The city of Santo Domingo is growing a lot around this hotel
Hotel with style, charm, professionality and a lot of history. Comparable to the Hotel Nacional in La Habana. I thoroughly recommend the hotel Occidental El Embajador. Active Hotels has proven to be an excellent and informative on-line booking service.
convenience to business meetings
The service quality and the warmness of the people.
The tap water is not drinkable (I appreciate that they put a warning sign by the faucet), and the bottled watter is pretty expensive. Plain water should not be a luxury.
This hotel is great in terms of location and safety. It is one of the best residential areas in the city. The hotel is old but they are renovating. The breakfast is a plus. Beautiful garden.
The staff was very friendly and was available anytime you needed them to answer any question. It was 1:00am and I needed information on where to buy souvenirs in the morning as my flight was leaving very early and I hadn't bought anything yet. The attendant at the front desk gave me a few ideas and knew which stores opened early and which didn't.
