To get into the city you need a bus then a tube but as Spains public transport is very good, this isn't too much of a problem.
Not a great deal nearby, but there is a big shopping centre around the corner. This houses a decent supermarket and a load of shops and restaurants. Further down the road there's an Irish bar called The Clover House. They do decent food and the staff are lovely. The staff also speak English which is a big help. Some of the restaurants in the shopping centre only have menus in Spanish and don't speak much English - but they are as helpful as they can be.
The apartments themselves are ok. The staff all speak English and there's 24 hour reception. The issue myself and my colleagues have is mainly centred around what they give you to use in the kitchen. It all seems a bit 'lottery' like.
Only 1 fork in one apartment, others had 2. Some had no cups, I had 4. No kettle, no toaster. There is a hob and a microwave that grills - but no microwave safe bowls or dishes.
I also got 2 frying pans - both of which were filthy and greasy and both handles came off after a vigorous washing.
As I said, the location is a tad remote and we are surrounded by offices and a big bread factory. My apartment isn't road facing though so I can't hear anything from that side.
What I can hear is the drunk holiday makers coming back from their night out. I understand that this is a holiday complex but this has also been advertised as good for us business folks. There are 4 blocks of apartments - I don't understand why they didn't keep one block for business use and the other 3 for the holiday people.
The holiday people slam doors, shout to each other from the opposite ends of the halls and just generally make noise. Not so funny when you've got to get up for work at 6am. Not much good for a lie in either as there usually some child (who has probably just been refused a bag of sweets) going absolutely beserk.
So. Apart from the kitchen utensils, it is clean.
Ok for a week or two - certainly not for 6 months.
