Tasteful apartment to rent in a restored 18th century listed townhouse. Located as close as possible to the city centre whilst still being in the Albayzin, the charming old Moorish quarter of Granada, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Within 5 mins walk (300m) of Plaza Nueva and 15 minutes walk (800m) of the Alhambra. The central yet quiet location means you are also a short walk from numerous bars and restaurants. This is a very bright apartment with spacious bedrooms and a small south facing balcony that overlooks a quiet square. It has partial views of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Alhambra. The master bedroom has a king size double bed, the second bedroom has twin bed. A supplementary adult sized single bed or a cot with a comfortable mattress are available on request.

This place was perfect for walking around and the views were awesome! I was amazed that you could drive a car to the apartment. Roads are narrow and cobblestone. Jamie was a huge help, he was quite knowledgeable about where the good tapas were and also pointed us to a great beach town called Nerja. Thanks Jamie! The apartment was a nice two bedroom, one bath, full kitchen and we had a terrace.

Apartamento con encanto. Situación ideal, muy cerca de la calle de la candelería nueva que todo el mundo conoce como la calle de los puestecitos y de las teterías. A pocos minutos, de la catedral y zona de bares. Jamie es el encargado muy amable y atento por si necesitábamos algo. Lo único que le falta al apartamento es una fregona, pero ese pequeño detalle es fácil de solucionar. Lo califico con un 9. Un saludo.

The house, with its traditional design around the 'patio' or courtyard, is situated halfway up the hill to St. Nicolas: it is easy to get down to town in order to see the Spanish sites as well as to wander up through the medieval alleyways in the Albaicin to cafes & restaurants both along the way & at the top. The Alhambra itself is on an opposite hill & clearly visible from the top flat terrace & bedroom. Our apartment was on the 1st floor and had a glimpse of the Alhambra & the Sierra Nevadas through the surrounding buildings. It was an excellent home for our fortnight holiday - with all the practical equipment we needed, simple but comfortable furnishings, perfectly adequate kitchen & bathroom facilities, and a friendly but completely unintrusive household atmosphere. Jamie let us in & gave us useful local information, sorted out practicalities in the building & ordered the return cab for the airport. We used Granada Online in Clle Reyes Catolicos to book bus trips out to Cordoba & the Alpujarras & they could not have been more helpful concerning options, times, best prices etc.. The intercity buses are clean, friendly & quietly driven. The food mercado in Granada is superb - fresh, high quality meat/fish/cheese/wine/bread &the stallholders willing to engage despite our limited Spanish & their limited English. Granada is reasonably quiet before Christmas, busier afterwards: overall it is an easy city to stay in, people are polite but self-contained, the tourist alleyways are busy but not aggressive, the sites are dramatic, easy to reach & negotiate (but do book the Alhambra visit) & the conditions comfortable. We loved it.

First the positives - I love unique, historical buildings and this ticks both boxes. The location is stunning and your sightseeing experience commences from the moment you walk out of the building door. The arrival arrangements were perfect and the apartment is stylishly furnished as can be seen from the photographs. The beds, linens and pillows are comfortable. However, a comfortable bed does not ensure a good night's sleep when there is street noise. My family of 4 adults stayed here for three nights in November 2016 and each one of us was awoken several times per night by people talking/laughing loudly as they walked past. The street is narrow therefore any noise echoes and amplifies in the street just a couple of metres below the bedroom windows. The facilities that were important to me were wifi [worked perfectly], washer and dryer. I clearly didn't understand that there was no dryer and I had to ask for a clothes horse upon which to hang the wet clothes, which took more than 24 hours to dry. This may sound like a minor issue but I mention it because this is a one-off experience across many rentals in different countries but there were small niggles - not enough toilet paper to last three days, no washing detergent, almost no provisions in the kitchen, the hot water wasn't hot enough, the toaster blew the apartment fuse. Some things were rectified/supplied when I brought them to the attention of the on-site manager but I have NEVER been rationed on toilet paper and had to buy it, even when I have stayed in apartments for a week.

Dear Caroline, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you got woken up at night by people talking loudly. The area is actually relatively quiet for centre of Granada there is very little traffic as the street is a dead end and there are no bars or restaurants in the immediate vicinity. But sometimes people may pass by talking loudly. In terms of kitchen provisions we provide washing-up liquid, sponges and a brush so guests can wash-up. We also provide olive oil, salt & pepper, tea, coffee, sugar and milk so guests can have a cup of tea or coffee without having to go shopping. In the bathroom we provide hand soap and two toilet rolls which should be enough for short stays. If any of these things are missing we ask future guests just to ask the on site house keeper for them. The hot water is normally hot enough, it can be set to 65 degrees C, perhaps the setting on the boiler had been changed. Again we ask future guests to speak to the on site house keeper and they will be able to rectify any such issues. All the best Nina

This apartment is ideal in many ways and significantly enhanced by having an on-site manager for arrival, departure, security, and local tips. The owner and manager provided exceptional instructions and communications -- clearly the best of the five apartments we rented during our 3 weeks in Spain. The location in low-to-mid Albaycin is wonderful. It is also steeped in history: an 11th century minaret (modified into a 16th century bell tower) is literally a few feet away. The apartment''s ceiling beams are about 300 years old. The only drawback is the road noise outside the bedrooms. The road is very narrow so vehicular and pedestrian sounds are magnified as it's like a canyon. We found that ear plugs very helpful or even necessary for undisturbed sleeping. Noise sensitivity is of course a personal matter and your experience may be different.
