My Spanish daughter in law found this lovely place for us to spend a long weekend together in Granada. There were 5 of us (including my 17 year old grandson) and the suite had 2 large double bedrooms, a lounge/dining room with a double sofa bed, balcony, kitchen, bathroom and seperate toilet. By the way, they do have kettles -... More

We were very happy with our stay here. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. The spa was a great value. Our 50 minute massage was heavenly, and the sauna and hot tub were fine. The location is perfect-you can walk everywhere. The apartment has a kitchen with dishes so you can save a little $$. Lots of restaurants and... More

Dear friend, our apartments are fully equipped and have typical Andalusian decor, with paintings that leave no one indifferent. About our Spa, we offer a professional, close and intimate service, so we are glad that you liked it. Our car park is the cheapest in the area and the closest one to the hotel, and you won´t need to move... More

want to come back to Granada so that I can stay in this apartment at Arte Vida Suite and Spa, for longer next time. The apartment had a lovely homely feel about it while also meeting hotel standards of cleanliness and quality furniture. It also had charm and comfort.

We stayed here for two nights in January and were glad the apartment had heating! If you book their parking then follow the directions to the letter, it's a bit of a maze! The one bed apartment we had on the first floor was lovely and very well equipped. The location is perfect, we walked everywhere, to San Nicolas and... More

Dear friends, our apartments and location are perfect to visit the city on foot. As you checked, they have anything you may need during your stay and if there is something missing...simply tell us. We are VERY sorry that the steam room didn´t work and we basically tried to compensate for the inconveniences (it wouldn´t be fair, otherwise...). These kind... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for our 15th weddiing anniversary and loved it. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment as it was the only one available. The apartment was very large and interestingly decorated - gothic and romatic! We only really used the kitchen to store cava in the fridge, but I loved having a central... More

Arte vida.. A bit tricky by car but location is worth it. The hotel emails you directions.. Follow them. I got confused at the end of the street Recogdias-you need to go straight into angel ganivart street. But it's a smaller road and personally i couldn't find the arches. But once we got past that hiccup it was fine. If... More

Excellent location, apartment size and hospitality. Spent 2 nights in Granada with my family, which we enjoyed greatly. It is very central with many restaurants around. At the same time is in a very quiet street. Arte Vida suited us perfectly. Next time in Granada we will definitely return.
