Stayed here in February for 4 nights with teenage son with the intention of visiting the Alhambra Palace. The hotel was situated very close to the Palace, which could be seen from the balcony of the hotel. The hotel is accessed from the street by a very understated, large wooden door, which reveals a small, Moorish-style central courtyard around which... More

We stayed in this delightful boutique hotel at the begining of semana santa, Holy Week. What an experience. The staff could not have been more helpful. Lovely breakfasts. Close to the places we wanted to visit. A magnicent procession made its way down and up the street outside. We did not mind the noise!

Although in Granada only for one night, the whole experience was an unforgettable one. Soon after booking the apartment, I was contacted by a very friendly staff (Gemma), and she helped me to arrange the transportation from the airport to the hotel. I highly recommend taking a cab from the airport - if you're travelling in a group of 3-4... More

This place is a hidden oasis. We did as a previous reviewer had done and moved here after an apt rental weren't quite up to our expectations. We had walked by this unassuming but imposing door and just out of curiosity I googled it when we got back to our room and then the next morning we stopped in to... More

My two girlfriends rented the apartment for two nights. It's about a 2-5 min walk from the main building in a small 3-story building that's shared with other residents. The apartment faces the main little street that's right below the Alhambra, great location! The building is quite charming and gives off a very authentic ambiance. Some quick things to keep... More

My husband and I fled an airbnb rental nearby and stayed at this hotel very last minute. We were very fortunate to be met with all of the comforts of home at Shine Albyzine. We travel frequently and rarely does one find this type of hospitality --especially at this price. Front desk staff went above and beyond the call of... More

Hotel Albazyin is situated in the old town and faces towards the magnificent Alhambra and the river Darro. We had a very pleasant four nights stay at the Shine Albayzin, If you really want to feel this beautiful city properly and visiting places without rushing here and there we would definitely recommend at least three or four days. We booked... More

Stayed here for two nights in a superior room on 1st floor at the front of the building. The hotel is tricky to find and is just a big wooden door..a little disconcerting on first approach. Once inside the building is stunning if not a bit dingy, bad lighting. I think some standard rooms do not have external windows so... More

We recently stayed at Shine Albayzin for two nights in late November 2013. The hotel itself is very nice, great styling, clean and trendy. I particularly liked the overall style of the facility and design of the rooms. This was my favorite hotel of the four we stayed in during the recent Spain trip. i would definitely stay here again...
