... Eduardo (uncle)!
I started in the hospital on Monday, and am shocked at how chaotic it is. Patients and family everywhere, and pieces of paper being handed over left right and centre. I still feel like a lemon when two Dominicans have a conversation, but can just about take a history. One old lady with only 2 or 3 teeth was a real challenge on the ears! Although everyone seems very nice, I won't fit in until my language skills ...

I got off and walked up a short way until the sun broke through the cave and exposed this lush green wall of vines with a lagoon in the middle. I think this is the lake that they are unable to find the bottom of, as it's name is "La Nivera". After taking the photos I wanted to take, I climbed back onto the boat and then headed to see Las Damas. This was the smallest of the three but ...

The 1st week of Nov was me sitting outside my house while people came to talk to me, mainly my brothers' friend (15-20 yr olds). The 2nd week was me walking around to hang out with those same people/kids as they introduced me to more people. I got to play more because a lot of the younger kids (under 15yrs old) new me. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Atarazana Santo Domingo
Piece of Heaven
My partner and I recently spent three nights at Hotel Atarazana and it was one of the best hotel experience we have ever had. Susana and Bernie were the most gracious hosts; they helped us get taxi's, and even rearrange some of our travel plans. The space is so beautiful and elegant and the location is close to eveything in the colonial zone. Every morning there is a beautiful buffet of eggs, fruit, meats and cheses, and great coffee. They really create an inviting and welcoming atmosphere. Do not stay anywhere else in Santo Domingo!
My partner and I traveled from an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana to Santo Domingo to taste a bit of the the culture in the Dominican Republic. Neither one of us spoke Spanish. After taking a long and expensive taxi ride (since it was election day and we didn't dare try the buses!) to arrive in Santo Domingo - arriving at the Hotel Atarazana was an incredible relief!
A ne manquer sous aucun pretexte !!!
Avec une décoration de goût, un patio ravissant, avec sa fontaine, ses plantes et fleurs, son bar, une terrasse sur le toit, des chambres et salles de bain impeccables, un accueil chaleureux, un excellent petit-déjeuner, et à quelques mètres du coeur de la ville, l'hotel Atarazana fait un sans faute. Si vous avez prévu de passer une ou plusieurs nuits à Saint Domingue, que ce soit pour affaire ou en séjour touristique, vous ne pouvez pas être déçu... et si vous n'avez pas prévu de vous arrêter à Saint Domingue, et bien, changez d'avis, car ce petit hotel vaut à lui seul le détour !!!
I only stayed 4 nights and it was definitely not enough. When I was there Susana (la directora) and Bernardo (the architect) were close to finishing the new roof garden, which they will now have finished. In addition to the beautiful patio downstairs one could imagine this being a marvellous place to look over Santo Domingo or simply to have a rest in one of the wooden deck chairs. The hotel is full of beautiful things made, designed or built by Bernardo himself, e.g. the beds, the lamps or my personal highlight: the stairway. This is a very special creation (amongst others) making the hotel quite unique. I would recommend this pretty hotel to anyone who likes a personal and quiet atmosphere, both for business trips as well as for holidays. Susana or Bernardo are always around if you need any information, a tip on where to go, a little time for conversation, or just a cup of coffee. - An oasis at the edge of the old city centre.
Hotel Atarazana was the perfect complement for beach-holiday in the Dominican Republic. After two weeks in Cabarete (surfer's paradise) we stayed a week in Santo Domingo in Hotel Atarazana. . The capital Santo Domingo has many interesting things to see and explore (culture like Spanish origins of the DR or relicts of the Truillo dictatorship, society from poverty to enormous wealth, etc.) and at Hotel Atarazana you are situated directly in the Centre of the City and can reach many things in a walking distance (anyway: a cheap but guarded parking lot is also just 50m from the hotel, so you can also come by car).
mitten in der altstadt von santo domingo in der zona colonial liegt das wunderschöne hotel atarazana. die besitzer sind zwei deutsche(susanne und bernd). mit ihrem herzblut haben sie das haus sehr schön und modern eingerichtet. die zimmer sind gross, haben bad und balkon, manche sogar einen fernseher. das frühstück wird im romantischen patio eingenommen und schmeckt köstlich. man fühlt sich nicht wie in einem hotel, sondern wie bei guten freunden.
Delightful Small Hotel!
I stayed one night at the Hotel Atarazana in November, while I was in Santo Domingo for a conference. I wish I had stayed there longer. The hotel is exquisitely decorated, with an attention to detail, and feels clean and comfortable. It's small, so Bernard and Susana, who run it, really went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I felt like a guest at someone's (lovely) house, rather than one more face at a huge tourist hotel.
The rooms are spacious and airy. When I was there, they did not have a/c, which might be a problem for some people, but the excellent ceiling fans kept things comfortable. The breakfast (included in the reasonable price) was delicious. I hope to be able to stay there again the next time I'm in Santo Domingo.
What a lovely stay !!
During our trip to Cabarete we stayed 5 nights in the Atarazana. It's a truly charming hotel right in the middle of the "Zona Colonial" of Santo Domingo. The owners, one of them an architect, who realised his own design plans in this historic building, will give you a very good time, starting with a delightful fresh and tasty breakfast, free internet access, books, a lovely courtyard with jaccusi and, if you like, some discussions while enjoying cuba libre at night. It's a perfect spot for exploring Santo Domingo or simply relax. Book ahead, they only have 5 rooms.
I stayed here on a recent business trip in the Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo.
