Getting to the Santa Paula by car isn't particularly easy due to Granada's one way system and narrow streets. Once there, however, this hotel proved comfortable, quiet at night and staffed by pleasant, helpful staff. Partly due to Trip Advisor reviews we upgraded to a superior room on the inner courtyard - €44 extra per night. I'm not sure it... More

This spectacular boutique hotel is absolutely charming...and the associates throughout the hotel were all marvelous and extremely helpful. This is my first time in Spain and I am seeing that everyone in Spain is incredibly friendly and welcoming... I only had one night in Madrid because of travel issues but I'm glad it was spent at the AC Palacio Retiro...... More

Everything about this hotel was first rate! We were traveling with a family of 5 adults in three rooms. Check in was efficient and we were all next to each other. The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is located in a great part of the city, except it was a bit tricky driving to the front door.... More

Stayed two nights in early december which is a great time to visit the region. Quiet great prices and still warm. The hotel is situated within walking distance of most of the sites. Also within a stroll of literally dozens of restaurants and tapas bars. The hotel is very comfortable and has a unique bar and dining area in terms... More

My wife and I are frequent travelers, usually staying in Marriott or Starwood properties in Asia, Europe or North America. This hotel has been one of the best places we have stayed recently. Our room was facing the convent courtyard (unique and very enjoyable view), was big enough, clean and functional. Nice bathroom also. Service was top notch, with special... More

We stayed in two rooms in the winter and had a wonderful stay. The location of the hotel is top notch and the hotel valet parking was excellent, especially in Granada where having a car is a liability as you try to navigate the narrow one way streets. Check in was fast and service was superb at the front desk...and... More

We were originally booked in a quaint hotel in old town. Unfortunately, the smell coming from the bathroom was absolutely horrible. They told us it was because they were close to the river and that they could remove the smell, but it didn't go away after their procedure. Determined to flee the horrible odor, I set out to find another... More

Granada itself is one of the most incredible places I have visited. Staying in this first class accommodation was the only way I thought it could have been any better. The rooms were very nice, playing on the moorish theme. We had a double courtyard to go through to get to our cute area of the hotel. The courtyards were... More

This is not a 5 stars hotel as touted. Four Seasons, St Regis, Mandarin Oriental, Banyan Tree are 5 stars. This property is 3.5 stars to me. The room we were given has no safe, no kettle, no coffee/tea, no aircon. Only heater is available. Yes it's almost December but my room was too warm and stuffy. When I told... More
