How wonderful it was to wake up every morning and look straight across to the Alhambra for seven days. The Alhacena location was fantastic, and the house grew on us the longer we were there. Artur was very helpful in getting us settled and answering our many questions. The house is not for people who have trouble getting around, there is quite a bit of uphill walking to get there. The bathroom is fine, but the photo does not show that the staircase runs through part of the shower area, so you really only have about a 2 foot area to shower in, otherwise you must use the tub. Not fit for a large body. There's plenty of hot water and good pressure. The kitchen was great and had excellent knives and cookware. The clothes washer was out of service, so check before you go. I had to wash out underwear and socks to get through the week. The little rooftop terrace is a challenge to get to, but the views are worth it on a warm day. The bedroom was roomy, had a comfortable, firm bed, and it was extremely quiet and dark at night. There's plenty of room to store your clothing. The living room was bright, cozy, and a great place to read, to dine and to relax and put your feet up. We walked everywhere in Granada, if you are healthy, there's no need to ever take a bus except from the airport. Walk up to Miguel Bajo at night and enjoy a meal at El Aji and Casa Blas. Try Kiki's behind the Mirador for a great lunch. Cunini is superb, just off plaza Bib Rambla on Pescador, for a sit down meal reserve ahead, otherwise enjoying tapas at the bar is a real treat. There are groceries close by and the meat/fish market behind the Cathedral is fabulous. We loved living in old town, just wear flat comfortable shoes with good gripping soles. And watch out for the dog poop.
