Hotel Discovery
Ranked #65 of 80 Hotels in Santo Domingo
Reviewed 12 July 2017

We ended up at Hotel Discovery as the other hotel we had booked and had an on-line confirmation for was actually closed for renovation and this hotel was close by. After getting past the unsmiling reception man at midnight, the room was quite OK with two beds and a clean bathroom. There was a safe, a broken TV and free drinking water is provided. The hotel is in a great location next to Parque Indepencia. We could have moved on from here but decided to spend our second night and not surprisingly when the unsmiling reception man was not at reception it was USD10 cheaper than we paid for the first night. This is a cheaper hotel but our experience was quite OK just chek how much you should really pay..

Stayed here for 5 nights, for a great price it had included free Wifi, free parking and was in the colonial zone, wifi didn't work so well most of the time it wasn't available and they close the parking after 12:00am so you have to leave your car outside the hotel if you get back to late. Rooms are small, tv was terrible, the swimming pool is small, air conditioner won't freeze you but it was ok, nothing fancy about the beds but I could sleep well, and they always had hot water. Like most hotels in the area there was always taxi available at front of the hotel.
If you are looking to save some money in a hotel and only need some place to sleep and have a bath and not looking for something fancy and lot of extras this place is a good option for you.

If you want to go to Santo Domingo and explore the Colonial Zone I must say this hotel is great for your stay.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of the Colonial Zone. Most of the attractions are on the far side from the hotel but the hotel is in fact, located in a decent area because there is a bank on the left side, right after exiting the hotel so, you can get your hands on pesos. It is also right across the street from the Independance Park. There is a street across from the park named "El Conde" which is great for roaming the Colonial Zone. Various restaurants and gift shops are on that street and there is also a supermarket. Grand's restaurant, which is the first restaurant on that street has my best interest because of their great service and fresh magnificent orange juice.
More about there is another review.
After reaching the end of "El Conde" you will find yourself in another area of the Colonial Zone with more attractions and from there on you can explore the rest of the zone and their various attractions. There are a number of tour guides at the beginning and at the end of "El Conde" so if you are interested you can always find them.
The hotel service is great. There is a watercooler so you don't always need to buy bottled water. There is a small pool on the roof, the hotel has an elevator and also WIFI, which performs on a scale of 3/5. The receptionist does not speak fluent English but communication goes well because they understand clearly. The hotel does not have a restaurant nor a nearby swimable beach. If you are looking for a restaurant you'll need to go to "El Conde" the street across the road or on the left after exiting the hotel, there you can find a fast food restaurant. There are a number of taxis outside the hotel so you'll be alright.
All in all this hotel is great if you want to explore the Colonial Zone because it is accessible to many attractions and restaurants, it is also tourist friendly and cozy.
