You could never ask for a better host - Petteri the host, is trustworthy, timely and reliable. I felt so much at home in this studio that I had to extend my stay from 3 days to 11 days. The spectacular view of sunset from the studio, with the sea melting into the sky at the horizon, is breathtaking. There is a round-the-clock security-guard presence and, the availability and free access to the washing machine/dryer on the same floor is invaluable. I will recommend this studio to anyone seeking for privacy, comfort and security stay in Santo Domingo.
I did not think I could improve on the last review that I did in August for this location, but I must say that again I am impressed with this location. The view is great, the staff and security in the building are very good. Cannot wait until the next visit.
Excellent location with great security. The apartment is as advertised and Petteri will address any concerns that you might have. I would definitely book this property again.
This apartment had everything I needed and wanted. Very comfortable and clean. There is a very busy main street in front of and behind the building so it can get noisey at times with alot of horns honking. There is a few places to eat within walking distance and a liquor store. Secure parking is nice. The view of the seaside is amazing an I really enjoyed my stay and would stay here again for the price. But I was not so happy about the separate electric bill that I was presented with at checkout, the bill came to over $60 US and I barely used the AC an lights. But overall its a good place.

The photos do it justice. The outside wall is 4, either 3 feet or 4 feet, sliding glass doors. Only the one on the far left opens. So the outside of the glass doors can't be cleaned. This cut down on the nice view a lot due to coating from the salf spray. Of the open door gives you a beautiful view. The comment that everyone makes in their review is that it is noisy. Quite noisy at that. But on a previous trip I stayed the the Jaragua Hotel and was awakened by roosters in the morning. Santo Domingo is a noisy city-all night long. I recomment ear plugs. In general not just at this apartment. The apartment is fine and I was very satisfied. Petteri was a great host. I did infact recommend this place to my best friend. SEPARATE TIP--take a crisp US$10 bill to use in the machine at the airport to buy your tourist card and avoid the lines for the clerk.
The condo was clean and very conveniently located for my purposes in Santo Domingo. The only problems are the noise and the traffic. It seems that the locals love their car horns and take delight in using them whenever possible. This isn't just this location, I don't think that you could find peace and quiet anywhere in Santo Domingo. Also the traffic is terrible anywhere near Santo Domingo. The rules of the road mean nothing to the majority of drivers. I would recommend this property for its affordability, location and comfort.
Place was extremely clean; located on a main strip referred to as the Malecon which boost the major hotels as well as casinos (also known as George Washington avenue); 5 to 10 min cab drive to the colonial zone by tax; modern oven and stove; radio as well as cds provided; cable tv with some English speaking channels such as MTV, VH1, CNN; power outlet in the bathroom; hot water at all times, the feeling of safety; doorman and basically a 15 min cab drive to Avenida Venuezulea and a 5 to 8 min cab drive to the zona colonial; cheap food and breakfas within walking distance; and perfect WIFI. The apartment was great for so a solo traveler such as myself.
