I have been staying at this hotel every year for the past 5 years. I have seen it deteriorating every years. What a shame. Because its in a perfect location right in the middle of Santiago, D.R. The check in process is very good and easy. There is a gentleman there who is a doorman named Jose. He is very helpful and can direct you too anywhere you would like to go. Two thumbs up for him. I arrived to the room which appeared nice a cozy. It had a 80's television set. Which I don't mind too much because I don't watch that much T.V anyway. But what really got me was one evening I was taking a shower and the water ran out. I was full of soap. Unreal this has never happened to me in any hotel or resort that I have visited. Shm... Realistically, The only good thing about this hotel anymore is that it is centrally located and the tiles on the floor. If you can find another location do so.
I had to stay a few extra days in DR and i spent them in Santiago, i went to this hotel, it was very fine for the price, around 50$USD a night. The hotel itself need to revamp a little but still, for me it was ok, i slept very well, it was very quiet and it did surprised me because this hotel is located in the noisiest street of the city, Calle Del Sol. Even though i didn't go, i was told they were offering free breakfast every morning from 6:30 to 10:30, also WiFi is free and works very well. I recommend this hotel if you ever go to Santiago.
First let me say that I stayed here for a short time a few years ago. They were renovation the inside, specifically the lobby area. Anyway, from what I remembered, they had ok rooms, it felt small and cramped because the small window overlooked the parking lot and not enough light came through. Other than that. it was located in the central of the city which is a positive and they had parking in the back. The price for rooms at the time was reasonable also.
The reasoning of me choosing Aloha Sol was the reasonable price as there really are not too many options in that category that is centrally located in the city. That being said, I recommend only a night or two stay as the street noise is horrible in the rooms. The windows in the room are so pathetic, one could hear a dog fart from the street sidewalks the windows are so bad. The curtains were an eye sore as they were stained. Not to mention the front lobby sliding door. By orders from the arrogant owner of the hotel, the lobby door from the street is open day and night..to SAVE money to not use an air conditioner. Too cheap to keep the customer satisfied will long term bring a business down. I truly feel bad for the staff as they have to work in the noisy lobby with pollution flowing into the lobby 24/7. Generally the staff was ok and did their best to what they have to work with. I could have given a worse overall rating but they prevented that with their efforts to satisfy. The owner of this establishment should be ashamed of himself, he has plenty of wealth from many businesses, he is a tight wad that pinches small pesos to benefit his large bank account. Sorry folks, I just call it how it is..TRUTH
Decent hotel for a short stay in Santiago. Close to restaurants and bars, as well as the highway to the airport. Upon check-in, I had an issue with my room and was quickly moved to a better room. I would stay here again.
I had no reservation and decided to try this hotel on recommendation of a local friend from Santiago. Staff spoke functional English. Hotel pictures I see here are exactly how the place looked EXCEPT...The actual bedroom I was in was far superior to the pictures. The bathroom was huge with space for 3 people with no problem. The room had a waiting area with a couch , small fridge, tv, and various other things. I visited 5 hotels during my stay and this one was by far the nicest and cleanest.It was also the only one I found that offered a free breakfast that I felt safe eating. Hotel staff always available to help. 24/7 security right outside but there was a good police presence also so it felt safe for family to walk around even at night. Anything you wanted to do you could walk to or jump in a car right outside the door. I can't think of a bad thing about this place everything was perfect. Restaurant on site was very nice and extremely quiet. You can get just about anything on the menu for 500 pesos. Just remember the sales tax is 18% in the DR.
Spacious rooms, nice bathroom with all the facilities. The location is great as you can walk to good restaurants. I would recommend this hotel. No complains. I should mentioned that we didn't have a reservation but the receptionist was very helpful and accommodated us within 10 minutes.
My Family and I were at Aloha sol on April and like the other three tomes we have been there it was a great experience. Even tho the wifi signal is not good in every floor and other little problems we had with the shower, overall we always enjoy our stay in Aloha Sol. We love the people there , I mean the customer service is unique and the location. We also love their free breakfast.
Located perfectly in the heart of Santiago, Just a few minutes from the monuments were all the Restaurants are at and a quick walk to their shopping district. That being said; The place is a little over priced. most of the staff is friendly and house keeping is great. The rooms are ok, showers improvement. I had to be moved 4 times in 1 day cause of the shower not working. On the plus side they have free breakfast. WiFi is not great but its manageable over all its a good place for short stay.
Nice rooms, really liked, But the A/C was too noisy in the room I stayed. Very comfortable bathroom and spacious room. The staff is nice also. Overall not so good sleep because of the noise. I was up in the fifth floor which is quiet from the outside. The Wify needs to be improved.
