Antonio couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are magical in their decor. The breakfast was carefully prepared and delicious. The view enchanting. In the Albycin. Location perfect for exploring old Granada

I will not repeat the wonderful descriptions others have already provided. The property is exactly as described by other five star ratings. The staff Julio and Antonio went out of their way to make our state pleasurable. Also confirming the topography is a bit difficult for those having difficulty with slope or uneven surfaces. Our dinner at the nearby Mirador... More

Solar Montes Claros well deserves its favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. The Alhambra views from the patio were lovely, the king-size bed was very comfortable, and the Moorish-style decor was charming. The staff (Antonio, Julio and Manfred) were helpful and attentive to any requests. As stated by others, access would be quite difficult for a person with mobility issues, as it... More

Solar Montes Claros is situated in a wonderful position with spectacular views of The Alhambra. Lovely room, clean and very peaceful and well looked after by Julio. Easy and pleasant walk into centre of Granada passing many good bars and restaurants. A must visit to the Alhambra Palaces , book well in advance!

From the outside Solar Montes Claros is quite unprepossessing but once inside the guest house it is another world. The property has a Moorish theme with lamps and artefacts picked up by the owner on his travels in North Africa. Guests are immediately lulled into tranquillity by the soft and ambient lighting. We stayed in the Fenicia Room which is... More

The views of the Alhambra were incredible. Unfortunately we only stayed one night - I would love to come back to Granada and stay again. Beautiful house, very comfortable rooms, and I think a great deal for what you get. Only caveat is that the climb up from the street and up the stairs might be challenging for some -... More

1. Warning: if you have any mobility issues, read no further. Staying here means slopes and stairs and narrow twists. Many. 2. Take the taxi offered to transfer to the hotel. Arrive ready to enjoy the room and the view. I truly wanted to stay in our room (Saba) and sit in bed while looking out over rooftops to the... More

I stayed at Solar Montes Claros (SMC) for two weeks this spring while attending Spanish classes at nearby Carmen de las Cuevas. SMC was quiet, charming, elegant, cozy, clean, comfortable, and in very good repair. My spacious room (Persia) had a panoramic view of the Alhambra - as I think all of the rooms do. The bed was firm and... More

To stay in this hotel you must be able to cope with steps. There are a good number outside from the taxi (or bus stop) even before those needed to be negotiated inside. And we stayed in the saba room on the top floor which has steps between the two sections of the room. Antonio helped us with the luggage... More
