Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Mercure Comercial, ideally located in the colonial zone, seems to be an appropriate stopover for a sightseeing tour in the capital with your family, but it is much less suitable for a long stay. The reason: its lack of charm.

    Location 9.93 /10

    The Mercure Comercial is located at the corner of El Conde, the only pedestrian street in the old town, and the Hostos street, two steps from the historic monuments. All amenities (shops, bars, restaurants...) are within an arm's reach. The international airport of Las Americas is 19 miles away (a half an hour transfer).

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    There are two suites and 94 rooms. The rooms, of small size (195 to 240 ft²) are properly equipped: individual air conditioning, a safe, a mini bar, direct dial telephone for international calls, small satellite television (75 channels! including 15 Cuban ones). The design is quite functional, the furniture is made of dark wood, the bedcovers and the walls are sunny yellow. A small soap and a hair dryer are available in the shower room, but there are many towels provided. Children up to age 12 are accommodated for free in their parents' room. The view overlooks the Conde and Hostos streets or the neighbouring building.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The five-storey building with an orange coloured facade, built in the 1950s, has no great originality with its nondescript furniture. Soft music resonates on each level. All doors and locks, and the shower tubs in the rooms were replaced in 2005. For the rest, the common areas are clean, bright, the reception counter is wide and pleasant, welcoming clientele that is 50% or more French. In the neighbourhood, you will find bars and restaurants, as well as recently restored colonial houses.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The cuisine of the restaurant "El Colonial" is supervised by the chef of the hotel "Frances", one of the charming hotels in Santo Domingo. It offers good content, inspired by both Dominican and French cuisine (chicken, goat or lambi in Creole style, beef bourguignon or navarin of lamb). At lunchtime, passersby on the Conde street stop at the terrace of the restaurant that offers Dominican specialties as dishes of the day (pubs are a rarity there). You can have also sandwiches, burgers and omelets. An American style breakfast (croissants) is served buffet style. A large Lounge bar is located near the reception. The hotel's restaurant offers menus and seats for children.

    To know

    The guestbook is full of thanks sent in gratitude for the smiling staff, and expressed mainly in French and Spanish. The clientele is 60% French, Italian and American.

      • Value for money 6.97
      • Location 9.57

      The boutique El Palacio Hotel is nestled in a street of the Zona Colonial, the historic quarter of Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital. Set in the house of Buenaventura Báez, former Dominican president who served five terms during the 19th century, the hotel has plenty of period charm, the main draw of the establishment without 5-star hotel prices. The rooms are cosy and built on several levels, meaning guests have access to quaint leafy courtyards, adding to the pre-twentieth century ambience of the hotel.

      The Hodelpa Caribe Colonial is a nice small hotel in the centre of the old town whose modern, Art Deco style, contrasts with the historical monuments around it. The general architecture of the building, however, lacks style.

      • Location 9.45

      In the heart of the Zona Colonial, the old quarter or colonial quarter, of Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital, the Nicolas de Ovando Hotel is more than just a hotel, but having been built in 1502 as the residence of the eponymous first Governor of the Americas, it is a city landmark and a Unesco World Heritage Site. Managed by French hotel management group Accor, the hotel is set prime location, and its luxury surroundings offer comfort and high standards to an upmarket clientele. The 5-star M Gallery Nicolas de Ovando Hotel is located in one of the first formal official streets of the New World in the Americas, making the building and this area of town a very popular spot with visitors and locals alike.

      Located on the Malecon, on the seafront, approximately 15 minutes' walk away from Santo Domingo's colonial area, the Melia is one of the capital city's chic and business-oriented hotels, equipped with a gym, a spa and a beautiful pool on the panoramic terrace overlooking the sea. This 12-floor skyscraper lacks character but is nonetheless a very comfortable hotel: a perfect stopover to explore the first city of the New World.

      Doña Elvira is located in the heart of the Zona Colonial, or the colonial district of Dominican capital, Santo Domingo. A charming sixteenth-century boutique hotel that has seen better days and could do with a little bit of a revamp to bring it back to its former glory, but still provides a pleasant and quiet base to explore the surroundings from. A typical noble home with a central courtyard where you will find a pool, it stays relatively cool throughout the year.

      On the seafront in the capital, Santo Domingo, the Renaissance Jaragua is one of the biggest hotels in the city, so big in fact that you might almost think you're in a resort in Punta Cana, with its huge lagoon-like swimming pool in the middle of a vast tropical garden, its spa, its gym, its four tennis courts, and even a casino.

      It is hard to imagine there is a hotel behind the façade of this one-storey blue house located on the corner of the famous Calle de las Damas, the first street of the New World at the heart of Santo Domingo's preserved colonial zone. As its name suggests, the Coco is a boutique hotel and as such only offers five rooms that have been superbly decorated. The best part of it is the panoramic rooftop restaurant.

      A former private home from the 1860s, Atarazana is somewhat reminiscent of a Brasilian-style pousada, with its flower-filled patio sheltering a small basin and waterfall. This charming establishment only has six small rooms to offer. Guests are welcomed like members of the family by German owner Suzanne. Nestled at the heart of Santo Domingo's colonial zone, this small hotel is in an ideal location for discovering the riches of the first city to be discovered in the Americas. It is one of our favourites in the Dominican Republic.
