Reviews for Billini Hotel
Weâ€™re in Santo Domingo almost every year. Our son who lives there recommended this two-year old hotel well located in the Zona Colonial. It is indeed a modern, stylish place creatively carved out of historic buildings. With 24 rooms, itâ€™s intimate and design-centricâ€¦ a pleasant retreat from the chaotic streets of the capitol, complete with rooftop pool. The flaws, however, are serious. â€śWe do not offer that service.â€ť That was the answer when I asked the desk clerk to mail several stamped postcardsâ€¦Unforgivable in a 4-Diamond establishment. Our room was spacious and had some bells and whistles like wall-mounted blue tooth speakers and first world, many-channeled TV. However, the bedside lights werenâ€™t bright enough for reading; the overhead fan and light did not operate separately, making the fan useless for sleeping and avoiding air-conditioning. And, the true cheeze indicator: attached hangers in the closet suggesting that all guests are hanger thieves. The restaurant menu also left a lot to be desiredâ€¦No appealing lunch entrees. I do commend the staff for their cheerful friendliness and good English, even when refusing to do a simple thing for a guest.

We didn't stay here but on one of our walks in late afternoon saw the lights of the roof top bar and decided to check it out. Lovely spot which to enjoy the late afternoon twilight and look over the skyline.

Excellent hotel, very well located in the centre of the old town, elegant, quiet and well set up. We had 2 rooms on the ground floor, near the patio: great design, double king size bed with 8 pillows and a very well equipped bathroom. That was perfect to recover from a 10 hours flight! Breakfast included and nice. Don't miss the pool at the top even though the number of seats is limited, but wonderful view from the third floor across the city's rooftops.
We stayed here January 13-17. We had the foodie package with the executive cathedral view suite. We were a bit confused as we thought the room had a small private pool but did not. The entire place is solid charming and tranquil. It feels much more like you have actually traveled somewhere compared to staying in a cookie cutter all inclusive. The room was amazing. Spacious with a private terrace. We had a soaking tub and walk in shower. The water pressure was very good as was the AC. There were also plenty of electrical outlets. The bed was heavenly with a large variety of pillows and different weight blankets. There is also a ceiling fan that puts out a nice breeze without noise. The only thing we found displeasing with the room was a lack of bright light. There are a number of dim lights around the room and the bathroom was bright but the spacious closet was like a cave. I wish there had been a room light option as well as a light in the closet. Our room was a bit noisy in the evening being so close to the rooftop bar. The food: Breakfast is NOT American style if that's what you are looking for. There is fruit, bread, cold meats and relish, oatmeal,&juice. We had eggs and bacon made on some days but really didn't care for the taste. Had this not been included in our package I would not have chosen to pay extra for it. The other food is good. There are 3 places to sit to eat but they share a menu and kitchen. The drinks- including water are all extra. The kitchen staff was pleased to try to adapt food on the menu to our liking by adding or removing extras. We ate daily from the hotel but there was no shortage of nearby eateries. The food was all better than what we have found at the resorts. The hotel staff truly make it special. They are all GREAT!! At times it felt to me that they were too good. They are very much there to serve and seemed tense if I approached to ask for ketchup or something, as if they had slacked at their job. I'm sure many guests may expect this level of servitude but it was a little uncomfortable as I would rather feel a relaxed friendly atmosphere. All very friendly- but again a bit tense. People speak Spanish. It is the language there. We should adapt- there was always someone to step in who spoke English well but not every person does. I wouldn't expect them too. The front desk is very helpful and fluent as I was sure one nice young man had to be from New York so perfect was his "American". The area felt safe and friendly- mostly- like any city we kept our belonging put away and ran into a handful of indigent people's asking for money. There are nearby tours and plenty to see just walking about. Juan dolio and Boca Chica are nearby for beach days. We road the guaguas- local buses- and used a local driver who seemed to always be in from of the hotel- Felix. We have been to the DR 3 times and this stay at the Billini was by far my favorite. We saw several other accommodations while traveling around but never doubted that we had made the best choice with the Billini.

My husband and I had our wedding recently in Santo Domingo and hosted all of our out-of-town family and friends in the Billini Hotel. Our guests have told us that the hotel experience was one of the best highlights of the wedding weekend. Set in the heart of Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone, the Billini was a welcome departure from the typical hotel chain with its historic ambiance combined with boutique luxury services. The rooftop bar and pool was the ideal place for our rehearsal cocktail party and for our guests to relax by day and enjoy the views of colonial Santo Domingo. It's within easy walking distance of key culture sites, including the oldest Cathedral in the Americas, the Columbus museum, the Amber museum,a number of restaurants, and most importantly was next door to our ceremony venue - the 16th century Regina Angelorem Church. The hotel staff was also helpful in arranging a private bus for a day-trip to the beach and transportation to our wedding reception. My husband and I particularly enjoyed our suite, which included a roofdeck with Jacuzzi, where we relaxed while we were not busy doing wedding prep or taking advantage of the hotel's spa services (the one hour massage cannot be missed). Room service is also above par, and the staff beat our highest expectations when it came to attending to our unique needs --- not an easy feat given the chaos and unexpected demands of a wedding party. Only comment is that I wish there would have been more bottled water available in the rooms. I cannot express how highly I recommend the Billini for hosting a wedding or simply for a unique getaway for a couple, girls weekend or family. We're already dreaming of our next trip -- maybe first anniversary?
