The location is perfect as you have restaurants, cafes and everything you might need walking distance. However, being on the Main Street made it extremely noisy even with windows closed. ( perhaps triple glazed windows?)
The cleanliness was a bit disappointing simply because the apartment was being cleaned once every three days. Personally every 3 days is a bit too much.
We used their website to book a room which was advertised with a sea side view which was nowhere to be seen even by looking from the window. To get to the beach it’s a 10 mins walking distance. (See pictures)
The overall communication/customer service with the property wasn’t one of the best. We knew we were not in a hotel but they could have been more informative.
It’s to be said that upon on arrival we were offered a bottle of wine and exquisite figs, much appreciated.
We had a very nice stay here. Was clean and the staff were very friendly. We had a spacious room for 4 people. It came with lots of useful things such as, a washing machine, iron, oven etc. It also was two floors which connected by spiral stairs (be aware if this is an issue). Furthermore, we had a terrace which provided such a beautiful view of the cathedral and the castle; really topped the place off for us! It is also in literally the most perfect location, being right near the marina, castle, cathedral, beach and on the main street. We had a decent nights sleep, beds weren't perfect but they were pretty good for not being your own!
The apartments are great for when you don't feel the need to have all of the services of the hotel but still want a pleasant place to stay. You really get a Spanish and homely feel.
(Just as a side note, we didn't see any fire alarms or fire routes in the apartments? Not sure if we just missed it or if it isn't necessary in Spain. However, we feel that there should be some in the apartments as a safety procedure)
What a brilliant location, so near historic buildings, shops, restaurants and the Marina. Lovely apartment with a terrace and had everything you needed for your stay, including a washing machine. Check in was very easy and quick, the Staff were exceptional so nice and helpful, got maps and directions to several places I wanted to see. Had a mid-week cleaning of the apartment and it was fully cleaned, linens and all towels changed. Great security into the room and building, also had a lift to all apartments, very disability friendly, also great for a solo traveller, felt really safe. There was only one downside to the whole apartment and that was lack of hot water, there was only enough hot water for one very quick shower, for me this was disappointing as I do love a decent shower and have disabilities, so it takes a little longer for me to shower. Overall a perfect stay in a superb location with a lovely apartment. Highly recommend these apartments will definitely be booking again.
I stayed here for three nights in January.
My room was spacious and clean and contained a fridge,kettle, electric hob and flat screen TV. Wifi worked well. Check in was quick and easy.
It is in a central location, close to restaurants, bars and public transport. There is a great little tapas bar around the corner called D'tablas. Everything is within walking distance including the castle and the bus to the airport. The ALSA bus station is about a 30 minute walk and the train station about 25 minutes.
There was some building work going on while I was there (I assume the apartments are being refurbished) but it didn't bother me as it didn't start until 9am and I was out for most of the day.
I would highly recommend these apartments.
The owners of these apartments are wonderful. They speak a variety of languages, Spanish (obviously), French, German and English.
I am very frank, you can see from my previous reviews, but honestly the apartment and the owners are wonderful. The apartment is well equipped, excellent WiFi, good tv, centrally placed, clean rooms with excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities.
The most important thing of all is the kindness shown by the owners. We arrived impromptu and they sorted room, luggage, beach towels(personally lent), taxi and told us about supermarkets.
The apartments are suitable for all travellers as good lift access and very central.
A gem in Alicante; didn’t want to share as wanted to keep this find all to myself!
