“Interesting for a night, but it's a bit rough!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2011

These caves are a cheap way to stay in Granada, however it might not be worth it. They are located up a set of cobblestone stairs that are difficult to negotiate with a roller bag. We arrived late after a delayed flight and the taxi driver didn't know where the caves were located. We had to call our contact to find out. The contact you have will have to be phoned because there is no office for this outfit.

The cave itself was a "3 bedroom," but really it was a long passageway with blankets strung up for privacy. Any light or noise from the others you can see/hear so it's essentially one large room. There are 3 bathrooms, 2 with showers. The showers have no stall, so you soak the entire room when you shower. The kitchen was tiny and basic, with a 2 burner stove, no oven, dorm refrigerator and clothes washer. There were no trash cans, although we did dig up some trash bags.

The cave was quiet and dark, just what you'd think. It was hard to wake up with no sunlight to guide you. The beds were comfy and had nice white sheets and comforters. They felt a little wet but it was hard to tell if they were wet or if it was just the extreme humidity in the cave.

The cave's location on a hillside makes it a tough go after a long day's walk, but it is an interesting neighborhood and there are some nice views. Flamenco bars line the streets nearby.

The cave had a strong dank smell and it made the kids and their grandma sniffle. All this would be okay, but after the second night we noticed that the white covering painted on the walls and ceiling was shedding on everything. We are adventurous travelers, but that was really the last straw. We booked for 3 nights and left after 2, something I've never done before.

Room Tip: Ask for a cave with good ventilation

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2010

I stayed here over the christmas period and had a lovely stay. Its self catering so there is no hotel service but thats what we liked, we felt as though it was ours for our stay. The rooms had a very spanish feel and very comfortable and cosy. The shower was great, nice and hot and good pressure. I was surprised as the caves seem so old! The kitchen is small but had everything we needed to make a little tapas spread before we walked down into Granada City for a night out. A perfect location as you really feel you are in the real old part of Granada. There are also beautiful views of the Alhambra from right outside the door which was lovely to wake up to and see at night, as its all lit up of an evening. Definitely worth a visit! The roads are cobbled around there so be careful in heels and bring some slippers as the floor is marble/tile so gets a bit cold in the morning or after a shower. A really lovely find and a bargain too, would definitely go back again!
