“Below Expectations”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

Nice staff and great price. Those are the highlights. There is tile everywhere, which makes for an impersonal/institutional feel. Bed and pillows were foam/terrible. Clean enough. No elevator. View of the A/C condensor. They'd be better off getting rid of the kitchenettes and making the one room bigger. I think they're going for a cramped, European look, but that only works if you're actually in Europe.

Also, Federal Hill is party central and like a Jersey Shore theme park. My Sicilian wife and I were appalled. Boston's North End, it is not! Next time we'll stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, ask for a quiet room. 2E wasn't bad.

The worst hotel ever
I stayed here with my 2 kids and when i got there i told them that the room smell like smoke and they told me that the was no smoking on the room. 2 days later i got charge 150 dollars for smoking in the room but the best part is that i dont smoke. So if you want to stay here make sure you get that clear before they charge your credit card for 150 dollars. I called to get a refund on my card and the guy at the service desk was really rude no help. Plus if you like sleeping with loud music until 200 in the morning you can stay here aweful experience never again.

Only 1 air conditioner worked. The rooms down stairs have a view of a back alley with dumpster and you can smell the dumpster in the room. The bed sheets were not clean and the owner was present and was extremely rude. Terrible customer service.

The location is great if you're partying it up all night long and can sleep through lots of noise. First of all, everything I went to bed at around 2am with dance music blasting in the background. I wish I was having a good time at the club too, but instead I was trying to sleep...

Second, there was a dumpster outside the window and one morning somebody started moving it with a big vehicle AT 7 IN THE MORNING. 15 minutes into the procedure, the hotel manager had the people stop and I overheard him saying that they can't be loud until 9am. But being awoken at 7:00am to loud sounds outside the window was just terrible.

Hotel Dolce Villa is in a great location, but not your average hotel. Rooms had no view, only two bedroom ones had a balcony. Our room over looked the dumpster. Very cold feeling rooms but very clean(almost too clean) Thought the mattress was going to be a Tempure Pedic, but wasn't. Air conditioner was noisy, on and off all night. People were very nice and helpful. No parking for this hotel. They had to take our car keys and find a place to park it. We were told that we could not get our car till morning. Great location though!

After a weekend stay I just wanted to take time to write a glowing review of Hotel Dolce Villa.
While the hotel does lack a pool or fitness room it makes up for it with fabulous customer service and a charm that is missing at many larger hotels.
The room was very clean and the hotel restaurant had so many tempting options! Must try the sangria! The front desk also gave me many options for day and night activities and many where just steps away from the property.
cant wait to make it back to providence, ri!

I went to this hotel for the first time and I fell in love, Honestly I felt as if I was home away from home.It was super clean and everything that you need was there.The suite is where I stayed in room 3C was clean and awesome.I would recommend this hotel to everyone and the staff was warm and friendly,I felt like the staff was family and I visiting and they had pride in showing off their city and hotel. As you know I"ve stayed another hotel twice in that area but this one tops it and you get what your money is paying for.I will return.The room had bedroom with Queen bed and a kitchen if you need to cook.also a let out bed from the couch and 2 televisons in each area. Amazing restaurants that they give you 20% off.
