Self-catering apartments are a particularly good option for families and groups of friends, but even for couples or single people they often work out as cheaply as a hotel of a similar standard, with the added benefit of allowing you to prepare your own meals. Bear in mind that there is often a minimum stay of two or three days.
If you’re planning to self-cater in Granada, we recommend Casita del Realejo in Calle Solares. It’s a small, beautifully decorated house on three floors. It has a great location in Realejo – quiet and with nice views, but close to all of the restaurants, bars and sights, including the Alhambra.
