Hotel Casas del XVI
Grupo Vicini is behind the opening of the Hotel Casas del XVI, a five star hotel located in twenty renovated 16th century mansions in Santo Domingo's Colonial City. Some RD$800 million is being invested in the venture. Upon making the announcement, Juan Vicini said they would be inviting other property owners in the Colonial City to join the project.
At present they are taking bookings for two houses, the Casa del Arbol (Calle Padre Billini 252) and the Casa de los Mapas (Calle 19 de Marzo No. 115).
The boutique hotel is scheduled for a 23 April opening with 17 rooms in five houses.
The hotel has been open since 14 March and is now offering pre-opening rates of US$225-US$265.
Hotel Casas del XVI is a collection of colonial era mansions converted into modern hotels. The project is due for completion in 2016.
Dominican architects and interior decorators Juan Mubarak, Juan Batlle, Alejandro Marranzini, Cristina Perez and Patricia Reid worked on the renovations.
The perks include iPhones that are lent to each guest. The property is managed by Prohotel International and marketed by Small Luxury Hotels of the World. The hotel is located at Calle Padre Billini 252 in the Colonial City.
