The apartment actually exceeded our expectations having had a new kitchen and bathroom fitted and a new sofa. A coffee filter machine and hair dryer were provided as well as a fridge freezer, microwave and full size oven - hard to find in self catering accommodation!
The local contacts are really friendly and helpful though a knowledge of Spanish is very useful in making all the appropriate arrangements etc.
The location is fairly quiet at night and has great views of the old town from the street facing windows. The flat is literally about 2-3 minutes from the harbour and beach. Heading in the other direction it is about 5 minutes walk to the Cathedral, museums, Ramblas, plus the hundreds of tiny restaurants and bars in the pretty Old Town.
Also worth mentioning is that the Airport bus C-6 which costs just 2.60 euros, stops just around the corner.
We would definitely return - Alicante also exceeded our expectations - it is charming, compact but with plenty to do and see and when we went in early April, fairly quiet and un-touristy . Highly recommended!
