Great Alhambra location

Next to the Alhambra in Granada. Just don't be confused by the two locations given in Mapquest. Call if you have any questions about how to get there.

Great Location

The staff is wonderful and helpful. The breakfast is not the best I have had in Spain, but very good! The location could not be better! The only bad thing I can say is that I had some trouble with the WiFi. It worked most of the time, but would stop randomly.

Great hotel

This is a wonderful hotel if you don't mind walking up and down slopes to downtown. It's quite close to the Alhambra and the east side of Granada, and in relatively close proximity to most of the sights to see. The hotel was really clean and tastefully decorated, and the staff at the reception desk were very helpful. They could speak English but reply in Spanish when they can tell you want some more experience with Spanish. They're also very helpful. The hotel is located in a very scenic part of Granada as well - surrounded by trees and mountains, and is away from the hustle and bustle of the city (although is within walking distance from downtown). I really enjoyed staying in this hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

When you walk from the hotel toward downtown, there's a small pathway to the right called the Cuenta de los Chinos. It's a beautiful pathway that leads to two outdoor restaurants that face Alhambra (we ate at the Bar de la fuenta, listening to flute players and looking at the Alhambra lit up at night). It's breathtakingly beautiful and highly recommended.

Great atmosphere and excellent service.

Walking distance to the Alhambra (if you are planning on visiting Alhambra, make sure you buy the tickets before you get there as you might run in the problem on finding the tickets are sold out). Excellent service. If you get tired of the spaniard food which I doubt you will, you can always get a pizza delivered to your room, we did that one night and it was very good. Bring comfortable shoes as you will walk a lot especially up and down hills. Transportation from hotel to the center of town is very easy as you will find a bus stop within walking distance from the hotel. The only thing I didn't like that much was the bed, not that comfortable, but then, that is the same way for most of the old towns in Spain. Don't expect a bed that you will find even in a 3 stars US hotels.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

While in Spain, if you ask for the "Menu del Dia" (Today's Menu), you can save a lot of money and that includes 2 dishes, bread, dessert, and most of the time one drink. The food from the "menu del dia" is very good. We've been in Spain for 2 weeks now and I have to say that we have save lot of money that way and from all the Menu del Dia we have ate, I can only say that only one was not acceptable. :)

Too touristy, would not stay there again

If you like big busses in front of your hotel all the time, a very expensive place to park your car, the smell of sewage in your room and a hotel away from everything BUT the alhambra, this hotel is for you. It looks great online, but if you have a desire to see real spain this is NOT your hotel. Everything you do there is extra money. Parking cost over $20 per night. Traveling into town is usually a 20 minute commute. Do yourself a favor: Get a nice hotel in Granada (which is a beautiful city) and spend money ONE TIME on the easy bus to the Alhambra.

Take the shuttle into Granda instead of a taxi ride. 1.50 Euros for round trip vs. 7 Euro one way for taxi. Shuttle 30 and 33 take you from Alhambra entrance to the middle of downtown Granada.

Nice hotel across from Alhambra

The hotel is literally across from Alhambra - which is great if that's your main reason for visit. However it's a bit of a hike to center of Granada. Goign to the center is all downhill so not a big deal - 15-20minutes. Coming back you will need to grab a taxi ~10 euro. The rooms are big and clean, there is a small but nice pool, and the location is very quiet. The staff spoke English very well and were helpful. There is free WiFi in the hotel but if you don't have a computer there is a computer in the lobby which is NOT free.
