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. The hotel was built out of the remnants of a 500 year old building and exuded charm and tasteful decor throughout the hotel. The room was contained and had a circular...

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?). The building...

The Nicolas de Ovando is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. The 1502 building makes it one of the oldest historical buildings of Santo Domingo. Rooms and other common areas preserve the beauty of the location. Great service, wonderful breakfast, spacious rooms, magical atmosphere.

The hotel is situated on the first paved street in the new world; it is a short, one block from the main plaza, which is the place to go at night.

Great location in the colonial district. You can walk to museums and cafes easily. Room was well appointed and we had a view of the river.
