This is a very cozy hotel with a real colonial style.
When I was researching hotels to stay in Santo Domingo my doubt was between Villa Colonial and another Boutique hotel located on the same street.
Looking at the photos I realized that Villa Colonial was a much better choice as it’s not that kind of hotel with white walls, and an extremely clean look with a lac of personality.
Located on the Colonial district, I felt it was just on the right spot!
Not so close to all the fuzz and noisy streets (3 blocks away) and still on a comfortable walking distance to literally everything.
From the street, you look at Villa Colonial’s facade and can’t really imagine what’s inside!
It’s well decorated and charming with nice wooden furniture, paintings and a beautiful flooring. I’m quite sure the house is from the late 1500’s.
Considering the month I was there, with very high temperatures it was fresh inside.
The indoor garden gives a comfortable Caribbean feeling with plants, flowers and birds.
Next to the garden there’s a swimming pool that has just the right size. Not so big and not so small so you can refresh yourself and chill out on the chairs.
The rooms are good, lots of space, clean, there is a safe, shower is very good with hot water and pressure. Aircon works fine, TV with local and US channels and wifi is also good all over the hotel.
Breakfast is near the pool and you can have coffee, tea, eggs, toast, cheese and a good variety of fruits.
The staff is extremely polite and Ramon is a very good manager, always there if you need something. If you need they can provide transportation to the airport and I paid 1.300Dop.
For sure I will go back next time!!!
