It's a nice and clean place, which makes it a perfect place to spend the night before/after going to Africa or to use as a base for visiting places in Andalucia, as Algeciras is the main transport hub for onwards travel in the area.

The bedroom is of a good size but small with built in wardrobes. You will have your own private toilet/small shower and access to a big shower in my bathroom.

Everything is so close by being on one of the main streets in the centre but also located just inside the old part of town in a traditional Spanish style building. The shops are on the other two parallel main streets and the restaurants are at the other end of my street, which excludes the worst noise you can get from city centres.

Great host, Very fast communication and helped out even tho I booked the wrong day. House was clean and tidy. Would Deffinatly stay here again.
Helle was a brilliant host and made us feel really welcome. As we were looking at relocating to Gibraltar, she very kindly spent an evening with us sharing her wisdom on the area. Location was fantastic, right in the centre and easy to find thanks to the comprehensive directions. Lots of free parking on the seafront nearby, and some brilliant tapas/breakfast places around the corner. The room was basic but very comfortable. The separate bathroom was very useful but not really suitable for showering so we used the big shower in Helle's bathroom. She provided us with towels and toiletries which saved on the luggage. Thanks for a fantastic stay!
Helle was absolutely fantastic! We were only with her for one full day but she came out for drinks in the evening and gave us a huge amount of really useful advice about how to get to Gibraltar and what to do in Morocco and where to go. I couldn't recommend her more if you're going on to Morocco or Gibraltar.
Helle was a wonderful host! She was willing to wake up early to let us in (we arrived on an early overnight bus), and her apartment was wonderfully clean and beautiful. Lots of open air space (small balcony on the rented room, larger balcony off the living room). Great location too - pretty much everything was an easy walk away, including the bus into Gibraltar. Helle also provided helpful maps and suggestions about the area.
Would definitely stay with Helle again, and definitely recommend you do too! :)
Helle was excellent. Our stay was simple and easy, once we found it (we had trouble connecting via airbnb email for some reason). She was very gracious in even walking us to the port and helping us buy our ferry tickets. So kind and hospitable! Best wishes to you, Helle!
Great host. Helle was very helpful from the beginning. She sent me bus schedules and maps was very easy to communicate with. The apt is in a good location everything within walking distance.
Helle was great, and very easy to communicate with. The room is precisely as described, just blocks from the center of Algeciras. Thanks!
