For roughly €20 per head per night, this really is a gem of a place. Located just one or two stops from the city centre on the easy-to-use Metro system, the English-speaking staff were extremely helpful and friendly. If, like us, you don't take laptops, tablets or smartphones on holiday, then you'll appreciate the communal iPad available in reception, which came in very handy for directions, quick google searches and the likes. The company also offer a service whereby they can collect you from the airport for a reasonable €22 (if 4 people or under) - useful if your flight gets in late. Upon our arrival reception had closed, but it posed no problems as the caretaker/security guy in charge was expecting us and provided our keys at 11pm at night - we weren't pressurised to pay, quite the opposite as I took it upon myself to approach reception about payment the following day. The apartment itself was modernly furnished, with an entire kitchen full of cooking equipment and a clean microwave and electric oven. The only slight gripe I have with our stay was that the TV they provided didn't work. I'm not one for retiring to the room on holidays, but on one day I picked up a tummy bug and wished to make use of their free DVD rental facilities. I was promised maintenance would sort out the TV, but no one arrived. Other than that, I can't praise this place enough - I'd certainly book again.
