We had the privilege to sleep for 1 night at the Parador and we enjoyed every minutes of it. As we were on the location, early in the morning, we were the first one to discover the Generalife, which is just around the corner. Staff is very professional and made us feel like home. The restaurant offers a great view of the Generalife and it is very romantic. Everyone should try it once in his life.
Staying at this parador was the highlight of my trip, my room was spacious, modern and lovely with a beautiful view. Both dinner and breakfast were wonderful, and the hotel kindly arranged a tour for me as I could not get one online. Hotel staff were accommodating and warm. I only wish I had stayed longer! Five stars.
For us, 3 nights here was a splurge. As we qualified for the over 55 promotion, we received a 10% discount for the room and 30% off breakfast. Joining the Amigos club also gets you 2 free drinks. We didn't take the offered upgrades and were happy with the size and outlook of our standard room (104). The free parking was good and all the advice on TA made finding the car park relatively easy, stay left when you see the public car park boom gate and past the motorcycles and the taxis there is a boom gate almost straight in front of you. Push the Parador button and tell them that you have a reservation . The staff were very good but make sure that you check the bills for meals and accommodation, we had errors in both directions - mistakes happen.
Our party of 14 stayed one night in 5 different rooms. We had 4 standard rooms and one superior room. The rooms were all cooled nicely except one (101) which seemed to have a "weak" air conditioner. The room temperature was kept at a bearable level, though. The air conditioner won't go on if the windows are not latched shut. The hotel is a remodeled monastery and has many historic sections. The open air courtyard was a beautiful place to sit if you didn't move around too much in the heat. We had an amazing buffet breakfast that we ate out in the misty garden which overlooked the gardens of the GeneralLife. The staff at the Parador were very helpful, and we were able to start our tour of the Alhambra right there in the hotel lobby with a private tour guide just for hotel guests. The staff also kept our luggage in a special room even though it was after checkout time and they did not make us move our car. The Parador was located right at the exit gate of the Generalife gardens, so the location was very convenient for our tired, hot group. Driving up to the Parador was quite an experience. After giving your name at a very exclusive looking gate, you drive past huge groups of tourists walking back to their cars on streets that seem to be "private access only." The hotel had sufficient parking that was very convenient. Though it is very expensive to stay at the Parador de Granada, the location and historical ambiance is worth every penny.
On our tour of Alhambra, our guide recommended the terrace as a good place for lunch. We enjoyed some lovely fresh food, cold drinks under the shade of umbrellas. Our tour of Alhambra was wonderful, and this pleasant lunch finished off a wonderful day.
I was told that this was the only place to stay when visiting the Alhambra and that was good information. This charming historic building is beautiful and the terrace for dining overlooks the site lite at night. Our room also overlooked the Alhambra and the gardens. Service was very helpful and the breakfast was delicious.
We decided to splurge and spend a couple of nights in the Parador de Granada during our summer 2017 trip to Spain... and we are very glad we did! While the cost was high (and will likely keep us from ever returning), it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that has left us with many pleasant memories. The hotel staff was very friendly, professional, and accommodating. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. For those who might be interested, the courtesy bar in the room contained a variety of treats, all at very reasonable prices. The best part is that the property is located on the grounds of the Alhambra. This alone justifies the price. The view from our room was spectacular, as our window opened up on the Generalife palace. It was also very nice to walk outside the hotel and be in the Alhambra, where we could take in all the various sites with leisure. I feel justified in giving the Parador de Granada hotel 5 stars, but you should not stay here for the dining. For those who can afford to splurge, staying here is a special treat, just to surrounded by all the history and beauty. A word of advice: You do not want to eat at the Parador's restaurant. The views are great, but the food and service are not. We walked into town for a meal, but got lost in the chaotic streets of the Albaicin. Not a big deal, but it did derail our first evening somewhat. Instead, use Trip Advisor or Google Maps to locate a place to dine and take a taxi to and from. We are very happy to have stayed in the Parador de Granada, Cheers! Rod
The hotel was an amazing palace, as part of the Alhambra it made the experience more exciting. The hotel and staff were wonderful the restaurant however was a little slow on service and hospitality more than once. The room was huge and the shower amazing.
This hotel is inside the Alhambra and is the most convenient place to stay if you want to visit the Alhambra. The rooms are very comfortable. The food is divine. There is a medieval aura about the place. Great place for history buffs.
When we arrived after a hot and long journey we were graciously greeted - we had all sorts of questions and the front desk staff were incredibly helpful, not just that first day but throughout the stay. The grounds are lovely and our room was very nice (although the view was of the AC unit lol). My only complaint was that the shower was so complicated I couldn't figure out how to work it at first. The food at the restaurant was good, not great perhaps, but fine and very convenient, and the terrace is lovely. The best part of course was the location, especially in the extreme heat. It was fantastic to literally be a five minute walk from the Nasrid palace. Again, thanks to the front desk staff for all their help.
