Great location, unique grounds.

If you are looking for a different, yet great stay, this is the hotel. Right in the heart of the Colonial Area this hotel has a unique look and feel. No indistinct hallways full of rooms. It´s more like a small villa. Beautiful.

Perfect location in the Zona Colonial

If you are staying in Santo Domingo and want to experience the Colonial Zone, this is the perfect location! You can easily walk to most of what you would want to see in the historical center of the city. And the views on both sides are terrific. The hotel is also top-notch - beautiful rooms and baths, and wonderful, attentive staff. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful hotel

This is a beautiful, historic hotel in Santo Domingo. We enjoyed our one night stay even though we didn't partake in the breakfast because we were trying to maximize our budget. They have a beautiful pool and lobby bar that is expensive but has some delicious and unique food choices. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Stay

I really had a great time there. It is a really cozy hotel. The staff was amazing!!! Great welcome! I only had an issue with the location although there was construction going on but the area wasn't pleasant to the eyes. I will go back and I will suggest my family and friends to go there.

Great hotel, probably best in City

Great location in Colonial district. Plenty of places to see and eat in walking distance. Very safe area. Hotel is in fantastic condition, spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate in staying here again and would recommend the hotel to anyone. Looking forward to a trip back.
