We stayed at the Parador de Grenada for the two nights surrounding our visit to the Alhambra. The location is perfect, since the hotel is adjacent to the Alhambra and, being a former monastery, forms part of the overall site. There is nothing monastic about the hotel, though. It has lovely courtyards and furnishings and the dining room is very... More

The Parador is very expensive, and it was the worst room we had by far in Spain, we would not recommend anyone staying here. It needs a makeover. We used the laundry and felt gauged on that too! The restaurant and service there was good. Needs help.

We decided to splurge in our stay in Granada by staying at the Parador. It was a beautiful, ancient building that had been renovated in high luxury style. It was also very convenient, as we could easily walk to the old town (although there was a very steep hill to climb) and the Alhambra was next door. The staff was... More

We just spent one night with the wonderful folks at The Parador for our visit to Alhanbra. We had a small suite that was very comfortable and immaculate. The bed was great as were the pillows. The front desk clerk, Peppe recommended a great spot for dinner where we could watch the sunset and the lights twinkle on in the... More

This is a very special place to stay and enjoy the spectacular location and surroundings. Our room was clean and well thought out although we did have an issue with the bath which the parador staff did their very best to try and resolve - however this did not detract in any way from our stay in this wonderful location....

The Parador location and views are unmatched and the ambience is untouched. There is something about wandering the gardens or the walls of the Alhambra after the crowds are gone that takes one back in time. If one has romance or imagination, staying here allows that luxury. So ignore those negative reviews that focus on a lapse of service or... More

We paid a huge amount of money to stay in the Alhambra grounds and enjoy the magic of this wonderful site. Yes the magic is there but the Parador does not offer the quality of experience to match. Our rooms were in a modern annexe and completely soulless. Mattresses as firm as rocks. I gathered all the pillows and cushions... More

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting the Alhambra. The building is lovely and it is set in the Alhambra grounds so it makes for a very convenient visit. The food at the hotel is also very good. The rooms however were only okay and very expensive.

Dear guest, Thank you for writing your comments and the positive aspects that you mention. We understand that the room price has seemed high, but we believe that sleep at least once in life within the grounds of the Alhambra is a unique experience. Derived from this exceptional location the cost of all supplies and services are also exceptional. More

Thanks to a knowledgeable friend we booked a day and night time tour of the Alhambra months ahead. The Parador gave us no hint of this when we booked and were unable to help with the bookings when I asked for help. This was the fourth Parador we stayed in on a trip through Andalucia. It is absolutely the best... More

This is the premier parador in Spain and certainly lives up to its reputation. It is very expensive, but for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Being on the magnificent grounds of the Alhambra and being able to see it at all times of the day and night was magical. We had a lovely room with a magnificent view.... More
