We were initially thinking that we would be too far out from the old town but with the metro it was so easy to get to the whole of the city. We bought the 3 day passes which cost about £17 each but this allowed us free access to the metro, trams, buses and the vernicular railways. We made use of them all. The apartment itself was more than adequate and quite spacious but it was the balcony and sunken garden which was our deciding factor.The apartment was clean but the cooking area was small and lacked a dishwasher although there was space for one next to the sink. On the plus side ,eating out was inexpensive and much cheaper than the UK. We opted to use a taxi from the airport and going to the apartment cost just over 20 euros but the taxi to return, which Rita arranged, cost less than 9 euros. Rita is a lovely person and was most helpful and attentive to our needs throughout. Yes we would recommend its use to both family and friends.
