I like this place! Always get a good nights rest. I've stayed in what passes for more upscale hotels in Santiago, paid more money, and found far greater negatives than what I found at the Colonial. There are 3 buildings all in a row. The prices I've paid go from about 600 pesos to 1200 pesos RD per night, plus taxes. The rooms in the Colonial are clean, at least the ones I stayed in. The free wifi is fast but does not reach out to the individual rooms. It is necessary to go to the front desk area to surf the web. A huge plus for me is that the Colonial is located only a block from the bus stop, (gua guas, little buses). Transportation is cheap and readily available. I found the help to be both friendly and helpful. I would advise against staying in the rooms that have the electric heater attached to the shower head. Those things scare me. The is hot and cold running water in the far south unit. This is called the "Deluxe" building. Right next door is the Chino comedor. Their chicken is really good. They even have Bohemia beer! A side note: the Colonial is on the radar for a lot of youth groups. Teenagers from a lot of different countries stay here when they a preforming their projects in the country. Always an interesting and diverse group of people.
