About this listing
Welcome to the Caves cave house colors. A cave is a special place to live for their ideal temperature, their silence and the feeling of returning to the sources with all the comforts of the present times. Located in the Albaicín heritage of humanity by its incredible historical value and very close neighborhood Sacromente, peculiar to be a neighborhood of caves and flamenco, also found near the Mirador de San Nicolas and the center of the city.
You will take a break from Granada's heat in this very nice and quite private bunk beds inside a cave. I've had many guests that were curious about the cave and after staying in the bunk beds, fell completely in love with it. The bathroom is front of it. You can have access and enjoy the sofas in the apartament and the common zones.
On the top of the cave many little terraces to enjoy the sunsets and the astonishing views of Granada. 18º Celsius temperature inside the cave, we have heaters as well.
weekends 25 euros per night. Friday ans Saturday, eastern time
Quedarme en el alojamiengo ofrecido por Olga fue una experiencia fantastica!!Olga es una hermosa persona, muy amable, amistosa y atenta. Alojar en la cueva fue muy divertido, esun lugar muy agardable, con una vista preciosa a la Alhambra. Disfrute mucho tambien las conversaciones con Olga, asi como tambien sus sugerencias respecto de mi visita a Granada. Agradezco mucho haber tenido esta oportunidad.
What a lovely place, what a lovely lady! The cave is very cozy (you'll have a hard time believing a donkey once lived here!), and Olga is a warm and accommodating host. I can highly recommend.
The view of the Alhambra from the patio is amazing!
During hot days, it's pleasant to be in the cave!!!
The Albaicin area is very nice.
Epic. What a unique place to stay. The cave-dwelling is amazing but what really steals the show is the 3rd floor private terrace with a view of Alhambra.
A truly magical setting.
The house is clean. The bathroom and shower, in the cave, is fantastic. The cave-area stays cold even when it's blazing hot outside.
Olga is a FANTASTIC host. Bubbly. Laid-back. A fantastic conversationalist.
I high recommend booking this place. It's a bit of a steep walk to get to the house but it's more than worth it. It's a place I'll never forget and I wish I could've stayed longer. Amazing.
Thanks again Olga!
I m so fortunate to have met Olga! She went to all the troubles to help me get the Alhambra ticket and though we only spent little time together we had nice conversation and she introduced me great things to see in Granada !
Needless to mention the perfect cave which I m so lucky to enjoy the room! It s so cool in the hot days and oh the perfect view on the terrace ! If you want to have the best experience in Granada don't hesitate to stay in Olga's cave!!! :D
Olga greeted me well~ She was waiting for me at her cave, and she let me use a private room instead of my reservation of banquet. (Cause there were nobody but me on that day) there are 3 balconies with great views. At first it was a little bit hard to find the place, but finally I found it. She gave me many informations of Granada and also about Barcelona where she came from.
you could feel a little bit afraid of neighborhood at first time, but Olga told me that her neighbors are nice. And place San Nicolas is very close from her place. Just 10mins by walk. Anyway it could be hard if you are carrying a large baggage or not comfortable with walking on stairs.
Recommends for new experience~!
First, about Olga's cave. It is a little hard to get to, and when I was first looking for her cave, I was wondering if I had made the wrong decision because it was a bit of a climb up. On your way to her cave, you'll go from quite normal-looking houses, to walking on a sandy path, and above her cave, I'm told there are hippie communities with horses and caves which they have artificially carved themselves. Her cave is quite high up but is still near Plaza Aliatar, which had parties going on in the nights which I was there. But when I got to her cave - all my doubts were quickly dispelled. The views from her terrace are magnificent, and as it was raining (and due to the natural condition of the cave), it felt a little moist but it really was still very comfortable. For solo travellers, Olga also has a little locker right next to your cave bunk bed, so your belongings are really safe! Olga also gave me duvets to ensure I was warm. I had a fantastic night's sleep and really enjoyed the experience, which was really lovely and peaceful.
I use AirBnB frequently and as a journalist, I'm quite a skeptic, particularly when people write about hosts being lovely and super friendly because I have not met many whom I think are really invested in sharing their homes with you. Olga, to me, really stands out as an AirBnB host.
Like many who have stayed with Olga, I was completely bowled over by her warmth and her exuberant loveliness. When she was explaining directions to her cave, she was incredibly patient and I could tell that she was really trying to help me understand the possible routes I could take. She called for a taxi for me to get to the Alhambra quickly, and fed me with the most delicious cakes (yes, plural! the best carrot and coconut cake I've ever had), and had the most fun travel stories to share. Having lived in Beijing for a year before moving to Europe, the last negative review I believe is a bit of a mismatch in cultural expectations. The cave is as shown in photos, and the entire place was cosy and clean. I thought Olga's cave was lovely, I think Olga is absolutely wonderful (she was responsive and accommodating to a spontaneous, single traveller like myself), and this was the loveliest stay that I had in Spain.
