Hotel Description

This very modern hotel occupies a compound of buildings that includes the former home of Nicolas de Ovando, which dates back an impressive 500 years — obviously, this is one of the oldest Spanish buildings in the New World. This sense of history is what makes Santo Domingo unique, setting it apart from the Caribbean's many identical sun & sand resorts. The hotel's modern construction blends well with the weathered stone of the original sixteenth-century building, and the interiors are contemporary with tasteful retro flourishes.

Though small, only 104 rooms, it is a full-service hotel, with two restaurants, two bars, a swimming pool, and twenty-four hour room service. There are meeting facilities and a fully equipped business center, and though there is no beach handy, the downtown district's nightlife and entertainment are close by. Americans and other baseball fans take note: this is the place to see the sport at its most pure. Watch children play an impromptu game in the streets, or check out the Tigers or the Lions at Quisqueya Stadium. Come in January and you can see the stars of the American game in their home country, playing for the love of the game.

How to get there:

Hostal Nicolas de Ovando is located 30km (25 min) from the Santo Domingo Airport. Transfers can be arranged for US$40 each way. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
