Once you look past the foyer/ground floor, you realise how overpriced and run-down this place is. We had driven over to Granada from Arcos, which is where our base was, so we didn't take our passports with us. It didn't say we needed these to check-in ANYWHERE on their website, our booking confirmation or anywhere else on the emails we... More

Dear Customer, Thanks for taking the time to comment our services and help us to improve, but we sincerely regret the bad impression you had about our hotel. We would like to comment several issues: - Passports. According to Spanish law, in all the national territory, all hotels must require Passport or ID in force to all guests staying at... More

This hotel is just as good as the photos we were not disappointed upon our arrival. Excellent staff, from check in, breakfast to departure. We paid for the city view room and so worth the extra. We looked over the city below and up to the snow capped mountains. The bathroom was a great size for 2 and very clean... More

I really into Hotel Alhambra Palace. 2 month ago, i went to this hotel for my honeymoon. I considered three things to choose the hotel it's Price, Clean room and location As matter of fact, Price and Clean did not goes beyond my expectation. BUT, Location which is absolutely close to Alhambra Palace is the best for me. ALSO, it... More

A little over 110 years old but retaining the service and attention of the age of the Grand Tour. The Alhambra Palace is a five minute walk to the actual Alhambra and ten to the city. Very much enjoyed the lobby bar area, which was great for lunch, snaks pre diner cocktail or night cap. The style and design is... More

We chose this hotel primarily because of its proximity to the Alhambra; only a 10 minutes walk trough a wooded area. The hotel is almost on the top of the hill. From the balcony of the bar you have an amazing view over the city and the Sierra Nevada's snowy peaks. The Moorish inspired decor of the hotel reminded us... More

I expected much more from this hotel that was built in 1910 as a luxurious casino. The decor was interesting and being within walking distance of the Alhambra, made it very convenient. However for the town of Grenada down below, it involved a very stiff and steep walk back up to the hotel after dinner! Good exercise, but not what... More

I booked this hotel based on its history, architecture and location (being close to the Alhambra and having such great views). The hotel has an old world charm with an Arabian Nights flavour- which is great. However, at the price one pays, today's guests expect certain basic amenities whcih were sadly lacking. The decor is great, the location stunning (great... More

Dear guest, Thanks for your kind comment. We appreciate the positive aspects of the hotel that you quote. Regarding the rooms, we refer you that were renovated in 2007 (decoration) and in 2012 (air conditioning, electricity, Flat TV and bathrooms). With reference to the iron, for security reasons, in Spanish city hotels is very rare find it in guest rooms.... More

We're looking forward for a "thousand-and-one-nights" but we're somewhat disappointed. The entrance very nicely décorated. Front-desk staff seem to be very busy and made us feel like adding to their work load. Our room has the number 701 but in fact the numbering is misleading because is 2floors below the lobby and especially close to the lift and the entrance... More

Lovely interconnected suites, cery clean & well lighted with amazing city views. Bathrooms are clean but dated. Compared to the Alfonso XIII in Seville where we stayed, the breakfast buffet or the continental in-room breakfast is of pretty low standard. The overall menu is limited. The bar staff are friendly but the waiters are not, specially a young waiter with... More

Regarding the breakfast service, it is a American style buffet, with more than 105 hot and cold products, and also products for diets, celiacs and vegetarians, including the possibility of order à la carte what you desire, even if it is not in the buffet.

The hotel is super cold in December. Except in the rooms, they have no/little hest in the common areas...to the point where we had to wear our coats in the bar! The rooms and bathrooms are more in line with an average hotel. The food is also very average. You have to request a bathrobe, slippers and even hair conditioner... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, Granada is a cold city in winter by the proximity of Sierra Nevada, although the hotel offers newly renovated heating throughout the building. We are sorry if there was a specific fault in your room, although I would tell you that is not common. We want to see you again to thank... More
