Hotel Reina Cristina

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Having just stayed at the Reina Cristina for the sixth or seventh time, I am compelled to confirm my continuing high regard for it. My criteria for evaluating hotels are: location, reception, room size, bed and shower. The location is excellent for touring the city and for those visiting during Semana Santa. The staff managing the reception - Lydia and Jose Luis - are welcoming, knowledgable, and helpful. Every room I have stayed in has been more than adequate in size; the beds are comfortable for my age appropriate lower back issues; the shower is invigorating - all factors prompting my 5 star rating.

We stayed 2 nights in hotel. Room was small, clean, quite. As we spent all days out exploring Granada it was just perfect for us, we came only to sleep there. Hotel is on excellent location, we were able to get everywhere walking. The best was breakfast, very good choice of hot and cold food, excellent start of every day. Personnel was kind and professional. Hotel is great value for money.

The hotel was a family home back in 1936. The famous Spanish author Federico García Lorca was hidden by his friends here. Just this would make this a pilgrimage place for his fans. But, besides that, the hotel is very conveniently located a few meters from the Cathedral and Saint Anthony 's church. The staff is really nice and helpful, they even printed my Alhambra tickets. The atmosphere is really retrô, with a lot of furnitures antigue shops and I would like to have.

Nice and bright hotel with some period features. Good location (centrally located) and just a 20 minute or so taxi ride to Alhambra. We didn't eat in the hotel but the dining room always seemed busy. If you speak English only, you may have problems as the reception staff spoke no English (and we met several over 2 days). I have recruited in the hospitality industry (General Managers and Assistant GMs for hotels) and I would think language skills would be a priority. I would think lots of Brits would find the hotel attractive.

Not a perfect hotel, but it is ok. The towel I used the first day was full with hair, which was terrible. The next days I found hairs in the bed after the room service. The neighbourhood and other rooms were loudy. The breakfast is very basic but ok. The personnel were helpful.

Very nice hotel in a great location, parking is a problem though as although we booked in advance when we arrived we were told that there were no spaces available. Good breakfast buffet and dinner in the restaurant was very nice

Rooms are basic and clean. Bed could improve because although it was clean the mattress needs to be changed. Good WiFi and very friendly staff. Breakfast is included and location is its best asset. Choose a room inside the building if you want silence

we stayed at the christina for 4 days and what a great time we had. the staff were very friendly and helpful they would do anything for us. the rooms were cleaned everyday and nothing was to much trouble. very handy for everything like the cathedral the rambles etc. we are going back next year at some time, we don't usually do this but we had a such great time.

The hotel is well located; it's easy to get almost anywhere. It must have been really attractive at some point, but that has faded quite a bit. The owner frequently sat at the desk when we were there and was neither particularly helpful or friendly. This was more than made up for by the extraordinary desk clerk MariaLuz who was wonderful. We had great difficulty obtaining tickets for the Alhambra, and she helped us buy them a few months before we arrived. Once we were there, she was warm, friendly and very concerned about our well being. Her presence really warmed up the place. The room was old, nothing special and perfectly adequate. The breakfast room was strange. There was plenty to eat, but our second morning there, there was no one around. There were numerous tables that hadn't been cleared, food had not been replenished. It was ghost-like.and rather odd. All in all there was nothing extraordinary about the Reina Cristina other than MariaLuz who was fantastic.

It was not my first stay in the Reina Cristina and I enjoyed my last stay there, a few years ago. To be honest, very little had changed to the hotel itself (and maybe it could do with a little bit of a refresh – it does feel rather frilly and old fashioned) but it is still a good place to stay. I remembered that the breakfast was good – it is still OK, but not as good as last time. When were there this time, the toaster was only intermittently working and a queue formed. Clearly, my breakfast toast is not the most important thing in the world but it did look a bit sloppy. No fresh fruit, though there was abundant fresh juices. The hotel has sorted out its dodgy wifi coverage and this was now perfect. I can’t quite put my finger on it – there is something rather staid and fusty about the place. It is clean and tidy, but rather gloomy and does not seem to have kept up with the times. I will probably go back when I’m next in Granada, but it does not seem so much like a treat – just an acceptable, if unremarkable place to stay.
