I think most people stay at El Hotel de Los Jardines (i think that is what it is called). From what I have heard it is right around the corner and the cheapest place around. Look at the reviews for the embassy in DR, I believe alot of VJers mention it in there.

Good Luck!

Yes I've read plenty of interview experiences and it looks like most people stay there, and they always say something very nice about it. Especially that it is super close to the embassy.

Good luck.

Jardines del teatro...my husband and i stayed there when we had our interview. it's around the block from the embassy, the rooms are inexpensive, you can have a room with a kitchen and the supermarket is 2 or 3 blocks away...everything is within walking distance....
