“a four turd hotel.............................”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

this is one where my modus operandi of exclusively seeking out cheap hotels backfired on me. while i can say some kind things about the staff. they were pleasant enough. of course, there's no excuse for not being so. the lobby was nice. the restaurant was nice. the rooms were on a par with most wino flophouses to be found in the mission district of san francisco. to add to the general atmosphere of bottom crawling, the street outside was heaped with trash that looked like it had been there from new year's eve 1973 and if you ever wondered what a dysfunctional sewer system looked or smelled like, there were plenty of manhole covers missing and holes in the street to gape at. it destroyed my faith in cheap. spread the largesse elsewhere, my friend, i know i will.

Reviewed 23 October 2012

our visit was very nice. We had to change apartments because the one on the first floor was old and the ac wasn't good. The next day they gave us one on the second floor and it was a lot newer and everything was working fine. The two bedrooms were very confortable, 5 beds in all. We didn't like the idea of having to go to the lobby to use internet... because we have small kids... We also couldn't make calls, it made our planning and getting information a bit hard. Most of the apartments are ocupied on a permanent basis... the restaurant is average. It's not in the zona colonial, it's a block or two away and the surroundings are not that great to go out walking in that direction. We enjoyed going out all day and then we would come back to a nice fresh apartment. The price is quite good for what you get.

Room Tip: second floor apartments are nicer

Arrived in a Santo Domingo suffering the effects of tropical storm Isaac, so no street lights and not much operating, including wifi. Hotel room was clean and freshly decorated. However I only discovered that the hot water was not running the following morning when it was too late to get it sorted before leaving. Location for me was perfect as it is on the edge of the colonial town and quiet while still in walking distance to main attractions.

this hotel is a big trick. it has a great location, but the service(housekeeper, front desk, security) none of those employees make anything about to resolve the customer's complain. not manager or supervisor availables and any moment. the owner (she) never appear. the electricity is horrible and the generator's hotel never was working during my stayed. 2 days without water and the room. early in the morning(730am) the employees make noise in the corridor close to my room (N-260). the parking guard don't allow the taxy going into the hotel, because 2 taxy belong the hotel, pay it. the prices in the restaurant are very expensive compare with the others restar\urants close to hotels. and the room service is the worst.

Room Tip: none, don't stay in this hotel.

Let me make it clear I LOVE THIS HOTEL!!!!! OH MY GOSH God really does work in mysterious ways. The senior spansh class of my high school went on a trip to the Domncan Republc in an attempt to prepare us for CXC orals that is in April of this year (everybody who sees this please say a prayer for my class that we all pass our spanish exam :) ♥ ). After that awful experience at Dona Elvira which by the way was the scamming hotel we had originally selected as our accommodation but encountered huge problems with we were lucky to find the lovely Plaza Colonial. Pointing out that it has great security and a very honest staff this hotel would make anyone want to come back to visit the DR again and again. To you food lovers the hotel provides you with Breakfast and let me tell you it was ohh too yummy im sure i put on a pound or two because of how much i ate and for you all that just love to take a dip in some water Plaza Colonial has a swimming pool that saw my friends and myself pretty much every night. I can go on and on about how great this hotel is but long story short its your ideal home away from home and I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A GOOD PLACE TO STAY WHILE VISITING THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC :)

Room Tip: You can basically do eenie meennie minny moe they're all great

Though this hotel was not one of our first choice it turned out to be something somewhat amazing, which made us wonder why it wasn't on our list. I totally disagree with previous negative reviews pertaining to plaza colonial as the staff and manager are very welcoming. The area is very secure and provided us with reassurance. At 3:00 in the morning after the ill treatment which we receive from hotel "Dona Elvira" Plaza Colonial opened their door to us and gave us a a very spacious well equipped room as opposed to what Dona Elvira was trying to do ; which was to fit 16 girls in two rooms at Plaza each girl could sleep quite well. Though we were only there for 3 nights it was nice. I recommend this to anyone wishing to enjoy themselves
