The only explanation I can think of for the outstanding value offered by this apart-hotel is the location, which is to the south of the city, fifteen minutes from the centre by a frequent bus or five minutes in a 6 Euro taxi ride.
Rooms are basic, but comfortable and well-equipped with kitchenettes, bathrooms with a real bath (I'd been resigned to three days of showers) and a balcony with table, chairs and - this being Spain - ashtray. Everywhere in the complex is spotlessly clean.
'Complex' doesn't do it justice, really. It's more like an immaculately-run three-star hotel. A decent breakfast spread (no hot dishes) is included, amazingly, in the very accessible price. There's a pleasant bar in the evening offering snacks and drinks, Best of all is the poolside areas; lots of smart loungers, gazebos and stylish outdoor sofas and armchairs, with chic lighting after dark - pushing four-star in this department.
So, altogether amazing value for money. And - big bonus this - it's within walking distance of one of my favourite clubs, anywhere, the wonderful Garito Cafe. Result!
