Prime location in Santo Domingo's historic Zona Colonial
Limited breakfast options
Those looking to embrace Santo Domingo's historical charm should consider bedding down at the Billini Hotel. This boutique property (which sits within the city's UNESCO World Heritage-listed Zona Colonial) showcases elements of the region's past, such as brick archways and old exposed walls in some of the guest rooms. But don't let its old-world setting fool you. The Billini Hotel has plenty of modern amenities, too. To start, all 24 suites include perks like flat-screen smart TVs, coffee makers and complimentary wireless internet access. Recent travelers especially appreciated the hotel's old-meets-new vibe and its attentive staff, though some felt the complimentary daily breakfast lacked options. Outside of your cozy digs, you'll find features like a spa, three restaurants, a cafe, a wine cellar, a business center and an outdoor pool. Past guests raved about the rooftop pool's vistas, which include a superb view of La Regina Angelorum, one of the first churches established in the New World.
