My friend and I stayed at this hotel for one night. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and gave us some good tips about where to get good iced coffee and where the Walgreens was located. She mentioned there would be live music just outside the hotel playing from 8-10 or 11 pm. The music was great... More

Hotel Dolce Villa is crammed into a tight but vibrant section of Depasquale Square which is lined with restaurants, shops, outside cafes and eateries having the ambiance of a little Italian getaway. The narrowness of this section of Federal Hill with all its amenities and proximity to downtown adds to its charm. The constricted Hotel Dolce Villa lobby reception area... More

Hotel Dolce VIlla participated in this year's 17th Annual Federal Hill Stroll (for some reason?)... We were extremely disappointed to watch a member of their staff berate an older woman who had PAID TO BE ON THE STROLL, for taking their "complimentary limoncello" but not having gone on their mandatory tour of the premises. Those on the stroll had paid... More

The outside of the hotel is in bring crayon colors of lemon yellow, lime green and royal blue.The hotel room was clean and smelled of disinfectant and was spartan save for large Andy Warhol type mural images of Sophia Lauren everywhere. White walls, white bed, shower not a tub. Walls are not soundproof so you hear other people showering. It... More

Small sterile room, no elevator. When arriving, sheets had hair and stains on them. The girl working came up with new ones for self change. Wi-fi wasn't working, and when telling the staff they just said that it sometimes don't ( the staff working the next day was much more helpful and did restart the router and it started working)....

Stayed here for one night. Enjoyed our stay. Totally renovated and very clean. This is a small boutique hotel. They have tempurpedic beds and free wifi. The location is the best for the area, however take note the hotel front faces the patio which is nice but not exactly easy to locate. You street park and they will move your... More

Dolce Villa is an unconventional hotel on Federal Hill that is perfect for those wanting to explore Federal Hill. There's plenty of great restaurants in walking distance. Even a strip joint. The room was comfortable. No parking on site, but there is a lot nearby, or Dolce Villa will park it for $20. If you need the real hotel-motel experience,... More

We were spending a night in Providence, and found this hotel. For the price we paid (55 bucks), a decent deal. The whole hotel is basically a tribute to Fellini's La Dolce Vita, with portraits everywhere. Rooms are a bit cramped, and the hotel, while funkily decorated, isn't as "luxurious" as you'd hope. But it is clean. And it is... More

Parking and getting to Hotel a little difficult. Park in back street but no instructions ahead of time what to do. Call first might be good idea. BUT rooms are clean and comfortable. Better stay off first floor as alley has garbage pickup some days outside woindows :-)

In reading other negative reviews, we did not encounter the outside noise many spoke of. Our room was on the top floor (3A) and over our room there was an incessant tapping and knocking sound throughout the whole night. I don't know if it was related to the plumbing or ventilation systems, but we got no sleep. The front desk... More
