We rented this apartment at the very last minute before leaving. We were looking for a place where we could cook our own meals while visiting Santo Domingo and the island. We contacted the renter by email and he quickly provided us with all the info we needed to go there and move easily in the city. We rented a car at the airport, so it was a bless to discover that this property has a closed gate where we could leave our car during the night. The apartment was just great and the renter extremely kind and helpful. Air conditioning (not obvious in Dominican Republic), wi-fi, washing machine, tools for cooking, iron, safe, TV etc... everything was in place. The location is good especially if you are visiting the colonial zone -- but with the car, in less than an hour we could be to Boca Chica and in little more we went to the fantastic Bayahibe. At the end, this apartment was exactly what we were looking for, for the price we were looking for, with no bad surprise of any sort during our stay.

“Excellent Apartment”

This was my second stay at this apartment and it has been excellent every time. The well equipped kitchen made it very easy to enjoy breakfast each day and to cook several special dinners while there. The wi-fi internet and cable tv were very good. The security was very good. The apartment is very clean with a nice view of the city and a very nice breeze. The location is perfect for exploring the Malecon and other parts of the city. The museums of the Plaza de Culture are nearby. Check in and check out were quick and painless. A great experience compared to an expensive hotel. The money saved on meals and wine alone almost pay for the very reasonable rates. There is also a two bedroom unit available that was shown to us and was even more spacious. A great deal in great location.

I enjoyed the apartment very much. My wife was able to cook for me while I watched tv. I was able to use my laptop with the wifi with no problem. The living room and kitchen together was a little small but still able to use and felt comfortable. The bedroom was nice and spacious the air conditioning was good, plenty of closet space with a safe inside. The bathroom was very nice and clean, good water pressure. There is no elevator and the apartment is on the 4th fl so carry lite, I didn't mind to walk up the steps. Petteri was very nice to us and informative, very professional thru the whole process.

First I must start out by saying Petteri Yliniitty the owner and manger is very professional and that is very important when you are traveling abroad. This apartment is in a very good location in the Barrio of Gazcue and you are walking distance to supermarket,restaurants and the malecon . The apartment is safe and secured and you do not have to worry about your possessions and plus there is a safe in the apartment itself . There is back up power in the apartment if needed and wi fi and cable tv and washing machine etc . If you are looking for a option other than hotel this is it if you are going to be staying 4 or more days. This is a residential building where there are families so you do need to be respectful ,but everyone I saw was very friendly .

“Very Good Value”

The apartment was a great value. The reservation process was very easy and handled very professionally. We were met promptly and the initial check-in was fast and painless. The parking is secure and convenient. The location is excellent in a quiet residential area with easy access to several small stores (calmados) and a short walk to several good restaurants and the seaside boulevard (Malecon). Bus route connections are also nearby. There is a good size supermarket about a 10-15 minute walk away and there is a delivery service available by phone from the local colmado for convenience store type items. Bear in mind this is not a hotel so you need to supply your own essentials. The apartment itself was VERY clean and very nice. It has a full kitchen with oven and all the pots and pans etc. that you need in a kitchen. It has cable TV, stereo and DVD for entertainment. There is 24 hour security and a safe in the apartment. The security of the apartment doors and windows were both strong and attractive. The view of the city is very good as the apartment is on the 4th floor. The constant sea breaze was outstanding and made it very comfortable. In our whole stay we only used the air conditioner twice. There are only two minuses that I would mention. The apartment is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator so if you are carrying anything and are averse to excercise you may huff and puff. The other minus is the bed. It was two single beds/mattresses that were attached together. While comfortable enough, the seam between the mattresses at times was a bit uncomfortable. There was a cleaning service twice a week but we did not use it other than the friendly and helpful manager dropping off clean towels halfway through our stay. There is a 4 night minimum stay. If I had more time to spend in the capital I would not hesitate to rent this gem of an apartment for a long stay. The checkout was prompt, fast and painless. (leave it as you found it ). I look forward to my next stay at Santo Domingo Apartments.

Totally awesome...very clean, safe location, and near downtown. I have visited SQD a few times before and have always done the fancy hotels...but NEVER no more. This little place was a dream house away from home. The Manager was very knowledgeable about the area and the lifestyle. He gave the feeling of a family friend visiting his home...super! (Thanks for all your help!) This property is in one of the upscale areas in SDQ. It was very safe and quite...the nights were awesome and the mornings were very refreshing. It was about a 10 minute walk from the shopping area with many food sites close by. The property staff was always professional and courtesy. Great view of the area.. nice nieghbors. This was one of the best vacations in the islands ....and yes, did I mention it was CLEAN. No...more hote for mel...this is my little home away from home. Its A MUST!
