Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Apartment was great, very spacious and clean. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area. They all spoke very good English. The apartment was in an ideal location, easily within walking distance of the Alhambra and other attractions. There is a supermarket 5 mins walk away. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights in early August. Were in a 1 bedroom apartment with a living room, kitchen and bath. Since new owner has only had property for little more than 1 year, still in process og upgrading furnishings. Great surprise was a washer/dryer in kitchen that allowed us to take clean clothes back on outr return trip home. Staff even provided laundry detergent! Staff was accommodating and friendly. Really felt you were part of the neighborhood and the city. Down narrow street but within less than 5 minutes easy walking from City Center. Another plus was the very reasonable cost for almost a 650 square apartment.

We really enjoyed staying here - it was cosy and private. The owner/manager speaks excellent English and so he was able to give us great advice about the city. Our one bedroom apartment was equipped with everything we needed - a washing and drying imachine, kitchen, TV and air conditioning. The whole hotel is very quiet and peaceful and we got lots of sleep - unlike many hotels which are centrally located. Many restaurants, shops, attractions and a supermarket are within walking distance. The train station was a 10 minute taxi ride away. The bus up to the Alhambra departs from around the corner. Good value for money.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on our recent trip to Granada, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. This is an apartment style hotel located in a small pedestrian only lane. Our taxi dropped us off a few steps from the entrance so there was not a lot of luggage dragging involved at all.

We were warmly welcomed by Pablo the owner who only took over the business a year ago, and were provided with all the info we needed. We felt immediately at home when we saw our apartment. It was beautifully decorated in the Andalusian style decor, spacious, and had a large fridge, well equipped kitchen to make breakfast etc, and a washing machine/dryer which came in very handy! I had requested a quiet apartment with balcony and got three balconies!! Pablo spoke perfect English and attended to every of our needs with attention and enthusiasm, and nothing was too trouble.

The hotel is only 2 min walk from the popular eating street, and the no. 31 bus which takes you to the Alhambra. Also only 5-7 min walk from the centre of town so everything is literally around the corner. Despite its location, it was quiet and we heard absolutely no noise from the street or other guests during our stay. It felt safe walking around the area at night and Granada was a very tourist-friendly place, with great food and friendly locals.

We really loved our stay at Arte Vida Spa & Suites. It felt like a home away from home, and was our favourite hotel during our trip to Spain and France. And best thing was its bargain price!! I can't recommend it highly enough. For people who don't normally look for apartment style accommodations, I can only say that it was the best value, most comfortable place we've stayed, and you won't know what you are missing out!!

Thanks Pablo for making our stay in Granada such a memorable one!!

We've spent 3 nights in Arte Vida Suites. Our apartement matched all of our desires, the location was perfect and the staff was very helpful and poilte. We've accidently left behind one of our luggages, and after the cleaning women found it, she immediately gave it to the reception, and they spent after us and completely free!

We've had a wonderful time in this resort and we would reccomend it to everyone!

We picked this place because we had been traveling from hotel to hotel and wanted a little more room to relax and cook our own food and w very pleased with Arte Vida suites. It is located literally near every attraction in downtown Granada and it felt literally like a home away from home, with a relaxing Andalusian decor. The taxi driver had to look in the maps to find out how to bring us there but he got us to within 50 meters walking distance. We were on the ground floor and since the AC was running, we never heard a thing around us, though I admit, we were out most if the time visiting (which is the point if traveling -no?). Anyway, it's a very nice little home away from home directly in central Granada and we highly recommend it.

Our endeavour to provide an excellent service to our customers has led us to create a new concept within our company and it is called Arte Vida Suites. We combines hotel facilities such as daily room cleaning service, reception and spa... with the advantages of being hosted in an apartment (fully equipped kitchen, washing and drying machine...).

Regarding the means of transport to get to the hotel, the taxi company center have been duly informed of our location since our very beginning so there are few cases like yours. We are sorry for your experience...

Arte Vida is one of the fews hotel located in the city center, but at the same time on a pedestrian street, conditions ensuring a peaceful atmosphere in the apartments at just 2 step from the townhall square.

We are glad to make you feel yourself at home. Thanks for your comment!

My husband and I have just returned from a two night break at this traditionally Spanish apartment block - there are a whole seven appartments in the building.

Firstly I have to say what an oasis in the city centre, cool calm with a great deal of charm. So convienient you find it difficult to believe where you are actually are. The rooms are really well furnished, the kitchen even includes a washer/dryer. Kettles and irons are not in the rooms but a quick question at reception which is open until 8pm will mean one is put in your room. If you require any provisions from the supermarket, directions are quickly provided as is a map and a 'local' perspective of places to visit.

During our stay both my husband and I booked the spa circuit and 30 minute masage package at 35 euros and couldn't fault the experience. Evelynn was absolutely wonderful, she opened the spa for just my husband and I but didn't rush us in any way. The experience was one of the best I have ever had anywhere in the world.

We would highly recommend a stay here for singles, couple and family's alike. We did use the car park which was excellent and totally secure. What a wonderful stay. Thanks you so much to everyone.

We are proud of our city, and that's why we love and enjoy explaining our guests the secrets of this wonderful city to live this experience in a local way. All the apartments are fully equipped so you do not need to be worried but to live your trip as intensely and confortably as possible. Besides, we try to keep the Spa atmosphere as peaceful and private as the apartments are. Thank you for your comment.
