Guadalupe Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

This hotel is a great choice for a number of reasons. It is right next to the Alhambra, for starters, but less expensive than the other choices (we paid less than 100 euro/night). The room was lovely, the restaurant excellent and a bargain, and the whole hotel experience top notch. We liked to walk to the old town, which is a mile or so, but those preferring to avoid the uphill walk home can take a city bus that runs frequently. You really should stay here!
I have been to this hotel last year. This time it was for my 26th birthday. First of all I would like to say that the staff are very friendly and hospitable. However my room 408, was unusually hot. I turned on the AC unit that is built into the ceiling. But it had no effect on both nights I had it on the lowest setting 10 and not very good sleeps. I mentioned it to reception after the first night and the receptionist said he would have a look at it. The second night I had to have the doors and window open for 40 mins before it was normal temperature. That was at 3:00-3:40. However, when I told the reception again in the morning. A different receptionist was very helpful and gave us (my parents' and I) 3 free drinks. Also her apologies.I didn't raise the issue of barely or non existent WiFi in the hotel rooms. When I did get a signal it kept cutting out on my phone and my laptop had non or very little. My suggestion would be to replace all the air-conditioning units in the hotel. Also get a stronger bandwidth of WiFi.
First impressions were good. After one night we realise some faults ... Short, small beds, tatty towels, vert tatty towels. Hand towel size isn't good. Wifi failed. Hairdryer badly repaired. Smelly loos. The location is perfect for the Alhambra however. You need to remember parking is 15.75 per day
A slightly old fashioned hotel v close to the Alhambra, but a stiff walk back up from the Albaizin and other night spots. No A/C in the room so we had to open window to stay cool at night, bringing in noises of traffic outside. Bathroom fittings not the newest: generally adequate though hot water temperature tended to fluctuate a lot. Informed by other reviews we only ate breakfast there one day. The breakfast buffet selection is ok but the Nestlé coffee machines were not what I would expect. Staff were friendly, but not very enterprising. E.g. a receptionist told me she had no idea where we could hire a car.
We only had lunch there after our Alhambra visit. It was a correct place to eat a Spanish menu. 12 Euro for 3 course Spanish lunch. Much better than many other places. Don't get scared by the entrance, through the hotel reception. It's really ok
Stayed here for 3 nights in a single room. It was a really nice room with a small balcony and even had a view of the Alhambra! The room was clean, well appointed and the bathroom and shower were amazing. Only issue is that all round the rim of the door light shone in from the hallway all night. The area was nice and it's a lovely 10-15 minute walk downhill into town. Getting back is another story and after dark I would advise getting the bus (as the walk from the centre is through quiet gardens with steps etc.) which goes every 8 minutes. Be aware that there is very little (shops,bars, restaurants etc.) in the immediate vicinity of the hotel and those that were seemed to be only open for lunch and not in the evening. The location is of course unbeatable for the Alhambra. WiFi does not work at all in the bedrooms, only in reception, but there is a bar downstairs where you can sit. The concierge/reception man is super helpful and helped me out a lot!
Stayed here because we wanted to be close to the Alhambra. Beautiful view from our balcony, great value for the room and view. We walked down to town and go a taxi back to the hotel. They will keep your luggage the day you check out which was awesome.
We choose to stay at the hotel because it is probably the closest one can get to the Alhambra. The entrance to the Alhambra is just across the road. As we had a booked an early tour in order to avoid the crowds, this gave us plenty of time in the morning to have a leisurely breakfast. We had asked for a quiet room and were given room 402. It was a lovely big room, with a view over the back and side of the Alhambra and the farmland around. Faced west so we got the evening sun. It was very quiet room so we were very pleased. The bathroom was huge, with a rain shower and Jacuzzi bath a bidet, a hairdryer and the usual cosmetics. The hotel is quite a large one with large bar on the ground floor. And a large dining room on the first floor. The staff were friendly, but seemed to be somewhat frazzled. I could see no reason for this as everything seemed to go smoothly. A couple of things were disturbing. One was the fact that although therewas Internet all over the building, it just didn't work well. If you could get a signal, which was rare, then it kept dropping. The other thing was more of a personal preference. The duvet was a heavy one and was tucked in completely all round the bed. I like to be able to move more freely and prefer a lighter weight duvet. However there were a couple of blankets in the cupboard and I took off the duvet and used the blankets. One thing which I would like to see is a kettle in the rooms, but it didn't appear to be customary.
It was clean, and immediately across the street from the entrance. We had a problem with the wi-fi working and in an effort to work with us, adjusted the final cost. The hotel is run by good people, working hard.
Amazing location, right next to Alhambra, walk down the park to the city center is also a great advantage. Stay here for 2 days max and dedicate your visit to Alhambra - Wifi is none functional except in the lobby. - Most double rooms are overlooking the back of the hotel, no view, also very noisy generators at the back. - Parking costs 16.5 euro per day, preferred rate by hotel is a 2 euro discount.
