We spent two nights here and have totally mixed feelings about the experience. We left very happy, feeling that it is a beautiful hotel with fantastic service. And the breakfast is really good (and you can order delightful eggs and smoothies at no extra charge). Staying in this former convent is really unique. Our first night was on the top... More

We spend two nights in Room 225 which is located on the top floor facing one of the two courtyards of the original buildings. While I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to spend a night or two in Granada I would rate it a four star plus hotel with five star charm, and a truly great dinning room,... More

This was the best hotel experience of our entire trip to Spain. We liked this hotel better the the Hotel Alfonso in Seville. The hotel has all the state of the art amenities and comforts, with wonderful blend of old and new. The room we had was amazing. I forgot the room number, I think it was #226, part of... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the hotel. The hotel was easy to find by car and had all the facilities of a good hotel. Our room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The location is perfect for exploring the main sites. We would definately stay here again.

What a great hotel. We will never stay anywhere else in Granada should we return. We booked a superior room, and got a lovely quiet room with its own terrace overlooking the beautiful courtyard. The rooms are not huge, but are really well appointed and very comfortable. It was very clean. The staff are hugely friendly, and very, very helpful.... More

We have just spent four nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Check-in was carried out quickly and professionally, a member of staff took our car to the parking garage (a car is not necessary for exploring the city and there are many driving/parking restrictions) and a porter was immediately available to take our luggage...

Stayed 2 nights there before headed to La Bobadilla (which is, being a member of "The Leading (Small) Hotels of the World", of course, a completely different world). Room and bathroom were ok-ish, a bit small, only one chair to sit down, no desk (like most 4 star hotels in Granada have), just a little coffee table. Wifi, but not... More

This is a great, beautiful, small hotel. We were booked in one of the rooms on the front side of the hotel with view of the street. With the double windows, there is hardly any sound audible when in the room. The room is a bit smaller than you'd be used to in hotels of same class - we were... More

A 3 night stay in November en route to the Alpujarras. Great location.If you don't mind big hills, you can walk to the Alhambra. Granada is a nice walking city. We loved our room, toiletries and linens. They courtyard is beautiful. We got terriffic advice from the front desk staff on where to get our "Churro" fix and Tapas. They... More
