To start off, we are seasoned travellers who have rented vacation rentals all over the world. We are also fit retirees who walked over 200 Km's on this vacation, the street to the house is very steep with large cobblestones and I was unable to pull my carry on bag up one section. The house is on a few levels which is ok however the steps to the deck are "interesting" being very very narrow. The view is awesome however we left after 2 nights because it was so noisy we could not sleep. The bedroom is on the street side and it felt like people were walking through the bedroom. It is near a park?where there were people walking, talking,shouting etc until 3-4am. Not sure if it was because of a weekend or what. The apartment itself is ok.
Absolutely loved everything about this apartment. Just as described and even better. So much character. Everything you need. The Alhambra view from the terrace of this apartment is unbeatable. Can't wait to return. Maybe not for the elderly if stairs and low bits to knock your head on are an issue but if not go for it!
Such a lovely home! We absolutely loved it. It's exactly as advertised. It was super clean, air conditioner, hot water, and WiFi. The terrace was amazing and we loved sitting up there every day with such a gorgeous view of the Alhambra. The only thing we didn't love was the incredibly small shower with low ceilings. It was difficult to shower, but everything else was perfect... so small price to pay. Highly recommend!
The loft apartment was great (but you have to watch your head in a couple of spots and I would not suggest having too many red wines on the terrace balcony and then coming down the stairs). Nadia and Artur were great. The location is close to Plaza Neuavo so you can walk (or take a cheap taxi) to anywhere in the central area of Granada. The Alhambra is magnificent - we did an organised tour which was really informative but they take you through the Alhambra and Generalife in about 2 hours - in retrospect it would have been great to have spent more time in the Alhambra just absorbing the magnificent stucco work.
There is no dispute that the view to The Alhambra is stunning, BUT there are more than one minus points associated with this property. Yes it is old and has been partially renovated but the tiny kitchen is on a different level to where plates and glasses are kept; the terrace is two levels higher and just about needs to be crawled up. There are no hand rails and my 6 foot 1 inch husband had to duck before going through most doors. The stand out problem with this property was the shower over the bath (see pic), the area of which was encroached by the staircase to the level above, allowing about 45cm from the wall before you head came into contact with the underside of the steps. Other issues prospective renters should be aware of include having to drag luggage up cobblestone steps and lanes AFTER being dropped at the closest point by taxi. This old part of Granada is made up of a labyrinth cobblestone lanes which are difficult to walk on and slippery when dry. If you are young and fit this property may suit you. Yes Nadia was lovely but she spoke very little English. Again, the view was amazing...but!
