Wonderful, inexpensive colonial hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 25, 2006

The service was wonderful. I paid 76.50 for a standard room with a king-sze bed, a TV, refrigerator, desk with free wired internet access (the electric outlets are exactly like in the US so no problems there), and a large bathroom with a shower. The only meal available is a buffet breakfast for $7.75 with cooked-to-order eggs, great coffee and juice, fruit, etc.

Unique Quality: The hotel is the former home of an 18th century Dominican President. It is located in the center of the Colonial Zone, only a few blocks from most of the major colonial sites, and only 1/2 block from the main pedestrian thoroughfare, El Conde, where several tourist police are stationed on every block for safety. It definitely has the feel of a colonial home -- beautiful rooms with tile floors, extensive dark wood paneling, tons of artwork everywhere, and quiet, cool patios.

Directions: In the center of Zona Colonial

Wonderful, inexpensive old hotel

I love staying here. The building is the 18th century home of a former President and certainly has the feel of a colonial home. The service is great, English is spoken, and breakfasts ($7.75) are buffet style with cooked-to-order eggs and great coffee and juice. My room was a standard which was quite comfortable for me, though the key is needed to keep the electricity on everywhere except the bathroom so when you leave the air conditioner is turned off. Fortunately, it cools the room very quickly when you return.

Unique Quality: The hotel is the former home of an 18th century President. It has several courtyards and the rooms have tiled floors and extensive dark wood paneling reminiscent of a colonial home. Beautiful colonial artwork can be found in every room. It is only 1/2 block from the main pedestrian thoroughfare in the Colonial Zone, El Conde which has several tourist police stationed on every block, and is centrally located only 3-5 blocks from most of the major colonial sites.
