It feels like you are in Italy! A review of Hotel Dolce Villa

This is truly an unique place.

My wife and I needed some time off together and away from our kids, but we didn't have enough time to go too far, therefore we decided to stay in town. We are both very fussy and, above all, we needed a place that didn't make us feel we were in town.

We heard about a small hotel that just opened in the heart of Federal Hill, which is the destination for fine dining restaurants in Providence. Perfect. We decided to take a look, and they were kind enough to take us for a tour even before we booked a room. What a place. We immediately felt we were in Italy. The decor is completely candid white: floors, walls, furniture, appliances, everything. Every room has a full kitchen. Yes, a FULL KITCHEN. Big refrigerator, stove, oven, etc.. Never seen that before. Every bathroom has a jacuzzi, and the double bedrooms even have a fireplace.

Our room had a TV in the living room and one in the bedroom with both VCR and DVD player. The mattress is memory-foam. When I woke up in the morning I didn't have my usual back ache.

The service was unusually personalized, something we never experienced in the big hotels. More like in Italy.

We fell in love with the place. They had an introductory price of $125.00. I don't know how long it's going to last, but we can't wait until we go back. Kids permitting, of course.
