El Numero 8 is NOT your typical place to stay - and in this case, that is a very good thing. It is located in a great neighborhood in the Albaycin and owned and run by the quite interesting Rafa and his equally hip, accommodating and knowledgable staff. There is an excellent rooftop terrace for enjoying morning coffee and evening sunsets with a nice view of the Alhambra. Each apartment is different and special in it's own way. All in all it is a very chill and relaxed atmosphere. And it it walking distance to almost everywhere you might want to go during your stay - and the walks are a trip in and of themselves. Highly recommended, particularly if you want an experience that is not part of the same ol' routine.
- 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
