A lovely 7 bedroom property overlooking the city of Granada and within easy walking distance of The Alhambra. Our host Manuel was so welcoming and helpful with lots of tips for us to enjoy Granada. Our rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. We breakfasted on the terrace overlooking the city. Delicious coffee and a nice continental breakfast. We just...

Finding this hotel was not the easiest but worth every minute once you get there. The views from our room was breath taking - we watched the sun set on the Alhambra Palace hotel and over the whole city. Manuel and his staff were excellent, efficient and most helpful with all our questions. We will miss Lorenzo's coffee in the...

This is a gorgeous "Carmen" or home on the hillside of the Alhambra. The room we had "Torre" was at the top of the stairs and led out onto a spacious terrace overlooking the city. And on top of that the Wisteria was in bloom. Manuel is a perfect host and makes dealing with hilly terrain effortless.

Lovely hotel. Our room was fabulous with an absolutely stunning view across the city from our bed and a large private terrace overlooking the same view. Breakfast was basic and on our second morning it was 30 minutes late and we had to leave so we missed it altogether but they were very apologetic. Overall we had a fantastic stay....

We had an excellent stay at this beautiful property. We mostly picked it because of its proximity to the Alhambra, but we were delighted to find that it is very close to many restaurants and bars. Yes, it is a steep climb, but its location on a tiny street also means that it is quiet and serene. Take a taxi...

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...

We stayed at this property for 2 nights in September 2016 and found it excellent in every way. 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. Being within walking distance of the Alhambra,the main city...

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.

Thank IAN M
