About the property

One bedroom apartment with air conditioning and private terraces

The Penthouse is reached by a lift from the large airy marble entrance hallway. The building was at one time a large Merchant house which was recently renovated to provide luxury apartments. From the lift there is a small terrace which provides access to the front door of the apartment. The hall gives access to the lounge, dining room and well fitted new kitchen plus the bathroom and bedroom. The apartment is spacious and well furnished with a marble floor throughout and fitted wardrobes. All the fixtures and furniture are new and every consideration has been given to your comfort. French doors lead from the lounge to the first terrace with views over the skyline of Cadiz. and there is a Moroccan style table and chairs for dining al fresco. A spiral staircase leads to the second large terrace with 360 degree views of Cadiz and the Cathedral plus sunbeds and a sunshade. The Penthouse was completely fitted out and furnished only last year so is in pristine condition throughout. Please note Carnaval week - 22.2.17 until 5.3.17 is 620 euros.

Superb central apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is of great quality, it has full air conditioning & a really good kitchen. The terrace looks to one side over the Cathedral & the other out to the port. It is right in the middle of old Cadiz city with its maze of small streets and restaurants Only 200 yards to walk to the Cathedral square or the Town Hall square where Derek met us from the station (a 5 minute walk). We tried the El Aljibe restaurant in Calle Plocia which was good for both tapas & full meals at a very reasonable cost. The Sopranis however well rated on Tripadvisor was a let down.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to write this review and giving the apartment four stars. We take great care to maintain the high standards offered to guests in this apartment. The full aircon, even available in the bathroom and kitchen, is a hit with our many returning guests and as you say, the option of two well positioned terraces means you can always find a suitable place to sit. The apartment´s location is ideal for all the places of interest in Cadiz, yet it sits in a quite residential neighbourhood surrounded by bars and restaurants. We have had many excellent comments this year about El Aljibe and sadly a few not so excellent ones about Sopranis. However, the one thing you can be assured is that we will continue to update and repair as and when necessary to offer our guests the best accommodation at what we feel is a bargain price.

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Finding our way to the apartment was a bit of an adventure since we did not have a map of the city and our GPS just sent us in circles. It is hard to meet someone at an appointed spot when you have no idea of where that spot is. But it was worth the bother. The apartment was quite attractive, a 4th floor penthouse with a large private deck for eating and an even higher deck with lounge chairs and a sun shade. The attractive black and white kitchen was fairly well-equipped. The beds were comfy with soft pillows. The white, brown and grey colors in the living room and dining room were very nice. Despite being in the heart of the city close to Juan de Dios plaza and the cathedral, the apartment was quiet with roll down shutters that made it even more quiet. There were many good restaurants close by. We enjoyed El Aljibe, Quilla, Sarderia, and especially Sopranis. No Wi-Fi and not so clean dishes were minor problems. We would recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive and complimentary review. This apartment sits in the heart of the old town and even the locals have trouble navigating sometimes so please do not feel you failed in not finding the apartment on your first attempt. The medieval streets can be quite a challenge but also an adventure. I really appreciate you commenting on how well appointed and equipped the apartment is and also on how cool it remains even without the aircon switched on. The local restaurants are a job and we are completely spoiled in this part of Cadiz for both choice and quality. I doubt a street exists around the apartment which does not offer a selection of restaurants and bars all offering local produce and of course at local prices. We do not advertise the apartment with WIFI so I am sorry if that was a misunderstanding and you expected it to be installed. However, the whole of Cadiz is a FREE WIFI zone so you can set up the laptop in any of the public areas and go on line plus the majority of bars offer a FREE service also. I will ask housekeeping to check those dishes.

Excellent apartment and service

  • 5 of 5

Booked this apartment through cadizcasa and have to say it lived up to all our expectations. The booking process and pre arrival correspondence with Derek (cadizcasa) went smoothly. Arrived via train and the apartment is no more than 10 minutes walk from the station and we arranged to meet Derek in the main square - no problems and he took us to the apartment. This is located on the top floor of a converted merchants house (I think) and is exactly as shown in the advertisement. Very comfortable, spacious, good air con and great views from the sun terraces. It is located right in the heart of the old town, but very quiet, and ideally located for bars and restaurants. We loved Cadiz, very reasonably priced bars and tapas, a bit of culture if you want it and great beaches. We used the local bus (very easy to use) along the seafront and jumped out where the beach gets a bit quieter. I would recommend Cadiz and this apartment wholeheartedly.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to post this nice review. We work hard at Cadizcasa to give our clients the very best rental properties available on the Costa de la Luz from Lebrija to Vejer de la Frontera and this apartment is certainly a little gem. It´s location right in the heart of the medieval area of Cadiz City makes it ideal for catching a bus/train or just wandering around the abundant historical sites. The streets are quiet but full of life and as you rightly say, you are only a few metres walk from bars and restaurants all of which offer good fresh local produce at low prices. We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us and I hope we can welcome you to Cadiz again in the future.

