Was just here for a night, but a really good location right in th middle of the historical/colonial district of the city. Walk out the front door and there are numerous sights to see. Enjoyed dinner in the courtyard area. Makes you feel you aren't in the middle of a large capital city. Service was nice. Rooms are fine. Real...

Beautiful colonial architecture with colonial Sto Domingo at your door step. The colonial rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with modern bathroom facilities. An expensive hotel but great for a romantic get-away or celebration. Apparently a davorite for Zfrench businessmen but other tourists as well. A drink around the pool in the evenning is s must.
