Clean, friendly, GREAT service

A short stay (just one night), but quite nice. Excellent service (good English speaking), clean.... overall a good experience. Seems like a good value.

Comments on hotel stay

[...] The check-in was delayed, couldn't check in until 5 p.m. Room was below standard and was changed to another room. No wash cloths, lights were below standard and did not work properly. TV should have been replaced 20 years ago. The luggage rack and ironing board were missing. The beds are in need of new ones. My roomate left the firt day. I could go on with more details of this most unpleasant stay. [...]

Strongly recommended

I travel regularly to Santo Domingo and this was among the best of hotels for the price that I have yet visited. Nice historical value, solid exercise facilities, huge olympic sized pool (or so), great gym, plus the rare Hispaniolan Parakeets that nest in the trees in the parking lot. Come to the parking lot between 7 and 9 pm to hear the parakeets go bananas with all their calling. Shoot, the balconies that nearly all of the rooms have makes the stay worthwhile. Great views in all directions. Only critiques: the pool was not as clean as I would have liked and came away with some swimmers itch after each use, plus the air conditioning is difficult to control in your rooms as the controls are unclear.

Wont stay again!!!

First of all, my room had outdated decor and the bathroom tub had the paint chipped everywhere, got ripped towels...ARE U KIDDING ME!!!. No ice machine on the 3rd floor. NO coffee maker.No ironing board. To top it all they wanted to charge me U$50.00 extra of something I didnt consume from Cotorra bar. The place needs some real attention!!! DO NOT GO THERE.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

You should go to La Sirena store on Churchill ave which has lots of Dominican goodies to buy as present and for yourself (dominican rum, sweets,clothes), also Plaza Central on Churchill ave on first floor can find the ambar and larimar store.

Its for the birds....

There was a funny smell along the hallways. Also if you are trying to sleep before 10:30pm forget about it! There is a swarm of birds outside that keep making noise until about that time.

Great business base

Just a 2-day business stay, but price was very reasonable for a well-located, grand older hotel. (Big price difference with other international hotels.) Not a spiffy, modern hotel but everything worked and the staff was great. Rooms and closets are huge. Room safe is large. Bath's fine but TV is smallish, with a few English channels. Didn't try in-room internet but standard set-up was there. Business center handled my faxing needs professionally; front desk and bell/doorman staffs were helpful and friendly; buffet breakfast spread was a full meal. As a traveling businesswoman, I felt secure here.
