For our annual trip to Providence we decided to find a different hotel rather than our usual (Hilton) in downtown area. The food at this restaurant is good especially for breakfast and we wanted a place with prime location, this has that. Besides the great location and discount (20%off at select restaurants) we were very disappointed with our stay. Entering... More

This is the first one star review I've ever written. I cannot fathom how this hotel manages to stay in business. General impression is of a dire Pension-style establishment in deepest southern Europe where €20 per night seems too much. Rooms are accessed by keypad locks. Our room was small and minimally furnished. One end of the room had the... More

Colorful hotel in historic DePasquale Square. Rooms are small but nice and clean. Bed was big and very comfortable. Air conditioning works great. Front desk staff friendly and very helpful. It was a very nice visit. I highly recommend it to anyone.

We booked at Hotel Dolce Villa because other hotels in the city we had contacted had two night minimums the weekend we stayed, which we did not need. We were also happy that they had space to accommodate 6 so my girlfriends and I could all stay in the same room together (two bedrooms and a pull out couch). It... More

We booked a suite for our anniversary, paid in advance...and were given a shoe box next to a fire escape. Room had hanging extension cords was barely enough room to walk around in literally. When we called to management to state there was a mistake they told us they don't honor third party reservations for suites, even though it clearly... More

I had booked a room at this hotel as a friend had recommended it to me as a "cute" boutique hotel right in Little Italy. I was very happy when they had room that could accommodate 3 girls for a girls weekend. I booked a room with two bedrooms and a sofa bed. The beds in the bedrooms were supper... More

Through Expedia, I made a reservation 4 days before traveling to Providence, and received a confirmation the next day. After driving 10 hours and arriving at the hotel, the lady at the front desk informed me that they cannot honor my reservation. The reservation was for $100 and she said that's not enough and that I either can pay $300... More

Let's get the positives out of the way first. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The overall location on Federal Hill was fun; lots of restaurants, bars, etc. The room was clean. Beyond that this place was like a bad Eurovision dream. The outside is cute, very European. Once inside the decor was stark white and pastels.... More

My friend and I were out in Providence, and had a few drinks We did not want to take a chance driving home-40 minute drive. She has an app-"Hotel Tonight" or something like that. This hotel came up with a rate of $69.00. Came on, you can't beat that. We were out pretty late, so all the loud music was... More

Unless you are a really sound sleeper and/or a night owl, stay elsewhere when visiting Providence! This hotel has virtually no soundproofing and the band playing next door until 2 AM might as well be under your bed! And then when the band finally stops playing you hear people in the street calling to each other, horns blowing, etc. It... More

We do apologize we did not meet your expectations, as you may know Hotel Dolce Villa is located in the center of the city with many bars, lounges and restaurants surrounding the area. We have no jurisdiction over these different establishments or the pedestrians walking/driving the streets. However, our guest is our number one priority. When you made the night... More
