Lovely Boutique Hotel in the old Town, very clean & a very reasonable price. Complimentary bottle of wine which was a very nice touch. Within walking distance to all amenities , great little quirky bar just over the bridge. Would certainly stay here again.

We loved every minute of our 3 days in Granada and apart from our visit to the Alhambra we hardly left the area around Shine. The streets and the hotel itself are so full of history and we felt quite smug looking down from The Alhambra when the guide pointed the area out to our group. Our room looked directly... More

We stayed in the suite at upper level for two nights. We paid 340 USD. I have not stayed in other hotels in this area but this was too expensive for what we got in comparison with other places in Spain including Seville, Barcelona and Valencia. The room looks great when you enter with nice view, beautiful furniture and bathroom... More

My husband and I stayed at the Shine for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location beside the River Darro, below the Alhambra and a few minutes walk to Plaza Nueva. Shine is also in walking distance to many shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and most of Granada's tourist attractions. Take the advice of... More

Having stayed in more expensive hotels in Granada, we were delighted with the standard of this accommodation which is at the base of the Alhambra next to the River Darro. A complimentary bottle of wine was most welcome. The check out is 12.00 and the staff allow guests to leave bags in the store room so another full day of... More

First, you should not follow your GPS to get there, it may take you to impossible tiny streets (ours did and we almost got stranded...). You should go through the restricted traffic area to the hotel or even better, follow the hotel's recommendation, go straight to the parking and walk 15 mn with your luggage or take a taxi. That...

we stayed 2 nights in this lovely hotel in Granada. the location was excellent within easy walking distance of the centre of Granada. We found some very nice bars and restaurants close by. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed however it was an internal room which overlooked the internal courtyard and had no natural light, it was... More

Stayed overnight in this spotlessly clean hotel. It's in a lovely location and within easy walking distance of the centre of Granada. No parking and I would recommend not trying to drive around the old town. We parked our car in a 24 hour car park and took a taxi to the hotel which was fine. The room was clean... More

Excellent location just beside the stream at the foot of the hill the Alhambra is on, and thus a short walk to everything. We stayed in one of their housekeeping apartments, a bit further walk up the road from the hotel. They have done a good job of the renovation, and the apartment is very attractive, but they should stay... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment down the street from the actual hotel, so I do not know how the main hotel is like. The apartment was nicely furnished with full kitchen, washing machine and one bathroom, AIR CONDITIONING! WiFi was only in the main building not in this apartment. i think they were in the process of getting... More
