Large, light and beautiful, character flat in fantastic location in Old Town

  • 4 of 5

Superb large 1 bed flat, really comfy double bed, plenty wardrobe space and nicely furnished. Feels homely. Fabulous original mosaic floors, high ceilings, good kitchen, & bathroom with decent shower, large dining room/hall/2nd bedroom plus 2nd glass dining table in large comfy lounge with two balconies just big enough to sit on tho no sun. On first floor with lift so easily accessible. In centre of Old Town so surrounded by amazing places to eat and drink. Highly recommend Sale & Pepe on right corner (fab Italian reasonably priced). Avoid Thai opposite - dreadful food and service. You are spoilt for choice. Owner and housekeeper really helpful and easily contactable. Sadly we couldn't access sunny roof terrace as the lock had bust but look forward to using that next time! Thank you so much - we had a brilliant time and a much needed rest. Weather superb!

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!
