I stayed in the apartment with my two teenagers for 8 days. It was a very nice area of the city. Only houses and very nice and quiet. It was close the the parador hotel and Castillo the Gibralfaro. We walked from the apartment to the old town in 15-20 minutes. It was a nice walk along the Castillo de Gibralfaro with a great view over the city. The apartment was a part of a house and the owner lived in the apartment above. Very nice people, but they did not speak any english. My son speaks spanish so he could speak with them. The apartment was nice with a new bathroom and a kitchen with both oven, micro, toaster and washing machine. 15 min walk to the beach. The price does not include cleaning so we had to clean the apartment and wash towels and bed linen before leaving.
