We visit our daughter in the Dominican Republic every six months during her stint in the Peace Corps. While we always spend a day or two in the Colonial Zone, this was our first stay in this hotel. It offered a perfect location, wonderful amenities, a nice room with AC, and a quaint bar. We never had a meal here... More

This hotel is in the middle of the Colonial Zone - a walking distance to everything in the Colonial Zone. Great value for what you get. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous - great colors, beautiful decorations, history preserved. The pool is very relaxing and tranquil. The restaurant is also very welcoming and beautifully decorated. Food is outstanding. The rooms are... More

This was my first stay at this hotel. The hotel itself is very beautiful. Looks like a converted castle with a lot of character, color and details throughout. Security is very tight. We wanted friends to meet us and they were only allowed in the door with an id and were not allowed to use the pool and amenities with... More

Hostal Nicolas de Ovando is a beautiful hotel in an usually beautiful area - there were construction all around Zona Colonial during our visit, which is not the hotel's fault. Overall the service and cleaningness was satisfactory, not outstanding. We stayed at Hostal twice during our visit to DR, first stayed in room 4040 and then in 4010, both rooms... More

We were staying in this beautiful hotel with two families with one 2-year old each. The rooms and the hotel are beautiful, the breakfast was delicious and the staff very helpful, even with special orders for the kids! It is centrally located for visiting Santo Domingo! I would go back there tomorrow if I could - highly recommendable!

Based around a former mansion on the river in the Colonial Zone (old town) of S.D., this hotel uses its courtyard layout to create a barrier between its guests and frantic world outside. Public areas are spacious and relaxing. Rooms are simple, but modern...very low key. Staff is excellent and responsive.

Fantastic quality hotel, everything excellent in terms of facility, location, rooms, staff, etc. Located in a gorgeous building with attractive courtyards and pretty luxurious rooms. Convenient parking nearby (zero cost), which is also very nice. Right next to the Plaza Espana, which has plenty of good dining/drinks options. It's expensive, but definitely worth it if you want a luxury-type place... More

I've stayed a couple of times in this hotel on work trips. The Colonial essence is lovely and some of the hip details integrated into this structure are enough to maintain it cool but classy. The staff is super friendly and they make you feel welcome from the get go. Rooms are super clean and neat (please don't expect huge... More

First stay at the Nicolas De Ovando for business in Santo Domingo and a change from the modern hotels of the business district where I have stayed on previous visits. This hotel is in the Colonial City area along Calle Las Damas and adjacent to a host of historical buildings and overlooking the passenger cruise terminal on the river mouth.... More
