Admittedly I haven't toured the other facilities in Granada but, after staying at the Alhambra Palace, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. While the facility is not new/pristine/high tech, etc., it's all about the location. When you can wake up, open the curtains and observe a spectacular view from your balcony, well, there's not much more that is needed. Be... More

Stayed here in April as it was close to the Alhambra. A great old world style hotel with a real atmosphere. The rooms, whilst not huge, were adequate. However we needed to sleep 3 and whilst we paid for a 3 bed room, we simply got a standard room with an extra bed in it. After talking to the reception... More

Great hospitality and service in this hotel. Personnel was courteous and professional, and often kind. The room was spacious enough for 3 adults (not that frequent in European hotels). The extra bed was a real one, not a cot. We had a great view of Granada, including in our bathroom. The hotel has a beautiful Moresque architecture, and it is... More

We are so glad that we reserved in the wonderful Moorish Revival hotel. Perched on the edge of the hill, the entrance looks through the tiled and marbled lobby to the whole city of Granada. In addition our room had the same view, a few stories up--as did the Andalusian tiled bathroom. Everything was perfect: location a short walk from... More

It's old and plumbing needs an update. Front desk is over worked and rushed, but they do try. To see the Alhambra this s the place to stay. To see Granda there are other choices down the hill. On the flip side cab rides are quick and will get you anywhere.

When you read through previous TripAdvisor comments in advance of your booking you expect to know what you are buying, but on this occasion I disagree with the "ideal location" label ! This hotel is well located if your sole purpose is to visit Alhambra, but this only takes 3 hours or so and this hotel is otherwise rather isolated.... More

Very beautiful hotel very close to the Alhambra (walking distance) and perfect for the cheap little buses that take you up to the palace and also down and round to the pretty Albaicin area. Beautiful birdsong from the trees and gardens of the Alhambra. Maybe its the present exchange rate, but prices for bar drinks (wine and coffee/tea) were very... More

I have nothing to criticise. The hotel itself is beautiful and in the most fantastic setting. The communal areas are stunning and there is plenty of space for relaxation inside or outside on the terrace overlooking the city. We had a standard twin room which was spacious. The decor in the bathroom surprises initially but is very charming. Fabulous views... More

For this price (140 euro - triple room* without breakfast - in February) I would rather choose a different hotel. The position of the Alhambra Hotel is great, but nothing else. The rooms desperately need renovation. The smell in quite unpleasant (mustiness) The hotel does not have a parking, you'll have to park in the Alhambra's parking (10 minuts walk)..... More

Wanted to stay as close to the Alhambra as possible, but not pay the rate that the Parador wanted. Reasonable rate on Booking.com (135 euros). Was lucky to get free parking in the front of the hotel (limited space available). Common areas are quite impressive with great views of the city and mountains. (and mentioned in more detail in many... More
