Stayed here for 1 night in July with husband, mum and son. We had 2 x rooms and can't fault the place! It's situated in my favourite area of Granada and at night the views of the Alhambra walls are fabulous. You literally can walk right past it given it's a large door in a wall without ostentatious signs etc.... More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for two nights and couldn't have asked for more. The location was perfect, set right beside the river with easy access to the Albayzin, the Arabic baths and the Alhambra. Despite the busy location, the hotel itself is very quiet and peaceful. The room was lovely and the staff were extremely helpful.... More

Located on a narrow cobbled street beside the Darro river, this hotel is an excellent place to stay in Granada. We took a taxi from the bus station and the taxi dropped us just in front of the hotel. The hotel has an old-world charm to it. We found a complimentary bottle of wine in our room when we arrived!... More

This small hotel is in a fabulous location with views to the Alhambra from your window. Rooms are large, modern and have a comfortable bed. It is right in the middle of the old town with restaurants and shops everywhere but it is still quiet. The hotel has a central courtyard, very moorish in style. We loved our stay here,... More

We took the hotel's advice and parked in the town, and got a taxi up the narrow and atmospheric lane. The hotel gives you a discount on the car parking. The hotel exterior is unprepossessing, just a huge wooden door, but inside you are in a lovely galleried courtyard. Check in was efficient and there was cold lemon drink and... More

Stayed four nights in a lovely two bedroom apartment just up the street from the hotel. Perfect location, on one of the narrow streets of the old town, with a number of interesting sites nearby. Well equipped apartment with washing machine, wifi, and a/c. Small balcony overlooking the street below. Apartment accessed from cool and quiet inner courtyard.

A large, well equipped room, comfortable beds and a well appointed modern bathroom.This 15th. Century building has been well restored and sympathetically modernised where needed, really love it. BUT! There is an internal noise issue... More
