My mother an me stayed at the numero 8 for 2 nights. The location of the apartment is very nice in the old quarter Albayzin opposite hill of the Alhambra. On the rooftop terrace you have an astonishing view to the Alhambra. The apartment itself was downstairs what is quite good as it never gets hot. The furniture was nice... More

I was staying three days in an apartment at El Numero 8. It was a cosy place, with typical ambience of moorish Granada. The house is made very prettily and with consciousness of nature respect. It's situated in a calm place of this great district Albaicin; that is picturesque in the morning and has some special places to go in... More

El Numero 8 is a beautiful, traditional building with clean, well-furnished, tastefully decorated rooms in an excellent location (provided you're not planning to spend a lot of time wearing high heels) with an amazing roof terrace from which you have views of the Alhambra. Rafa and Rob couldn't have been more helpful. Clearly a lot of though has gone into... More

Its a perfect location in the old area of town and super easy to get around. The place has an authentic Moorish feel, its a cosy size but built to stay cool which was amazing to retreat to on hot days. The shared terrace is great to relax on and the view is spectacular. Both Rob and Rafa are very... More

We spent 2 nights in Granada and enjoyed our time at El Numero 8. The photos and the description on their website are accurate and our room was very clean. The host (Rob) was very helpful and gave great recommendations. This is a very unique setting and the rooftop is just lovely with the extra bonus of a great view.... More

Stayed here in March with Lizzie and other new friends, it's a brilliant place to be and it took our breath away and believe me I had a well deserved break. The surrounding area was an amazing place to explore, the hospitality service was great from Mr Rob who made sure we got well orientated and settled in. Our accommodation... More

Stayed there with a few friends March 2014. Didn't realise until I arrived that I would be reclining in such a historic spot - immersed in the history of Grenada! Rob took great care of us and met all of needs - he made everything easy! Loved the location, up past the the main hub of tourists with great views... More

Rafael's place is really great--excellent location for Alhambra and Sacromonte, unique apartment, nice common area on the patio with a wonderful view, and a very kind and helpful host! He was very generous with his time and recommendations--we ate everywhere he sent us and loved it! We had great sleep there too--nice and quiet. Temperature was just fine during our... More

I had the great pleasure of staying at el numero 8 for seven weeks. It was a little piece of heaven. I originally booked to stay for four weeks (lucky me!) but couldn't leave - I just kept extending my stay till I absolutely had to return home. Everything said in other reviews about how wonderful the team that runs... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Numero 8 is not a typical hotel. It is a traditional casa de vecinos separated into separate apartments located in the Ancient Moorish area of Granada, the Albayzin. It is also our home that we share with travelers. It is a very tranquil place to stay and we ask our guests to come with respect for the house and for the neighborhood which is all pedestrian and very quiet for being right in the center of the city of Granada. ... more   less
