Pay attention to the dates in
Hotel Reservations

Please, don't improvise!! instead of reserving a random hotel or agonizing with the room sharing, ask the advice of DR11 organizer vp !!! Make sure you'll do the flight and room reservations to the correct dates. You should arrive 1 day earlier and fly back next day. E.g. fly and accommodate Dec 11-20 to participate the whole 8 days (Dec 12-19). You can also fly back to home on Tuesday Dec 19 after 5PM.

Hotel Choices for Santo Domingo

DR11 recommends luxurious Hotel Palacio or convenient Antiguo Hotel Europa. They have served us flawlessly for a decade. They are enough close to the workshop place Trovas Tapas Bar, 2nd floor, Calle Isabel la Catolica #210, look at the map. As we won't have any festival activities in the hotels, you can as well choose Hotel Saint Nicolas, Hotel Mercure, Hodelpa Caribe, Aparta Hotel Roma or Casa Conde Hotel Beautique. I have personally been in most of these hotels. Look at the map of their location.


Hotel Palacio is extremely beautiful with a pool and minibar in the room. The hotel building was the Palace of the Dominican Republic ex-president Buenaventura Baez. Reserve the room directly from the Hotel Palacio pages. You don't need a discount code. Book directly from the Hotel Palacio pages to get the lowest price and to help the local economy. Palacio has really many room types. Please check the prices directly from the hotel room reservation page.

Antiguo Hotel Europa is economically priced, excellent location close to Ruins and Plaza España, beautiful lobby and useful roof Terraze, but no pool and no minibar in room. Send email to me v to pass your reservation to Antiguo Hotel Europa. It's the only way to get the discounted price.

Hotel Europa

Ruta Bachatera Hotels

DR11 will take care of the Ruta Bachatera hotels Dec 16-19 (3 nights). The DR11 ticket price includes the Ruta accommodation in a shared double. Single participants should contact DR11 organizer to optimize with whom to share the room or whether to pay extra for the single room.
