A full size residential flat, plenty of kit and good reliable free wifi. Please be aware that being above the busiest street for night life there is a lot of noise that comes from the pedestrianised street that the front of the property overlooks.
Without air conditioning you need to leave the windows open at night which means it's very loud from the sheer volume of people sitting at tables in the street below. If you are just a couple it's possible to use the smaller back bedroom which it much quieter as is overlooks a private inner courtyard.
Charming owner with excellent communication and time keeping enabling easy check in and check out. The location is less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest airport bus stop the tram (Mercado subway station) and the main shopping street. You can walk to the old town (the picturesque barrio), beach or harbour/marina in 10 minutes. If you would like to visit an indoor hyper market, shopping mall and cinema complex this is just one stop away by tram to La Goteta Plaza Mar 2. The apartment overlooks a pedestrian only street that is lined with cafes, small bars and restaurants with lots of outdoor seating and is very popular with locals and tourists alike. It is at the heart of Alicante night life, so you must expect to hear noise from people simply out enjoying themselves. This echoes up from the street until 3am most nights and to at least 5am on Friday and Saturday. The only down side to this property is that it has light weight single glazed windows that do not keep out the hubbub from the street. Also, not being air conditioned, you would want to leave the windows open in the warmer months. Tip - we took the owners advice and used the (much) smaller bedroom at the back of the property for a good nights sleep. Tip - the apartment number is 6D if you need to use the street door entry system. The wifi is excellent, reliably offering 9 - 10 meg. Love nightlife = love this apartment.
