Charming 7 room Carmen beautifully decorated with stunning views of Granada at 7000 feet and the nearby Sierra Nevadas at 10000 feet. Quietly located but easy walking distance to Alhambra via the Justice Gate; easy downhill walk to City but catch a bus back. Host Manuel was exceptional. Made us feel very welcome, helpful with local information, and guidance. He... More

Delightfully positioned high above the city and with spectacular views, the accommodation is clean, comfortable, small and personalised with helpful, friendly staff who could not do enough to assist with anything we needed.

This property is in a great location for visiting the Alhambra and although a steep climb back up very convenient for the city. The room was spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. The host was helpful and organised a restaurant for us upon arrival. The food for breakfast was very good and plentiful.

This is a very nice villa with spacious and clean interiors, beautiful garden, and great views of the city. Within walking distance of Alhambra and the city center. It is located on a hill and requires climbing up a flight of stairs. It is not in the most touristy area, but in a much nicer and quieter location. The owner... More

This property was in a very quiet neighborhood, it is a converted house which was very comfortable, clean and within walking distance to The Alhambra. The host was very gracious and helpful with suggestions on scheduling our days so we could get the most out of our trip. I highly recommend this property.

This little hotel has 4 rooms which are on different levels. It is a house that has been converted to a small hotel. It is more like a B and B than a traditional hotel. It sits high on the hill near the Alhambra in Granada and provides outstanding views from the rooms and the various patio decks. The owner... More

When one gazes upon The Alhambra, A thousand magical images of Arabian Nights come to mind. To look out our window of this lovely hotel and once again see those same sights made us crave to stay here longer. Perfect room, perfect hotel, and perfect view.

Quiet residential area, close to the Alhambra with lovely views of the city, especially from the reception/seating area. Self-service at bar area added to the homely feel. A little too cold to sit out on the terrace unfortunately but I imagine this could be lovely at the right time of the year. Lorenzo very helpful and pleasant as was the... More
