Hotel Carlos V

Recent guest reviews

Stayed early June for four days. Emailed hotel in advance as flight to Granada arrived hours before designated check in. On arrival one of two rooms was ready and able to leave heavy luggage and set off to explore the fabulous city. The hotel is located within a five minute slow walk to the central shopping streets and Granada cathedral. Rooms have all the facilities required possibly with the exception of a tea/coffee making facility. This was not a concern as little time other than sleeping and an occasional use of the excellent power shower was spent in the room. Beds extremely comfortable and daily room cleaning exemplary. Front desk staff were excellent, providing advice on Granada attractions and also a map detailing how to walk to the Alhambra. Note, this is a fifteen minute walk with a very steep climb but the views on the route make it worthwhile . Enjoyed Granada and staying at Carlos V so much that booked for a four day return visit in November this year.

We didn't have a room with a view but we didn't expect one based on the price point - it was clean and compared to many other rooms we have stayed in it was large. The bathroom had a really great shower and the breakfast was good.

The location of the hotel is great close to centre and all beautiful squares and restaurants.It is easy to go to Alhambra by walk from hotel around 20min and you are by entrance gate.The breakfast is OK but also the view from restaurant is very good.Only thing what this hotel does not have is parking but there is really close one

Firstly, would like to praise the member of staff who organised our Alhambra tickets when we thought there were none available. A month later we arrived at the elegant Carlos V and found all members of staff to be just as friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel itself is in a great location, clean, comfortable and homely We took advantage of the great buffet breakfast - a wide variety of fresh produce (€6) which we enjoyed on the terrace with lovely views of the city and set us up nicely for the awe-inspiring Alhambra. Apart from the Alhambra, we generally loved this amazing city, particularly the Albaicin barrio and the Mirador de San Nicolas with it's stunning views of the Alhambra. We simply cannot wait to return to this magical city and wouldn't hesitate to stay for a longer period in this lovely hotel. Thanks, from Richard and Azra!

I usually stay in hostels but I was getting into Granada late at night so I thought to book a hotel. There were no cabs still running when I got to the airport so I asked them to arrange one for me. I got in what I thought was the cab the hotel sent only to find out upon arrival that it was not. Once in the hotel I was greeted by the meanest, rudest, WORST person I have ever encountered in the customer service industry. I have traveled to over 20 countries and have never met a more horrible customer service employee. After a long day of travel and fear (they locked me, a 21 year old female, out of the airport because it had closed, to fend for myself at 11:45pm) I was yelled at by the front desk clerk like a child for at least 10 minutes. This hotel is not well suited for solo travelers. I am still very upset by the way I was treated and highly recommended that you don’t stay here.

I was really impressed by this hotel my stay was very good and i can hardly complain about anything. We arrived late at night and checked in the front offices young beautiful lady was extremely nice and helpful spoke perfect English, the rooms are big and very clean the whole of hotel is extreme clean and looks like new. The hotel is located in CC a 2 min walk to the center,the hotel has also got a supermarket on the 1st floor which is really handy, hotel has got car park right next to the hotel but paid parking with 50%discount if you are a hotel guest. Good quality Breakfast not too expensive. Overall grade Excellent Thanks you Carlos V Stuff .

We stayed at the Carlos V hotel for 3 nights from 28th Feb 2018. Rooms were a good size, clean and well maintained. Only breakfast available in the hotel but plenty of small bars outside serving everything you want. Staff were helpful and friendly, speaking many different languages. Brilliant hotel at a reasonable nightly room rate.

Good location in Granada, within essy access to local attractions, this hotel offers a very good ssrvice, good rooms with everything you may need and for 6 extra euros you can have breakfast there. But if you are content with a coffee and some toast or a croissant, and do not mind crossing the street when getting up, you will save 3 euros per day 😃. The extra food you get is some fruit and cold cuts, nothing special, and the croissants are not the best.

First of all - when I booked 2 rooms for me and my friends, I got road directions about how to get there from other city e-mailed to me - without asking. Next - the location is great! Nearby all attractions, in walkable distance from Alhambra even. The staff is ever so friendly and helpful. Helped me with phoning to taxi company for planning my trip next day. Next morning taxi arrives 2 min after they are phoned. All receptionists where exceptionally friendly. Breakfast was quite basic, but good for a spanish version. If you want to please guests from other countries - egg in various forms is a good thing to add ;) Another friendly suggestion - as the check-out time is 12 o'clock, then it would be much more suitable if the room key stops working at 12, not at 11 o'clock. ;) I asked for a room close to the room where my friends stayed and I got it - with a marvelous view from the window - over the town. Room has got a hydromassage shower! Wi-fi was alright and beds where fine. I liked the pillows :) I missed a bottle of water what is usually included in other hotels I have been to. Plenty of towels and lights. Cleaning is done also very nice way - I was rushing to Sierra Nevada and came back and found all stuff neatly folded and organized. It gives you feeling of tidiness and carefulness. Parking place is very narrow (very big americkan-ish cars might not get thru), but close by - only 2 minute walk away, for additional fee. Excellent value for the money. Thank you for me having great couple of days in Granada this week.

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
