We enjoyed a comfortable 2 days there. The apartment has two rooms. The kitchen is in a corner of the main room. All the essential facilities (except a dishwasher) were provided. The cooktop was a portable induction type – worked well for the basic cooling that we did. You have to be organised/tidy because of the small space, but we found it no problem. Dining room was a foldout table against the wall – quite Ok for two people. The lounge sofa was a comfortable place to read or watch TV. The WiFi internet connection worked reliably and well. The bathroom was attached to the bedroom as an ensuite. Like everything else, compact but quite adequate. And like every other part of the apartment, it was spotlessly clean. The location is excellent. Just a 50 metre walk up a pedestrian lane from the main street running along the creek at the base of the Alhambra and through to the main plaza which is an easy 5 minute walk from the apartment. The apartment has a small deck which provides a great view of the Alhambra – perfect place for a relaxing afternoon or late evening tipple. The walk up the hill to the Plaza San Nicholas is about 10-15 minutes. There are many restaurants along the way and at the top. They are a class above most of the mall/downtown places and many offer open balconies with magnificent views of the Alhambra. The owners of the apartment were very helpful. They were at the apartment waiting upon our arrival, spoke reasonable English (more than enough to explain the apartment facilities, town layout and access to the Alhambra), and provided local maps and guides as well as restaurant advice. Special mention to Lola who purchased our Alhambra tickets prior to our arrival (we were unable to do so over the net). Overall, we were completely happy with the apartment. It meet all the needs of our 2 day stay, and enabled us to thoroughly enjoy our stay at Granada.
