Hotel Portes 9 is a delightful boutique hotel. The evening desk clerk, Marvin, connected us with a tour guide, enabling us to have a delightful, informative tour of Santo Domingo. Walking the entire colonial zone from Portes 9 is easy. Its a safe neighborhood and Portes 9 is located on a beautiful, small plaza. The room was spacious. Breakfast was amazing consisting of eggs cooked to order (omelet or fried) with fresh fruit. Immerse yourself in the Santo Domingo culture and stay at Hotel Portes 9.
