Convienent, but hot in back rooms
Travelled with elderly parents one with osteoporotic knee and a walking 1 year old. We had a car.
PROS: probably everything you need within a few steps from the apartment: Stores, restaurants, money exchange (BBVA ATMs open on weekends), groceries, public Internet place with printer (on Francisco Seville street), great ice cream place across street , bull fighting ring, metro. Very clean. No stairs, as this place is a flat on top floor, so great for toddlers. Small elevator for ~3 people and their luggage. Nicely decorated! Spacious for Europe standards. Safe area. Nice balcony to dry your clothes. Has washing machine for clothes and dishes. Had baby cot. One electric plug in master is American. Has a wii for kids, although I don't remember seeing actual games for it. Has wifi.
CONS: we stayed in end of June , and air conditioning only available for living room and master bedroom, so bunk bed room and other room where my parents slept =very HOT despite the fans they gave us. Kitchen not really stocked with condiments. Parking is expensive, at least 24 euros a day, about 150 yards away. No printer to print your tour vouchers. Far from royal palace, temple Debod (on other side of town), but we drove, maybe easier if metro? No baby high chair for dining.
Overall, great place! Would have gotten 5 stars if air conditioning cooled everywhere.
