We cant' say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and our hosts Antonio and Laura.

No, a taxi can't take you to the door but we are seniors and managed just fine with our luggage and it was so amazing staying in the Albacin area with it's cobblestone alleys and charm.

The apt itself is bright (which was particularly nice since we didn't hit the greatest of weather) and the views of the Alhambra from the living area is nothing short of spectacular even if weather doesn't allow you to fully enjoy the roof top terrace with it's breathtaking view of the Alhambra and surrounding landscape. It is a ships ladder up to the terrace which only added to the charm for us and I managed a tray with drinks and appies on it too ! The unit was well equipped and the bed was comfortable.

Laura's maps were a wonderful help in orienting you to the labyrinth of small streets and alleys. In fact when out we would be asked where we had gotten such a great map.

We very much enjoyed the bottle of wine we were greeted with and both Antonio and Laura were a delight to chat with and to get local information from. Antonio selected an excellent restaurant for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

The location is so perfect to walk to other attractions as well as exploring the one it is in.

We were there a week but would certainly like to go back and there would be no other place we would want to stay other than at Antonio and Laura's.

Thank you both !!!!

Excellent apartment for visiting Granada and the Alhambra

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived Antonio helped to make our experience a good one. He arranged to have a taxi meet us at the airport and take us to the apartment. Once there his wife, Laura, met us and welcomed us with a bottle of wine. She explained everything. They had produced a map of the Albayzin and Laura noted how to get to the Alhambra, location of recommended restaurants, and suggestions of things to see.

The apartment has an amazing view of the Alhambra and of the neighborhood of the Albayzin. It is clean, cozy and comfortable, and close to many places to eat, less than 15 minutes walk in most cases. We walked everywhere, including up the hill to the Alhambra.Their map was required because the Albayzin is a winding maze of narrow streets, alleys, and stairs. We only took a wrong turn once and the map helped us find our way back.

We had a great time in Granada. I wish we had planned a longer stay. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Granada and the Alhambra.

(One thing though. The Albayzin is not car friendly. Some walking is required within its bounds, over uneven paths. Our party liked this but its not for everyone.)

Fantastic Location!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location and view but hazardous to get to and from with luggage unless you are in your teens! It would be invaluable to offer some way of hiring assistance with suitcases. Nice owners, splendid apartment, although the roof-top 'private terrace' lacks comfortable chairs and is only accessible by means of an indoor ladder that precludes carrying drinks or coffee outside. On the other hand, the views of the Alhambra from the living room are breathtaking. The apartment is bright, charming, spacious and wonderfully equipped.

This apartment is wonderful, and Antonio and Laura are excellent hosts! When we weren't wandering the Albaycin or touring the Alhambra (3 times!), we sat on the roof-top terrace staring in awe at the 360-degree views of the city. Thank you also, Laura, for the great map of the area and suggestions for local day trips and restaurants nearby (great Moroccan food just up the hill!) The apartment had plenty of space for 3 people, plus friends staying elsewhere in town who dropped by frequently. The kitchen had everything for coffee and tea and lite cooking; lots of space in the fridge and freezer; the dining room table will seat a crowd; the beds were comfortable; and having 2 bathrooms was a bonus (one is downstairs - great for privacy or a quick stop going out or coming back in.) We loved Granada and will return, and we'd definitely stay here again. Thanks once more for your hospitality, Antonio and Laura!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has the most amazing views of the Alhambra, from the main living area and the rooftop deck. Sitting on the rooftop as the sun set and the lights played on the Alhambra was magical. Staying in the Albaycin was delightful, even though everything was a walk up or down on the small pedestrian streets. The owners gave us directions so we could arrive from a taxi and walk DOWN to their place with our luggage - important and very considerate of the traveler. The apartment was very comfortable and attractive, and, unlike many places that say they have “fast” internet/wifi, this place really does. The owners provide a great map with all of the local amenities and their restaurant recommendations. We highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent Place to stay in Granada

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment with stunning views and in the perfect location. I would recommend staying here. The terrace was a great place to have a few drinks and watch the sunset over the Alhambra. There was a big table which was perfect for eating round and the rooms were all a really good size and very clean. We got a very friendly welcome. The apartment is near bars and restaurants and walking distance from all major attractions. What more can I say!
