Thank you for a wonderful stay. Each room is like a private art gallery. I felt safe at all hours in the neighborhood. The staff respected COVID protocols. My only comment is that the room service is a bit pricey.

Amazing time of our recent trip to Dominican Republic, in this occasion visiting Casas del XVI in Santo Domingo, hosting for Florina Toma and Adrian Baias. We enjoyed the stay, and we were fascinated with this Elegant Colonial CASAS, it was remarkably interesting to experience the excellent service and impeccable facilities of this prestigious and the only one of its kind in Santo Domingo, as well as for the superb hospitality received from Yoel Diaz, Luis and every staff member at Casa del Arbol. Our master suites - at Casa del Arbol and Casa del Disenador were incredible with gardening patio view and private pool, where we were delighted to experience beautiful vintage elements of these unique Casas. The restaurant offers a unique service a la carte of exquisite dishes of Caribbean fusion cuisine. The chef and the rest of the staff are incredible always ensuring we have an amazing experience. While staying at this Casa- we took a walk to experience top historic Unesco monuments and explored the cultural and picturesque streets within the Colonial City. We highly recommend this Hotel- Houses Concept to have a true retro and luxurious experience in the colonial zone of Santo Domingo! Looking forward to our next stay !!!!

Absolutely stunning! The location is perfect, right in the heart of the colonial zone and walking distance from many sights. The hotel was gorgeous, the room was perfectly decorated and all details were cared for. The service was beyond perfect. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone staying in Sanyo Domingo.

We stayed in a Luxury Double Room Something good: our room was beautiful as well as the bathroom - we loved the breakfast setting a big thank you for recommending Maraca restaurant - a few blocks away - highly recommended!! Something NOT so good: the house was not what we expected- the hotel consisted of 6 different houses - we booked a room with the thought that there is a spa and "big" pool but only got a "fish pond" that they use as a pool 👎 there is NO check in area!!! when you arrive you don't know where to go !!! no indications!! there is NOT a restaurant on site - after we asked many times when booking was made due to curfew hours!
