Although in Granada only for one night, the whole experience was an unforgettable one. Soon after booking the apartment, I was contacted by a very friendly staff (Gemma), and she helped me to arrange the transportation from the airport to the hotel. I highly recommend taking a cab from the airport - if you're travelling in a group of 3-4 people, it is not only the most comfortable way to get to the hotel (especially if you have luggage to haul), it is also economical.
Both the hotel and the apartment are managed by the same entity, and are less than 100m apart. Both are located in the old part of the city, in the Albayzin. The Granada center is at the walking distance, and so is the main entrance to Alhambra. Please be aware that while it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the entrance, it is an uphill struggle, so depending on your physical condition, you may want to reconsider the time you will allow for the walk.
Back to the apartment, it is very reasonably equipped, and given the age of the building where it is situated, more than acceptable. Notice that the rating given here takes into consideration advertised ranking of the facility - it is a 3-star hotel I think, and those expectations were exceeded by far. One thing to consider is - the hotel building has wifi available, the apartment building does not. Now, given that you're in Granada, probably the last thing you want to do is to hang in the room using WiFi, but if you are in need of a quick update, you can always walk to the lobby which is always open (3-4 min walking distance) and do it from there.
The friendly staff is there to help you with directions, advice on getting around, help with transportation, events, tickets, anything you need they're really friendly and willing to help.
I would highly recommend considering this place for your Granada visit.
