Just stayed for 2 nights, excellent value for money. Clean, very spacious and central. No problems except wifi was poor. Staff were friendly, air conditioning was perfect. I was a little anxious as to what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the overall place

I stayed with my gf two nights and loved the location, near everything. It had everything we needed for the price we paid. The stairs were rustic and with lovely writings on the walls, the wifi was nice although you can hear other people noises

This apartment is in a great location.. However we were on the 5th floor which is a lot of stairs to climb and no lift!! The room had 3 single beds and we are a couple.. The shower and bathroom very small.. The staff helpful and friendly and spoke English..

I stayed in these apartments for 10 nights. My stay was supposed to be in two parts - first 3 nights in a two bed apartment with friends, then 7 nights in a one bed apartment. I booked both parts of my stay at the same apartments to make my life easier not moving luggage around. However, on arrival, I... More

Worst stay in Spain - hotel staff (Alvaro) was dismissive and not helpful at all when asked to consider change in rooms since they gave us room at 5F (actually 6F) in building with no lift, which was a challenge not only to adults but risky for my 5-year old daughter navigating more than 105 steps of almost rotten staircase....

The perfect location, everything within walking distance. Metro Sol 200 metres. 4 stops to main train station. Apartment clean and basic but excellent value. Beware no lift can be tricky if at 5th floor. No outside noise if staying at back of building. Excellent place to stay for no hand holding travellers.

Good location but far too noisy bedrooms were road side and the noise was non stop day and night no soundproofing at all, tried sleeping on sofa bed in living area but the noise from fellow guests coming in at all hours shouting banging doors prevented sleep.
