The location is great and our host was even better.

  • 5 of 5

We found that this apartment more than met our needs as two single travelers but the same could be said for a pair of couples or even a family. That's because having the sleeping quarters (each with their own bathrooms) on separate sides of the apartment gives you the feeling of space and privacy. The common areas are cozy but there's so much to do the second you step outside the building that it was never a problem for us. On the other hand, the noise can be a concern because garbage trucks operate all night long or at least in the early mornings, followed by revelers spilling out into the streets as the sun rises and leaving behind more garbage to be picked up. It seems more like a cultural thing than an issue with the apartment and when asking around even the locals will agree that the street noise is a problem but not enough that it should ruin your trip.

Our host Raul was super helpful, punctual, and full of suggestions. It was also nice to know that if we needed anything that he was just across the way. He was even gracious enough to store our luggage while we grabbed a bite before heading to the airport. He truly made us feel at home and it felt like a neighbor who wanted you to know that you were in a safe place.

Wonderful location, helpful host

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed in Raul's loft apartment for three nights in July. We were coming in from a road trip, and Raul was very patient and kind as he waited for us to arrive. He met us at the door and explained everything we needed to know, including information about local restaurants and convenience stores. The apartment was clean and comfortable, with ample linens and pillows. The bathrooms were the nicest we saw anywhere in Spain. We were concerned about the air conditioning units because he advised us that we should not run them in more than two rooms at a time, but this turned out to not be an issue at all because they all worked quickly and efficiently.

Travelers should know a few additional pieces about this place. First, it is right in the heart of the Historic district. That can be a lot of fun in the day, but it is VERY loud at night with ongoing street noise. Also, we had a very tall person with us, and he kept bumping his head. That should not stop anyone from renting this place, but it is something to know!

Again, I would highly recommend this apartment for Raul's help alone! We would not have gotten to the airport in time without his help ordering us a larger taxi on the last day of our stay, which he did not have to do for us. He made us feel like guests, rather than simply renters.

"Pros: very centrally located; our host helped us with any questions or any assistance we needed; air conditioner was very efficient when we needed it; apartment is very clean and well maintained; all amenities were provided for

Cons: it can get noisy but that is to be expected being right in the center; it would be nice if the owner can offer wifi"
