Nestled in the heart of the oldest city in the New World, Santo Domingo’s Ciudad Colonial, the houses make up Casas del XVI. You can step back in time and experience the vibrant culture, romantic architecture and stunning monuments born of the Spanish Colonial era here. The hotel keeps the beauty of the colonial houses and you can live in individual houses, dating back to the earliest European Settlers.
Sprinkled across a two-block area, the iconic houses were originally built in the Spanish Colonial era with classic roman roofs and brick arches remaining intact today. With a focus on both preserving the original architecture and also celebrating the vibrant Dominican culture, the interior of each house is decorated according to a theme relating to Dominican culture and Spanish Colonial history. Featuring an eclectic mix of ancient artifacts, local artwork and handcrafted furniture, the cozy home interior enchants guests with its colonial charm. A butler in each house tends to guests every need, allowing for an unforgettable experience of historic luxury.
