Really nice hotel: professional receptionist, nice and big room, good airconditioning, good breakfast. Nothing else needed! The hotel is located in a small street in which you can't park your car. Not very difficult to park in the streets around that street.
Globales Reina Cristina This was my first time staying here. Usually I just drive through Algeciras en route to Morocco & elsewhere , but this time I decided to spend a few days in the port city. The hotel is situated close to the ferry terminal : it is a beautiful old building , originally opened in 1901 , with plenty of character , surrounded by large manicured lawns with colourful shrubs. There are ancient ruins on site ( from an 8 th century mosque ) though they are not sign posted. The foyer area is large & airy & a lovely place to relax after a days sightseeing. The bedrooms are nicely furnished & the bathrooms provide nice toiletries in a zip bag. The food I thought was disappointing , and I ate out after the first night. There are indoor & outdoor swimming pools. ( Swimming towels are provided in the bedrooms) The restaurant & housekeeping staff were friendly & helpful but the bar men were surly & not a good advertisement for the hospitality industry. Overall the hotel is great value for money & it's a nice place to unwind & relax after travelling in Morocco.
A convenient location and functional hotel make this a good budget option for the city centre, though the hotel's parking is some 300m away and you will need a member of staff to guide you there. The photo of the internal atrium that currently features on the tripadvisor and booking.com webpages oversells the rest of the hotel, as its rooms don't match up to the initial promise and are in fact plain and unremarkable, with short sit-up baths and showers that sprinkle the floor. Good to sleep in and as a base to explore, but inadequate as a place itself in which to rest and relax.
We had no preconception about this hotel and found it online as a place to stay on our point to point journey.It is a magnificent old hotel and in its day would have been hard to beat..Although a little old and tired now it still has its charm and I have to confess the room was large and airy with a very generous sized bathroom.Where it is located is near the seaport and the area not very attractive to walk around, but if you find the inner city it is very interesting with lane ways full of cafes and restaurants. We were there during the easter long weekend so for the most part it was very quiet.If it is a serene setting you are looking for than you could do no better than this grand old hotel.
I arrived in Granada without previous arrangements and was delighted to find this hotel. The hotel is very well located near the Cathedral, and from there you can visit the main attractions in the city. Room was extremely clean and comfortable though small like most rooms in Europe. An added value is the link between famous writer Garcia Lorca and this hotel. I highly recommend this hotel!!
We really loved this hotel. At every turn there is something from the 1920s or 30s. There is a Gaudi like skylight from the restaurant up the 4 or 5 floors to the roof. The restaurant is magnificent, so opulent.
Through the front door in to the charming Andalucían lobby made me think that I was in for a treat but that was not to happen. The room was dated and the bed extremely uncomfortable, I'd rather have slept on the floor. I've stayed in granada many times and for the money spent I know I should have got a much better room, I must have been given the cheap tourist room.
The hotel is located in a lovely area of Granada, steps to the Cathedral and cafés. It is clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast buffet was included in the price and it was good/sufficient. One thing, there is a safe in the room but you have to pay extra for it - I did not know this ahead of time, so that is why I am adding this to the review. I would highly recommend this hotel based on it's ideal location and value.
We stayed there in Dec. 2016 for one night and had a pleasant stay. The room and bathroom was bigger than expected and everything fine for the price we paid. BUT, now I have received a traffic fine from Granada Town hall informing me that I was not authorized to use the road which leads to the Hotel !!!! not a good situation. So be warned, if using Calle Tablas (in which the Hotel is situated ) in direction of Plaza de la Trinidad. Apart from that I can recommend the Hotel.
The room was small, but that is expected in Europe. It was clean. The bed mattress was a bit stiff for me and the pillow was unusual. The staff at the reception were helpful and pleasant. The location was convenient walking distance to the places I wanted to go to. This was very good value, and with a similar price, if I was visiting Granada again for only 1 or 2 nights, I would stay there again. For a longer stay, I think I would need a different type of mattress.
