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.

"The upper floor rooms may be less cavern-like"
"all rooms seemed fine"
"All rooms are comparable"
"We loved room 2 as it was very spacious and handiest for roof terrace."
"we saw two of the rooms. They are not that large but more than comfortable and with the spectacular rooftop terrace overlooking the alhambra, there is no reason to be in the apartments except to sleep or take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen before bringing your meal to the roof!"
