In the heart of the colonial quarter of Santo Domingo, set among remarkable buildings, stands the Hodelpa Nicolas de Ovando hotel, the former home of the Governor of the same name, a contemporary of Christopher Colombus. Built on the first paved street of the New World, where beautiful Spanish ladies strolled to display their rich costumes, the hotel's guests will enjoy an outstanding stay in a unique place where the stones, patios and fountains will take you back in time.

Serendipity indeed. Only stayed here when a four of us were unable to get rooms at another nearby Hodelpa and were essentially walked here instead. It is a really great property burnished by excellent service. Upon entering reception we were efficiently greeted by very friendly staff and offered a beverage of delightfully flavored, non alcoholic sparking juice. A lovely way to be checked in and we were speedily on our way to the rooms allocated to us. The hotel is a historic property once owned by its namesake and it is a delight to walk through the grounds to the rooms, which are set on two or three stories only. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and well furnished. Large, with comfortable beds and a well appointed bathroom with walk in shower. A very comfortable way to spend an evening/night. Plenty of places to charge one's electronics as well. I slept very well here and there was an excellent breakfast provided too with plenty of choice of hot and cold fare and a delightful courtyard area in which to consume it. Relatively expensive for Santo Domingo I suppose but very reasonable for what one gets and in comparison with what is on offer in the US. Well worth it I reckon and I will definitely stay here again. it is a great find. Also wonderfully located for the colonial center of SD.

What a spectacular hotel full of history and beauty, you’d feel like in the middle of a pirate adventure with all the caribbean colors and splendidness of the dominican people. The hotel is a fully comfortable antique structure with pool view to the sea port.

This hotel is beautiful, clean, large and amazing to explore. Everyone that works there is friendly, helpful, kind and always have a smile. Front desk made wonderful recommendations, while providing discretion and not pushy at all. Central location to walking places like restaurants, shops and cultural buildings.

Great experience. Nicest people. Claudio Ramirez was extrémenla attentive and treated us like family. He was concerned I didn’t like the eggs because I didn’t finish them….but it’s because the plate was huge and I was full! Breakfast was delicious…coffee was fantastic. Amazing breakfast spread.
