Hotel Carlos V1.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I went to Granada last week to see the Alhambra as a solo traveller, and booked into this nice hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the Plaza Isabel catolica, from there you can walk to the Cathedral or the main shopping area, or up the hill to the Alhambra. The hotel occupies the 4th Floor of a grand building and there is a supermarket on the ground floor a few steps from the entrance into the building. I arrived at 3 pm, as i had already checked in online, I only needed to show my passport and was then shown to my room. All the staff at the hotel speak good english and are very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and decorated to high standard. The room also has aircon and a hair dryer in the bathroom. I had a wonderful stay and will stay at this hotel next time
Great budget hotel with very helpful staff. Good parking and great directions so easy to find. Loved the balcony and the view across the city. Near supermarket and cafes and enjoyed some great Churros in nearby family bar/cafe. Would stay again😊
Hotel was easy to find , although situated on the 4th floor. Staff had already been really helpful by booking some Alhambra tickets when other outlets were full. Also very good at booking taxis which arrived almost immediately with a taxi number to make sure you knew it was yours. Check in was easy and the rooms were comfortable. Breakfast was ok if a little basic but given there are no kitchen facilities the buffet range was fine. Only downside was a strong drainy smell in the bathroom but that may have been caused by the heavy raln experienced on our first day.
Great hotel, very kind and helpful reception staff. Room was very clean and even the bathroom was top. Very near to restaurants. Hotel is in a big old house on the 4th floor but there is an elevator. If you want a very good value for money hotel, book Carlos V.
It's better to arrive hotel at morning time. As it's on 4/f and the ground floor is nobody. Restaurant & supermarket are nearby, within 1mins walk. It's convenience to go to the bus stop for Alhambra. No refrigerator at room. Hot water is available to get at the reception. Staff are nice and helpful. Reasonable room rate.
Arrived for a four night stay with friends. Having read the trip advisor reviews decided we would give it a go. Hotel is on the 4th floor of an apartment block so residents below and above. The room (409) was right next to the breakfast room and was therefore extremely noisy from 07.30 onwards, which was o.k if you didn't want a lie in. Buffet style breakfast fresh and plentiful, fruit, toats, pastries etc. Bedroom was quite small and very dark, no natural light but airconditioned. If you were only using the room for a bed for the night then it was perfectly adequate for the duration. Perfectly located for access to the city centre and nice walks along the river. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist in all areas from tickets for Alhambra to ringing a pharmacist regarding medication. All in all a pleasant stay.
Our hotel is central Granada in high season, September, at Carlos V, was about 80 Euros a night and it was very comodo. When we checked in, a German native, Kristen, was on duty. She was very helpful. She let us know we needed to buy tickets for the Alhambra entrance ahead of time and we did not know you can't just go up to the gate and expect to get a prompt entry time to the main part that everyone wants to see. And she also was helpful in other ways. I usually don't tip desk personnel but I did tip her. She is a valuable employee and I hope that the management at the Hotel Carlos V can provide her with a nice bonus some time because I think she has earned it. Further, she let us know that with an audio guide we'd be fine at the Alhambra and Generalife, no need to hire a guide. She also clued us in well on good places to look for a quick bite but if you have more time, go beyond Calle Navas. Go up Calle Reyes Catolicos and get lost on a side street with restaurants and take a chance. You'll probably not go wrong.
Pros: Helpful and friendly staff. Splendid view from the breakfast room. Good location. Cons: Small room with little natural light giving an overall feeling of gloominess. Aircon thermostat faulty. Obviously not all of the rooms are the same and it may be worth paying the extra for a brighter room with a view although I suspect any rooms overlooking the street could be noisy.
We stayed 2 nights in Carlos V. The Hotel is good located and both the city and Alhambra is good to reach. From the balcony you have a nice view over the city. Parking is possible for 16,50 Euro per night. Think it s okay but the garage is not directly in front if the hotel. On tre way to the garage do not be scared of passing a road which is only for authorised cars. The hotel asks for your plate number and informs the police so that you are authorised. The only bad thing was that we hardly get sleep. Unfortunately, we got the room 409 which is very close to the reception and to a drinks machine. Even late at night we could hear soda bottles falling down and the squiking of fetching them. Also, the Spanish guys seem not to care about other already sleeping guests so they were shouting and discussing loud while walking over the floor and/or buying their drinks. It may be that the hotel provide rooms which are more quiet.
For the price this hotel is great value. Located very centrally within walking distance of restaurants and bars as well as the Alhambra. Parking does cost extra and the car park is located a few minutes walk away but the receptionist was very helpful in explaining this to us and so was no issue.
