Although on the plaza, it did feel like we were right in it! Situated by the old city hall (ayuntamiento) and surrounded by many bars and restaurants, you could sit in the living room or lay in bed and feel like you're part of the seemingly non-stop party! In all fairness, it was a 3-day weekend and there was a festival going on that weekend. That must be it.
We were charged 300 Euro per night. We were also asked to give a 200 Euro deposit. However, that same night we ran into the owner with his wife, while we were strolling. She took one look at us and gave us our deposit back on the spot!
There are various ways to rent this apartment. Here's one link: http://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/spain/s1732.htm. I've placed another below.
That being said, the apartment really is charming. It has 3 bedrooms but we only used two. The third is in the attic and is kind of a funky in a hippy sort of way. The main floor had one room with a Queen sized bed and another with bunk beds. I slept in one of the bunk beds and it was very comfortable. The apartment has 6 Juliet balconies which add to the feeling of being in the middle of everything and add to the charm. The bathroom is very large and very modernly updated. The kitchen is a galley and has everything you need.
The real charm of this place is that it's not glamorous and doesn't have a hotel feel. It feels like some place that's lived in on a regular basis; like a relative's place. You plop yourself down on a sofa and feel at home. Then you go to onto one of the many little balconies and feel like you're eavesdropping on the town.
Tourism plays a major role in Laredo`s economy. For this reason, the choice for accomodation is large. Some of the best options are the Hotel El Ancla, if you prefer to stay close to the beach, or the Hotel Miramar, up in the hills, if you want to enjoy a spectacular view of the bay.
