We came here the day we landed in Granada and it was so refreshing for tired tourists. Menus are bilingual - Spanish and English, there is wifi, and the food was great. The setting is beautiful as well. We highly recommend the goat cheese crostini!...More

I am not aware of any rented rooms at the Garden Cafe. For long term stays I would suggest contacting either GPS or the Vista Mombacho Apartments in Granada.
