Nice hotel, but full of mosquitoes
The hotel is really nice and clean, we even had a free upgrade to the Suite Isabela Catolica. Service was ok. Breakfast was fruits, eggs, toast, cereals - all in all a lot, but you just get what they think you want. We have not been asked what we want except of how we want the eggs. The location is great, only two blocks from Calle el conde. It was no problem to find parking space in the same road (however, you should only drive a car in Santo Domingo if you are used to Dominican traffic). The biggest disadvantage were the mosquitoes in our room and the bathroom. During the first night I killed about 20 of them, but only because I brought an electric mosquito zapper. At 3 AM I was close to leave the hotel ahead of time. The hotel should really do something to fight these animals and think about providing mosquito nets. The rooms on the upper floor obviously were not affected as much as on the lower floor around the pool. Only because of this problem I think I won't stay there again.

This hotel offers a great location, the breakfast was superb and plentiful, the service was great and prompt the only downside are the rooms. The smell was not pleasant and although the rooms had a colonial feel the installations were old and Outdated , the hot water was minimal and the water pressure was dismal. The bed was comfortable. The jacuzzi was out of service. If you are looking for a place to rest while exploring the city this hotel is good. But I f your priorities are the accomodations and are looking to spend time in the hotel I recommend booking another hotel.

Amazing hotel in old town Santo Domingo!
Hotel Dona Elvira is an amazing and unique place for a couple days in Santo Domingo. It is in the old part of town that dates back to the 1500s and the hotel is carved out of one of these old building very near incredible plazas, cathedrals, churches, museums, statues and such. The rooms are unique in how they incorporate the history of the building with modern comforts with nice design features. They missed cleaning the room one day, but maybe we slept in too late; no big deal.

Cozy, good location
Very charming and nice little hotel in a quiet area of the Colonial Zone near some interesting restaurants/bars/museums. There are a lot of cute spaces to lounge around on the property. The breakfast isn't anything special, but the service is good.
