I have stayed there once before. It is very clean and the people there are always very friendly and helpful. There is always hot water and good pressure. (One luxury I always need is a hot shower). The desk speaks English if your Spanish is not so hot. The trip before I had an older room, not quite as nice as the newer ones but still very clean. That room had a balcony and a view of Santiago. (One of the main attractions of this place is that it is very high and overlooks all of Santiago) This time I had a basement room. Large and very clean, no problems, I just missed sitting out on the balcony reading. The maids were very nice. (Putting flowers in the room and rose petals on the bed.) The restaurant was very good serving free breakfast. You can eat inside the restaurant or outside on the balcony with a spectacular view of the city at night. I stayed 6 days and always had my meals on the balcony. Some words of warning. The place is hard to find, even for the local cab drivers. Have a map or insure the cab driver knows where it is. The weather is often cool. Both times I was there I needed a jacket at night and sometimes during the day. There is not much to do there. You can walk, read, watch cable TV, eat in the restaurant, or spend romantic time. A walk a ways down the main road is very nice, the walk back up will have you breathing hard. Cab drivers do not like to travel the main road at night, a little dangerous because of the altitude and the road. On another subject, if you are flying into the DR for the first time, there is a $10 tourist card you need to get. This must be bought before going through customs. Have the change and things will go faster.
