Why is granadainfo.com a very good place to book apartments in Granada?
Our most important qualities are honesty, straight dealing and trustworthyness. We personally know all the places. None of the photos are taken by professional photographers. We take the photos ourselves with a normal camera with no special lighting and the objective is to show the apartments as they really are.
We don't advertise a very low price per night which is never actually possible. All prices have all taxes and extras included so no surprises. Any negative aspects of any place are always mentioned, eg on a hill, too many steps, not really in the centre etc. There are no call centres. Anyone who answers the phone at granadainfo speaks English perfectly, has at least 24 years experience of living in Granada and at least 12 years of experience helping people with any aspect of visiting Granada. Any problem that needs to be dealt with will get immediate attention and fast resolution. We have the widest range of apartments of all types and prices. Granadainfo is like the type of hardware store that almost no longer exists because they have been run out of business by massive supermarket hardware stores. Do you remember when you could go to a shop and ask the advice of the shopkeeper who was an expert on what he was selling? Then after the purchase if anything went wrong you can actually speak to another human being in English who will be responsible for sorting out the problem - That is very much like granadainfo except as well as offering a good service we also offer the best prices, the best selection and the most useful information.
Is your apartment available?
All apartment pages have an availability link which shows the
current availability or just fill in the form on the page and press the
I don't speak Spanish is it a
To book and stay at the apartments you don't need to speak
a word of Spanish, there are normally at least 2 native English
speakers ready to help you on a fixed line and two mobiles. Not speaking
not an issue, however, your stay will be more enjoyable if you
can speak a bit of Spanish.
Almost all the user comments are very good. Are they edited?
When a bad comment comes in we investigate the problem and solve it. For example if we receive a comment about a dripping tap we will immediately get a plumber to fix the tap. Then once the problem has been fixed we would remove the complaint about the tap. We use the comments of the guests as a method of improving the quality of the apartments and as a way to drive continual improvement. If a place has problems which reoccur and are not rectified we stop working with them. Only places with a high standard of professional and customer service are allowed to be on granadainfo.com. This policy leads to a form of evolution in which only the best places survive.
Which apartments have the best price-quality ratio?
The prices of apartments are about 20% lower than they were 3 or 4 years ago. This is due to the economic crisis. We have a price comparison system which finds the average price of existing reservations according to how many people and how many nights. Click here to see it. For stays of a week or more there are very good prices at Julia or Ruben Some of the lowest prices for short stays are at Zafra. 50 euros per night at central is a bargain.
When can I enter the accomodation?
Generally speaking if nobody was in you room/apartment the night
before you can enter at anytime. If there was someone in you room the night
before, the people in it have a right to be there until 12 noon, then it
has to be
Apartments generally don't have a place where you can leave your stuff
so you may have to wait around a bit having a coffee on a teraza or something.

No matter how complicated your question we will find the answer just
and we will find the answer. You can also find a lot of answers on this forum about Granada. granadaforo.com
We have a baby which is the best place?
We usually recommend Puerta Real because,
a baby cot is provided free, you can put the baby buggy in the lift,
the area is fairly flat, there are lots of shops
very nearby, there is a taxi rank nearby, it is easy to get around.
How do I buy tickets for the Alhambra?
I strongly advise you to buy tickets in advance. Use this
page to find out how.
How far is the Alhambra from the
Granada is not a big city. The Alhambra is on a hill overlooking
Granada. All apartments are fairly near to the Alhambra. It would be a
mistake to choose an apartment just because it is nearer to the Alhambra.
What about parking?
There is an excellent a place called Palmera which has its own parking, you will have to book a long way in advance because it is popular. Most apartments and hotels don't have their own parking
places but there are numerous public underground parking
spaces. The ones right in the centre can cost as much as 30 euros
per day. This is why we reccommend Severa
Ochoa which is 41 euros per week info
It is best to get a taxi from the parking to the accommodation on
arrival. We always supply
arrival instructions so that your arrival is as
is only useful
to the beach or to the mountains. Here are some notes for
car drivers. To see exact information on all the public car parks in Granada click here.
