Having been born in Santo Domingo, I was so excited to return with my husband. The location couldn't be better. Easy walk to all the important historical sites. We stayed there 2 nights, toured other areas, and returned for 3 additional nights. The first room was lovely -- old architecture, view of the pool and river and quiet. The second...

I would stay here again. A beautiful hotel in a 500 year old palace. Incredible restoration, River views. On arrival you are greeted with a refreshing towel and a cold sparkling drink. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Hotel is situated right in the historic district close to museums, restaurants and good walking. Free wifi.

Almost everything about this hotel is on the mark. The service is excellent and warm. The architecture of both the rooms and common grounds is stunning. The breakfast buffet is (with eggs, fresh fruit and various meats) sufficient to tide one over through the entire day. The only small issue is that the rooms are not 100% soundproof and it...

Beautiful property ideally located for touring and walking around the historic district. Rooms are incredibly comfortable and of high standards. The architecture nicely combines the old-world feel with modern conveniences. We walked around the historic district and saw other hotels, and were very happy with our decision to stay at this property.

Had a wonderful one night stay at Hodelpa Nicolas de Ovando as we parted from our resort on Bavaro Beach for a 2 day exploration of the old city.

I previously visited Santo Domingo, but stayed at a different major hotel. This hotel is easily leaps and bounds above where I have stayed before All of the staff was professional, pleasant, and very accommodating (except one tall guy, dressed in very nice suits daily, who seemed to have an attitude-- there is always one in the bunch...right?).
