Hotel Las Nieves3.0 out of 5.0

Initially, we booked in another hotel, that turned out had a countryside location. It was an excellent hotel for honeymooners, but unsuitable for sightseeing in Granada. We made a quick decision and started looking for a centrally located hotel, which had free rooms on that very day. We were lucky since the H N point was just what we wanted. To get there by car isn't easy at all, it took us lots of circulating, to reach a not too far point. The gentleman from the hotel was so kind and drove the car to the hotel's parking house. To see the driving conditions in that area we decided to leave the car there until the time when we depart from Granada. The stop of the Hop-on, hop-off bus only a few steps away, was a great help. With that bus, we were able to go everywhere that was too far to walk. The hotel would deserve a much higher ranking without the noise.I don't know, how much would it cost them to replace the doors and windows for heat and soundproofed ones, but it would make a huge difference. The otherwise lovely hotel has such an awful sleeping quality, that can completely ruin your nights. The guests of the nearby restaurants are yelling, singing, making unrecognizable noises until three o' clock in the morning, and when you think that there is a little quiet time, you weak up to the sound of a nuclear attack. Takes a couple of minutes frozen listening, until you realize, that only garbage truck arrived. They play about half an hour, but after immediately the morning traffic starts. If they were able to solve this problem, it would be a great hotel. For 3,50 euros we get a good breakfast. Not a big one, but enough for us. First, we had the coffee or tea, with a refill if you wish, and after they served tostada (toasted bread roll) with butter and jam. Because I noticed, that the Spanish guests are having something different, I asked for the same thing. It was Tostada con tomate. From the first bite my favorite. It is toasted bread roll with crushed fresh tomato and a sprinkle of olive oil. It is the Andalusian version of the Italian bruschetta. Our hotel room was spacious, clean, with comfortable beds, and clean bathroom, with amenities. For the parking, we had to pay, but without this possibility, it would be tough to find a safe parking spot for the car. There are countless of restaurants around this accommodation, cheaper and more expensive ones so it easy to choose a tapas bar or a place with set tables and complete dinner. The hotel staff was accommodating and informative. Despite the lousy sleeping quality but considering all the benefits, I think I would choose this hotel again.
We had booked a hotel in Dilar thinking it was close to Granada so we booked this at the last minute and paid accordingly. We spent an hour trying to drive to the hotel which is either illegal or impossible but I got as close as I could then they offered us parking in their own underground lot nearby (where they have apartments) for 15 euros/day and a guy working for the hotel parked the car. The rooms are fairly large with plenty of power points, clean, and they have amenities. There are closets and furniture so places to store things if you stay several days as we did. The location is great. The red/green hop-on/hop-off tourist bus stop 10 is less than 100 metres from their door. You can walk to a lot of attractions such as the Cathedral and the Capella Real, even the Albacin neighbourhood, but I would take the bus to the Alhambra because its very steep. Unfortunately noise is a problem at night even with police close by, with people drunk and singing at 5AM. This happened each of the three nights so although the beds were comfortable it was like sleeping on a plane. Breakfast was 3,5 euros and on the third morning we converted from toast with jam to toast with tomatoes and olive oil which is tastier and healthier. Breakfast also includes freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee or tea. The bar, which is only open during the day, offers cheap local beer and other drinks. They offer set course lunches but we found better alternatives within 100 metres. There are many good restaurants very near by, the best being Poe, a tapas place so cheap I couldn't believe it. We left on a Saturday so I had to extract the rental car myself which was pretty hairy because of the tight turns but I did it without a scratch with help from my lady.
Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Excellent restaurant on site with excellent lunch and limited breakfast. Only negative was noise in room next to street since iscin the middle of town.
It is not easy to get to, as it is right smack in the middle of the old city but once I got inside the gentleman at the front desk told me he would park my car and he did. And the next morning he was kind enough to bring it to the hotel. It is an average hotel, the breakfast was not included in the price, but it is OK for a one night stay. It is very clean and the beds were fine.
