Very nice apartment in very good location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was really comfortable, it had plenty of room for five people. Owner and his agent were very helpful. The apartment wasn't very steady, but it had everything we needed. Wifi wasn't quick, but it worked. The location was excellent! Rambla and KFC ( :) ) just couple of steps from the door. Playa de Postiquet in 5 minutes walk.

The view isn't more than the house next to. We didn't mind the view, because we wanted to watch the view outdoors, not from the window!

We would recommend the property and would come other time too!

Lovely spacious apartment. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely spacious apartment. It has a large spacious sitting room with a small balcony where you can sit and watch the world go by. There is a couch which can be turned into a bed. The kitchen has everything you need - the washing machine is great as I had travelleled with hand luggage. There is a seperate dining/sleeping area which can be used as a sleeping area as there are pull out beds here. The main bedroom is at the back. Even though the apartment is in the town centre -the apartment is quiet and I never heard any street noise. The bathroom has a good shower. The apartment has everything you need for a holiday in Alicante. The location is excellent-as you are in the town. When you come out of the apartment -turn left into an area that has lovely restaurants. These restaurants were top class with something to suit every one' s budget. There is also the church square area that has a great buzz at night time. The cocktails here were 3- 5 Euro which my daughter especially enjoyed. You are only 5 mins. to a beautiful beach. It is in the town so it is very convenient for shopping. There is El Cortes Ingles ,Zara,Mango & Stradivarius. There are great shoe shops and privately owned shops to shop in.

Alicante during Holy Week!

  • 5 of 5

I went to Alicante to visit my daughter who is studying abroad at the University there. I wanted to stay somewhere unique, and with the feel of a Spanish home. John's apartment was all that and more! The location and El Barrio is perfect. Close to shops, restaurants, cafés and just a couple blocks from the beach and the Explanada! And holy week was in full swing so processions many times would go right under the balcony. Absolutely amazing! The apartment was very comfortable with all the amenities you could want. I would stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat. Thank you John for your hospitality!

We enjoyed the roof terasse in February, which was great. The apartment was great and well equipped but a litte cold and dark at that of the year.

Beautiful apartment on top location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located on a top location in the historical center of Alicante. On a 5 minutes walk from the beach and the harbour.

We followed a Spanish course at Enforex that is located on the boulevard and also a 5 minutes walk.

For Dutchies the weather in November was stunning: 25 degrees!

We liked the beach, the boulevards, the shops, the restautants and the old trees. We bought skeelers and used them every day on the boulevards and at the end of the harbour.

We brought our own car. Parking near the apartment is not possible. Parking near the beach is not very expensive but you have to refill it a couple of times daily. So we parked our car in the neigbourhood of calle maestro Marqúes. A 15 minutes walk but free parking.

We liked the castillo Santa Barbara. A nice walk trough the park and back over the wall.

When you pickup the keys at the keyadress, keep in mind this is an office that is closed between 14-17 hrs.
