This is literally hidden gem. Its in Zona Colonial, in a hart of the city center, in perfect position for sightseeing. And when you open the entrance door, right from street verve you go straight into the calming facility, decorated in colonial style, with a lot of taste. You have a feeling that you entered into another world. Back yard... More

I can't say enough good things about the Hotel Villa Colonial: the building is beautiful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff were great, especially the manager Ramón. We arrived early on our check in day, frazzled from the trip. Ramón invited us to have breakfast and allowed us to check in early. Throughout our stay, he and the... More

Colonial building that has been renovated with great taste. The rooms are very comfortable and cozy with a sunny garden and pool. This oasis in the heart of the Colonial Zone is decorated with fine art works by local artist!

This review is long overdue and I am here now to correct my error. My first night there, I was a little confused about the high ratings given to the Villa Colonial. I quickly realized that it was because of the atmosphere and the personal attention given by the staff that was the reasons the praises. The sights, the sounds,... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the service is wonderful! I was a solo female traveler and felt totally safe in Santo Domingo and the hotel! The staff is fantastic and everyone is so nice. Ramon, the manager, is beyond lovely and recommended several cute little restaurants that I tried. Stay if you enjoy a boutique experience with lovely people!... More
