The apartment is on the fifth(5th) floor of a beautiful hundred-year-old building, but unfortunately there is not lift or elevator! (comfortable stairs but not suitable for elderly and/or handicapped people). The experience worth it you will be in the most central place of the city. The flat has 135m2 newly renovated.
Interaction with Guests
The flat is shared with me (Fidel, architect, freelance, and university teacher), my temporal flatmate (Maria, Psysician) and perhaps with another airbnb guests. This means shared kitchen and bathroom. Breakfast is not provided, but you are welcome to cook it in the kitchen which is available between 8.00am to 11.00am.
Tea and coffee are provided in the morning. Toast, microwave and small space in the refrigerator are available for guests at any time,but the stove never is available for guests-sorry!!! and of course the necessary stuff to eat. Please don’t forget to wash it. Remember that I live here, and I cook every day and I love to maintain the space ordered and clean.
