stayed here couple of nights. very close to the main attraction of Alhambra. 10 min walk to Alcazaba. parking available, basically you just use Alhambra's parking lot. I just kept my car there, obviously you have to pay but very close to the hotel so convenience over price. But this place is little farther than Albaicin neighborhood and the city center and all other restaurants etc. so you decision is basically do you want to stay near Alhambra (then this is a great place) or you want to stay near bars, restaurants or beautiful albaicin neighborhood (then don't stay here). But my stay was very comfortable. great service great staff. bar and restaurant dowstairs was good. good space to hang out in the evening with beer or wine or ordreing coffee pizza etc. it served the purpose. overall happy with the location and services.

This place was the best place to stay or a visit to Alhambra. My only negative would be the food. We had the buffet one night and it was ok. Nothing stood out and the same with breakfast.

The hotel has a nice location,walking distance from Alhambra. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was good.

Great location for Alhambra. Hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly.

Nice hotel. Walking distance from Alhambra. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Hotel location is next to the Alhambra and the green pastures and that is its main asset. Hotel staff need to improve in their language skills and be friendlier to guests. Rooms are very spacious but have very thin walls - the hotel is quite dated. We had no big issues so the hotel "did the job" but we were not thrilled.

Hotel is a very short walk to the Alhambra. It is also convenient to buses to the city center. Restaurant was so so. We had breakfast & dinner at the hotel. Hotel guests were supposed to get a discount on parking, but that wasn't true for us. Parking was very expensive.

close to the Alhambra. Good hotel for the price. shuttle into the old town was right down the street.

Hotel location is great and staff was helpful! Very comfortable stay

This is an older hotel that is directly across from the main entrance to The Alhambra. For a short stay it is a very good pick!

We booked this for the proximity to the Alhambra, which is mere minutes away. I was not aware, but they offer valet parking for 15.50 euros/24 hours which is very convenient. The buffet breakfast was 8 euros and has a wide selection to get you ready for a day of sightseeing. Our room was ready when we arrived but lacked towels; I was told it would be 30 minutes and it was actually more like an hour before they brought the full complement... but by that time I had tracked down a housekeeper who at least gave me one.

Good location for Alhambra. Air conditioning not great. Room needed updating. Nice pool.

TERRIBLE location if you are renting a car! We had to PAY a tourist guide from the Department of Tourism 10 Euros so that he could escort us while on his motorcycle!

Could pass as a 4-star hotel in an excellent tourist location, at the very gate of the Alhambra. But the management is limited, the restaurant awful, and there are not many people around to help. Pity the rooftop pool is tawdry and unheated. The place is really OK for an out of town resort, cheap too.

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.

Alhambra's entry is a short 5 minute walk from alixares which is important as is better to buy the ticket in the early morning. People start doing the line at 7 am though alhambra opens at 8 am. They have buffet for the 3 meals at a good price. You can leave your bags there if you have check out and pick them up later. A taxi to the renfe station was 8 euros.

cute rooms. windows that open. plenty of parking. little fridges to cool drinks. The location is fantastic. it's about 50 - 75 yards to the Alhambra entrance. There's also a fantastic pizza joint just down the street. The pool is great as well. Rooms are shaped differently, but we had a great time staying there. Just park the car and walk to the Alhambra. Also take the public bus straight into old town Granada for the sights.

Both the bedroom and bathroom were small and basic, but the location is a great base for visiting the Alhambra and the city of Granada for a short stay.

The hotel is pleasant and near the Alhambra but it is quite a distance from central Granada and the other attractions. The buffet meals were adequate but not fancy. One of our two rooms was spoiled by a smell of sewage. I think the was a leak in the drain line.

Cool hotel away from downtown. great location overall. easy parking. would stay there again. rooms where clean and staff was friendly. nothing bad to say.
