Hotel Portes 9
Ranked #26 of 80 Hotels in Santo Domingo
Reviewed 3 June 2017

We came in on the early flight to Santo Domingo. The hotel staff was great. They allowed us to store our bags while our rooms were being prepared, so we were able to get out into the old town and see the sights. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the plaza and the fort. Very cool place. The rooms were clean and nice with all of the essentials at a bargain price. Very comfortable. Good beds. I would definitely stay here again.

We only spent one night, but it was a good experience. This is a quaint hotel in the Zona Colonial. Easy walking to all of the attractions and restaurants. The breakfast is delightful with pastries, fruits and cooked to order eggs. The staff is friendly and helpful and can point out good places to eat and explore. The rooms are basic but decent. Just don't expect it to be like the better chain hotels. This one still has its quaint charm and is actually a converted private home. I would like to spend more time exploring the area and will definitely stay here when I do.

We stayed here two times, one day at a time! The first room we got on the third floor was great! It was beautiful and didn't smell like mold compared to the room we got on the first floor. The room on the 1 st floor was dark and smelly. When we closed the door we felt like we were suffocating...

Ask for a room on a higher floor and you'll be Allright!

The breakfast was delicious

This hotel has good air conditioning in the room and the bed is comfortable and clean. It is in a very quiet street and very centralized location by Zona Colonial. It's a 6 mins. walk to a great restaurant Pata e Palo on Plaza de Espana.

The nightly price was good considering this hotel is located in the colonial zone. Restaurants, art galleries, souvenir shops and the Zona are an easy walk from this hotel. We had to ask for an adequate amount of towels every night. On our third night, the desk clerk actually checked our room while we were at dinner and decided that a towel and a bathmat were sufficient for two people. I practically had to beg to get three hand towels. I don't think they had any facecloths. The door strip leading into the bathroom fell off the first night. The curtains and rods fell down when I tried to open the curtains the second morning. I would not recommend this property for families with children younger than 12. The rooms are adequate. The terrace is a quiet and beautiful oasis. The included breakfast includes cooked to order eggs, fresh fruit, cold cereal and muffins or sweet bread. The ladies who prepare breakfast are kind and efficient.
