Old Reviews – Colonial

We stayed at the Hotel Colonial in Santiago as a stopover since whereas our destination was Punta Cana by rental car, our JetBlue flight arrived a bit past midnight, when all of the rental car agencies were closed and we needed to wait until 7 the next morning.

We booked the hotel by phone one week prior. The staff was very accommodating to our late arrival, having two staff members wait up for us at night. We arrived at the hotel by taxi (US$15 from the airport at late night; RD$350 back to the airport during the day). The three of us stayed in 2 rooms, each with a double bed. The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean, equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fan, cable TV, and a full bathroom. The room is small (10′ x 10′) but served its purpose very well. Hot water was available in the bathrooms. The total cost for the two rooms was RD$1014 for that one night. This was in the "new" portion of the building. It is not a luxury apartment, but for the cost, it does quite well.

There is a restaurant attached. The hotel lobby changes money as well, offering a better rate at the time than did the banks or ATMs. Parking was on the street but readily available. The staff was very helpful in giving directions and making our stay comfortable. We would all definitely return to the hotel in the future.
