Hotel Reina Cristina3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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.
I didn't know what to expect given the previous reviews but I was very pleasantly surprised . Perfect location with lots of lovely bars and restaurants close by . We booked a double room and it had a small living room too so loads of room. We were there in October and it was still about 24 degrees so air conditioning needed at night . No pool or anything so might not be best choice in hot summer . I'd definitely recommend if you want a clean , handy hotel for short break.
Ultimate self service canteen. Even got to serve your own tea or coffee.When wedding receptions or wedding fayres took place residents were left to their own devices. When complaints were made they were rejected and lies told about being offered drinks as compensation.Lovely building, poor organisation and nothing much round about without bussing or taking taxis.
