If you want to go to Santo Domingo and explore the Colonial Zone I must say this hotel is great for your stay. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the Colonial Zone. Most of the attractions are on the far side from the hotel but the hotel is in fact, located in a decent area because there is...

This is a small hotel, with small rooms and wonderful staff. It is the middle of it all and in a place very near where my great grandparents lived. The area is very busy and is close to everything. The rooms are a great deal and have the essentials that you need specially for the price. If you are traveling...

A complete flop, never been in a worst hotel. To start, is a noisy location to sleep. No WIFI (like being promoted), poor A/C funtion, the cable wasn't working, a very small elevator that only 2 persons with a small luggage can fit inside. Matresses and bed in bad shape. I personally would not recomend it.

Made the reservation online through a major website about two hours before showing up at the hotel past 10 PM. The hotel is very centrally located, which is good and bad. Coming in, we were greeted by the front desk attendant who was not able to pull up a copy of our booking because only Administration had access to it...
