Why Marta Ro chose Centro

It has been a pleasure to have you with US and we do Hope yo see you very soon again!!!
Very good location
We stayed at this apartment last year for the first time. The location is brilliant for bars and restaurants. There have been some upgrades on the property. Windows have been repaired which keeps the noise down. The apartment was spotless when we arrived with all the amenities you'd need. Very comfortable. This is not the apartment for visitors who don't like noise - traffic and general street noise - but this doesn't bother us. Marta & David are very helpful and quick to provide anything you need. Cannot praise this apartment enough. Love it.
Super noisy and old
Our stay was very dissapointing. Photos are wau better than reality. Double bedroom has windows to the street and all the windows are so old that it is so noisy as sleeping outside. Other bedroom, kitchen and bathroom have windows to some trashy place. Also, there was only one wine glass, just some plates. Frying panes are too old to use it anymore. Furthermore, towels were were old and seemed dirty.
Only one good thing is the place, because everything is near by foot. The host was nice, but finally, he did not pick up the phone, so we just left keys.
The apartament is right in the city center, so its not a house in the countryside.
The interior windows overlook inside patios, typical in Spain, and they belong to the building, not to my property.
The property pictures show exactly how the apartament looks like, so please be fair.
Kitchen, bathroom, floors are brand new.
You cant expect to have the views and services of a 5 star hotel as the price you paid for 4 people is really good value and you know It.
Regarding the last day, we both sent you a message about what to do with the Keys.
Have to be fair, and sorry but your review isn't fair at all.
A quirky and comfortable apartment in a great location
David gave us a friendly welcome and introduction to the apartment. He also stayed in helpful contact throughout our stay. It was very clean, quirky and had all the facilities we needed for our 4 night stay. The location of the apartment is great - very central and a short distance from the marina, beach and centre of the town. We expected Alicante to be noisy at night, especially at the weekend, and we were right - earplugs are definitely useful!! We like Alicante but found it to be a bit more polluted than before, which was a bit disappointing. However there's lots to see and do, and well worth a visit.
The owners couldn't meet us when we arrived and sent a friend to hand over the keys, which was fine. He took us through all the things we needed to know. The apartment was absolutely spotlessly clean. It had all we needed. The kettle wasn't working and was replaced immediately by the owners. We asked for extra sheets as we used both bedrooms - the were delivered that day by the owners. It's fair to say the owners don't bother you, but do whatever is needed to make your stay work. The apartment could do with a bit of improving - the hallway/entrance is a bit run down and the windows in the apartment have seen better days. Everything else was fine - living room, kitchen, bedrooms, toilet and shower all good. We've been to Alicante before and knew what to expect. The location is brilliant - near the beach, shops and a range of bars, cafes and restaurants. Alicante is noisy and Friday/Saturday nights are a nightmare. We knew this and took earplugs! If noise is a problem then this apartment is not for you! Otherwise a really enjoyable stay. Thank you to Marta.
Basic but clean apartment close to the cafes and restaurants and a 10 - 15 min walk to the beach
The apartment is in an old Alicante block with all its charms and quirky layout. The interior was basic but clean and had everything you'd want for short stay. Only downside is no real outside space to enjoy a coffee and croissant however it's only a minute away from many cafes, bars and restaurants. The beach is also a short 10 - 15 minute walk away. The apartment is easy to get to with 20 min C6 bus from the airport dropping you 5 mins away. The tram is also in easy reach if you want to go further afield. Special mention also goes to David who let us into the apartment and gave us a run down of the local area. He was also very flexible with the check out time allowing us to enjoy our last day prior to catching a later flight. All in all a very enjoyable stay.
