Comfortable enough and well located. WiFi in the unit a little spotty.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is fine; best part is it’s walking distance to sights, restaurants and bars in the “casco antiguo“. The owners are friendly, as well!

Charming, full of character in the old city.

  • 4 of 5

If you want a place with total charm & full of character in the inner old city, then this is the place for you. This property is tucked away in the tight alleys of the old city & offers a great terrace with wonderful views of the town & region. The bed was comfortable & the kitchenette has the basics for those who only want to prepare breakfast & lunch. This place is perfect for a family of 3 & if a 4th person doesn't mind sleeping on a futon couch/bed in the living area next to the kitchenette, then it is suitable for 4. We had 3 teenage girls, so having 5 was a bit cramped. Our host was most helpful & very friendly, the place clean. We recommend this historic property.
