We have stayed at the Hodelpa twice, and each time the service we received has exceeded our expectations. On our second visit the facility itself also exceed our expectations. The recent renovation is beautiful. If you wish to visit the historical sites of the Colonial Zone, the central location of this hotel makes it a perfect place to base your... More

The hotel is right in the historic part of Santo Domingo so don't expect a grand hotel. It is limited by the regulations of the area in keeping the historicity of the area intact. However, the staff were excellent. My wife and I really felt pampered by the attention. A big shout out to Claribel Trejo Cruz, the manager of... More

My good friend Claribel, is the General Manager of Hodelpha Caribe Boutique Hotel Zona Colonial!! This hotel is an excellent place to stay while you experience an amazing historical city tour by: (Manny Tours)...ask hotel front desk for this tour guide by name. He is affordable, safe, knowledgeable of the city history, honest, patient and fun!

The staff was excellent. They were always going above and beyond. My only complaint are the thin walls. You can hear your neighbors pretty clear. If you go in the bathroom, you get a full audio of your neighbors bathroom habits. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.

Hotel in renovation, clean room but weathered bathroom(I got one of the old ones), great free breakfast and free internet. Front desk could be more pleasing. Good flat tv. Room does not look as in pictures it's very small. My view was of construction :-)

Stayed here two nights at the beginning of a 16 day trip. This location is perfect to see all the historical sites and is just one block from the main walking street (El Conde). Some chaos due to construction so the check-in desk was in the bar. Also it has the smallest elevator of any hotel I've stayed in. The... More

Before I booked Hodelpa I noticed the low star rating and knew exactly where the disconnect is. There are different Hotels for different purposes and before leaving negative comments people should know what they want out of their travels.
