“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Stayed one night in August on a trip from Punta Cana.
This one-star hotel rated very high both here and on Booking.com, and I can see why. It is small, clean hotel, very quiet but just a few steps from Cathedral and Plaza de Espana. A/c worked fine, the room was cold and the shower hot.
But beyond that it is a beautiful romantic place. I felt like I stay at my friend's house - some 400 years ago. I was in a top floor - room and terrace, and the view of the crumbling old town and Caribbean sea ....aaaahh!!!

Stayed here for 1 night on a solo journey to Santo Domingo in order to visit the historical sights of the Colonial District. I could not have been happier with my stay.

From the outside it does not look like much and if you aren't paying attention you just might walk by it. However, this just added to the charm. I was greeted by a big smile from the person on service at the front desk, Jean. After my check-in (and paying the very affordable $80US for my 1 night stay), he showed me around the hotel and my room, and made sure he answered any and all questions I had. My room was great, new amenities with a nice and clean shower, big bed and working AC. I was then within walking distance of all the cultural sites of the Colonial district, as well as the Hard Rock Café and a few other restaurants located around Plaza Colòn.

The rest of the staff was super friendly and helpful as well. Special mention to Kervens who helped me plan my trip back to Punta Cana, gave me a few tips about the Colonial zone & Santo Domingo, shared some pleasant stories with myself and another guest at night then served me my delicious (and included) breakfast in the morning.

All in all, it was a great experience and I'd gladly stay here again. I'd just like to add that this hotel is even more fun for any french-speaking person. The entire staff (at the time of my stay) is of haitian origin, and thusly speak french, meaning you'll be sure to have no communication problems. Furthermore, many guests were french-speaking as well, giving us all a point in common and allowing us to have interesting conversation at night over a beer in the lobby or in the morning at breakfast.

Stayed here for a night before moving onto Punta Cana. The staff is very, very friendly. They will make you feel right at home. The hotel is in the center of Zona Colonial so there is plenty to see and do, including some cool little bars (and the Hard Rock) And shopping. It's literally a block away from a Fort. For the price, cleanliness and location, I would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay in the Colonial Zone. It is at the quiet end of Calle Isabel la Catholica but near the Cathedral and El Conde shopping .... maybe a 3 minute walk. We got a slightly reduced rate of $70 which includes a hot breakfast and makes this the best bargain in the city. The hotel is very clean, staff extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are quaint and comfortable. It is small (maybe 7 rooms) but we did not want a traditional hotel .... the room we had was a good size with a bacony, washroom with shower, air conditioning and comfortable bed. The sheets are paper thin and need to be replaced but that is my only negative. Staff helped with directions and calling a taxi for us.

I would stay here in a heartbeat!

Nothing outside this small hotel in an old building at the quiet, non-tourist end of Calle Isabel la Catolica in Zone Colonial suggests there's even a hotel here. The sign "Casa Naemie" can mean anything. But step inside and you're greeted by a very friendly staff (directed long distance by owners in France) and the house cat, and they will quickly make you feel welcome. The narrow, open-air, inside courtyard leads to the few rooms in four levels, all recently remodeled with subtle touches of IKEA (which has its only North American store outside Canada and USA in the Dominican Republic). Johnny, the English and French speaking Haitian-born manager, will make certain that your visit is pleasant and safe, including taking your orders for a full breakfast with plenty of robust, Dominican coffee, and not visibly carry any personal electronic device. He will double as taxi driver and wil gladly meet you at the airport or drive you to the bus terminal for your domestic bus trip.

It may not seem like much from outside, but once you pass the humble door, you discover a charming hotel, very clean, fresh (air con) and nicely decorated 1 minute walking distance from the central square of the Cuidad Colonial. The personel is extremely helpfull and speaks English. The rooms offer a very good standard and can accomodate up to 4 people in the best confort. The breafast may not be so continental but the freshness of the fruits and omelette served will certainly keep you going the distance when visiting the Cuidad.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs with a terrace, on the backside.
