Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay if you want to experience the colonial city in its fullest. Walking distance to all the colonial town and the pool is so refreshing after a sweaty day walking around.

The only draw back is the street sellers, be firm don't be shy.

Great property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I recently stayed here for 3 days and loved this property. The apartment is pretty spacious and we really liked that the building has 24 hour security. The pool was great and the views from the top floor are not to be missed. The apartment is also centrally located and made navigating around the old city extremely convenient. Claudia was also responsive to our inquiries and made our stay enjoyable.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment very much. It is small, but it has everything needed for a pleasant stay, i.e. good air conditioning, refrigerator, shower, etc. The doormen were great, the courtyard, terrace, and pool are elegant, and the whole building is charming. It is located in the heart of the old city and the tourist district.

This little loft condo had everything you needed to experience Old Town and feel like you were in the middle of things. Thank goodness for the shutters that kept the noise out. The pool was a the big bonus, so nice to cool off and spend time in a quiet area amidst the business of Old Town. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice to have the water filter and hot water too.
