With all the necessities for a pleasant city stay this apartment is ideal for uncomplicated travel and relaxation. Just the place when you need a clean & pleasant space to eat, sleep, shower etc. and put your feet up at the end of the day. Best suited to coupls but can accommodate two single people or a small family with our pull out bed.
Great shopping, good restaurants, cafes, and sight seeing at your doorstep. Beaches near by.
The building dates from the 18th century and its exterior is colonial in style. Hence it is an old building and as such certain things are noticeable. For example sound insulation between apartments is not great. On a positive note this is all reflected in the low prices we offer to guests.
Although the building is older, the apartment as a whole is in good working order. As a family run building, we have made our focus to offer comfortable beds, good shower and in keep every thing very clean. Put simply, you get a clean, workable little base in the centre of Gibraltar at a price you can be happy with.
Please note the following information:
There is a flight of stairs to walk to get to this apartment and no lift (approximately 20 steps in total)
This apartment is not recommended for light sleepers or if you are after a quiet stay, due to the proximity of the busy street below.
Please also note: although we offer from as little as one night stays, the nightly rate (£68 per night), which applies to bookings under one week, is considerably higher than our best rates advertised. This due to potential loss of bookings from breaking up a week. So the best rates are applied to bookings of one week or more. However if you enquire book between 5-6 nights, we will apply 10% discount to your quote.
