“Great Stay”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Santo Domingo was one of our stop over cities during our tour of the Caribbean in three small aircraft.
Excellent Hotel located in the historic part of Santo Domingo, close to everything
Very friendly, helpful staff.
We stayed there on New Year's Eve, but did not stay in the hotel for the party because we were flying out early the next day.
The party noise was not an issue.

Me and my fiance stayed here for 3 days. Over all this is a nice hotel. Had problems with the reservations made through Expedia and would never book through them again. And a little noisy due to a wedding reception in the courtyard, which was right outside of our door. Other than that the location is great and the staff is wonderful. And one more thing. Breakfast is very expensive!

My friend and I arrived in Santo Domingo for a 2 night stay at Hostal Nicolas de Ovando after a disappointing stay in Punta Cana. What an incredible place! The hotel is a beautifully restored 16th century Spanish building that is a total retreat in the middle of the hectic city. The pool, pool bar, beautiful gardens and restaurant could not have been more beautiful. The staff was always there to help in the most unobtrusive and perfect way. Food and drinks were impressive. We spent a lot of time by the pool reading and relaxing with other hotel guests. Guests were mostly European, quiet, relaxed, such a respectful atmosphere. Our room was quiet, beautiful, and traditional with tons of old world charm. I will absolutely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Hostal Nicolas de Ovando is a complete and welcomed departure from the silly, expensive resorts that line the Punta Cana beaches. This was an authentic experience!!!

Hotel was very nice. From the outside it really didn't look like much but soon as I entered it was a whole new world. The staff was quickly attentive. Then when I walked into my room I quickly loved it. Room looks like something out of a castle. Excellent place. Definitely recommend.

The colonial style of this hotel is beautiful. The service is excellent -- very classy breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, lots of fresh fruit, big variety. Room was always cleaned perfectly. The location is good too, very short walk to several interesting sites to visit -- the museum Los Reales, the fort, the home of Diego Colon. Also, the Plaza where the home of Diego Colon is has some excellent restaurants. To see more of the DR, I recommend renting a car, but do so in advance, they get sold out in peak periods. Driving is crazy in the DR, but doable. This hotel is not really a kids place, but between the pool and the billiards table and the exercise room, our kids (9 and 11) really enjoyed it.

Pricey meals but worth it. Lots of activity in nearby streets "El Conde". Check out "El Conuco" restaurant. Walking distance from stores and restaurants. Tourist friendly lots of military men around. Kid friendly hotel.
