This appartment was the highlight of our trip to Spain. We loved being in the heart of the Albayzin quarter and the views to Alhambra were amazing. Nadia, who let us in was helpful and gave a great recommendation for breakfast ( 4 Gatos) . Don’t stay here if you have difficulty with steps ( the ones up to the terrace are very steep) or don’t enjoy wandering narrow cobbled streets ( leave stilettos behind) but otherwise it’s amazing. Highly recommended!
PS you can get free Tapas in Granada- we had great Tapas and drinks for under 6 Euros each one night!
What a lovely little house! We enjoyed our stay immensely!
It was so much fun to climb to the small terrace and enjoy the wonderful view with a glass of wine!
The house was stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay, and it was so cosy. It was quite cold when we were there, but we were nice and toasty with the aid of some heaters.
We did find the bed quite hard.
It is a challenge to find the place as it is deep in the old part of town. We would have benefitted from some specific directions, rather than google ones. For example, it's much easier to find the place from the Plaza Nuevo than from the cobblestone steps of the Moroccan area that Google took us through. The owner should come up with a complete directions package. "Right at the Madonna in the wall" sort of thing.
If you go, pack light! You have a long way to drag your suitcases and many steps to climb!
There are many steps inside the house as well, so this place would not be for you if your mobility was limited.
We loved our stay here and would stay again in a heartbeat! The area around was so picturesque and it was central to all the sights and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.....including the Alhambra! Although we did take the C-3 bus up to to the top and walked back down!
Nadia was our contact person and she was most helpful and kind.
When we travel we like an authentic apartment with old quirky things about it and a terrace. This place was perfect. The bedroom, kitchen, living room and terrace were all of different levels. The terrace was fantastic. We went all times of the day. Wonderful view of the Alahambra. Nadia was so friendly and helpful.
To start off, we are seasoned travellers who have rented vacation rentals all over the world. We are also fit retirees who walked over 200 Km's on this vacation, the street to the house is very steep with large cobblestones and I was unable to pull my carry on bag up one section. The house is on a few levels which is ok however the steps to the deck are "interesting" being very very narrow. The view is awesome however we left after 2 nights because it was so noisy we could not sleep. The bedroom is on the street side and it felt like people were walking through the bedroom. It is near a park?where there were people walking, talking,shouting etc until 3-4am. Not sure if it was because of a weekend or what. The apartment itself is ok.
Absolutely loved everything about this apartment. Just as described and even better. So much character. Everything you need. The Alhambra view from the terrace of this apartment is unbeatable. Can't wait to return. Maybe not for the elderly if stairs and low bits to knock your head on are an issue but if not go for it!
