Portes 9 was the highlight of my experience in Santo Domingo. The location is perfect right off El Malecon that runs along the ocean. Some of the other reviewers said it better than I can, so I'll reiterate hondo8's observations of charm, personality, and the lovely Victorian styling with Caribbean flare. I was lucky and had the chance to peak into a few rooms before I chose
room #6 with ocean view. It was quite large with a very comfortable king size bed including a small sitting room with a couch. Very bright and airy with the ocean breeze flowing through. There was some noise from outside, but in Santo Domingo it's almost impossible to avoid it. That city is LOUD! Sven and Rosa are the live-in owners and have put together a great experience for travelers, along with their friendly, conscientious staff who keep the hotel sparkling clean and guard it's safety. The included breakfast is world class as far as I'm concerned and I want to thank the owners for their generosity on that regard. The only inconvenience was having to go down to the lobby to connect to wifi. I guess that's not true for all the rooms, and since the lobby has such a comfortable charming feel, it's one of those first world problems we tend to carry with us. Thank you Sven, Rosa, Victor, and Norca for making my stay so pleasant. I'm looking forward to seeing you again next time I'm in Santo Domingo.
