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).

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

Ok, it's not the cheapest parador but the charming rooms, top service, fantastic breakfast and unique atmosphere make it worth a stay. We enjoyed very much staying here as we really enjoyed the city and the stunning Alhambra Palace.

We had originally booked a different hotel for our one night in Granada but on the recommendation of friends switched our reservation to the parador. It was expensive, but in my mind worth it. We arrived in a bit of a panic as our train from Madrid, scheduled for a 1:30 p.m. arrival, was delayed an hour, and our prebooked... More

We booked the Parador for a four night short stay and my expectations were tempered by some reviews posted previously. Such concerns were not realised. The staff very welcoming, helpful and friendly and the rooms very comfortable, very quiet and with beautiful views looking across from the Alhambra to Generalife. The breakfast buffet was comprehensive and other dining options also... More

I booked this for 2 nights paying about 350 euros per night for a double room, in the belief that this would give us some kind of advantage in being able to see more of the Alhambra for longer. It doesn't. Yes you are inside the complex and you have secure car parking, but access to almost everywhere outside the... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your comments. Many of our customers think that sleep at least once in life within a monument like the Alhambra in Granada, is a unique occasion. An advantage is also to arrive with your car inside the walls and use our small but convenient parking free of charge. Logically the monument visit areas have their... More

This lovely hotel is in the most amazing location. It is right in the Alhambra with wonderful views down to the city below from the gardens.
