the street where La Danae is located is full of small hotels and B&Bs. we arrived without prior booking to a different hotel following feedback on web and found it closed; the Danae was next door and we decided to stay for the 1 night in Santo Domingo in there.
I must say the terrace at the entrance was the best part of the hotel.
the staff spoke very little English.
we got a room without any view. The room was not very tidy, and neither nicely decorated. It had no AC but had a noisy ventilator on the ceiling.
the breakfast was not included in the rate.
this was a year ago but if my memory does not fail me, I killed a cockroach there.
in any event, I would not go back to La Danae.
