This hotel has a good location in the city centre and easy to find. Parking is across the road from the hotel. Clean and very basic but ok if you are not spending a lot of time in the room although we did find it a little noisy at night which could be attributed to wooded floors.

You get what you need: good heating or A/C, friendly and helpful staff, WIFI (slow, but without fuzz), garage opposite the street, fair price, and you are really well treated with your pet, which is rare in Granada. It's close to the university, the cathedral, and to the shopping areas. The rooms are not really cosy or stylish, but comfortable... More

This is a clean hotel, having small rooms, 24 hours reception and kind staff. The hotel is within 10 mn walking distance to the Plaza Isabel from where you can take the C3 mini bus to the Al Hambra. The hotel is also a good starting point for Tapas-Tours. We took breakfast at the top of the hotel. There are... More

We stayed here for 3 nights mid week. We asked for a quiet room but got one on the roadside at the front. It wasn't too bad with the metal shutter down at night and we had air con in the room so overall bearable. The room itself was clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. Ensuite bathroom with...

Excellent location in the center of Granada within a convenient walk to the bus to the Alhambra. Our family had two rooms (a double and a triple), which were simple but clean and comfortable with a fridge. Our triple room had the best shower, with the strongest water pressure, in our entire stay in Spain. Also, convenient garage for the... More

Although it seemed recently renovated, the only advantage of the hotel was it's location. The room was below average. It was dark, stifling, not pleasant to stay in. Fortunately we stayed there for only 2 nights.

This hotel is in a great location for a visit to Granada, right in the shopping area and very easy to find from motorway. We paid 4 Euros for taxi to Alhambra, which can't be missed. Lively area but no noise in room, comfortable bed and shutters on windows giving complete darkness for a great nights sleep. Staff very friendly... More

It's on a major shopping street, so no problem finding it. There did not seem to be a lot of English spoken at the front desk: at first they could not find my reservation and I had to pull out my laptop and show them a screenshot of the confirmation. Apart from that it was basically OK: room was clean,... More

Perfectly situated hotel with exceptionally helpful staff (we checked out but left our bags till later on that day) that has all the essentials well covered. Parking was a joy as the staff valet parked the car for us!
