The apartment is very central and great for visiting the port and other attractions on foot or via metro. But be warned it's in the very centre of a busy market so noisy in the mornings and there is lots of rubbish around. we were there during a refuse collection strike which made this worse. In the evenings it's not the best place to walk about alone and therefore caution single female travellers. the apartment itself was clean and as advertised in the pictures. however the towels and bedding provided were old and shabby. these stunk of cigarette smoke. the shower floods the bathroom with every use. the door to the apartment is secure but the main door to the street doesn't lock. considering the neighbourhood it is in I feel this is a big problem. if you don't mind the above and feel comfortable in the slightly rougher areas of big cities then this apartment is located in a vibrant interesting area and is good value. but you get what you pay for!
