About La Casa de Victor

 

The comfort of a hotel, the warmth of a home and the price of a hostel. That is what I am offering to you. I am a language teacher. I live in a cosy, comfortable flat right in the centre of Granada where I have my own classroom and a spare room for guests. I have been hosting students and travellers alike from all over the world since 2003 and on airbnb since 2012. This is not a business. It is a B&B as they used to be, and that means what it once used to mean, that is it: Staying at someone's home! Due to the coronavirus, I am taking extra steps to clean and sanitise frequently touched surfaces during and between reservations.

The Room

The room I have for you is spacious and bright. There is a comfortable double bed with viscoelastic-style memory foam mattress and pillows, a wardrobe, a dining table with two chairs and a fridge. There are tea and coffee-making facilities in your room (a kettle, mugs, spoons, dishes and free instant coffee & English breakfast tea. I will also provide with free orange juice, cream, yoghurt, croissants and cupcakes so that you can prepare yourself a little, free breakfast in the morning or have it anytime you want. You will have your own private bathroom. It is not ensuite but it is next to your room and will be only for you. The room has a fan for the summer and heating in winter and, of course, there is fast broadband WI-FI access 24 hours a day free of charge.

 

Privacy

Ah, privacy! One of the biggest concerns when we decide to stay at someone's home. Right? Okay, do not worry. There is no curfew here. You will have your own keys, and you can come and go when and as many times as you please. The guests' room and bathroom are located near the entrance separated from the rest of the flat's rooms. That means you will not need to go through any common areas to get to your room or bathroom. And if you leave early or arrive late, you will not disturb anyone and no one will disturb you because, and do not forget that, I only have a room for guests so there will not be any other people here (apart from me, of course) during your stay.

 

Location

From my place, you can walk to all the monuments, tapas bars and most emblematic places of Granada, including the Alhambra (30 minutes on foot) although it is worth noting that the Alhambra is perched on top of a hill and the slope is quite steep. A bus goes up the hill to the entrance of the Alhambra every five minutes.

Although the flat is in the centre, the room faces a narrow street with very little traffic and there is double-glazing in all windows, which isolates from the noise. However, on working days, motorcycles can be a bit annoying sometimes in the morning. In addition, Spanish people are noisy and they love partying so do not get surprised if you hear someone singing aloud in the street in the wee hours at the weekends.

 

Arrivals

This is not a hotel. Arrivals are by appointment. Inform of your means of transport and expected arrival time when you book and then to contact me again a few days before arrival to agree on an exact time for us to meet at the apartment to make sure I am home when you arrive.
