Hesperia Granada

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is situated in the heart of the Old section ( and touristy section ) of Granda and is full of old world charm of Southern Spain. Access is difficult by car and impossible by bus but easily walkable from central points. There is a charming central patio. My room was quite large with a big bathroom.You need to bring your own slippers. Wifi was fairly strong. Breakfast was plentiful with a reasonable buffet choice. We never ate a meal in hotel so can't comment on other food. All in all a decent hotel, well situated and a reasonable price.

One of my favourites. Very well located for the tapas trail and the cathedral it is very central. It also has car parking with sensible sized bays. (Try getting a modern car into some of the city underground car parks with bay's build for tiny cars of another era. The hotel is excellent built around a central atrium. Very Andulucia. Rooms are very good and the staff very helpful. We had no problem with an early check in (11am) This is the third time we have stayed here which says it all.

No problem with staff when we stayed here for 3 days. Typical Spanish decor with good sized room for city centre hotel.Great location with easy access to attractions bars and restaurants ( take bus C3 to Alhambra from bus stop 2 minutes away 1.25 euro. and walk back down through park to Novau Square). Car park is adjacent to hotel 22 euros for 24 hours and although Granada has many one way and restricted streets hotel sent excellent directions through the maze. Only disappointment is price of breakfast 18 euro. Good cafes nearby where breakfast can be had for a couple of euro. Overall enjoyed stay and no hesitation in recommending hotel.

Hotel is situated in the centre of Granada and is very accessible to most tourist areas and shops, with good selection of restaurants / bars nearby. Reception staff very friendly and helpful, and check in / check out went very smoothly. Room was good size and comfortable, with a nice ensuite bathroom. Breakfast buffet selection was not extensive but adequate, with freshly prepared hot food available on request. Only problem we encountered was the noise at night from both inside and outside the hotel. A noisy group of students staying at the hotel were running around in the middle of the night banging doors etc. which meant we had a very disturbed night's sleep, and this was not helped by some extremely loud people outside the hotel. Although we enjoyed the hotel, we needed to catch up on our sleep at home after our stay. Luckily we were only there for two nights otherwise we would have felt like zombies.

I had a generally fine time at the Hesperia Granada. Unfortunately, my experience was overshadowed by a significant incident--leaving me deeply frustrated with both the hotel and the NH management company. After a pleasant 3-day stay, I realized I had left my Amazon Kindle in the safe of my room. I noticed immediately upon leaving, and promptly contacted the hotel. The hotel confirmed that they had the Kindle, but refused to send it to my new hotel in Sevilla (even after I offered to pay for the shipment in any way that was convenient). Instead, the reception told me I had to arrange my own shipping service (which was only possible to do by calling a Spanish company, which would have required fluent language skills). My hotel in Sevilla (the Barcelo) was more than willing to help arrange a shipment for me; however, for some reason the pickup never happened -- forcing me to leave the country without my kindle. It would have been so easy for the Hesperia Granada to just send the kindle to the Barcelo. In fact, other hotels in Spain (including the Barcelo) offered to do just that. By the time I got home to the United States, the shipping costs were prohibitively expensive -- essentially forcing me to abandon hope of getting my kindle back (even though, I knew precisely where it was: behind the desk of the Hesperia Granada). It seems to me that any decent hotel that cares about its customers should be willing to send a small package via domestic post, particularly when the customer is willing to pay for the shipment. Instead, both the Hesperia Granada and the NH management company (when I called to explain the situation) offered no help at all and left me to ask a different hotel to help me secure a complicated shipping arrangement despite a language barrier with the shipping company. Point is, in terms of cleanliness and convenience, this is perfectly fine hotel. However, don't bother asking the staff to go at all out of their way to help you -- even if you leave behind valuables. They won't do it. The service does not deserve a rating of four stars.

We stayed in a superior room which was nicely updated - not like any of the photos online - and with a balcony towards the little plaza in front of the hotel. Everything was perfect. I give 4 stars because they ordered a private driver in a Mercedes van to take me to the airport which cost ten dollars more than a normal cab. I wish I had been warned that it would cost 30% more than what I was expecting to get to the airport.

The hotel is pretty good except for a few things. The wifi is not good at all. I have been using the free wifi not the paid and it barely works, for a nice hotel I would step it up. The continental breakfast is really good best one so far on my travels through Spain. Everything is very fresh. The maid service does a great job and the rooms are pretty nice. I understand it is an old hotel but the walls are so thing and even talking normally can be heard down the hall, I was here for a week and overly a really great stay. The front test helped with whatever we needed.

I live at Lake Tahoe and enjoy skiing, and in truth I could easily live in Granada which is situated near the Sierra Nevada mountains. I had the opportunity to travel through most of Spain in 2016, and Granada was certainly one of my favorite visits! I stayed at the quaint and beautiful Hesperia Hotel in downtown Granada. This is a charming little hotel with very nice rooms and common areas. The bathrooms were particularly well appointed. And the hotel is just steps away from any number of interesting shops and cafes. This is a walking city, and the Hesperia is the perfect choice. Naturally, one must either make the steep walk up to the infamous Alhambra, or take a taxi. Granada is a must see locale! I would definitely stay at the Hesperia Hotel again.

Stayed here in November for a long weekend, hotel was clean, staff were helpful. Breakfast was buffet but you could order hot things. The room wasn't very big but clean, my only gripe was that there was no kettle to make a cup of tea in the morning. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the vicinity to eat out, although the bar/restaurant attached to the hotel did do some lovely meals and tapas.

We have visited Granada on many occasions over the years and this Hotel has become our number 1 choice when selecting accommodation. It is located in a characterful old building, with a large covered central patio, in the historical heart of the city, only a short walk away from the Cathedral/Capilla Real, the Corral del Carbon and the Plaza Nueva. Minbus stops for the Alhambra and the Albaizin/Sacromonte are also nearby. The hotel rooms are also characterful, furnished in an antique style, but with modern facilities including a large flat-screen TV, a room safe and a mini-bar. Standard rooms are perfectly adequate for a short-stay, but superior rooms are worth the modest supplement, as they're bigger and have large windows, some with balconies. There is virtually no traffic noise, as the hotel is set in a narrow back street, 5 minutes from the main Reyes Catolicos thoroughfare. The hotel has a separate restaurant/bar serving local and Spanish specialities, which seems popular with the locals. There are also numerous tapas bars and restaurants in the surrounding streets, so visitors to the hotel will be spoiled for choice! Staff are pleasant and professional. The only downside of this quiet but central location is that travellers with a car may well have great difficulty locating and accessing the Hotel (which has an underground car park at Euros 22 per day) via the maze of narrow one-way streets. Many streets in the Historical Quarter are also restricted to buses and taxis only. We have always selected the more practical option of parking in one the much more accessible public car parks (c.Euros 20 daily), of which there are at least two within a 10/15 minute walk from the Hotel. However, this may not be feasible for those with a large amount of luggage.
