The place is very charming. I personally liked.

This establishment is located in an ideal area. Great for site seeing because it is at the center of many interesting sites. Our room was clean with fresh linens and all bathroom amenities. The only downside to our room was that there is no room refrigerator. If you find an employee they would gladly provide you ice if needed. My dissatisfaction were few but the reason why I did not give the place a perfect rating. When we arrived after ringing the bell a number of times a young lady appeared. I am unsure if she spoke Spanish or English for that matter because we exchanged little to no words. She took my ID and disappeared, eventually returned with my ID and walked us to our room. She disappeared before I could get a word in. We did not see her again until we returned from outside but she would open the door and disappear again. Our room TV was not working and we could not report it because we didn't know where the staff disappeared to. The hotel lost electricity twice during our stay. Not for long but again we felt like we were deserted in this large hotel without staff in sight. The second night without electricity we met Rosemary, I think that was her name. She was much more comforting and took her time to apologize and explain to us the situation. We found out that there was a problem with the cable company in the area besides the issue they were having with the generator. The morning Breakfast staff was lovely. Very timely, friendly and attentive. Kudos to them!

They were having power issues while we were there.

Provides a unique experience - old monastery well maintained. Good location, good service and lots of charm.

Friendly staff,peacefully quite and perfect ambience

The property is basically a cross between a hotel and a museum. It is located right in the middle of La Zona Colonial, two blocks down from la Calle Conde, steps away from all the major attractions and the grocery store Nacional.

Greatly enjoyed our visit, the room was in the colonial style and very comfortable. The courtyard and roof deck were stunningly beautiful. Breakfast was a proper full breakfast with good variety. If you're a very light sleeper, beware that the walls are thin (it's an old building, nicely restored). It was not a problem for us at all, even with someone in the rooms on either side of us. Great location, check out Mercado Colon for dinner just around the corner! I would absolutely stay here again.

The hotel is like a museum and beautifully decorated. The room is not big but adequate. Enjoyed lighting up all the candles in the room after dark. Excellent free breakfast with made to order eggs and fresh fruits. The hotel kitchen is open all day providing free hot and cold water, and utensils.

A lovely experience! So far, the best stay in Santo Domingo, thanks to El Beaterio. The staff was very helpful and professional. This place is enchanting and beautifully preserved. Breakfast was great! I can't wait to go back ♡
