About this listing
Rooms for rent on the Plaza de la Merced. Excellent location in the heart of the city with beach and culture on your doorstep. Historic building overlooking the square; a great place to relax and take in the sun.
The apartment is located in the middle of square, where you find loads of bars and cafes and a great atmosphere. The apartment holds six separate bedrooms, has a lounge, kitchen and a bathroom which are shared with the people that are staying there.
Basically everything in the common areas you can see you can use. There is a TV in the living room; the kitchen holds a washing machine, fridge and dishwasher. Food in the kitchen and in the fridge that is on the shared shelves you are free to use, as well as for shampoo/shower gel and general toiletries you find in the bathroom. Sheets and towels are of course also provided.
Interaction with guests
Guests that stay in my apartment get discounts in certain bars and as well have access to pub crawls and free walking tours. Anything else you would like to know anything about the city I’d be more than happy to help out. I also provide maps that you can take with you. If you are interested I can set you up with private Spanish classes as well as flamenco guitar lessons.
The apartment is close to all points of interest in the city like the Alcazaba, the Roman Theatre, the Cathedral as well as most museums. The beach is reachable in 10 minutes by foot. There are many bars, restaurants and cafés here on the square and there is a supermarket just around the corner which is open from 9am till 9pm (not closed for siesta). You can also find a mini market just off the square for fresh fruit and vegs.
To get here from the airport it's probably cheapest to get the A1 bus that stops right outside the airport. This will bring you to the last stop which is the Plaza de Torrijos and from there you can walk through the tunnel to the Plaza de la Merced.
If you come by bus you can get the number 1 or C1 from the main bus station to the Plaza de la Merced.
Other things to note
Parking is free on the street, but being in the city centre it might be busy. The closest parking lots are near the tunnel (Alcazaba), and in Calle Frailes. These can range between 20 and 25 euro a day depending on the date.
