It is hard to imagine there is a hotel behind the façade of this one-storey blue house located on the corner of the famous Calle de las Damas, the first street of the New World at the heart of Santo Domingo's preserved colonial zone. As its name suggests, the Coco is a boutique hotel and as such only offers five rooms that have been superbly decorated. The best part of it is the panoramic rooftop restaurant.

    Location 8.42 /10

    At the far end of the famous Calle las Damas, the oldest street in the Americas, not far from the Fortaleza, at the heart of Santo Domingo's colonial zone, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It takes about thirty minutes to reach the city from the Las Americas International Airport. Once you have checked in, you just have to go out the hotel's front steps to discover the treasures of the capital.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    In the guest rooms you will find the same red floor-tiling as at reception, brightened up with a rug. It's difficult to be indifferent to the decor, which brings to mind Goa in India. Everything is well-presented and original: a pretty bed with a green bedspread, a stylish purple bedside table, an armchair and a table brightening up the white walls. A large purple spoon decorates the entrance door (a reference to the name of the restaurant). The equipment, though, is limited: no television, safe, refrigerator or mini-bar. It's also a shame that there isn't a balcony! Nevertheless, you will benefit from discreet individual air-conditioning doubling as a fan and free Wi-Fi Internet access. The bathrooms are spacious and decorated with pretty patterns. They have a flexible shower cubicle, a toilet and a bidet, but no hospitality products.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    A member of the Maxer hotel group, this hotel opened its doors in 2007 at the heart of Santo Domingo's colonial zone. This is a charming boutique hotel where guests will feel at home. Fitted with red floor tiling, decorated with green plants, and furnished with comfortable white sofas and silver painted wooden coffee tables decorated with starfish, the convivial lobby with its bar is equipped with games and a library. A white staircase leads to the five guest rooms and onto the panoramic rooftop terrace where the restaurant is located. The view over the colonial zone is unobstructed, making it possible to even see the Columbus Lighthouse.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Spoon, the hotel's rooftop restaurant offers a beautiful panoramic view over Santo Domingo's colonial zone and all the way to theColumbus Lighthouse. Here you can enjoy local and international cuisine until 11:30pm. For breakfast, included in the price of the room and served on the patio between 8:00am and 10:00am, you will be able to enjoy excellent fresh juice made from locally grown fruit.

      The boutique El Palacio Hotel is nestled in a street of the Zona Colonial, the historic quarter of Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital. Set in the house of Buenaventura Báez, former Dominican president who served five terms during the 19th century, the hotel has plenty of period charm, the main draw of the establishment without 5-star hotel prices. The rooms are cosy and built on several levels, meaning guests have access to quaint leafy courtyards, adding to the pre-twentieth century ambience of the hotel.

      The Mercure Comercial, ideally located in the colonial zone, seems to be an appropriate stopover for a sightseeing tour in the capital with your family, but it is much less suitable for a long stay. The reason: its lack of charm.

      The Hodelpa Caribe Colonial is a nice small hotel in the centre of the old town whose modern, Art Deco style, contrasts with the historical monuments around it. The general architecture of the building, however, lacks style.

      In the heart of the Zona Colonial, the old quarter or colonial quarter, of Santo Domingo, the Dominican capital, the Nicolas de Ovando Hotel is more than just a hotel, but having been built in 1502 as the residence of the eponymous first Governor of the Americas, it is a city landmark and a Unesco World Heritage Site. Managed by French hotel management group Accor, the hotel is set prime location, and its luxury surroundings offer comfort and high standards to an upmarket clientele. The 5-star M Gallery Nicolas de Ovando Hotel is located in one of the first formal official streets of the New World in the Americas, making the building and this area of town a very popular spot with visitors and locals alike.

This 12-floor skyscraper lacks character but is nonetheless a very comfortable hotel: a perfect stopover to explore the first city of the New World.

      Doña Elvira is located in the heart of the Zona Colonial, or the colonial district of Dominican capital, Santo Domingo. A charming sixteenth-century boutique hotel that has seen better days and could do with a little bit of a revamp to bring it back to its former glory, but still provides a pleasant and quiet base to explore the surroundings from. A typical noble home with a central courtyard where you will find a pool, it stays relatively cool throughout the year.

      On the seafront in the capital, Santo Domingo, the Renaissance Jaragua is one of the biggest hotels in the city, so big in fact that you might almost think you're in a resort in Punta Cana, with its huge lagoon-like swimming pool in the middle of a vast tropical garden, its spa, its gym, its four tennis courts, and even a casino.

      A former private home from the 1860s, Atarazana is somewhat reminiscent of a Brasilian-style pousada, with its flower-filled patio sheltering a small basin and waterfall. This charming establishment only has six small rooms to offer. Guests are welcomed like members of the family by German owner Suzanne. Nestled at the heart of Santo Domingo's colonial zone, this small hotel is in an ideal location for discovering the riches of the first city to be discovered in the Americas. It is one of our favourites in the Dominican Republic.
