The apartment was right in the heart of Albacin so central to all the places we wanted to visit. Great value for money, gorgeous 2 bedrooms & lovely private terrace for relaxing with a glass of wine. Owner met us when we arrived & was very helpful & friendly, he gave us loads of tips for Granada. Would only stay here next time.
Very helpful owner - though his English is very basic, he perfectly manages - with the help of smiles, jestures and also modern technologies using iphone and google )) The place is located in Albaicin area, which is very nice and traditional Andalusian style, with 20 min walking distance to Alhambra and same to the city centre. Rooms are clean and well equipped, nothing really to complain! The parking lot is close by (150 m walk max)
If open the windows - might be rather noisy at late evening and night from the closeby outlets
The owner Francis is extremely helpful and friendly. It was easy to find and right in the heart of the old city. Perfect
Thanks for lovely stay in Granada, a warm welcome and fantastic location right in the beautiful windy streets, with greatcafes and restaurants in a few minutes walk, and city centre just down the hill. We walked to the Alhambra and enjoyed the many catmfes for breaks from the heat. Facilities great for families with a kitchen and wifi.
Everything,the location was good, the apartment had everything we needed. The owner was most helpful on our arrival, and very obliging. We would definitely stay there again.
Nothing to dislike.
fully equipped kitchen ware, good bathroom ware and air-conditioning
Great location - you can go everywhere on foot. A walk to the Cathedral takes no more than 15 minutes. The apartment is excellent - clean, with all the facilities you need during your stay, the beds are extremely comfy. The owner is especially deserving of credit - he was more than helpful and extremely friendly.
Great location out of the main tourist area. Francis was very helpful when he met us at the apartment, helped us park the car, and had someone available to translate the apartment information and tourist info.
First night was a Saturday night and the bar next door and traffic was a bit noisy - however next night was much quieter.
The owner went out of his way to help. The flat was very clean and the terrace was fantastic.
When we arrived the apartment we booked was not available because of a problem with the water heater in the bathroom. The owner did gives us suitable alternate accomodation nearby.
The area, the owner(very helpful),the city, very nice apt. Lots of eating choices near by, but also shops, market and bakery if you want to do your own cooking. If you like to walk and discover something new around each corner this is the place for you.
That a lot of locals did not pick up after their dogs. The internet signal was sometimes to weak to use, but go out and see something instead.
The apartments are very convenient for exploring the Albaicin quarter and there are a number of restaurants and shops very close by. The price is very reasonable.
In the apartment we stayed in there was nowhere to sit outside to enjoy the view or an evening drink. other apartments did have this facility.
The location was great to explore the area , the owner was helpful and very pleasant, and the accommodation was clean and nice , enjoyed our experience of being there.
Parking was a little problem but you would expect that being in the old town.
The owner/manager was very helpful and came immediately when we called telling him we had arrived. He and his son gave us good recommendations on places to eat and how to get around the city. The accommodation was clean and had everything you need for self catering.
Situated in a small square, it was difficult to find using our GPS because of narrow streets and buildings which blocked the satellite signals. I'd make sure I had a detailed street map next time.
We enjoyed staying in the "attic" apartment. Owner let is in early and had nearby secure parking for the bike 10 euros a night. Remember to contact him before arrival as the door to the apartments is locked at all times. He stays nearby.
Restaurants in vicinity are not all customer-focused, typical of tourist areas.
The apartment is well maintained. Only disadvantage, there is no lift. Very comfortable beds.
Wi-fi is very poor. Pillow is too soft.
Excellent location (as long as you don't mind climbing the hill!), friendly owner, great base to explore the city. Apartment was well equipped.
The apartment we rented was slightly noisy at times because of the nearby cafes in the square- this didn't bother us overly but worth bearing in mind if you want to go to bed early.
Location, decor, helpful staff, washing machine
Confusion with checking in as we did not have a telephone, more than 1 chair on terrace and seating in patio area would be a nice addition.
A beautifully designed traditional house...group of apartments...with an Andaluz style shared patio, shady and peaceful. This was a perfect setting from which to explore the charms of the Albaicín and the majestic magnificence of La Alhambra. Our host, Francis was charming and extremely helpful. We will return!! Muchisimas gracias.
At the price it is difficult to find fault. Good value, good location, clean and comfortable.
Our room had no view.
Welcoming & friendly, v clean, good location in the albaicin not far from mirador san Nicolas. Good small supermarket on the doorstep for basics, lively local square with a small market and good cares. Not overly touristy: best to speak some Spanish. Hilly cobbled streets to town/frequent buses: 10 mins on foot/bus. Car not appropriate, as streets v narrow, few open to traffic
Steep walk through cobbled lanes back to the apartment was tiring, especially when hot. Local minibus home well worth 1.20 euro fare!
The people were really friendly and helpful, providing us with all the things we needed for our stay and happy to give local advice if we needed it. The flat was really comfortable and clean. It's location was great for seeing the views across Granada and was a really peaceful spot. All the grocery shopping you need is about a minute walk from the apartment, which is great. The car parking space was amazing for us because we took many day trips out of the city and having the car parked close by in a secure underground parking place couldn't have been better.
Everything was just perfect, and Mr. Francisco is so much helpful about anyhting you may need.
The apartment was in the Albaycin area of Granada - a bus ride from the centre of town and two buses to the Alhambra. Even though he spoke no English, the owner couldn't have been more helpful, using Google Translate to help with any problems we had. The apartment was compact but perfectly adequate for our needs.
Our host, Francis, was very friendly, patient and helpful on arrival. The appartment was very clean and provided basic essentials for our stay. The location is ideal for the Alhambra complex although a little hilly but bus routes back to the Hotel after a long day sightseeing around the city were easy to find and inexpensive. Free Flamenco dancing display in the nearest restautant. Local shop and chemist are easy to find..
Be careful approaching from the north east by satnav. We were lucky not to damage our hire car through extremely narrow cobbled streets. Check the route before arrival. Although we had been provided directions we thought the satnav would be reliable....ooooops !
Very sympathic and helpfull owner. Perfect localization.
