“The kids loved this cave house!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2006

We took a chance and booked this cave hotel in the gypsy quarter of Granada and it was great! One of our cheaper accomodation choices at 90 euros per night, we got two good-sized bedrooms (one with two single beds, one with one double bed), a kitchen, bathroom with shower and living room. There was also a lovely patio table out front. Our children (11 and 7) loved this cave house as it was large and unique. It was mercifully cool in June (the adults did find if a bit damp). The beds were comfortable and there was a good view of the Alhambra close by. You have to park down the hill and carry your suitcases up a ways. There are about 7 other rooms and a balcony above with a hammock and a few chairs.

The proprietor spoke a bit of English.

We stayed at these caves between the 24th and 26th April. The lady who looks after the caves was lovely, very helpful and informative. The cave itself was lovely, a good size with all the amenities you require and a shop not too far away for your supplies. It was equipped with air con despite the fact that it was naturally cool anyway. The terrace above the caves was a real sun trap and boasted some lovely views, most of all it was very quiet and peaceful. We felt the location was perfect about 15 mins downhill walk to the city centre and slightly more for the Alhambra the only downside is it is uphill all the way back again so you do need to be fairly fit, it is well worth it though. Can't recommend it enough.
