Where do I begin? First there is no parking at or near the hotel - you have to drive back to the modern part of the city center and park in a municipal parking lot, schlep your luggage to the taxi queue a few blocks away and take a taxi to the hotel. (Parking was about 24 Euros for the overnight of which the hotel refunded the cost of the taxi to the hotel, but not the cost of the taxi back to the parking garage - total about 28 Euros and tons of aggravation!) Once we arrived at the hotel there are many steps to negotiate to get to the front door, and a number of steps to get to the reception (all with luggage!!). Then we had a number of steps to our room, which was cold - the heating system did not work and had to be rebooted from somewhere else. There was only intermittent internet - my wife got on and lost it, while I was never able to get on. We reported it to the receptionist (afternoon) who tried to get the internet working but could not. We reported it in the morning again and the morning receptionist was downright rude and sassy saying that she didn't know it was down - that no one had told her - so how was she to know! She told me that the system was old and that we could purchase a newer internet connection for 3.95 Euros or go to a sister hotel and use their internet!! The windows of our room were single-paned so we heard the street noise below our window well into the wee small hours of the morning! And there were no kleenex-type tissues in the bathroom - we used toilet paper to blow our noses, etc. The breakfast room was unmarked and took us 10-minutes of going up and down stairs, following the so-called instructions of the staff to find it. The location of the hotel itself is perfect for night life and for visiting the Al Hambra (about a 2-km walk uphill the whole way - best to take a taxi), but it certainly was not worth the aggravation of the hotel! Never again!!!!! Very bad choice. And, why do you say it is 5-Star? They advertise themselves as 4-Star, but they don't even approach anywhere near that level! The hotel building itself is very picturesque and would make a lovely museum, but NOT a hotel! Not only would I not recommend this hotel to a friend, I wouldn't even recommend it to anyone!
First impression the taxi would not go down street, has to go all way around town. One has to climb two flights of steps without railings( no 4 star has that. Room was rustic, furniture really old, not many Ammenities , no conditioner. The help bent over backwards to assist
cannot get wifi in my room on 3rd floor. great location, friendly staff
The hotel was a charming place to relax and walking distance to so many attractions in Granada .
The location and setting can't be beat, we liked our room very much. Very clean and large bathroom and eveything Was spotless. Front desk service left A lot to be desired, at one point even arguing With us about whether we'd been given keys or not . So, don't let this turn you off but don't be Surprised if this happens to you, the rooms and Price are worth a minor hassle...
