“What a fabulous view”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The view from the bedroom (upper story of the 2 level apartment) is of the Alhambra. There was nothing to mar the view or to intrude on the privacy of the room. The twin beds look out to double glazed French doors with a Juliet balcony and THAT view which is illuminated at night.

The bathroom on this level is compact and provides all you need, except maybe privacy as the walls do not go to the ceiling. There is good hot water pressure.

The open staircase accesses the kitchen and lounge below (notice I started from the view). The kitchen unit is small and has some of the basics needed to prepare meals but, with all the reasonably priced cafes in the vicinity, eating in may not be a priority. Off the lounge is a paved walled patio with a table and chairs. It does not have a view but is convenient and, although only separated by a partial screen adjoining the owners patio, it was private during our stay.

The owner Antonio is enthusiastic about his home city and will generously share many tips about where to eat, where to buy wine and great ice cream. We had an early flight from Granada and would have struggled to organise a taxi. Antonio phoned a taxi driver he knew. It worked like clockwork, picked up right out the front, on time. Peace of mind there.

The apartment is convenient, well priced, private and generally works but maybe it's time for a little TLC. Passing traffic, vehicle and foot, was low and we experienced little intrusive noise except the inevitable singing drunk on a weekend night.

Book entry to the Alhambra in advance as getting tickets on the day requires a very early start and God on your side (or knowing to queue at the nearby automated credit card section rather than the main queue). Alternatively join a tour.

“Fabulous views, well located in the old Arab quarter”

Our arrival was a bit rocky, thanks to an unhelpful taxi driver in spite of Antonio’s warning (see “hints”.) However, once we had settled in, we ended up being happy with the place.
The views of the Alhambra are exactly as shown, and the apartment is close to the centre of the old Moorish quarter. The twin beds were comfortable enough, and there was a trundle bed under one, plus it appears that the two downstairs sofas could be converted to make beds for larger families. The walls of the bathroom don’t go all the way to the roof, so it’s not very soundproof, and is equipped with toilet, basin, bidet and shower but no bath. Downstairs there’s a small cooking top, microwave, frig, and combined sink and breakfast counter with 2 stools. The outside balcony gets plenty of sun, and there is a table and several chairs.
There are a couple of things to note. The sofas were not very comfortable for my wife (she needs good seating following a bad accident 2 years ago.) Families with small children will need to watch them on the stairs – there are gaps in the railing. And – not Antonio’s fault – the unit suffers during the day from the noise of passing scooters and motor bikes; fortunately there are very few later in the evening.
Antonio himself was very helpful, appearing shortly after our arrival with a map and a list of things to see and the best places to eat, marking them accurately on the map he gave us. He was also very helpful with other questions later on, and set us up with a taxi-driving neighbour for the trip to the airport when we left. So, yes, happy.

Hint: The street San Juan de los Reyes has a notoriously narrow spot just past the apartment and many taxi drivers refuse to drive to it (ours didn’t tell us until we were almost there). If you have heavy cases, I suggest you ask specifically before accepting the cab. If your driver drops you off on the Calle Darro, about 50 metres down the slope from Juan de los Reyes, make sure he does so at the junction with Calle Concepcion de Zafra (about 50 metres past the old Arab bath, el Bañuelo). From there you can trundle your cases up a short left-right zigzag to San Juan de los Reyes without having to carry them up steps, and you emerge only a short distance back from the apartment.
