“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

We had a beautiful apartment with all the amenities, including stove, microwave, washer/dryer, wifi, TV. Car park is nearby, though a bit narrow (as is most places in Spain). The staffs are friendly and helpful.

The apartment is on a small street, pedestrian only, so it was not noisy. It has a great location within easy walk to many of the sights, and short walk to the bus stop for the Alhambra.

My only complain would be the small shower area, though the bathroom itself is a decent size. With the shower curtain so close to the showerhead/faucet, the water tends to splash out a bit on the floor. The space is just about enough to stand in.

Other than that, a perfect stay and highly recommended.

Beautiful apartment set in an old building sympathetically restored. The rooms are in a horseshoe shape that wraps around the central courtyard. Clean, comfortable, well equipped, with own heating controls. The staff are very nice and keen for you to enjoy your stay. Granada is a great bustling city and these apartments are perfect to come home to after a bust day. Being able to make a hot drink/snack was very useful.

This tiny hotel of 7 apartment-suites is on a quiet alley near the center of Granada. We were walking distance to all the major tourist sites. We had two suites for the five of us, each with a bedroom, living room, and kitchen. It was a comfortable place to come back to at the end of a day of sightseeing. Since it is very small, there is no restaurant, and the front desk isn't always staffed. The staff were very willing to give recommendations for restaurants and sights to see. It's really like having your own apartment with daily maid service. And in December, it was 80 euros per suite!

Room Tip: We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment hugeeeee

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!
