El Carmen is a little oasis in Granada,the room are spacious and extremely clean and set around a beautiful tranquil garden. Arnold and Donnally are attentive and informative and very friendly. The only downside for me is that is is a bit of a walk to the centre of town and it is advisable to get a taxi back at night for safety reasons. Having said that we stayed twice! They also have really good value studios.
