Away from the main tourist crowds - but some local restaurants do flamenco shows so there are tourist around, nevertheless much quieter than downtown Granada. Staying in a cave is a novelty and it was quite comfortable and a basic breaffast was provided. However the very high Trip Advisor rating has to be taken with care - this is gust... More

This is an almost unique experience to stay in a cave so close to the centre of the wonderful city of Granada. You really get a sense of where you are and the history of the Sacromonte in particular. The caves are very clean, well lit and well furnished. Within walking distance of the Alhambra, Albaicin and City Centre if... More

The cave is at a good location to see Alhambra. We stayed two nights here and very relaxing. We had two big luggages with us, when we arrived airport we took bus to downtown then took taxi to hotel. I am glad that we took taxi, since it takes 5 minutes to walk upper hills road to the bottom of... More

We found the hotel to be a memorable experience and located with easy access to many of the sites. The rooms were large and being caves, it was just the right temperature. We had a two bedroom and it included a sitting area, kitchen and breakfast table. We could have fit several more people in the space. Outside our room... More

A great location to explore Granada from. The cave apartment was just what we required. Clean,relatively spacious (I'm 6'2) with a comfortable bed and decent bathroom, in a quiet area. We enjoyed sitiing outside having our breakfast, just taking it easy. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, even if their English isn't brilliant. They told us where the local... More

The caves were a really great place to stay in Granada, facilities were fantastic and the staff were really helpful. The location was great in the Albacin, which allowed exploration of this area, great views of the hills and the Alhambra. Would recommend to anyone.

I read a blog on tripadvisor that said that visitors to Granada must experience staying in the caves and boy, am I glad I did just that!! Getting there - Not much of an issue. We took a cab that dropped us a few meters from the entrance. We had intimated the owner of our arrival and he was there... More

I'm so happy I found Cuevas El Abanico. It was a special treat to stay here. The room is very pretty and homey and you have everything you need in the small kitchen. The bed was comfortable with good linens and since you are in a cave, you sleep very well. The owner was very kind although we only saw... More

My husband and I stayed in a small studio cave for two nights in October and it was one of the highlights of our traveling life so far. I expected a much more taxing walk from the center of town based upon other reviews but we did not find it difficult or excessively long at all. The views of the... More

Experience Cuevas El Albanico. The grotto is on a unique spot straight across the Alhambra. A very friendly host welcomed us. The first thing you see is a beautiful private terrace. In the cave you will be surprised by the athmosphere. We had the 3 room appartment. It was great. Small kitchen and two bedrooms. It was pleasure, fun and... More
