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.
Although the Hotel is perfectly located for a visit to the Alhambra it is slightly outdated and in need of refurbishment. Very tiny bathroom with a noisy fan, room 409. The city center is indeed a short walk from the hotel, downhill. The return is obviously a different story! The breakfast was not up to par.
If you book a early ticket for Alhambra tour, this is the perfect hotel. It is a very short walking distance to the main entrance. The hotel is located along the main street so that taxi is easily reachable and available and you do not need to drag your luggage in Granada hill pebble road like some hotels. This is important if you need to rush to airport or train station. The hotel room is standard, not fancy, breakfast is OK which is included. For 116 euro a night, I did not ask much. Even it is close to Alhambra, don't expect a view. We realized that the view is actually at San Nicolás Viewpoint which is far away from hotel. It is a good hotel for one night stay.
Great repeatability regarding standard of service. Clean and comfortable. Good value for money Well situated for the Alhambra and easy access to the City Tour bus which is ideal for getting around and inexpensive
The location couldn't be better for the Alhambra, enabling us to collect our tickets the day before entry and thus avoiding and queue. The room was pleasant with a view over an olive grove at the rear of the hotel, so very quiet. The bathroom was spacious enough but needed a little attention ( crack in the loo seat, but fortunately not in a position to threaten one's safety, and a bath with no taps, providing in essence a shower tray). You have to pay to rent the safe in the room - a nonsense. Breakfast juice was a horrid, artificial orange drink and disappointing for a country that has tree-fully on every street, but the other , but other elements were fine. All in all the Guadalupe represented value for money at the tim of year we stayed (end of Nov).
The hotel is situated 'up the hill' adjacent to the Alhambra. It was a 15 minute, €10 taxi ride from the railway station.(metered). The walk into town centre was downhill on a pedestrian pathway alongside the Alhambra walls. We returned using the C3 bus @€1.20 each. This is a circular route and runs until mid evening. We ate tapas, pizza and pasta in a restaurant bar called LP3 and we're happy with food and service. The hotel itself was clean, tidy and very reasonably priced, breakfast was €6.40 for continental and €10.40 for buffet. There is a bar restaurant about 200 metres down the hill.
We were in the annex up the street, the room had a nice patio, it was quiet with lots of hot water. I chose this hotel because there was parking available across the street at 15.50 euro a day but the neighborhood is dead at night all the restaurants except the hotel (basic food) are closed and you need to walk (very pleasant walk through park), taxi or bus (1.20) down to the city for restaurants etc. This hotel is best if you only have one night to spend in Granada and have early morning tickets to the Alhambra. There are safes in the rooms but hotel charges 3 euro a day to use it. The hotel info said there were two English language tv channels BBC and CNBC, but neither were there and all channels were fuzzy.
We loved our stay at the Guadalupe Hotel. We had a wonderful room that was well-equipped and very quiet. Breakfast was good and the hotel is in a beautiful location near Alhambra and a short walk down a hill and through a forest to the most interesting part of town. Highly recommended.
