We only ate in outside for supper so cannot comment on the. Hote l. It appeared lovely and quiet. My wife is gluten and dairy intolerant and they have a gluten free menu . Food and service were good and the view is spectacular. Taxi from the city is a must and make sure you know whether a concert is... More

The level of service in this hotel is completely out of tune with the setting and any reasonable expectations. The prevailing attitude is one of "take it or leave it", and it reminded me of visits to Spanish Consulates to renew passports, which on reflection is not that surprising for a state managed affair. Our room wasn't ready when we... More

A confusing blend of the good and not so makes it hard to summarise a wide spectrum in a single rating. The good: 1 Location in the precincts of the Alhambra is very special 2 the restaurant (must book!) was good, the service attentive and the view and peace memorable Needs working on: 1 checking into an old Franciscan monastery,...

This is a truly beautiful hotel, and a historic monument in its own right, as well as being ideally placed for visiting the Alhambra palaces. It's also easy enough to get into town - a 20 minute walk down a steepish hill through the park - although we generally took a bus or taxi to get back to the hotel.... More

We stayed here for just one night on our trip through Andalusia. We were just interested in seeing the Alhambra and were not quite excited about visiting other attractions of Granada. For that purpose the hotel is perfect. It is located within the Alhambra and the highlights are within footsteps. Superior rooms come with Alhambra Garden View, a large bathroom,... More

We stayed 3 nights here, and spend the days in the fantastic area surrounding the Parador. It is just an amazing place, and you really feel the belonging to history. No luxury, but good standard, good beds. But you reallly go there for other reasons than the room...

This was our first experience staying at a Parador. We were impressed with the service provided by the front desk staff and cleaning crew. The location was terrific - on the Alhambra grounds - and allowed us to stop in to the hotel room easily throughout the day. We stayed in this location and Cordoba and found both Paradors very...

It is a magical experience to stay in the Alhambra. Enjoy the beauty of the views and gardens. The restaurant is excellent for breakfast, dinner and drinks. Reserve dinner in advance. The mattress was not comfortable. Please let new box spring mattresses.

There are some good staff and there is a good parador here trying to emerge despite awful management. First you need to find the Parador. There is just one tiny sign at ground level, easily missed, when you drive by the entrance. We were then shown where the entrance was by the attendant at the car park at the end... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, we only had lunch on the terrace at this historic hotel located in the former Convent of San Francisco. We had a view of the Generalife Gardens. It was a nice break between viewing the Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba towers and Museum. It’s located between the palaces and the Generalife (veering off just a little).... More
