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.
The hotel is located at a 10 min walk to the city center and is a good value for money - clean - shops and restaurants nearby. The bus stops are located nearby and the location makes the entire city very accessible.
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.
