Great place to meet the family. It is centrally located near the Daro River, Albayzín and Barrio Realejo (formerly the Jewish Quarter) neighborhoods. The first square to be built by the Christians is known as the "New Square," even though it is over 400 years old. Great ice cream across the street and nice starting point for our Segway tour...

I love Plaza Nueva for the buzz. But please don't eat or drink in this square. Because it is a tourist trap the food quality is mediocre and the prices high.There are many better establishments only a stones throw away in the side streets or one of the other Plazas. Try the atmospheris Plaza Trinidad for example.

Absolutely one of my favorite cities. I could not get enough - it was quaint and beautiful. I loved all the places I visited here.

Just got done staying on the Plaza Nueva for 2 nights! Fabulous location! Close to buses and walking to sights! Patio dining everywhere and if you walk to the end of the plaza to the left of the church you can walk along the river to tapas bars and a restaurant with Alhambra views on your right not too far...

Although the Plaza Nueva is not one of the best looking places of granada, it is ok to stay in the neighborhood because a lot of the interesting things are within walking distance. The Alhambra for example is 15 minutes away (steep walk up though). Lot’s of restaurants and tapas bars too.

Cafes, bars, pleasant walking and a view of the Alhambra Palace - add in warm, winter sunshine - Granada is the perfect place for a winter break.

Not much going on in the plaza, but you'll find yourself near many restaurants (Spanish and Morroccan), bars, and morroccan looking stores.

Plaza Nueva is a typical square crowded with tourists. The road to the north by the river is very interesting. Don't miss that. There are shops selling various things to tourists and restaurants. Nothing special but worth a visit if you are in Granada.
