Firstly, many thanks to Isabel for all of her responsive emails prior to our stay in Zaragoza and for her kindness and thoughtfulness throughout our stay! This was a surprise break away for my partner's birthday. I had booked the Hotel Sauce based upon reviews that I had read, however when we arrived we were upgraded to the Apartamentos Sabinas ( we were staying for 5 nights) situated just around the corner to the Hotel. On entering the apartment we were very pleased we were staying there. When the electronic blinds were opened we were treated to a spectacular view of the Basilica, from both the lounge area and the bedroom. The bed linen was clean and crisp, beautifully attended to each day. The bathroom had a very good shower area and was well tiled and presented. There is a sofa in the lounge with a table and couple of chairs and plenty of space if needed. The kitchen is a kitchen! not just a hob in the corner but separated completely by opaque tinted glass with all kitchen appliances so should you need to do any washing your needs are catered for in every respect (However, we failed to find a kettle but that was no problem as I'm sure had we mentioned it this would have been resolved). The large windows introduced a great deal of light throughout, which gave an additional feeling of spaciousness. The surrounding area is prime for everyone's needs in Zaragoza. Right in the hub of the historic area, the tourist information centre can be seen from the apartment window so there is no one to blame for not getting all the additional information one may require other than yourself!! The bars and restaurants are the best in this area....we enjoyed the food, fun, hospitilality and kindness of many places as we walked and wandered around each day. There was an awful lot of work taking place in the main streets and squares as they prepare for the new tram system, but this was further down from us and we were not affected by any disruptions. About a 15 minute walk from where the airport bus drops you off, we lost our bearings a couple of times... but that's the fun of being away and somewhere different, for those that may moan about that, there are plenty of taxis at the airport terminal, but we always find it an interesting starting point to refer to the local map (which you can pick up from the tourist information office on arrival at the airport).There are a couple of indoor markets selling local produce, the main one being just off the square near the apartments. We never ventured around the area the other side of the river as we found plenty of places and museums to explore on the side were staying. Zaragoza is a very interesting and friendly place to visit. Isabel and her team excel themselves in all that they do. We had a wonderful stay there...and we know that began with the wow factor of being offered the sabinas apartment with such wonderful views and kind and thoughtful hosting of Isabel and her team. We walked many miles whils't we were there and saw an awful lot of alternative accomodation which we didn't feel matched up to where we were staying. Would we go back.... you bet we would!!! Many Thanks from Angela and Nick
