came to clean it immediately. No extra charge. Also two bottles of water is complementary, which is also nice.
The location is very nice, very closed to the Columbus House and everything yet quiet.
So, I recommend anyone who wants to have a "memorable" stay for one night or two, or some extra $ to spend very relaxing stay for longer days, I recommend this hotel.
