“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Lovely spacious apartment in a quiet back back street in the City. The apartment is comfortable, warm on cold February nights (-5 when we visited the Alhambra in the morning) and has good kitchen facilities. Paolo is a superb host and the spa is lovely if you like that sort of thing. Would love to go again.

Hotel was in a fantastic location only moments away from the main tapas area, Calle Navas. An easy trip by bus to the amazing Alhambra and stroll to markets and beautiful shops. Staff were friendly and very accommodating, going above and beyond to provide information about the area and assist us with our travels. Our apartment was large and spacious and would have been great for a longer stay. Spa facilities were also relaxing and enjoyable. Only minor notes would be the ceiling fan was noisy, however there was air-conditioning so the problem resolved itself. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartment was easily accessed.

We stayed at Arte Vida Suites & Spa late June 2013 after reading the other trip advisor reviews. This place is perfectly situated to take advantage of the historic downtown. And the shuttle makes access to the Alhambra effortless. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with 1 & 1/2 bath. The unit was clean, cozy an very comfortable for the four of us. But the most memorable part of our Stay was the continued level of genuine service from booking through the length of stay and after. We would recommend this place to everyone.

PS take advantage of the spa!

Apartment was great, very spacious and clean. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area. They all spoke very good English. The apartment was in an ideal location, easily within walking distance of the Alhambra and other attractions. There is a supermarket 5 mins walk away. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights in early August. Were in a 1 bedroom apartment with a living room, kitchen and bath. Since new owner has only had property for little more than 1 year, still in process og upgrading furnishings. Great surprise was a washer/dryer in kitchen that allowed us to take clean clothes back on outr return trip home. Staff even provided laundry detergent! Staff was accommodating and friendly. Really felt you were part of the neighborhood and the city. Down narrow street but within less than 5 minutes easy walking from City Center. Another plus was the very reasonable cost for almost a 650 square apartment.

We really enjoyed staying here - it was cosy and private. The owner/manager speaks excellent English and so he was able to give us great advice about the city. Our one bedroom apartment was equipped with everything we needed - a washing and drying imachine, kitchen, TV and air conditioning. The whole hotel is very quiet and peaceful and we got lots of sleep - unlike many hotels which are centrally located. Many restaurants, shops, attractions and a supermarket are within walking distance. The train station was a 10 minute taxi ride away. The bus up to the Alhambra departs from around the corner. Good value for money.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on our recent trip to Granada, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. This is an apartment style hotel located in a small pedestrian only lane. Our taxi dropped us off a few steps from the entrance so there was not a lot of luggage dragging involved at all.

We were warmly welcomed by Pablo the owner who only took over the business a year ago, and were provided with all the info we needed. We felt immediately at home when we saw our apartment. It was beautifully decorated in the Andalusian style decor, spacious, and had a large fridge, well equipped kitchen to make breakfast etc, and a washing machine/dryer which came in very handy! I had requested a quiet apartment with balcony and got three balconies!! Pablo spoke perfect English and attended to every of our needs with attention and enthusiasm, and nothing was too trouble.

The hotel is only 2 min walk from the popular eating street, and the no. 31 bus which takes you to the Alhambra. Also only 5-7 min walk from the centre of town so everything is literally around the corner. Despite its location, it was quiet and we heard absolutely no noise from the street or other guests during our stay. It felt safe walking around the area at night and Granada was a very tourist-friendly place, with great food and friendly locals.

We really loved our stay at Arte Vida Spa & Suites. It felt like a home away from home, and was our favourite hotel during our trip to Spain and France. And best thing was its bargain price!! I can't recommend it highly enough. For people who don't normally look for apartment style accommodations, I can only say that it was the best value, most comfortable place we've stayed, and you won't know what you are missing out!!

Thanks Pablo for making our stay in Granada such a memorable one!!
