Location of this apartment is excellent. Apartment was clean and comfortable. Some rooms a little small but main living space was large enough.
I'm really pleased that you found my apartment clean and comfortable and enjoyed all the benefits of its great location for enjoying the best of this delightful city. My apartment was in fact fully modernized some six years ago from a three bedroom apartment to two bedrooms which opened up much more living space (double the original size), than is usual for a modern 70's central apartment - interestingly it was quite the 'norm' forty years ago to cram in as many bedrooms for the larger families of the times needs.

This apartment was lovely, so relaxing to have extra space to move around and not be 'under each others feet' (as we usually are in a hotel room). My ten yr old loved the british cartoons and disney channel while we loved the privacy of our own bedroom. He said the best part was having his own room and a freezer (the freezer allowed him to have an icecream on the short walk to the tram each day!)
Everything in the apartment worked (- unlike the four star hotel we used last yr). Everthing was clean when we arrived (- again unlike the hotel). The 'neighbours' where all Spanish and very nice when we met outside the lift etc. They were also much quieter in a morning so I had a 'lie in' every day - (unheard of for me usually as I am a light sleeper).
The air con was only used once when we arrived and we all needed to get used to the 30 degree heat (- it was late September and we had just left Englands rain and cold winds! ) After this we left all the windows open all day and all night and this was far better. Being six floors up has the advantage of being very safe re: security.
All in all a great holiday and one we will consider again -we usually go all inclusive in a hotel but this was much more relaxing for all of us, no breakfast time to get up for, no evening meal to get ready for .
Thanks for your kind recommendations - everything is so easy to access from my apartment either by short walks or the cheap easy & efficient modern metro service - to enjoy a lively city centre location and be down at the lovely beach within 15mins. There are not many city's offering such a great combination.
