Concierge.com's insider take:

You couldn't wish for a better Santo Domingo location. Sitting on a quiet street just off the Alcàzar de Colón, the architecture of this historic pink building blends into that of the surrounding Colonial Zone. And the pleasant rooftop terrace allows you to admire local landmarks like the Casa de Colón without leaving your lounger. The six rooms of this tiny boutique hotel are decorated sparingly, stylishly, and maybe just a little bit shabbily with simple platform beds, a tiny TV, and a serviceable closet. So don't be surprised if the bathroom fixtures or towel racks (or even the handrail on the staircase) are loose. But there are also nice touches: brightly colored bedspreads and curtains, sunny yellow bathrooms, and a computer in the common area ready for your Internet needs. The vibe could not be more easygoing. With discreet but friendly service by the European staff, you'll feel as if the house were yours and they were just around to smooth out the bumps. Improvements are on the way: the storefront space is being transformed into a café with art exhibitions, and plans are in the works to properly furnish the roof as a sun deck. If so, you won't ever have to leave, but with everything so close by, you'll want to anyway.
