Granada Apartment San José 12-1

Rent vacation apartment in Granada San José Alta Street Granada

San José 12-1 | Duplex with outdoor seating and parking

Bright and modern one-bedroom duplex apartment set in a recently restored, traditional building with a lovely arcaded courtyard in the Albaicín.

The interiors are of an exceptionally high quality finish and are decorated in an uncluttered, contemporary style with neutral colours and wood features. The apartment entrance is found in the arcaded interior courtyard of the house, where there is a fountain, and many trees and plants. The apartment has its own outdoor seating area by the front door.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes an oven, dishwasher and a washing machine. The dining space can seat four, and an opaque glass partition partially separates it from the living-room, furnished with a double sofa-bed and a desk.

A modern wooden staircase leads up to the double bedroom, which has a large built-in wardrobe; and en-suite bathroom complete with hydro-massage shower.

The apartment has central hot/cold air conditioning, double-glazing and under-floor heating.

Our recommendation: The apartment entrance door gives directly onto the plant-filled inner courtyard and makes a pleasant spot for sitting outside. There is a lovely view from the bedroom window, which overlooks the courtyard and beyond it, the rooftops of Granada can be seen. Have a look at the apartment video.

Please note: The bathroom accessed via the bedroom, therefore we recommend use of the sofabed for family only.

Garage parking: There is a parking space available (see "Conditions"). An invaluable service for guests travelling by car, as many areas in the old Albaicín quarter are restricted to traffic.

Location of apartment San José 12-1

Location of apartment Albaicín

The Albaicín is a colourful and charming traditional neighbourhood set in the very heart of Granada. Made up of a network of winding streets and small squares rising up on a hill facing the Alhambra, the area is bordered by the Darro River and by the commercial centre of the city.

Once the site of the Moorish citadel, the Alcazaba, the area still retains a sense of its past in its architecture - many of the churches were built on the foundations of mosques. Today, parts of the Albaicín have taken on a distinctly North African feel with many tearooms and small shops selling Morroccan goods.

Wander through the streets and you'll find wonderful views, a wide variety of restaurants and many terrace bars - where you get a free tapa with your drink as is the custom in Granada.  For the best view in town, head for the lively Mirador de San Nicolás where you can contemplate the whole of the Alhambra with the peaks of Sierra Nevada as a backdrop. As the poet said, "Give him charity, girl, as there is nothing worse in life than being blind in Granada"!


  • View of the Alhambra from the Mirador de San Nicolás
  • Casa de Castril, the archaeological museum
  • Arab Baths - both historic remains and a modern version
  • Churches and Moorish city gates

"Nice apartment downtown Granada"

Review for a stay in May 2016 - Leon, Amsterdam (Netherlands)

It is a nice and clean apartment in the heart of Granada. Everything is available, except international tv channels.
You have to be a good driver to drive through the narrow streets to the apartment building.

"Appartamento con tutti i confort nel centro di Granada Albaicin"

Review for a stay in Aug 2015 - Paolo, Roma (Italy)

Un appartamento con tutte le comodità incluso un parcheggio coperto, nel centro storico di Granada, Albaicin. Le stradine sono piccole e strette ma seguendo le istruzioni dettagliate del gestore si riesce arrivare facilmente con la macchina lasciarla nel garage e dedicarsi pienamente alla città. Noi siamo andati a piedi alla Alhambra in 20 minuti. Da consigliare.

"We loved the appartment and the location"

Review for a stay in Jul 2015 - Aina, Oslo (Norway)

The appartment was very nice for our family of four. A 3 year and 7 year old. We could walk to a lot of restaurants, and to live in the middle of the old town was beautiful as we love to take pictures. The reception was very helpful with everything. It was unusually hot now in July, but so was it for the local people. Since we had small children we took a lot of taxi, but its possible to take the bus everywhere. We would love to stay there again.

"Convenient apartment in a great neighborhood with nice patio "

Review for a stay in Jun 2015 - Anonymous, Amsterdam (Netherlands)

Spacious apartment, convenient located in Albazcin neighbourhood, most in walking distance or easy in reach with bus or train. Prepare for lot of walking, I guess its the best way to get to know the city though.
The apartment was clean and the kitchen even had oven and microwave, but not enough cooking utensils. It is very easy to go out for breakfest, lunch and dinner, many eateries closeby. Although ok, the bathroom was very small relative to the rest of the apartment.

"El apartamento es muy comfortable y tranquilo, bien amueblado, bien situado en el Albaicín y el servicio por parte de los propietarios excelente. / Very comfortable and quiet apartment, very well located in El Albaicín and the owner was very helpful"

Review for a stay in Dec 2014 - Diana, Leiderdorp ()

El apartamento está situado en el Albaicín, a pocos minutos andando del centro de Granada, y tiene muy buenas vistas desde la plaza que hay enfrente. Tiene todo tipo de comodidades: aparcamiento, una cocina totalmente equipada en cuanto a electrodomesticos (nevera, lavaplatos, microondas...etc) e utensilios de cocina, una buena cama y un buen sofá, lavadora, calefaccion/aire acondicionado. Nos sentimos mejor que en casa.
El propietario nos dió un servicio excelente en relación al apartamento durante nuestra estancia, su nivel de inglés era perfecto y también nos dió todo tipo de consejos para visitar Granada.
Lo único que fué un poco problema es que sólo es posible llegar al apartamento siguiendo la navegación de google maps (no es posible con otros navegadores). El propietario nos facilitó las instrucciones para llegar via email y también via teléfono así que no tuvimos ningún problema. Lo único que estaría bien es que las instrucciones via email también estuvieran en inglés.

Nuestra estancia en el apartamento fue excelente.

The apartment is located in El Albaicín, a few minutes walking from the center of Granada, and it has all kind of commodities: parking garage, a very well equipped kitchen (microwave, dish-washer, fridge...etc, and all kind of kitchen utensils, as well as coffee, tea, milk). The bed and sofa are very comfortable, and the apartment has central heating/airco and washing machine.
The owner spoke excellent English, and gave us an excellent service. He also gave us very good touristic advice.
The only problem is that not all navigators can navigate you to the apartment (only google maps). The owner gave us very good navigation instructions via email and phone and we could easily find the apartment, however, it would be good if the email instructions would also be in English.

We had an excellent stay in this apartment and we definitely recommend it.
