'Is it safe to stay in an apartment in this area' - as many do stay in the Albaicin, as I have in a hostal for three nights three years ago, what makes you think it is not?
Age and fitness and whereabouts will play a part and yes there are small city buses.
There have been a few earlier threads so if you add "Albayzin" in the search box above and then if you like change the drop down box from Relevance to Date it will show the most recent threads. One thread in July about Crime could be useful.
Thank you all. It sounds like a wonderful area and we can't wait to visit!
