I did not choose this hotel. I was attending a business meeting and the organizers of the meeting picked the hotel. That said, it is in a wonderful location to see the old city of Santo Domingo. Everything in the old city is in easy walking distance and the buildings and museums are delightful. The hotel itself is very comfortable and satisfactory - not spectacular but a good value, especially when you consider the wonderful location.
The room was small but comfortable. As other reviewers have noted, there is a very weird high step up to the shower. There was a grab-bar, but even so, I nearly fell one morning getting out of the shower. Be very careful. The only other problem is that there was only one plug available for charging electronics and other devices. I had to unplug the lamp to use it. I recommend bringing an extension cord or a multi-socket plug if you have lots of devices to charge. There was no clock in the room so bring an alarm clock if you will need to use one. Wifi is free but it did not work well in my room, so I had to sit in the lobby to get online. Not a big problem, but a bit inconvenient.
Because of the meeting that I was attending, I had three breakfasts, two lunches and one dinner in the restaurant. Again, all were satisfactory but nothing was spectacular, except the mashed potatoes, which were wonderful.
All in all, a good hotel and one that I would stay in again if I am ever in Santo Domingo.
