The Space

Nestled on top of one of the most charming neighborhoods of Granada, the Albaicin, this nice apartment is ideal to accommodate 2 to 7 people. It has fully fitted kitchen with oven, microwave and refrigerator new, laundry with washing machine, a sunny living room where you can lunch, two bedroom with a double bed each room, and the second one has a single bed, too. Bathroom. WIFI 10 GB. Air conditioned. Located just 5 minutes walk from the center of the Albaicin, the Plaza Larga and the Mirador de San Nicolas, where you can eat for very little money on one of the many restaurants available in the area, or enjoy one of the most delicious sweets in Casa Pasteles. 15 minutos walk from the center of Granada. In the opposite direction is also located 5 minutes, the pine forest of San Miguel Alto, which has wonderful views over Granada and the Alhambra. One minute from the nearest bus stop. Strolling through the Albaicin is a trip to Moorish roots and a pleasure for the senses. Walking a labyrinth of narrow streets scented with jasmine, see the gardens of the cármenes (its typical houses) or accompany an aromatic tea with a delicious pastry Arabic, are experiences that no visitor should miss. NO PARKING PROBLEMS.
30 minutes drive from Sierra Nevada, the best Ski stations in Spain with more skiable kilometers.

  • We had a very nice experience in Granada, and the apartment was perfect. Not too far from the center and well connected by bus. Comunication was very easy with Herminia and Fernando, and they even helped us to reach the house from the bus station. Hope to come back soon to this beautiful city, thank you for your hospitality.

  • This is a nice flat if you need the space, and Herminia and Fernando are very good hosts. The location is a bit up the hill, but once you get a sense of it, and the bus schedule, it's not very far. The apartment is clean and well put together.

  • We had a great stay in this apartment. It is in a great area above all if the wonderful winding streets that lead dorm to the main city and the Alhambra. The were plenty of cafes , bars and restaurants around and Herminia was kind enough to point out the areas to go on a map. We were able to walk everywhere although coming home was up a hill so a bus was available if needed.

    The apartment itself was nice , clean and comfortable.

  • Herminia was always answering my questions very efficiently and providing a lot of useful information. Fernando was very patient waiting and welcoming us in front of the apartment, even thought we were much later than we said. It is a comfortable place to stay. We could find anything we need in the apartment easily. The apartment is on the half way of a hill but quite close to the city. We were too tired for walking uphill from the city center and took a taxi, and it cost only around 6 euros. Overall, I would recommend anyone who visit Granada to stay in their apartment!

  • Herminia and Fernando were incredibly accommodating hosts. We didn't meet then until after our visit, when I realized I'd left my iPod in the apartment. A couple of frantic calls and emails to Herminia later, Fernando was combing the apartment to find it while Herminia served us cold beers in her garden.

    We enjoyed staying above Granada's city center, and being in walking distance to the Mirador San Nicolas overlooking the Alhambra. The apartment is simple, best, and tidy. The large living/dining room has the only AC unit, but blackout shades throughout the apartment make it possible to keep things cool.

  • This apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. It is in a very quiet area up above the city and although it feels very out of the way it is just 5 minutes walk from the Albaycin, which is definitely the place to be in Granada. Parking was very easy on the street, there is a bus into the city too, from very close by. We drove to the Alhambra but there seem to be a lot of buses going there as well. The only problem we had is that the air conditioning is in the lounge and didn't cool the bedrooms all that well due to its positioning.

  • The apartment is located on the very top outer edge of the Albaicin. Herminia sent is driving directions, and there was no problem getting there or parking on the street just in front of the apartment. The apartment is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, which is great for no street noise at night. It is well furnished, clean and attractive, with enough supplies of kitchen equipment, sheets, pillows, blankets, etc. to make everyone comfortable. Very good beds! Since we were two couples, we enjoyed having separate bedrooms, but with the joint living room to have time together. There was an initial problem with the hot water heater, but Herminia was in constant e-mail contact and sent Fernando to fix it immediately. She was also great in answering all of our questions very quickly. The apartment is located at the top of steep hills, so walking down through the Albaicin to the center of Granada was fine, but walking back would have been stressful. Luckily, Herminia told us that the #7 bus, which you can catch from the center of the city, comes up and will deposit you at a little plaza just 2 minutes away from the apartment. There is also a little grocery store on the next street over where we could get everything we needed for meals. We really enjoyed our stay and counted ourselves very lucky to have found this place with it's attentive hosts. Thank you, Herminia and Fernando!

    Thank you very much, JoAnn for your review. I'm glad you spent some happy moments in my apartment, and that you have enjoyed your stay in Granada. I am very concerned that my guests feel in my apartment like at home. It's been great having you as guests, I hope to see you again at another time. Greetings, Herminia and Fernando.

  • The apartment is spacious and a big bonus is that you can park outside for free. Easy to walk down into the Albayacin. Herminia was a good host who quickly dealt with any problems we had. We had no trouble finding the apartment or driving there. The apartment didn't feel quite as fresh or new as it looks in the photos, so maybe the photos are (website hidden) the couches were old and had holes in them and were covered with throws. Also the flat smelt slightly damp and where the gas bottle/water heater are kept there was a smell of gas which built up. There are things not shown on the photos like the bathroom door, which had a faulty lock, being covered in dents. Overall it felt like what could have been an amazing apartment had actually become a little run down and neglected.
