Our first experience with a parador in Spain was very good. This parador used to be a monastery and was so comfortable and of course convenient to the Alhambra, which was the main reason for being there. The room we had was not fancy but very clean and functional. We had two twin beds pushed together to make a king... More

Being in the Alhambra by itself is already a great experience but sleeping there overlooking the gardens is amazing. The hotel sits in an old monastery, completely renovated on the inside but preserved on the outside making it really beautiful. The bedrooms and facilities are what you usually expect of a Parador and the wifi connection is also good if... More

We visited this hotel as a group of friends during the wonderful dance festival. It is unique location as it is right within the Alhambra itself. It is very peaceful and beautiful within a world heritage site and as such is an outstanding location. Every part the the Alhambra can be reached on foot from here and through lovely gardens....

Beautiful property right on the Alhambra grounds, but flawed as a hotel. The only Parador we stayed in while touring Spain, and while claimed as one of the best, if this is all there is, I will pass on the others. Hotel was understaffed. Check-in took 15 minutes. Staff seemed like government employees punching a clock, not service staff offering... More

Not the best Parador I have stayed in but excellent food and very fast and efficient service. I stayed in Room 110 which was acceptable but a little tired. The light switches were annoyingly complicated. This Parador is perfect for visiting The Alhambra complex of palaces. The Parador is a converted monastery and parts of the building are outstandingly beautiful.... More

Thank you for writing your comment. For us, it is very satisfying to have happy customers. Let me explain something about the electrical switches in the room. The hotel has been totally renovated less than five years ago and more modern lighting, security and climate control systems have been installed. From header switches all lights in the room, including the... More

Ok quality and good location (if you want to only eat there) but very over priced. Clean with ok service but not great considering what they charge. Minimal amities. Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville puts the Parador to shame. Would spend your money some other place.

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

An excellent example of the Spanish government Parador group. A first class blend of history and hospitality. It is on the site of the Alhambra so if you are visiting this celebrated historic complex it is certainly the place to stay. It is rated four star, which I think spot on however the rooms are furnished to a very high,... More

I have wanted to stay in this Parador for a LONG time! Therefore, it was obvious to choose it as the first destination on our 5 wk trip of Spain & Morocco & where I'd be celebrating my 50th birthday! Our room was pleasant, comfortable, quiet & spacious enough for us. It looked out on the General Life gardens which... More

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
