A nice hotel, perfectly lookated and with a friendly staff for a nice price. Comfort in the beds and nice design. Just a few minor faults. A little slow wi-fi, they didnt inform us about that We have to book the breakfast in advance, but give us a realy good recomendation where to go.
We stayed for one night in this hotel. On the outside it looks just like any of the other quaint buildings lining up the streets around Plaza Isabel la Catolica and Plaza Nueva (the main center for visiting different parts of the city). Inside, the Marquis Urban is decorated with a fresh modern take on different styles from Art Deco to Bauhaus. The staff were young, spoke English fluently, and were very helpful. For 50 Euros a night, we were given the Fred Astaire room on the first floor which looked exactly as advertised and had plenty of space and modern amenities. Yes, there is no "panoramic view" from there, but that is expected in a hotel located in such an agglomeration of old buildings. Besides, we were on vacation and wanted to spend as much time walking through the city streets as possible, so the room was the perfect place to take a nice shower and get a good night's sleep without any of the usual inconveniences in other hotels. The room was sound-proof and very clean (we had some misgivings at first when we saw it had carpeting, but found no trace of dust, spills, burns or any other damage to it). Breakfast was not included (we misunderstood that part on Booking.com) and had to be pre-ordered a day in advance. Nevermind, there was a lovely neighborhood bakery and juice/coffee shop just outside the hotel. All things considered, we paid less than in guesthouses in other parts of Andalusia and got much better quality in exchange.
After reading reviews and seeing pictures of this hotel, I was really looking forward to staying at this funky little hotel in Granada. Unfortunately, we were let down by quite a few factors during our stay. My sister and I were given room 001 (the Sinatra Room), which apparently is a handicap accessible room which is not something we specifically requested. Below are the pros and cons of our stay: Pros -The location is convenient to the shuttle bus that takes you to the Alhambra as well as great restaurants and shopping. It's also close to a taxi stand if you prefer to take a taxi. -The room was available before official check-in time. -Has a mini fridge that can help you keep your drinks cold -The room faced an interior "courtyard" which meant that there was no noise that came from the street. -The male attendant at the reception desk was friendly and helpful, can't say the same for the others who were at the desk. -The mattresses were comfortable Cons -Because the room faced an interior courtyard, the room got very little natural light. The artificial lighting in the room was not sufficient (very few lighting sources that weren't particularly bright) so the room was always dark. -There was only one very small trashcan (located in the bathroom) for the entire room. -The bathroom smelled heavily of mildew because the shower is meant to be handicap accessible, so there was barely any lip between the shower floor and the rest of the floor in the bathroom which made it so that water got all over the floor (both in and out of the shower) when showering. The shower floor was the same laminate that the rest of the bathroom floor was made out of. Lastly, there was nothing to stop the water from flowing into the carpet that stuck out into the bathroom from the door leading into the bedroom. -The wireless signal was very weak. Most of the time, we had trouble even using Google maps or the TripAdvisor app. Forget trying to stream anything. -The towels in the bathroom were small and nonabsorbent -The hairdryer would shut off after using it for a minute on high. You would have to turn it off and let it "rest" for five minutes in order to get it to work for another minute on high. -There was no counter space in our bathroom, so we could fit our tooth brushes by the sink, and that was about it. -We could hear our neighbors slamming their doors at all hours of the day and night. Bring ear plugs. Even though we got what I thought was a good rate (around 50 euro/night), I would not stay here again.
Lovely modern, clean & spacious room & bathroom. Bed was larger than a king size, which added to our comfort. The rooftop is a lovely space to relax, with a mixture of shade & sunshine. Staff were kind & friendly. The hotel is in a great location. We didn't book for breakfast, prefering to try the many cafes nearby. There were many great places to eat. We had a few problems with the air conditioning, but when it worked it was really effective. Would reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants a good loaction in the centre of Granada.
Best part of hotel is certainly rooftop, it's not a bar but you can take drinks up if you fancy, and room and general vibe up there is so relaxing. The room was okay and in fact, the entire hotel is just okay, staff are not that helpful they could maybe smile and be a bit more engaging, the welcome I had I felt guilty for arriving. It's a great location for everything, decent price also, shower has good pressure which isn't always case in Europe. Overall an okay choice for a few nights in Granada.
The Marquis Urban looks the part of a nice boutique hotel. Lots of nice quirky features like bowler caps suspended from the ceiling, what looks like a glamorous bar, etc. From a practical perspective, however, it's quite disappointing. The hotel staff seem relatively disinterested, which is a surprise given that people working in hotels in Spain are normally quite helpful. The bathtowels were small and cheap, which contrasts to the image they're trying to portray with the hotel design. Similarly the hair dryer in the room was poor, yet they went to the effort of having a retro phone in the room when investing in something more practical would have been more beneficial. The wifi also was at a snail's pace at times which was also quite frustrating. These all may seem like minor irks, but all contrast with the image the hotel is trying to convey. I wouldn't stay here again.
Booked this hotel online for three reasons; its quirkyness, the rooftop views and the proximity of the direct bus service to the Alhambra. It's not so pretty from outside but it is very well located. Ignore the reviews about it being a hotel for young people, I think it's more a matter of taste. The age group was quite mixed when we stayed there. We're not young and we loved it. It is urban, it's not plush but it's comfortable, functional and it's cool. We had a room with an atrium view which I think might be preferable to an outward facing one. Room was nice (201), compact but not tiny, looked just like the photo on the website. The rooftop isn't huge but there are 2 main parts offering different views. The bar was not yet open as it was still out of season but there is a small bar in the foyer and a fridge in the room. You are welcome to take your own food and drink up to the rooftop. All the staff were really charming, friendly and helpful. At less than €40 a night it was a real bargain.
Whoever designed this hotel seems to have put thought into everything, for both good and bad since they tried to be unique with everything. The good includes: location, great bed, great staff, nice rooftop to sit out on. The bad includes: odd bathroom with see-through doors, bad breakfast. There were few people in the hotel when we were there, but it might get loud if the capacity was higher. Parking is nearby in a tight underground lot.
This hotel is a such find! perfect location near everything in Granada. Comfortable room and amazing pillows (I have to say it) roof top is perfect to watch the sunset :) The only negative point was the breakfast indicated from my supplier as full breakfast. It was a continental basic breakfast with only 1 croissant and 1 loaf of bread with jamon per person, but not so bad. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel for sure.
Recently stayed in this hotel on 5th March and absolutely no regrets! Check in was very swift, the reception desk by the name of Jonathan was very friendly, kind and helpful. He provide us with a map and help us to locate all the places of interest in Granada, which is all within walking distance from this hotel. Perfect location, clean and very cozy rooms. I book a twin room but was being upgraded to a duplex room, very comfortable for 2 person! There is a halal thai restaurant located across the road, very delicious food!! Its name is Padthaiwok, highly recommended!! If you happen to come across this hotel and its not fully booked, do not think twice!!
