Parador De Granada4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Modern confortable rooms in an old monastery. Unique dinning experience with helpful and nice staff. Faboulous bathe, confortable beds. With a unseasonable heath wave, air conditioning work perfect. Food was great, the terrace restaurant with outstanding views. Quiet, relax, great taste. For a romantic stay or for history highly recommended
Spain is an amazing county to visit. This parador was a standout. We asked the hotel to arrange a private tour the second day after our arrival and the guide assigned to us was beyond anything we expected. He spent his entire career studying the Alhambra and his command of the history and folklore, including many interesting details was superb. He brought it alive for us. Thanks to the parador for arranging such a wonderful guide. As to the rest of the hotel, the service at the front desk and the restaurant was top quality. Clearly the staff enjoys their job and appreciates the opportunity to assist guests in anyway they can. The restaurant itself was very good and also convenient after long days touring. Don't hesitate to stay here and if it's in your budget ask them to arrange for the private tour. Perhaps the highlight of two weeks spent in Spain!
This hotel will get you by the Hostage Method: it's the only game in town inside the ancient walled palace apart from the very budget Hotel America. However, the America has much, much better food. We ate in both. And I must grudgingly admit that the Parador is very attractive, clean, with nice rooms and good levels of comfort. What lets it down is the very poor attitude of the staff and the grotty food. The main restaurant in a minor exception in that the food is OK (if a bit more ambitious than capable) and the service friendly and reasonably efficient but the terrace bistro is poor: greasy unappetising food served by the sort of staff who are experts at not having their eyes caught. So for lunch, go next door to the America, which I think is one star but which is friendly, really pretty, and has lovely local food. The low point however is not the bistro but the check in desk, where I saw one elderly lady being told very rudely to wait while the people behind the desk appeared to do everything slowly, ineffectively and in a bad temper. I don't know, maybe their terms and conditions are bad, maybe they are badly managed, or maybe they know that whatever they do, the punters will continue to flock to the place because of the location and history. Honestly, if I went back I'd stay again because the positives outweigh the negatives - but only just. Which is a crying shame.
The room (Junior Suite) was exceptional with stunning views over the Generalife gardens. Spotlessly clean with excellent restaurant and staff. Highly recommended to celebrate a special occasion. We also took the Alhambra tour organised by the Parador which we would highly recommend.
To visit La Alhambra is a must, to spend a time having something to eat at El parador is well worthy specially knowing you will be inside the Alhambra. Go and have a coffe or a drink or something to eat. The food is not high quality but you deserve a break after visiting La Alhambra: You will not be dissapointed!!!
Beautiful hotel, but not worth the price. We have stayed in many paradores, and usually find them fantastic. This was a disappointment, because while the experience was nice, it did not justify the cost.
Being able to be at the Alhambra after all the tourists left, was great, very quiet and tranquil. Dinner was excellent and lunch on the patio was beautiful. The Alhambra is such a big place and it was great to return to the hotel to rest and take breaks, then go back out and enjoy the amazing place again. We spent only one night and we felt we spent enough time to see everything, but did not spend any time in Granada. Hotel very nice and staff helpful
The Location of the Hotel above the Alhambra is simply stunning, the Hotel itself is super, also the Service, disregarding peculiarities of the spanish personnel. The way to the Hotel by car is not very well signposted. As we were there at Pentecost, it was pretty crowded it was wise to book guides and tickets fot Alham,bra and other visits in advance.
Yes it's expensive, - but how often do you get to stay in the gardens of one of the worlds most beautiful palaces. Everything was perfect - staff, meals, drinks, etc. So nothing to moan about. I have visited Granada several times over the last 60 years, but this stay made it the most memorable.
Fantastic location and amazing views on Alhambra. However the reception and the rooms are like in an ordinary hotel BUT you pay a fortune! The decoration does not match at all the Parador style and the atmosphere of the location. The breakfast service need improvement too .
