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.

Situated a short distance from one of the main squares , beside a river, looking up at Alhambra . What could be more perfect ? 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

This small boutique hotel is situated at the foot of the Alhambra Palace, a 20 minute walk from its entrance. Superbly located in what seems to be an affluent part of town if offers perfect access to cafes and restaurants. The reception staff are bilingual and friendly, this hotel would be our first choice for accommodation if we return to... More

Perfect location for sightseeing without a car in the historic Albaycin area of Granada. Lots of eateries and tourist services nearby, and a view of Alhambra from the Hotel. The room was modern, clean, air conditioned and comfortable. The staff was courteous and accommodating, as well as English speaking. The open central courtyard permitted fresh air into our room at...

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
