Guadalupe Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for our one night stay in Granada. We booked the hotel at such an affordable rate we were nervous that it would not look like the pictures (it seemed too good to be true). We were pleasantly surprised, the hotel was extremely clean, rooms renovated and the bathroom was very large. Not only was the hotel itself lovely but it was perfectly located, only 600m away from the Alhambra and a short downhill picturesque walk away from wonderful bars and restaurants (GO TO BAR RIVIERA & LOS DIAMANTES, AMAZING!!). Jorge was the gentleman who checked us into our hotel and out when we left. He was very warm and kind and you could tell he was someone who took great pride in his work. When I was waiting in line to check out a tour guide was being incredibly disrespectful to him (I can understand Spanish but not speak it very well) and blaming him for the hotel being located on a slope where her retiree clients would have trouble getting off the bus. It is beyond me how this was the fault of the hotel or Jorge, given that tour guides have choices of hotels to stay at and simply should have not chosen this one if the location was not suitable to the needs of their clients. I felt compelled to leave this review to commend Jorge for remaining calm and polite through the myriad of high pitched insults he received from this woman. After the angered woman left my boyfriend and I made sure to thoroughly thank Jorge for his amazing service and to let him know that we loved our stay at the hotel. This hotel and Granada will always hold a special places in our hearts.
There are many places to choose from in Granada and I am so happy that we stumbled across Guadalupe Hotel. Clean! Charming! Friendly! We arrived late and it was so nice to be greeted by the friendly bartender. The desk attendant was quick to tell us the walking and bus routes without being asked. We chose a room with a larger bed. The room is small by North America standards but it is typical of what we see in Europe. It has been beautifully renovated and was perfectly clean. I would be happy to recommend the hotel to my friends and family.
Our expectations were not high for this hotel because it was reasonable. However, this hotel was quite exceptional. Our only activity when we were in Granada was to visit La Alhambra and it was directly across the street. If you were exploring the town it may not have been quite as perfect but there is a bus right there. They also got us tickets to La Alhambra when we were unable to get them on the website. Bedroom was roomy and quite lovely. Rather than go search someplace out we ate at the restaurant at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised here as well with the Gazpacho, tomato appetizer and sangria being great. My swordfish was a little drier than I liked, but still pretty good. All in all, highly recommend.
Great location, Quiet room, very clean, nice restaurants. Rick Steve's states that it's a 30 min. walk to sites in Granada. It's an easy & lovely 15 min. walk. Very nice unless your legs don't work well. Plus, they provide help getting tickets for La Alhambra. Receptionists are helpful too.
We stayed in a lovely room on the 4th floor with a balcony for 3 nights. We toured the Alhambra one day and enjoyed the free museum on the second day. The hotel is steps away from the entrance. We walked to town multiple times and also took the bus (especially helpful on the way back up the hill). The bus was super convenient. A continental breakfast was included but not the full buffet. The staff were very helpful and the laundry service was good. We had a car, and it was very convenient to park in the Alhambra lot (only a short distance to the hotel). I wouldn't advise driving in town.
We highly recommend this hotel. If you are visiting Alhambra, the location is absolutely perfect. The bar was very comfortable, and the waiter gave us loads of tapas. The breakfast was very good. The rooms were large and clean. We had not managed to get tickets for Alhambra online, but two days before we arrived, the staff arranged tickets for us. Parking is just across the road, and easily accessible. The rate was excellent. Brilliant hotel!
Very nice hotel in a nice location, right next to the Alhambra with easy parking in the Alhambra parking along with hotel discount. Think it was about $30 for 2 days. Good bed, Good linens and towels, quiet - all things we like. Also we liked being out of the center of town but had the ease of the bus to and from. our only complaint is that the typically small European bathroom the put in a gigantic sink right opposite the toilet so that it was hard to get on and off. If one were heavy it could be a real issue. Then, as many hotels are now doing, the had a half glass swinging door for the tub/shower. Due to the bathroom configuration it would only swing in and you had to step over the toilet and skinny around the glass door to get into the tub/shower. A shower curtain would be much better. So, bathroom gets and F for design, which was some architects doing I'm sure, but the quiet, cleanliness, location, bed etc get an A. Oh the other thing, breakfast isn't worth the cost - go to the sweet place just a couple of doors down and up the stairs for an nice outdoor setting.
Nice hotel. Clean. Quiet. Staff very helpful. Great balcony. Breakfast was good value. Did not know there was a mini bar in the room until check out. Close proximity to bus to Plaza Nueva. Distance from airport.
Excellent and friendly staff! Only negative was that the beds were hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise best price for convenient location! I would still recommend this hotel if you don’t like to drive in Spain and want the convenience of making the start time for The Alhambra!
It was just a minute to the entrance of Alhambra. A good room for a short stay. But no view from the window of our room. However, a way from the city. Down is not a problem but for return, take the bus.
