Other more luxurious hotels in Granada cannot match the location dictated by the [preferable]early access to the Alhambra offered by this little oasis inside the grounds. It is small, it is practical and very definitely Spanish. The staff work hard but cheerfully to cope with the continuous flow of passers-by dropping in for a snack or liquid refreshment.

Rented a car in Madrid and drove to Hotel America in the Alhambra complex. Our GPS worked great, which was lucky because we struggled a bit with the map the Hotel America sent earlier. Parked in the Alhambra lot, and the attendant in the information booth pointed us in the right direction. However, we had no idea the right direction... More

My husband’s childhood memory of Alhambra brought us to the idea of having an overnight stay in the Alhambra complex. We drove early from Seville and swung by the Sierra Nevada ski station first before heading to the Alhambra complex. The drive from Sierra Nevada and the Alhambra complex were pretty closed; around 40km. We parked the car at the... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Hotel America - very helpful staff, convenient location for relaxing before and after the hours sightseeing at the Alhambra. Room 212 was clean, large, airy, and comfortable - queen bed, and sofa - quiet for overlooking the front of the hotel. Up two flights of stairs. Our friends stayed on the ground floor in room...

Needing a break after a couple of serious sightseeing in Lahambra, we noticed a litle door through wich we could see a quaint oldfashioned tapio with small marble tables and bamboo chairs. The name above the door read "Hotel America *" One star !! Well inside you stepped back 50-70 years in time. Fantastic, ! The beams holding up the... More

There was no hot water so we could not take a shower in the morning. It was a shame, especially when we had a guest from overseas, who was in Granada and Andalucia for the first time. Our guest could not sleep well as the room was cold. The location is otherwise good. The parador next door is a better... More

This could be a wonderful place, it has the greatest of locations and certain elderly charm. The rooms are unpretentious basic Spanish with traditional old fashioned bathrooms & only soap provided.We couldn't close the long windows that overlooked the patio where residents and visitors alike were served refreshments until 5pm. Space is at a premium and the communal seating area... More

This hotel is attached to the Alhambra and next door to the Parador. There were a few things lacking - decent towels and toiletries and the breakfast was unimaginative. Rooms are small and ours had no real cupboard but we appreciated the location.

Whilst walking around the gardens, we stopped here for a refreshment break as it was a sweltering day. Walk through the door and out onto a patio with tables and grape vines overhead offering shade. It was a really nice setting and at €5.60 for two pints of Sangria, very reasonable for where it is situated. Quite a few people... More

The rooms are set round the central courtyard of this pretty historic converted property so it is just as well that the hotel only serves its own guests after the late lunch favoured by the Spanish.Particularly so, as the window needed to be open to keep things fairly cool, as the air con was not due to be in use...
