The rooms are not big enough but you can rest very well, the hotel is located in the colonial area of Santo Domingo and you can enjoy it if your are a museum lover. You can walk all around visiting historic places and tapas restaurants.

The hotel is right in the historic part of Santo Domingo so don't expect a grand hotel. It is limited by the regulations of the area in keeping the historicity of the area intact.

The staff was excellent. They were always going above and beyond. My only complaint are the thin walls. You can hear your neighbors pretty clear. If you go in the bathroom, you get a full audio of your neighbors bathroom habits. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.
