We stayed at the Dolce Villa the weekend of May 3, 2014. We spent our honeymoon on a tour of Italy and Croatia, and this hotel in Rhode Island felt like it had been picked up from one of those countries and dropped into New England. The decor and construction are very Southern European, with tile everywhere and a very... More

Reading previous reviews of this hotel almost kept me away - I am glad I gave it a try. For under $90, a very comfortable bed, a very clean two-room suite and a location close to my dinner appointment on Federal Hill were too much to pass up. Staff was very friendly and responsive, also appreciated. Clearly from the multiple... More

Staying at Hotel Dolce Villa is a must! There is not any other hotel like it. Its location is exquisite, literally the heart of federal hill. My family and I enjoyed our stay so much, you walk out the front door and hear music, sit by the fountain and smell all the wonderful restaurants. I cant wait to come back... More

The suites are HUGE with a full kitchen full living room area, we even got a complimentary upgrade to one of the balcony suites, which was just amazing! You will never go hungry, every where you go you will find food and something to do! The staff is so... More

This is an overpriced piece. No elevators, so hope your on the first floor. It cost twenty dollars extra to park your vehicle, that you have to drive two blocks away. Do not waste your time or money...

I stayed here in mid-September, 2013. Room definitely needed an update, painting and all-around cleaning. Shower head was old, as was bathtub. Permanent blow dryer was from the 70s, and in desperate need of an upgrade. There was a funny smell, similar to overpowering air fresheners, throughout the hotel. While the location was ideal, I would not stay here again,... More

My husband and I have stayed here on two different occasions for a total of 5 nights. For the price we paid, it was a great location and great room quality. (I should note that we saw rooms there listed at higher prices than we paid, so it might be worth bargaining since the hotel web site encourages you to... More

Loved staying here and walking to all of the great bars and restaurants on Federal Hill. We barely used our car at all the entire 3 days and when we did the valet (who is also the front desk clerk) quickly retrieved our car. We reserved a 1 bedroom and were upgraded to a 2 bedroom with a fireplace, which... More

We stayed here for two nights earlier this week. We really enjoyed the location as there were restaurants every two steps in this Little Italy part of town (Federal Hill). People here seem pretty friendly. My favorite was the Constantino deli just a few doors over as they had ready-made food items that was delicious. Because it was already November,... More
