Perfection. Perfect apartment in a perfect location with perfect service.
We could not have been happier with the Art Chapiz apartment. It is located on an easily accessible and convenient location of the Albayzin (by foot, not car...nothing in the Albayzin is convenient in a car). There are views of the Alhambra from the living area and the decor is beautiful. You can walk down Cuesta del Chapiz and be in Plaza Nueva for tapas in no time, or you can walk up the hills to the Mirador de San Nicolas for amazing views of the city and the Alhambra, or for any of the Albayzin's numerous restaurants. Jamie was very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable about Granada (Lemon Rock Bar was a great recommendation!). We highly recommend staying at Art Chapiz Apartment when you are in the area.
Samir and Ashley were great guests to recieve and we loved having them!Thank you so much for your kind words and we look forward to having you return in the future!
Roberto and Jamie
Lovely apartment in excellent location.
Only a short walk to the Alhambra and in a convenient location in Albaycin. We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment is well equipped and modern. The parking is very close and a welcome feature.
Would definitely rent it again and highly recommend it.
Our host Jaime was very great with helping us navigate to the apartment! Having the secured underground parking was also convenient and welcome.
Great property, great location, great host
Jamie was very helpful. She met us at the apartment to check us in and answer any of our questions. She provided a bunch of recommendations for restaurants and attractions. The property was great too and had everything we needed. The location is partway up the hill, but still close enough to walk to Plaza Nueva and all the restaurants. We enjoyed our stay in the apartment and Granada.
Thanks Garth for your words. It was a pleasure, as always!!! Glad you guys enjoy your time in Granada.
Dream Accommodations in a Lovely City
This apartment is absolutely gorgeous in a completely wonderful location in a charming city, but what makes this apartment a dream is the service. Jamie, who helps Roberto in managing this property, is incredible. She recommended restaurants, helped us when we got lost, brought local wines for us to purchase to the flat, and was available as a reference our whole trip. I felt entirely taken care of from the first email communication.
Now for the apartment: the view of the Alhambra out of the living room window is delightful, the apartment is very clean and comfortable with so much natural light. All of the furniture and bedding was very nice, and the walls are decorated with Roberto's artwork which was a fantastic touch. The kitchens well stocked. There is not an oven. We did not find this to be a problem between the microwave, toaster, and hob, plus you are in Granada! Go eat Tapas! There were plenty of places near the apartment to eat and shop, or you could go down the hill for even more options. The noise on the street is a bit loud on the weekend, but we did not find it bad any other nights we were staying. This is more a Granada thing than an apartment problem. The apartment was a dream!
If you choose to use their parking spot, use the directions that they send ahead of time. Turn the GPS on your phone off when you reach the first part of their directions and do it the old fashion way. Do not let other drivers on the small streets intimidate you. If you follow the directions, you will have not problem. The parking spot is near by and secure.
If we return to Granada, we will absolutely be returning to Art Chapiz. It fit our family of four adults comfortably. It was the perfect point to explore from, but even more delightful as a place of rest after a long day! Do yourself a favor, come to Granada, and stay here. And talk to Jamie. She was the best.
Thank you for your lovely review! It was a pleasure to host you and your family and we would love to have you come back any time! Thanks again!
Perfect place for 3 or 4 guests
We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Communication with Jamie was fantastic in advance of our stay. She realized we had picked an arrival date with some road restrictions and worked out a plan B which prevented what would have been a nightmare without her intervention. The apartment itself is very clean and modern. The front bedroom is on the street but the window is quite soundproofing. Combine that with a private A/C/heating unit for the room with its associated low fan hum and outside noise was not an issue during our stay. Alhambra is just a 15 minute walk away and the old town is at your doorstep.
We loved having you and your family during Kings day! We hope you come back soon and send your friends! !!
