“Great little apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

We stayed in the 'Laurel' apartment which is split over two levels. Its tiny but nicely furnshed in a psuedo Mooorish style with a well kitted-out kitchen and pleasant bathroom. The apartments are in the centre of the lower Albaycin, 30 seconds walk from the narrow lane that leads along the rivers edge from the Plaza Neuva. Although located on the main 'road' this was the quietest place we stayed in during our trip. This is great choice for younger couples but the very tight spiral stair case that connects the kitchen to the bedroom might be problematic to those of restricted mobility. However, the other apartements are on one level; one of them has a roof terrace.

This quaint hotel is located in the middle of the old city of Granada. It has a small kitchen and living room, but is quite austere. Nevertheless, you can walk to the Albaisin area and the Alhambra. Nobody is on-site to greet you when you arrive, so you'll have to make arrangements, in advance, for them to meet you there. Really good value for this area.

We chose this apartment because of reviews on this site and were very disappointed.
Yes there is a good view of Alhambra from terrace but, although building work next door, like much in Spain, has been halted, the terrace shares 3 windows with next door, one cracked and filthy, one partially boarded and one with no glass.
The apartment itself was very small, bedroom was really a cupboard. You had to crawl over the bed to get into it as there was no room at sides. Kitchen was poorly eqipped, not even a wine glass! No cooker just a microwave and a 2 ring hotplate.
No coffee or toiletries as described by a previous reviewer in fact not ene soap in the bathroom.
We were welcomed with some Morrocan tea but the welcome didn't extend to helping us up the 3 flights of stairs with our bags despite her being half our age!
Directions frm bus were poor as the road we were told to take from Grand Via didn't meet up with Grand Via, it started at a higher junction!
We have stayed in many apartments all over the world and this is one of the worst ever.

Room Tip: Don't go there!

We stayed here for two nights for our stay in Granada and really enjoyed our time. We had a top apartment with terrace with wonderful views over the ahlambra just right for a bottle of wine and relaxing in the evening. The building has been renovated and is on one of the small streets in the old quarter. Only thing to mention there are steep stairs to the terrace if you have any mobility issues. The building next door is being renovated nothing happening when we were there but could be an issue for this room do worth checking out. Loved the extra touches such as tea/coffee and lovely toiletries.

Really great hotel! Has kitchen, dining room table, living room area, as well as bedroom and bathroom :) Lots of room compared to most Europe hotels. Very clean and nice hotel!! Would stay again in a second!

Did not notice noise because the living room/kitchen area had a door you could close to separate from the bedroom and this kept the noise level down.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher level room to lessen noise.

We stayed with friends in the ground floor apartment for 4 persons. It was very noisy - we had noise from the neighbours and from the street outside (revellers walking back into the city from the top of Albaycin at night). Windows were not double glazed, no air conditioning. Also, construction on the building next door woke us up at 7am in the morning during our stay. Rooms were pokey, there is no room to swing a cat in.

The best thing about the apartment is the location - it is within walking distance to alot of cafes, restaurants and bars. I hope the owner does something about the noise levels in the apartment.
