This is a very unique place to stay. It has a nice cozy feel to it, and the hosts, Carmen & Rafa are very friendly and helpful. The upstairs patio is unbelievable, with the views of the Alhambra at night. The apt is in the most interesting part of town, and is within walking distances of most major attractions nearby. Carmen met us at the pick-up point and got us oriented so we could find our way back to the apt by ourselves. We were in apt #4 which faces the street. It’s dark and cool inside, but that is appreciated when it is 30C+ outside. The apt is small but functional. The kitchen has what is needed to prepare meals in it, and the sleeping area is very quiet as it faces the inner courtyard. We found the place to be very authentic for the neighborhood and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. It is also our home that we share with travelers. It is a very tranquil place to stay and we ask our guests to come with respect for the house and for the neighborhood which is all pedestrian and very quiet for being right in the center of the city of Granada. ... more less
