It is located in a quiet side street, yet conveniently placed for walking to all the sites and amenities. It is smart, comfortable and equipped with all one needs, including a small supply of essentials so that we didn’t have to head straight to the supermarket to buy the likes of coffee, cooking oil, seasoning etc There was even a bottle of Cava in the fridge: very welcome after our journey! We got the Line A bus from the airport to the city centre and walked to the apartment from there. This worked well. Gary & Ralph met us at the apartment, supplied us with a city map and showed us where we could find what we needed and generally made us feel welcome and our arrival stress-free. Within a few minutes walk from the apartment, there is a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and bars in the pedestrianised centre. Following the recommendation of a previous reviewer, we had dinner at La Luz de Candela, the closest restaurant to the apartment. The food, service and ambience were all superb. Our only regret was that we couldn’t return because the French brothers who own it were going on holiday themselves. We highly recommend this apartment and intend returning next year - this time for two weeks!

                                                                                                      This is a good and spacious apartment in the La Union area, a working neighborhood where you'll hear and speak only Spanish. The new metro is around the corner and the buses are regular and inexpensive, that is if you wish to leave the area. The longer we stayed, the more we preferred just squiffing around the neighbor. It became more fulfilling than rushing into old town to sit with all the other English and Americans. The apartment is less than 10 minutes walk from the bus and train stations. Great news if you wish to take day trips out of town. The apartment is serviced by all the major supermarkets: Aldi, SuperSol, Lidl, Mercado and dozens upon dozens of small markets. There is a regular fish market within three minutes of the apartment. Oh, and a weekly farmer's market. The apartment is on the third floor of a nine story, quiet tower. It is well appointed, exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is in fact the largest apartment we have ever rented in Spain. But the real joy is to be found in the hosts: Katie and Jose. Usually hosts disappear like snow off a ditch after giving you the keys, but Katie and Jose are special, very, very special. I feel safe in saying we've never had such engaging and attentive hosts. Yet, we never felt intruded upon. It was Christmas and Katie had decorated the apartment for us. Lovely touch. And the day before Christmas, she and Jose arrived with a hamper they'd made up just for us. So Sweet. Advice and tips were dispensed within seconds of texting or calling. They anticipated our needs at every turn. It was great knowing they were at the other end of the phone and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. We are already planning a return visit. Urban Spain at its best.
