Hotel Gem in DR Mar 20, 2010
I stayed at the Hotel Palacio after leaving Haiti and the amenities probably seemed a lot better than usual considering I just spent 10 days in the aftermath of Port-au-Prince’s earthquake. I regret that I didn’t have a few more days at this hotel because it is within walking distance of many historical and cultural attractions. The Palacio is actually an attraction, in itself. Owned by a former president of DR in the 1800’s, the hotel was once a mansion and you can still tour parts of it that still remain as the original house. There are several paintings hanging throughout the hotel and most of them depict in some fashion the discovery of America by Columbus.

As I only spent one night here, I didn’t get to take advantage of everything they have to offer, but I did get my laundry cleaned there. I also used the free wireless internet in the room and had two delicious meals in their restaurant, the Cafeteria Colonia. Except for the front desk, the staff didn’t speak a lot of English and I didn’t speak a lot of Spanish. But that didn’t create too much of a problem. They were all very nice and patient in trying to understand my English.

They have an exercise-equipment room, a sauna, and a pool on the roof. The pool isn’t very big, but it’s usually not too crowded here because they only have around 35 rooms. Rooms are varied from standard to suites. The rooms are air-conditioned, well kept, clean, classy and comfortable. I was very impressed with them. I had a suite with a living room and bedroom. The shower was hot and the bed felt wonderful, but then again, I’d been sleeping on a cot for several days. The only small protest I would make is that they didn’t have a coffee maker in the room. But there was free coffee in the lobby, and the rooms do have minibars.

Overall, this is a great little hotel. The prices for a standard room are in the 60USD range, while the suites are around 100USD per night. And you also get a free buffet breakfast with the suite package. If you are visiting Santo Domingo, I would give this a high recommendation.
