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

My husband and I stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. The apartment was so comfortable and it had everything you need to feel right at home.The kitchen was especially impressive, much bigger than expected! We cooked a few good meals here when we were all tapased out! The host, Rob, met us on our arrival and walked... 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

I had such a fantastic time at El Número 8. The little guitar-maker's studio where I stayed felt like a sanctuary and a home away from home from where I could retreat in winter coziness after exploring the beauties of Granada. I was here for four nights and Rafa was a lovely, interesting and friendly host who made me feel... More

While I agree with many of the comments in other reviews (lovely roof terrace, hospitable host, great location), there are 3 aspects which made our stay unpleasant: 1. it was COLD! We visited in November. There are (inadequate) radiators in each of the sleeping areas and absolutely no heat in the kitchen, dining area or bathroom. Innkeeper Rob gave us... More

Thanks for the review, we always appreciate feedback! The aircon in the dining area also has a heat setting which is more than sufficient to heat the kitchen and dining area and indeed keeps the whole apartment warm while you are there. Apologies, this should have been made clearer to you while you at the start of your stay. More

El Numero 8 is a great budget option in Granada. It has lots of character and the staff (Rob) was very helpful and friendly. The rooftop patio is definitely the star of the show though--we thoroughly enjoyed the views of the Alhambra at night. Also, staying in the Albyzin is a super experience, so the location is awesome. And it's... 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
