If possible, pick a hotel or apartment in the Albayzin itself. Take night strolls and just get yourself lost in the Albayzin are the most memorable things of the entire trip!
Breakfast in Plaza Largo, coffee in San Nicholas square overlooking the Alhambra with a frozen backdrop, lunch on the way back down. Really well worth exploring.

Definitely go here for the sunset from one of the many miradores (lookouts)- the view of the mountains and city with the setting sun is breathtakingly magical!
