It is more than I bargained for, yes I saw some bad reviews and decided to still stay at this hotel but I was dumfounded when I found out it was even worse than people described it would be. You shouldnít make the mistake of staying at this hotel if you do not want to be waking up every three minutes throughout the night to ward off bugs trying to suck your blood. It was a horrible experience and I will never go back unless this place is upgraded totally. My stay here was just for one night but I originally planned on staying for the whole business trip but I couldnít do it. Donít get me wrong, Santo Domingo is a beautiful city but that hotel is a distraction if you on vacation and trying to have the best time of your life just donít bother going there. The room looked cleaned when I arrived and the air condition looked fine as well but after a while it stopped working. I arrived late so after check in I went straight to bed. The bathroom was disgusting and I just couldnít stay one more day. When I tried to sleep at night, something bit me but I taught it was mosquito so I tapped it and resumed my sleep only for me to receive another bite and then I woke up to check it out, lo and behold bugs everywhere. It was on the mattress, under the pillows and all, I went to the guy I saw and he changed rooms for me but it wasnít any better just that there was no bug or less I didnít really care, I just wanted to leave the place.
"Nice, friendly and secure place in the middle of the town."
