We stayed 5 nights, and it was an exceptional experience. More than just the room. We had a second floor room, which was quite large with seating area with couch and two chairs. Room also had a small desk, a clothes bureau, and a armoire for clothing, so lots of storage for a long stay. This is a very small... More

Perfect location with views of the Alhambra and exploring Granada by foot. The hotel was great - a modern renovation of a historic building, surprisingly large room, and a complimentary bottle of wine. I was very happy staying here and would happily visit again.

Stayed here with two friends in May 2015. Hotel is in the old part of town, beautifully renovated, great amenities. Breakfast is broad (if you don't expect a fried one) and plentiful, and was available relatively late. Location is stunning. Our room (a suite) overlooked the Alhambra. Hotel is a short stroll to the main shopping streets of Granada. Staff... More

We stayed at this amazing room, like a loft with huge space and a sitting area. The view of Ahlambra is unobstructed and is gorgeous at night. For what we paid, we really couldnt believe what we saw whe we walked up the stairs to the room. THe hotel is right on the Paseo Darro, right under the Ahlambra. Really... More

The hotel was so close to happenings in Granada that you walked out the front door - which was locked, and everything was within 5 minutes walk. It was quiet and clean - with very friendly & helpful staff.

This unobtrusive former Muslim monastery was absolutely beautiful. The hotel is located on a narrow street fronting the river and has very few rooms.The ambiance in the common areas was exotic and calming, reinforcing the hotel's history. Our room was a gem, with a dark wood vaulted ceiling and beams incorporating the eight point star.The overall space was elegant yet... More

We stayed in the Apartment. First disadvantage is, their receiption is very far from the apartment complex (at least 5-10 min walk, depending on if you have luggage or not, on a very narrow street). This is not very ideal, if you need something. When we checked in, first thing we wanted do was laundry. But, the washer did not... More

This must have been one of the best if not the best of our stays during our trip to Spain. The hotel has a luxurious feeling and all modern amenities without loosing its charm and character. The location is great and beautiful with views to the Alhambra and Carrera del Darro from some rooms. Their customer service is excellent, you... More

What a wonderful hotel and what great quality for the price! From the moment you enter the door you get a very luxurious yet medieval Arabic feeling upon you. The hotel room was exactly that as well. Very luxurious, great bed and a wonderful bathroom. The breakfast was simple but nice. The only little thing i can mention is that... More

We have chosen a family apartment (about 100m away from the hotel). It had 2 bedrooms and a large living/dining/kitchen space. Fitting was relatively new and very tasteful The location of the apartment was absolutely centrally at the foot of the Alhambra. Yes, please follow the hotel recommendation to park your car in a public parking area and walk then... More
