No one spoke English, and I found myself playing charades in order to get them to understand me. It was a beautiful hotel, but I wouldn't stay again. For the amount of money I spent to stay there, I think someone should have been there who speaks and understands English.
And there were dead flies in the pool, so I couldn't get in. I tried to ask someone to clean it, but no one understood me.

The entire staff: reception, guards, house cleaners, are genuinely friendly. They are quick with a suggestion or to help. The hotel has an old world charm and is right by a gym, a grocery, and the conde. I will return.

Checking in was a breeze took all of 5 mins. The bell boy Daniel was great! The room was clean, spacious and had a fantastic view (paranomic ocean view.) floor to ceiling windows. If I had to change anything it would only be to have the hotel offer free parking but other than that it was perfect. Loved it wish I could have spent more than two nights there.
This hotel has a prime location near the business center of Santo Domingo.
Rooms are neat and have a desk/desk lamp. If you need a fridge, make sure to ask for one at check-in; they'll have one to your room at no extra cost in no time.
Pillows were comfy; mattress was a bit hard (great if you have a bad back... but I prefer super soft mattresses).
Breakfast was good with a lot of local options.
Located in the middle of the best part of the city this place is so interesting because it is so historical as well. Very classy spot to be and it is within 2 minute walk from any kind of food you could think of and all the main attractions like the alcanzar or the fort.
