Very pleasant, to be repeated

I have been staying at Billini Hotel several times in the past 5 years. The location simply is perfect and the ambiance modern combined with true historical architectural elements. You can ‘feel’ the Zona Colonial - without missing modern amenities.
Besides a stunning rooftop bar and pool, they feature a restaurant and a romantic cafe, next to a historic Catholic Church from the 16th century.
It is great to see that Billini Hotel not only kept their standards but improved - the new F&B manager and Chef de cuisine not only changed the m

Escaping at best

I have been several times to Santo Domingo and stayed at several places. Some of the next door to the Billini actually. I have almost always been satisfied when staying in the Colonial Zone. As it was highly recommended by some of my friends, I decided to give a try to Billini and was very happy of my choice. The rooms are very nice, the hotel setting is beautiful and the staff is incredible. Every one of them is attentive to details and make you feel at home. It is a well-kept little secret and I suggest everyone to try it. It is also well located. I will for sure go back as soon as possible. Thank you to the staff. 

Our New Favorite in Santo Domingo

We live in the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and have to go to Santo Domingo occasionally for business. We have tried other hotels but this last trip sealed the deal for us - The Billini is officially our hotel in Santo Domingo. This quaint yet modern boutique hotel is located very conveniently in the heart of the Colonial Zone near shops and restaurants. We rented three rooms for ourselves and our daughters. All were clean, well appointed, with comfortable beds and all the expected amenities. Upon our arrival we were offered a refreshing tropical drink. Check in and checkout was very easy. The hotel offers beautiful landscaping, a rooftop pool, a breakfast buffet and the decor offers an homage to its' historic origins. We all enjoyed our stay and will be returning soon.  


Heads up as usual to the Billini ! We sought refuge here with my wife during hurricane Irma off the north coast. Oscar could not have been more helpful and the staff more professional in these difficult times. This hotel is beautifully kept, wonderful staff and always a pleasure to visit. 

Spontaneous Stay 

Driving thru Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone I decided to visit Billini Hotel for a Drink, after a couple of drinks I decided to Stay for the Night, the immediate hospitality from its staff and I was quickly accommodated in a Beautiful Authentic Colonial Hotel Room, decoration is incredibly beautiful, bathrooms are very spacey and modern, great lightings, beds are super comfortable, quilts and pillows A+, Cable Service and Wi-Fi work fast. Rooftop Pool Ladies and Gents! With Full Bar and a Historic View all around. You must eat breakfast and then continue your day, Hope you enjoy!  - 

Executive Suite Splurge 

En suite outdoor jacuzzi? Yes please ! Great spot in the heart of the Zona Colonial. This hotel has many facets, from the rooftop pool and Moon Bar to their lobby dining room & bar, this place exudes history and style. The staff offers Very accommodating hospitality. We didn't hear a peep at night but wherever I travel my earplugs go along for the ride. Have not used them since Barcelona 2013! Bravo Billini nice job. -  

Charming Boutique Hotel in Colonial Zone 

Great hotel in walking distance of everything. Charming and helpful staff, beautiful rooms and roof top bar and restaurant. Great decor combining old and new. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Much nicer than the hotels on the waterfront! Room Tip: some rooms have cathedral views and own terraces. -SEP 28, 2016 


I work as a Guest Relations Manager in the hotel industry back home, so 1) I am quite picky about my own hotel experiences since I rarely get to stay in other hotels since I work so much and 2) I know outstanding customer service, clean surroundings and an overall great vibe when I feel it. The Billini Hotel was absolutely incredible from the moment we walked in. From the warm & welcoming staff who welcomed us with complimentary mojitos (my favorite drink-yes!), to the rooftop pool at sunset (the servers, appetizers & drinks were on point), to our room (you didn't want to leave your bed for days!) is perfect for a romantic getaway! The room has fantastic amenities and the mini bar is complimentary (waters, sodas & a juice). The decor and cleanliness of the hotel is top notch. There is also an incredible Arab restaurant within a block of the hotel-Falafel. Best meal ever, hands down, with romantic rooftop dining. I cannot say enough about this brief but divine hotel and dining experience! Don't hesitate and book it-you get a lot of bang for your buck ;) Stayed September 2016, traveled as a couple. - SEP 02, 2016
