great

Overall the most impressive thing about the hotel was the staff. Very professional and accommodating. The hotel itself is pretty adequate, rooms are small but clean. The breakfast wasn't bad either. Great location,

Central Location but Old, Noisy, and Tired

This place could be great if it was completely renovated but right now it is over priced. The location is right in the Centro Historic district. The lobby is quite nice. Other than that, it wasn't a worthwhile stay. The rooms are generally tiny and shabby. The ones facing the street at extremely noisy. The hotel is old and noise travels fast through the walls. The hot water never worked. For the 70 odd bucks I paid I was really dissappointed.

DO NOT STAY HERE!

The road to the hotel is completely torn out. You cannot access the hotel or park near it at all. Imagine having to park 3-4 blocks away, PAY for a PLACE TO PARK and walk through with all of your belongings in the street for everyone to see? Bad situation waiting to happen to someone. Parking $10 a day. The hotel was basically empty as a result and then wanted to clip me for $25 a day for an additional guest yet online the price was the same for 1 or 2 people. So if you want to PAY for parking, WALK 3 BLOCKS to your HOTEL, GET SCAMMED and have to pay extra because they are losing business, then step right up and get taken. I will NEVER go back to this hotel ever again and I had stayed there 3 times before with no issues. The new owners are not like the old ones at this place, buyer beware.

great location, priced right

Stayed for a night to take in SD after a week on the beach. Bfast was basic, coffee and toast muffins, etc. Dont expect awesome buffet. Pros: -location: super close to zona colonial -simple, clean rooms. Cons: -wifi signal is pretty terrible. They should fix this. -takes a little while for hot water for shower. Great for quick stays, but id want something nicer if staying for longer stays in DR.

Not too bad - great location!

Although the location of this hotel is ideal, the furnishings and cleanliness of the room are lacking. That being said, free wifi and the rooftop breakfast are certainly nice touches...

Good place for a sigle traveller

My first room had no street view, which I did not mind. However I was able to lock the door, the staff immediately moved me to a room with a balcony. It was very nice. All!!! the staff was extremely helpful. Their food is also very good, if decide to dine in. Breakfast is so,so, but It will get you going. I felt It is a very safe area.
