The house is in a private street. It is quiet, there is
lots of light and normally there are many flowers.

Estrella House

Accommodation in Granada

The Estrella house is now closed.

If the Estrella has been recomended to you the best choice is the Boabdil house in the same street which is even better and has views of the Alhambra.

At many times of the year there is a display of Petunias
and African Marigolds outside the house.

The Estrella house was open from Feb 2002 until Feb 2007...

Comments of former guests and more photos


Guest PH. Age 60ish from Bristol UK, She was here for 2 weeks and came to visit her son who was studying Spanish.

Thank you very much for my stay here. I have enjoyed it! Your apartment is great. There was everything needed from salt and pepper to kitchen roll, washing powder and loo paper (and also the washing machine and computer) - it makes such a difference not having to go out and buy the essentials straight away. The apartment is also comfortably furnished in a beautiful area of the town,
Thank you and good luck with the Estrella. PH.

Guest Jennifer. Age 25, She was here for 6 days. She left her sunglasses and we sent them back to her.

...... Thanks for my sunglasses. We had a wonderful stay at your house, I hope to come back some day.

Subject: Granada Feedback

Name: Shirley Bassey
From: Oxford England

Stayed at: Estrella Apartment

Would you stay again? Yes, without hesitation.

Complaints: No complaints at all - I didn't expect it be so good.

Things liked: Even though the house is only a few minutes walk to the centre it is really peaceful and like being in the country. Having the computer and being able to keep in contact with my family was good. With some help from John I was able to buy my return bus-ticket to Malaga which made things easier. A nice surprise was that the kitchen had Tetley teabags, kettle and a teapot which although normal in England is never normally found in Spain. Although it says that we ought to park in the underground car-park I left mine in the Camino de Sacromonte and it was OK.

Good bars etc: My favourite restaurante was the Higuera at the end of Plaza Fatima. There is a really nice garden bar and the prices are excellent.

Bad things: I went to San Miguel Bajo to eat and it took over an hour for them to bring the food. That was in the Acebuche. I advise you to eat in one of the other restaurants. The bar Lara is good.

Do you give us permission to use your comments. Yes, but give me a false name

These were the comments of John and Judy from near Norwich UK who stayed at the Estrella for 14 nights starting 13/06/2006.

Estrella … rulz OK. You have struck gold. You are in the Albaicín, and a very short walk from Granada central. The apartment is clean, and very well-equipped. There is:

Enough cooking utensils/pans etc to do a three course meal for 4, cafetiere, fridge.

Iron + ironing board

Hair drier

Towels and bedding provided.

Books to read in case you forgot.

Videos + player (unit in TV) (video shop at top of Chapiz near Spar)

Computer incl DVD player (more about that under computer)

Washing machine, and small washing line outside.

Heater (!)

mega fan (no aircon, but the house is quite cool anyway)

…so more than you would usually expect.

Also bars on all windows and double lockable door, plus lockable gate at bottom of alley. This place is secure.

This photo was taken at 5am on 10th January 2003. It was the first time that snow had fell in sufficient quantity to stay on the ground since 1987.

The cold spell was not a problem for the guests because of the electric oil-filled radiators.

The metal bars on the windows are called "rejas" pronounced "rekass". All windows in Spain have rejas.

The area around the house is safe to walk around in and you can come and go at any time of day or night without problem.

The Sacromonte is becoming yuppified and the price of real-estate is ridiculously expensive. There is a house for sale behind this one for 1 million euros.

The name of the neighbourhood comes from the Sacromonte Abbey which is a few minutes walk from the house. There is a museum and the area has a great tradition of flamenco and cave dwellers. The local rock is ideal for making caves.
