It's location in the old town close to excellent bars and restaurants could not be better. Sitting on the balcony watching the ships pass by was a great way to enjoy the sun. We will be back!

We found the apartment spacious and very good value - at that price it is not going to be perfect. No idea why somebody should be upset - were the expecting a five-star hotel! Get real!

We found the apartment to be clean, spacious and in a good location for the Old Town. Everything was as expected and all our needs were met. We also booked the transfer service from and to the airport which operated like clockwork. We would gladly stay at this apartment again.
