Comfortable Apt. "Laura Virginia" in Santo Domingo
Description from the owner
Nice two bedroom apartment in the best sector of Gazcue, very close to "Plaza de la Cultura". Seven minutes from "Zona Colonial" and "Malecón". Close to a Metro station. Good restaurants and night clubs in a quiet & secure neighborhood of Santo Domingo.
Everything that guests would probably need is in this apartment: Most kitchen appliances, washing machine, dryer, Internet connection (WiFi). Each one of the bedrooms has its own bathroom, Air Conditioner and Cable TV. There is a half bathroom for visitors. A balcony. And this apartment is in a very important area of the city.
Just across the street is "Plaza de la Cultura", where visitors have access to the National Library, National Theater, National Museum of History, National Museum of Natural History, National Museum of the Dominican Man (anthropology), National Art Gallery, National Theater, “Maniqui” Restaurant, “Cinema Café” night club and a Metro station. This part of the city is just 5-7 minutes from "Zona Colonial" and "Malecón". Medical Service is just two blocks away, including 24 hour emergency service. There are also banks, grocery stores, drug stores, bars and restaurants in this area.
Guests will be by themselves in the apartment, but they will be able of contacting me anytime for any reason. To make this possible I will facilitate a prepaid mobile phone and my phone number. Guests just need to buy time for the phone. This can be done in any of the grocery stores in the are for less than $3 USD. Of course, guests can use this phone for all their personal need during their stay in the apartment.
The Neighborhood is a very quiet part of the city and a very nice one. Most of the neighbors are professionals or employees at a management level. Important government offices, as the Central Bank, the National Police Headquarters and a few ministries are in this area. Services and security are much better here than in other sectors of the city.
There are lines of public transportation very close by, including a Metro station in "Plaza de la Cultura". Taxis can also be called by phone, which I strongly recommend, and they normally arrive in a few minutes. The apartment has its own parking lot in case the guest wants to rent a car.
Other Things to Note is that in this building there is an electric generator that keeps the electricity in case there is an energy failure in the area, something less frequent in this sector than in any other sectors or the city. This means that there is no electric failure in this building. Also, there is delivery service to this apartment from the grocery store that is close by. Guest will have the number to call and the goods ordered by phone will be at the building door in a couple of minutes....Read more
