My boyfriend and me stayed here two nights after our 8months trip thru america. This isn't just a hotel, it was the residence of the first gouverneur from the island (nicolas d.o.) and that's why it doesn't look like a normal hotel, it looks like a palace and you feel like houndrets of years ago... It's maybe the most comfortable...

We stayed here on three occasions during our trip to Dominican Republic, and were very impressed with the overall experience. The hotel is in the heart of Zona Colonial, possibly in its prettiest street. Service was generally excellent. On the occasion of our second arrival, I started fumbling through my papers to find our reservation, only to be welcomed back...

We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The room, the restaurant, and the concierge service was great. It is located in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo - within walking distance to many beautiful, historic sites. I would recommend it to everyone!
