Interaction with Guests

I will be in the apartment during the Check In and Check Out. I leave my phone open for any doubts and problems you may have during your stay. I also make good suggestions of what to do and where to shop in the Nearby. Please let me know your estimate check in or out time before making the reservation and take into consideration that when someone enters/exits the apartment on the same day you do exit/enter check in or outs could have a limit of 10 am for check outs and 12 midday for check ins. For that reason i advice you book the hole day for half the price of a day, just in case someone else books on the same day you leave or enter. You can always leave your bags in the building free of charge. I also offer transfer service for a moderate price.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located Downtown, surrounded by pedestrian streets which make the neighborhood a more calm place than what it used to be. That brings the best of both worlds because you get the calm of the surroundings, free of cars, and the benefits of the city, with theaters, the most important shopping street, shoppings, good restaurants, best means of transport and the posibility to get to know all the tourist attractions with less effort
