Compared to some of the other hotels in the area, this is the only one that offers consistently functioning air conditioning (the other frequently loose the power for it). They also have cable TV which includes some English language channels if that's your thing. Finally they are literally only about a 10 minute walk from El Conde and the colonial zone if you want to do some sightseeing. Gascue is an extremely safe area in general.
Rooms are extremely clean and unlike many hotels in the area, they have many wireless access points in the hotel that function extremely well (instead of just 1 that 50 people all try to use at the same time). Compared to the residencia across the street, and the bella epoca uptown, this is definitely the best value.
When I am in Santo Domingo and low on funds, this is ALWAYS the hotel that I choose. Just don't expect a mint on your pillow and you will be fine.
