SOME TOURIST INFORMATION:

La Carrera del Darro and the Paseo de los Tristes is for many one of the world's most beautiful streets.

Its official name is Carrera del Darro until it opens a wide avenue overlooking the Alhambra, here his name is Father Manjón, but popularly known as the Paseo de los Tristes for being the place where the funeral procession passed in way to the cemetery since the beginning of the century until the rise to the cemetery (behind the Alhambra), was done by the Cuesta de los Chinos, which begins at the end of the ride, so all the funeral procession passed by this place.

This walk runs parallel to the river Darro, formerly Dauro (Latin Aurus = gold) because people have used to wash gold in their orillas.En past this river was crossed by numerous bridges, of which the bridge connecting the Cadi the Alhambra with the Albayzín. Another of them leads to the source of Hazel is Aljibillo Bridge, still standing.

The Bridges of Cabrera and Espinosa are still preserved in good condition and allow us to contemplate across this beautiful ride from another perspective

Walking the street is a festival for the senses as the traveler accompanying the beautiful views of their churches (San Pedro), convents where the nuns sell candy, Arab baths, the smell of incense and spices, bright colors from the picturesque craft shops, bars and restaurants. You can always stop and listen to musicians who give their show on the street, under the imperturbable gaze of the mysterious Red Castle, the Alhambra

The location of the apartment is great - up a small alley (they are *all* small alleys!) in the Albaizin (old Muslim quarter) just off the Darro river. It's a bit off the club/pub circuit, but if you want a better cultural experience this is a great location - a number of Islamic houses/sites within easy walking distance. And it's at the base of the Alhambra, which dominates this part of town. Victoria was very helpful and provided lots of information and links about things to visit and places to go. However, I need to highlight some negatives about the apartment. Firstly, it doesn't seem to get cleaned very well - grime on the tile floors, dust under the beds, hairs in the shower. Secondly, there are some maintenance issues that need to get addressed - broken lights, light switches, and a nasty smell from the drain under the sink. But on the plus side, it has a washing machine (which was very welcome after a week travelling). And there is a stunning view of the Alhambra from the roof terrace and through the windows. So, if you are put off by the negatives, stay elsewhere. But, for me, it's the memory of drifting off to sleep with the Alhambra lit up at night visible from the bed that will linger.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in Granada for 8 days . We got there by bus and our arrival time got delayed by hours , luckily that was no problem for Victoria & she waited for us ( we really appreciated that ) . Communication with Victoria was generally pretty good , she told us lot's of things about the City and when I messaged her with questions , she almost immediately answered them ! The apartment itsself : Of course the terrace is amazing , we really enjoyed the breakfast outside or late night wine sessions . Everything is better if you have the Alhambra right in front of you :) But there were also things bothering us : The apartment itsself is held in this rustical andalucian Style which is nice and I didn't expect a perfectly cleaned sterile room , but a little more cleaning especially in the bathroom would do no harm . Also there was a little too much dust everywhere ... The hot water is too limited for two people and running out too fast . Maybe that could be changed . Another which could easily be changed is the kitchen situation .. I don't know what all the people commenting "well equipped kitchen " need to cook a propper meal . But we were missing a cutting board , a sharp knife and other kitchen basics . Also the dust exctinctor didn't work.. Well all in all it was a good stay but the apartment could have much more potential if more effort would be put in. The kitchensituation as well as the cleanliness could be easily changed ... Greets & thanks to Victoria again Paul and Klara

Everything was fine. Nice small apartement, excellent view and well-equiped. Central, but still quiet location - in the middle of a safe and nice neighbourhood. The heating was o.k. Victoria was very friendly and welcoming. She received us on christmas eve - thank you for that! Excellent option for a stay in Granada and for visiting the Alhambra.

Beautiful view of the Alhambra from the private terrace. Victoria is very kind. Granada can get very cold in general, so be sure you bring warm sleep ware. Location is perfect, not high up in the Albaicin, but still with easy access to all parts of the neighborhood and the center of Granada.

The apartment has a amazing location looking up to the Alhambra, on the doorstep of Sacramonte and a 10 minute walk to central Granada. There are countless bars and restaurants within a minutes walk. The apartment is not modern, it is decorated in typical Andalucian style which gives you the feeling of living like a local. The private terrace gives stunning views of the Alhambra and it is fun trying to spot the balcony from the Alhambra. For the location and rustic ambiance we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Everything was as described or mentioned before in other reviews. This tiny apartment, enough for a couple, offers a reasonable large rooftop patio with wonderful views of the Alhambra. It is so great to sit on this patio, sip your glass of wine or beer, and to know, that you look at more than thousand years of history. If you are there with a car, do not make the same mistake, we did. Find a good place to park your car, or it will be towed away. On the other hand, the area, the apartment is located, offers everything you need, i. e. Groceries, markets, bars, Restaurants, souvenir shops etc. The host Victoria is a wonderful energetic and friendly lady, who offers their guests a lot of advice and her broad knowledge about Granada and its history. We recommend!

¿Qué es la hospitalidad?
Es hacer sentir a tu huésped, en casa.
Qué es seintirse en casa...?
Cierra los ojos y repite este pensamiento:
Estoy en Casa. Has sentido una sensación de comodidad y seguridad.

Te has sentido a salvo.

What does hospitality means to you?
Is to make your guest feel at home.
What does to feel at home means ...?
Close your eyes and repeat this thought:
I'm at home. You sense a feeling of comfort and security.

Did you feel safe.

We love our home and we love people who decide to stay here, we strive to welcome our guests feeling at home.
Sometimes (even pretend that) is not possible, but others will become great friends.
To all we are grateful, my daughter Maria and I, she is my wonderful great help in this task.
And we want to offer every body more than our home, our hospitality.

Nos gusta nuestra casa y las personas que deciden quedarse aquí, nos esforzamos con agrado para hacer sentir a nuestros huespedes en casa, unas veces no podemos conseguirlo y otras hacemos grandes amigos.
A todos estamos muy agradecidas, mi hija María y yo, ella es mi gran ayuda en esta maravillosa tarea. Y les esperamos para ofrecerles nuestra casa y nuestra hospitalidad.
