The apartment has all of the modern conveniences (just watch your... More

Very quiet, clean and comfortable. Owner is available for any questions or concerns. Enjoyed the Pateo room, had coffee every morning in the sun. Parking was in a secure garage a few blocks away for 9 euros. The funicular is around the corner- very convenient. Would stay here again!
