Billini Hotel in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
In the center of Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial, history, modernity and luxury come together as one at Billini Hotel. The building was once a guesthouse for members of the Dominican monastery and Sisters of Mercy convent during the 16th century. Today it stands as a beautifully restored architectural gem bridging the city’s Spanish Colonial past and cosmopolitan present, transformed into a boutique hotel with state-of-the-art comfort, just steps from vibrant shops, restaurants, clubs and Playa Montesinos.
For a perfect day in Santo Domingo, wake up to a luscious buffet breakfast, relax near the fountain with a good book or sunbathe in the rooftop pool overlooking one of the oldest church of the Colonial City. For an extra treat, disconnect with a great massage in the spa and finally finish off the day with a cocktail in the rooftop restaurant.

Reviews for Billini Hotel
We loved our time and only wish we weren't so rushed. Staff was accommodating and bed was beyond comfy. It is extremely well-located and central in the historic district. We found it quite charming and more lux-feeling than other spots we've stayed nearby.
I made a reservation through getaroom at Hotel Billini, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and was charged on my credit card for the reservation and got an email stating my reservation was CONFIRMED and paid in full. When I got to the hotel and showed the confirmation email, the clerks immediately were kind of nervous and said there was a problem with my reservation. They made me wait 45 minutes in the lobby with luggage and wasting my time in such an important date (December 31st), just to tell me that my reservation was not valid even though my credit card had been charged. I told them that if there was an error it was not my problem, they have a contract with the website in which I made my reservation and I had got my confirmation email, and asked them for the room I had paid for. The person told me that there was no way I would get my room with the reservation I had made and that if I wanted a room I had to pay US$190.00 in addition to what I was charged on my credit card. Hotel Billini staff made me go through such an unpleasant and uncomfortable situation, making me waste my time on new years eve and making me look like a fool in front of other guests. I had to leave the hotel even though I had paid for my room and go to another hotel, spending additional money.
Quirico at the front desk was especially kind and helpful but the whole hotel was excellent. Amazing roof top pool, delicious restaurant, clean comfortable rooms. It's not cheap but it is a delightful place and it's perfectly positioned for a historical visit to Santo Domingo. Thank you for looking after us so well.

The hotel is beautiful, located in the Santo Domingo Colonial Zone.. Not the nicest part of the colonial zone but it will continually get better. The rooms are amazing, very comfortable, spacious and will all the needs covered. The looks of the room make it very nice and make you feel good. I had a room with a view to a colonial ruin which made it feel very very special. The breakfast is super and with many yummy options. I only have 2 negatives... 1) there is very little parking space in the area and it is very very possible that you have nowhere to park your car. They have valet and a parking lot, however, if you leave the area and come back later at night you will have absolutely no place to park due to the amounts of people that go to the colonial zone and use the same parking spaces. I had to park very far away on a street and i was lucky that it was a rental car and not a fancy car that could possibly get vandalized. 2) I had a room on the 3rd floor and on one of the nights we wanted an early nights rest, but the rooftop bar was too loud and I could hear the chairs moving and the music playing. It was shut down like midnight if i remember right, but for those who want to sleep in early, it wasn't great.
This hotel is in a great location in the colonial district of Santo Domingo, less than a five minute walk to the main square. The property is in an historic building which has been tastefully modernized to accommodate the hotel. The rooms are small but very clean and well appointed. The bathroom was a good size, clean and stylish. The bed was not a comfortable as I would have liked. It was very firm and set low to the ground. The staff was good but I believe needs more training and supervision from a manager with experience. The wait staff in the main floor restaurant was overly deliberate. This property is orientated for couples rather than families.
