Mr. Gomez was very helpful and did his best to make sure I was well accommodated. The internet connection is acceptable. There is a washer on the property for tenants use. The apartment is one of perhaps 5 units and Mr Gomez lives on the premises and is usually available to help with any problems that may arise. I spent 3.5 months in the apartment and I would do it again. The area is very quite and safe. There were spaces for parking if one has a vehicle. There is a small super market approximately 2 minutes walk from the apartment and will deliver supplies to the apartment if help is solicited. Additionally, in the morning there tends to be a lot of traffic because the apartment building is situated between 3 popular learning institutions.
My experience here was excellent. The building and apartments within are very clean and well maintained, and The staff is very professional and honest. It is a subtle home environment and although across from the university (USAD), the evenings are very quite and peaceful. I rented here for six months and enjoyed every day. I left for the summer, but the owner Luis was kind enough to store the personal items acquired during my stay until I return. If you need a short or long term apartment in Santo Domingo, I highly recommend you make this location your first choice.
My sincere thanks to Luis and Elaine
I stayed in this apartment for 2 months and had no problems. The building is very safe and has all the things needed for a comfortable stay. Fast wifi, cable television, American washing machine and dryer, and the utilities were included. The apartment is a two minute walk to the metro station and a ten minute walk to the malecon ocean area. There is a grocery store nearby. Is a very good location for students of the University, which is across the street. The owner lives in the the building and speaks both English and Spanish. There is a maintenance man in the building whenever he is needed and even a woman that will clean your apartment for a small fee. I highly recommend staying here and if it is available when I return next december I will surely stay again.
