Good place to stay but...

Pros: The staff is nice, and remembered me from an earlier stay.
Cons: Print the bill in English, and show the charges in dollars instead of pesos, at least for the non Spanish customers. The rooms need soundproofing.
Location: The location is more urban than I would like, but the work done on the street has finally been done.
I think there was at least one mistake on my bill at checkout. I was charged for more room service than I ordered. The mini bar food and drinks seemed too expensive. I let it go due to the language difference and because I was leaving for the airport soon and didn't have time. The taxes seem ridiculously high, or is it just me who thinks that?

They fixed my mistakes!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, location!
I have read many reviews that told of problems that people had with Internet reservations. Mine is different. I showed up at Hodelpa for my room, and they were slow in checking me in. It turns out that I had made a reservation (the night before) for the night before! They saw the date and the time (10:53 pm.) that I had made the reservation, understood my error, and welcomed me. My Spanish is imperfect, but their hospitality was exceptional. Santo Domingo and its people are welcoming and friendly. Its historical preservation is incredible. Please visit the Zona Colonial. You will not regret it. If street vendors bother you, simply smile and say, "Gracias, " with a shake of your head, they will smile back. But your courtesy is important. They are trying to live. They can be very helpful if you need assistance. Do not scorn them. They are very human and have feelings similar to yours.

Colonial Old City

The hotel certainly deserves its promotion as a botique hotel. A charming small hotel, located 1 block from Colombo Plaza an the El Conde pedestrian market area. There was some exuberant celebration in the later evening. This hotel would be my first choice in the Colonial District on a return visit. The staff was most accommodating, friendly and helpful. A very nice value. I recommend it.

Great Hotel in Colonial District

From the time that my friends and I entered the hotel, the entire staff was very friendly and professional. The location of the hotel was great. Dinner and drinks in the bar were excellent! We will definitely stay here again on visits to Santo Domingo.

Cordiality at Hodelpa

The staff is most personal even with a welcoming letter in the room with your name on it. An excellent breakfast, included, helped an early morning meeting .
