Rooms fine, pleasant balconies, service ditto, delightful gardens, excellent location just outside town - but seriously let down by the restaurant where the staff are good but the food is not good at all. If you must eat there stick to simple stuff but if you have a choice there are splendid restaurants a short taxi-ride away (and taxis in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights last week in room 301 which was perfect, with a view of Generalife gardens. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The only criticism I can make is that the shower floor is lethal! It is quite dark and you need to be in the shower to see how to work it. (It has... More

This was our penultimate stop in our touring southern Spain Holiday. We chose to stay at the Parador for easy access to The Alhambra and it was worth it. To be able to be at the entrance at 8.30am was excellent. The hotel staff were very helpful and our room had a wonderful view of the Generalife gardens. The peace... More

Having decided to visit alhambra, the decision on hotel left no contest. The parador is in alhambra, the convent converted into a luxury hotel. On arrival, we were met and offered a better room than the one we booked, it felt like the staff were waiting for us. So unusual and unexpected. Getting there is a little mind boggling, twisty,...

The outside reflects the perfectly restored convent, but the inside is all new in a high end contemporary style. We were time constrained so arrived in Granada early one evening and left the next afternoon after a relaxed and thorough tour of the Alhambra. Staying right on the grounds took all of the stress out of this tight schedule. The... More

What can be better when in Granada to be staying right inside the Alhambra?! We started off our last Christmas holiday there very tired, but what a treat to open your window & shutters in the morning with a plunging view on the Generalife Gardens right at the heart of the Alhambra!! The hotel itself is rather understated and consistent... More

Our family recently spent two nights at the Parador. It was our second visit to Granada - the first time we had decided to stay at another highly rated hotel in the center of the city, primarily based on the fairly steep rates at the parador and its somewhat mixed reviews (I hate splurging for a mediocre experience). This trip... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a once in a lifetime trip to the Alhambra and Generalife. The Old Monastery San Francisco has been a Parador since 1942 and is on the grounds of the Alhambra, half the way up the mountain. Large modern rooms with vintage touches, beautiful historic courtyard, restored chapel and lush gardens surround the... More

We booked the parador because not only have we always had excellent experiences in the chain, but because it is inside the walls of the Alhambra and we thought it would make the overall visit more accessible for my disabled wife and her wheelchair, and it certainly did. We arrived at about 12.30 (midday). You need to show your booking... More