Central location, easy walk to most places. Cheap taxi ride to intercity bus stop. Nice streets and shops nearby. Lots of cafes. The rooms are spacious and clean. Even with the shutters closed you can hear a lot of noise from the street outside which goes late into the night and starts very early in the morning. That is the only downside. The reception staff are wonderful, especially Pilar who speaks great English and is extremely lovely and helpful. Café serves basic, cheap but lovely breakfast - after the first time we didn't go anywhere else. Didn't try it but I'm sure their lunch is also great. Would recommend this place to travellers.
This hotel is clean and warm and centrally located. It is only a short walk to the bus to Alhumbra. We had a room that overlooked the pedestrian mall which was not too noisy during the day but they was a lot of yelling outside during the night. Rooms at the back of the hotel may be quieter. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. We would probably stay here again.
We chose this hotel based on it's location and reviews saying it was easy to find (signs) and that they had parking for 15 euros (we had a rental car). We arrived into Granada at 7pm. We drove around for an hour trying to find this place (using car and TomTom GPS). Finally gave up and put in closest parking garage to the hotel (Victoria Parking lot), which was about a 3 min walk to hotel. We talked to the parking attend who gave us parking for 18 euros/night - usually 22 euro/night (stayed 2 nights). When we got to the hotel and explained how hard it was to find, we were told there is a sign on the other street (we were driving on the main street - why not a sign there?) and other people have no problem finding them. They offered to go get our car and park it in their spaces. By that time - it wasn't worth the 5 euros. We got a room on the first floor right next to the staircase - VERY noisy, both inside and outside of the hotel. When we went to leave and get our car - the parking attend told us usually they need the hotel to sign the ticket that we stayed there (did not come up when we mentioned we parked in the public parking with the hotel staff), but they gave us the discount when we said where we stayed. If you are mostly concerned with location (and don't have a car) - this is a great place. Overall clean and hotel staff (after first encounter) was good. Would I recommend this place or stay here again - based on noise and ease of finding the hotel while driving, no I would not.
What I liked : - location : cant get any better - staff : very friendly and helpful What I didn't like : - room size : too small - noise : hotel walls seem to be done from paper. Actually he had to ask our neighbors from the next room to low the TV sound .You can here anything.. - cold : room was so cold during the night, the heater did not work properly - breakfast : basic one , you have to pay for it .They don't serve breakfast on Sundays. Bottom line : if you only look for a central place to sleep , it is perfect . But ask for some extra blankets ;)
I came with my wife to Granada for a city break and willing to do some tourism in Granada. I took this hotel because it had very good comments in TripAdvisor but I have felt disappointed in a way. We stayed in room #329. PROS The location. You may like it or not but you must admit that the location of this hotel can't get any better. It is in a pedestrian street five minutes walk from the cathedral and many other fancy places to visit. The staff. There is a group of young personnel at the front desk all the time, very kind and always willing to assist you and giving you advice on where to go and what to visit. The cleaning. The room was very clean, no complainings at all. CONS The room. This has been the smallest room I have ever been to, I don't think it was bigger than 12 squared meters. Perhaps, we came with a greater expectation but the first thing we both said was "how small it is". The heating system. When we arrived to the room it was a bit chilly and we tried to turn on the heating system but we didn't make it. Maybe the central heating system wasn't turned on yet but this date. Who knows... Thinny walls and noisy neighbours. I am not sure of what the problem was, whether if the walls were extremely thin and you could hear everything on the room next to yours or if the neighbours were deaf and this why the TV was very loud at midnight. Thing is that I had to get up from bed at 1 a.m., go to their room, knock on their door and ask them to turn down the TV because we were trying to get some sleep and it was impossible with the TV and their talking loud. The beds. I know I am a bit maniac with this but whenever I travel with my wife, I like to sleep in a double bed, not in two single ones. This time, I forwarded an email to the staff prior to our arrival with my request and they kindly replied me explaining that the request would be satisfied only pending availability. Unfortunatelly, we got a two single beds room. Summing up, this time I think I didn't enjoy my staying in this hotel very much. Next time I come to Granada I will look for more choices.
Stayed here for one night .could not have been more central as its in the heart of the shopping district.plenty of cafes nearby and close to the main tapas bar streets .taxi man drove us close and directed us to it.rooms were small but clean and we had a fridge to .we had a Juliet balcony which we liked and it was not noisey at all . Good value for money .
