“Best place to stay in Santo Domingo”
Just as the title of this review suggests, this apartment unit is indeed the BEST PLACE that anyone can stay at while in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. I am a very FREQUENT traveler to the Dominican Republic. I have traveled here well over ten times since July 2013. I have mostly stayed in Santo Domingo at various hotels and lodging. Therefore, I feel that I am very qualified to make the statement of this apartment being the best place to stay while in the capital. I grew tired of the "hotel" experience and wanted to stay in an "apartment" type setting that was secure and allowed me to actually "live" in Santo Domingo without feeling all "touristy". This apartment met and exceeded my expectations. I was "googling" heavily one night in June 2014. I was searching for short term apartment rentals in Santo Domingo. I came upon "Flipkey" in Trip Advisor and immediately knew that I would find what I was looking for. I saw the entry for this property and the pictures and immediately fell in love. I contacted the owner, Mitch, via email. In a snap of the finger, he answered my inquiry. That was within minutes. I asked him many questions regarding the property and he answered ALL OF THEM. Also, much of our contact was via whatsapp. So he was basically available around the clock to answer any questions or deal with any concerns that I had about the property. He was easily the best person that I have dealt with online. After feeling satisfied about the property, I submitted my payment (very economical) to Mitch. Everything went through smoothly. Then the day would quickly come when I arrived in Santo Domingo and was taken to the apartment complex by my friend who is a taxi driver. When I laid eyes on the building, I was totally in awe. The building, from the outside, was very pretty and looked like a well kept property. My friend, who is bilingual (Spanish & English) made contact with a guy at the front gate. I showed my ID to the guy and he took us upstairs to the apartment unit. After going inside, my mouth dropped. Read on. This was easily the cleanest apartment unit that I have ever laid eyes on. Everything about the place was neat, clean, and in very good order. Aside from that, just about every basic amenity that you could ask for was present. I will attempt to name them all. The apartment had a washer and dryer (I used it many times), a full kitchen with everything a normal kitchen would have, a separate dining room area (table, couch, speakers for your music device/phone), closet with nice fresh and clean linen, an impeccably clean bathroom (I had my own toiletries), a full master bedroom, a wall A/C unit, several dressers, large mirror, a nice sized flat-panel LCD/HD TV (with great cable service) , wifi, and a nice balcony overlooking the quiet area (Calle Casimira de Moya). I literally had to pinch myself. One thing that stood out to me, the wifi was very fast and strong. I had ZERO issues with that. The apartment unit itself is secure. There is a security gate outside of the regular door. The whole apartment building itself is secured behind two large metal automatic gates with a guard at the front main gate. When returning to the building from La Sirena (grocery store), I used the key fob to open the gate and enter the parking lot (via taxi). But the neighborhood is in Zona Colonial and near the Malecon. It was very safe and quiet at night. I took many walks. Lots and lots of Tourist Police crawling around the area. Never felt unsafe or had any problems. It is in a great location. All in all, renting and staying here for six days was a GREAT experience. That greatness was helped by the fact Mitch was very responsive to me. I am trying to think of one issue or problem that I may have had. Sorry, I cannot. The experience was totally GREAT. If you are looking for PERFECTION, this is it.
"For me this apartment option was much better than any hotel and I liked the location very much, its 2 streets away from the main road so there is not any noise, and has a nice supermarket near, charming balcony and beautiful trees everywhere. I will rent here again Vous disposez de tout ce dont vous pourriez espérer. Le lieu est calme et sécurisé avec une supérette à 1 minute à pied. On dispose d'un confort et d'une tranquilité et j'ai donc décidé que se serait mon appartement de prédilection, si il est disponible quand je voyagerai.
“This location is beautiful, its home away from home!!!”
For me,it was the best decision to spend my 3 weeks vacation here, and although Mitch had mentioned how comfortable I would be, it really did exceed my expectation. I have rented other apartments in Mitch's inventory but this one by far is my favorite place and it suits me the best, it just feels like home and all my friends that visited loved it too. There was always hot water,reliable internet, and enough TV channels to distract me although I'm not a big TV watcher. The garage is covered below the building so my car didn't burn up from the hot sun, the convenience of having a remote control and parking spaces near the elevator made it all the more easier. This will be my regular apartment for future stays.
I spent a week in Mitch's apartment Upon arrival a helper for Mitch was there to collect the rent he gave me a receipt and the keys. The place is completely clean and nice. Equipped with 2 Fans, AC unit for Bedroom only, Stove, Fridge, Washer/dryer, Trashcans towels(nice fluffy ones) toilet paper, plenty of hangers, storage and TV, Wireless internet(only reaches a single room), room safe, and an entertainment system designed for a tablet or cell phone. The guards at the gate were / are very helpful the whole building area is nice and clean - it looks completely new. Bank - close by - exit the complex onto the street make a left at the end of the block make a left go to the end of the block and on the right across the street is a little store / pharmacy inside is a bank with an aTM works great. There are several mercados (grocery stores)near. Several restaurants and where you found the bank I mentioned above is across the street a Cafeteria that has aC and that is where you can find taxis - be sure to ask the price as you get in. Remember they do not speak english - I took 3x5 cards and wrote where I wanted to go in spanish(from the internet google translate) and the apartment address so I could get back. Negative - not much - Mitch was very responsive to any requests for help - the bed I personally do not like the memory foam mattresses and this one seems to have been used so that is slopes to one side (my memory foam mattress at home does the same thing, its for sale)
“Excellent Steal for the price!”
I arrived at the apartment, very clean, organized, exactly like the pictures but actually had more items, like a safe, microwave, and a cool set of speakers and subwoofer to play my music. Its got an easy to find location, quick access to just about any part of the city, and I hope to rent again this year. You can't beat the price.. the Marriott just around the corner charges as much or even more, and they make it hard to have friends over without an extra charge. At this apartment, I had friends over, relaxed, great doorman and security, just like being at home. Will definitely rent again.
This condo beats my expectation. It's beautiful outside and inside. Extremely clean and well kept. A lot better than some hotels I stayed at. There is a security guard on site 24 hrs. The area is great where it's located. It's conveniently located near Zona Colonial where everything is happening. I loved that the balcony is right off of the bedroom. The condo has everything: audio system, refrigerator, flat screen TV, AC, wireless internet. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay her again. Mitch also provided me with a driver who knew English, which made my trip perfect. Best of all you can't beat the price.
“Dwayne Brazil Great time at Santo Domingo apartment !!!”
"I had the pleasure of staying here for nearly 3 weeks. It was simply great. I couldn't have imagined pay more to the Marriott which is literally 2 minutes away, and receiving substantially less. This apartment is much bigger than the pictures. Since I was the first person that actually stayed in this new apartment, a few little things were missing but Mitch and his staff were able to deliver them immediately. I like to have a safe to place my valuables, they brought me a new one within 24 hours. The breeze and ambiance from the balcony is beautiful, relaxing, practically romantic. I rented a car so having the remote control for the gated garage was a wonderful convenience. I already have my reservation for this apartment booked for October, and would highly recommend it."
I've rented from Mitch before and decided to try this apartment.It is certainly better than what the pictures depict. It might actually be one of the nicest and coziest apartments I have rented. It provides easy access to the important avenues and conveniently located near a supermarket. Unlike other apartments, they didn't go cheap on things, very comfortable bed, a nice washer/dryer and fast reliable internet for Skype calls and Netflix. I will definitely rent again."
