This one-bedroom serviced apartment lies on the second floor of an old building (1788 to be precise). Historical features, such as the tiny Juliet balcony, provide the perfect foil for a gorgeous modern interior. The living room's French windows look out over Carrer Bon Success: world class people-watching. The galley kitchen and bathroom are sleek and modern. There's a simple, relaxing double bedroom at the quiet rear of the building.
