higher grade rooms good spanish hotel in city
dissapointing first impression booked superior room for short city break first two rooms in poor condition spent over two hours trying to get air conditioning fixed as leaking on floor and temerature constantly high. eventually reception staff recognised this as not acceptable and moved us to executive room for the inconvenience. executive room like a different hotel and would recommend . overal service in room excellent from bell boys and house keeping. pool area beautiful although didn't get use as buisness in city. breakfast not great choice or quality reception check in and check out poor customer service no please or thank you .spoke over you to other colleagues left waiting etc not good impression for this class of hotel. overall accommodation in executive rooms good but old hotel in need of modernisation and improved customer service from reception staff .hotel appears to be popular for business functions rather than international tourists. not a five star hotel from our experience.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Comfortable with beautiful grounds
I regularly travel to Santo Domingo and always stay at the Embajador. The staff is friendly and very efficient, the hotel well kept up and my room is always comfortable. The hotel grounds are also quite striking and well maintained. The hotel is some distance from the Colonial Zone and its tourist attractions, but they are easily accessible by taxi. It's a busy neighborhood with good nearby restaurants. As an older woman from the US it is an area where I have never had any problem walking around, day or night. Incidentally I always stay on the executive floor. It is a little more expensive but has good snacks several times a day and into the evening and there are Internet ready computers available in the common room. To visitors the Dominican Republic is best known for its beaches, but the country has a lot more. Beautiful landscapes, an interesting history and generally friendly and welcoming people. I come to see friends and always have a good time.

Old hotel but good location. Very noisy.
Television did not work. Had to change rooms because of the noise from the massive air conditioners right outside the window. Parrots starts screaming at 5:00 so be ready to get up. Air conditioner fan inside of the room did not work, so it was blowing full speed all night. Breakfast was included in the reservation but they said no. I had to get my laptop out, connect to the internet and show them a copy of the reservation that said free internet and breakfast. They still made a fuss before saying OK.

You won't go wrong here
A classic hotel that is dated in many respects, but still a grande dame of a hotel. Very quiet. Beuatiful park-like setting. Has been updated here and there and it was up to standards a business traveler expects. Didn't like it that the pool closed at 7pm each day. It's not like it gets cold! Breakfast very good but not in the great category. Most service people were extremely friendly and very helpful - except the clueless people at the front desk. I would stay here again.

My room smelled like mold and I had to change rooms during my stay. Friday night and Saurday night the hotel hosted the Claro business meeting outside on the grounds. The music blared, I mean blared, until 1 am each morning. Between the mold and the noise factor, I would not stay in this hotel again.