In die Jahre gekommen

  • 4 of 5

Lage und Ausstattung der Wohnung sind wirklich sehr gut. Aber bei "Luxus" erwarteten wir z.B. ein breiteres Bett als 1,35 m mit mehr als einer Decke für 2, saubere Stuhlhussen und mindestens 2 zueinander passende Weingläser. Von den Terrassen mit der Super-Aussicht blättert die Farbe großflächig ab, sie benötigen dringend seit mindestens 1 Jahr einen neuen Anstrich, wie wir aus dem Gästebuch erfuhren. Aus den Fenstern hat man leider keinen Ausblick, da sie aus Milchglas sind. Darüber hinaus bot die vermittelnde Agentur leider einen armseligen, chaotischen Service.

Traumaussicht garantiert

  • 5 of 5

Absolute Traumwohnung mit Traumaussicht! Die Wohnung übertraf voll unsere Erwartungen. Vor allem die zwei großzügigen Terrassen mit Sicht über die Dächer von Cadiz sowie auf die neue bombastische Brücke hauten uns schier um. Die Wohnung ist außerordentlich gut ausgestattet und top sauber, es fehlte an nichts. Zentral gelegen, aber doch ruhig. Ideal zum Entdecken der Stadt Cadiz, aber auch zum Entspannen auf einer der Sonnenterrassen. Wir nahmen sämtliche Mahlzeiten immer draußen ein und bestaunten den Sonnenauf- und untergang! Absolut empfehlenswert!

Situated in the 'Casco Antiguo' or the Old Town of Cadiz City the Penthouse is ideally located for access to all the sites and transport connections. The railway station lies only 5 minutes walk away, as do the bus station and the Port of Cadiz. We are located between the oldest plaza in Cadiz, Plaza San Juan de Dios, home to the Townhall and Cathedral Square, with the beautiful Cathedral of Cadiz. Both plazas offer an excellent selection of tapas bars, restaurants and cafe´s with outdoor seating and of course great views. Local shops, banks, indoor market hall and supermarkets also abound and are all within a couple of minute´s walk from the apartment. Our property is situated in a street which was home to the famous flamenco guitar maker Franciso Bonichi nicknamed Don Poncho and the area still houses many artesan workshops for painters, potters and furniture makers especially within the Barrio Populo which is only a minute´s walk. This ancient and very famous Barrio also offers a good selection of bars, restaurants and cafe´s. Due to the layout of the Old Town of Cadiz you are never far from anything and the beaches are also within easy walking distance as is the promenade which goes on for several kilometers and offers excellent fish restaurants, beach bars and evening entertainment. The history of Cadiz is second to none. It is the oldest inhabited capital of Europe and the Roman remains and medieval buildings have been lovingly preserved by the nation. You can spend days just wandering from the narrow cobbled streets to the open flower filled plazas taking the odd fino or coffee along the way. There is plenty to see, including the Roman Theatre, the Royal Prison, the sea fortresses of Santa Catalina and La Caleta and the numerous towers, museums and exhibitions which flourish in the City. However, if you fancy a day out of Cadiz, the train or bus service is excellent and we recommend a visit to Jerez de la Frontera, famous for its horses and sherry. It is only 30 minutes on the train and the Bodega (wine cellar) tours are good as is the Royal School of Equestrian Arts who offer tours and shows. Alternatively, Seville is also well worth a visit with its stunning Cathedral, Giralda and ancient Jewish Quarter. The remainder of the Costa de la Luz is also easily accessible and offers some 74 blue flag beaches so if you like sand and sun there is plenty of choice either in the City or along the coast. Dining out in Cadiz can be as informal or formal as you choose. There are numerous old established family restaurants offering local fresh produce cooked to perfection or there are the new restaurants offering traditional dishes but with a modern twist in very elegant surroundings. The other alternative is to have a tapas bar crawl choosing your little plates of food as you go and a few fino´s (local sherries) to accompany them. Cadiz is a friendly City and the locals welcome visitors. There is an excellent Tourist Information Centre on Plaza San Juan de Dios if you need maps or leafets and there are guided tours of the city and tour buses if you prefer organised touring.
