Further east, the imposing spectacle of the Moorish Alhambra, framed by the great backdrop of Sierra Nevada

  • La ubicación de la cueva es estupenda, en el barrio del Albaicin de Granada que tiene mucho encanto por sus callejuelas empedradas y plazas, y sus vistas a la Alhambra. Blanca una excelente anfitriona muy atenta a las necesidades de sus huespedes.

  • Mi estancia en la casa cueva fue maravillosa!!! Una experiencia muy especial, el lugar es mágico y encantador. Todos los servicios estaban perféctos, no tuve ningún problema. Fresquita durante el día y la noche. La ubicación me pareció ideal ya que esta muy muy cerca del corazón del Albayzín. La recomiendo muchísimo para aquellos viajeros que buscan algo original y hogareño. Por la noche es muy tranquilo y descansas muy bien. El barrio es amigable y muy seguro. Me encantaría repetir y estar más tiempo en esta encantadora casa cueva!!! :D

  • Blanca was very attentive to our arrival. Because she was busy she made sure the housekeeper, Mary met us at the appropriate time. Check out was easy as well. We had some difficulties with the house, but Blanca was very responsive to them. It's very important here to have a cell phone so that you can make contact when needed.
    The house itself is very interesting. It really is a cave and provides for a unique living experience in a great neighborhood. Because it is a cave, it is a little damp. I am guessing this makes for a great summer home. We were comfortable enough here and there was a heater in the living room when it got a little cold. Our challenges were, I think, specific to our situation. One of us has trouble walking and this house is located in the Albacin where it's essential that you climb stairs and walk about ten minutes to get to Plaza Largo. For me, it was perfect. For my friend it was difficult because of the walking. Also, I would recommend this home for those who have light luggage. The best thing about this place, I think, is its location and the opportunity to stay in a house that is truly unique to this area.

  • Super cute cave with 2 bedrooms, 1 en suite, and another one with a bathroom just outside the door. As you might expect, this is unusual accommodation so do not expect it to be like your flat or a hotel and do not expect polished finishes BUT it is great. It is clean, it is charming and it is in the loveliest neighbourhood Granada has, the Albaycin.

    Blanca is really friendly and kind. Will definitely stay again and recommend to others.

  • This place was beautiful and the location ideal. We were tucked into the neighborhood, yet close to the great views of the city. The Alhambra was in walking distance, and the train station only a quick taxi ride away. The house was a unique and lovely place. Yes, it is damp and cool, as the other comments mention, for it is like staying in a cave. It is perfect for two couples or a family. We cooked some of our own meals in the well stocked kitchen, purchasing fresh eggs and vegetables from the market in the plaza down the road.

  • La casa es muy original, troglodita y muy grande. Hay también dos terrazas : una abajo y una arriba, con una hermosa vista de las murallas y la ciudad. Es muy fresco en la casa, que es muy bueno porque hace calor fuera ! Me encantó el barrio (Albaicín), un laberinto de callejones en la colina, con casas blancas. Está a 5 minutos a pie del Mirador de San Nicolás, donde la vista de la Alhambra es hermosa, con la montaña nevada detrás. Sin duda recomendaría esta casa, muy agradable.

  • Su ubicación en el barrio más bonito de Granada como es el Albayzin es buena.
    La cueva es ideal, bien distribuida y perfecta para nuestro gusto. Le fallan un poco las vistas pero algún "pero" tiene que tener.
    El trato de Blanca muy bueno aconsejándonos y preocupándose por nuestra llegada.
    Aunque para nosotros no supuso un problema, el acceso (por su orografía) pudiera ser "complicadillo" para personas con problemas de movilidad.
    Sobre 10 un 8'5.
