What a lovely hotel this is. I travel a lot and it stayed in everything from 5 stars to 2 star hotels. When I first came into the hotel I was surprised at how much character there was. it reminded me of a San Francisco Victorian house.. with a touch of Caribbean flare. when I got to my room I was really surprised how nicely furnished everything was. the bathroom was extremely nice with features: I did not expect.
I tend to remember hotels with personality and character. I will remember this one.
for me location is important. I prefer to be a short distance from the action. Within a couple minute very safe walk your in the heart of the colonial zone. when I decided I had enough I can retreat to a peaceful setting.
Sven and Rose are the kind of managers I would want to have if I owned a hotel. Very helpful down to earth. Rose even walked with me to my car and drove with me to a better parking area.
if you're a person who values a personal feel.. a more qaint experience..location.. and quality I very highly recommend this place.
After driving through Santo Domingo in rush hour... this was truly like an oasis. The experience of staying here makes me want to come back and spend more time in Santo Domingo.
Thanks Rose and Sven ..and staff.
