We were very excited at the prospect of staying at this hotel, however on arrival we realised we were in a small dark room at the back. All three nights we were kept awake by people in the room above, rowing, talking all night and packing at 3am in the morning. The lack of sleep was not good and I... More

Behind the old wooden door is a modern 15-room hotel based on the Moorish concept of atrium and central water fixture..rooms are off of galleries overlooking the central courtyard. The rooms are named, not numbered. Very well-located on the edge of the Albaicyn with uphill views of the Alhambra and just a few yards away from the lively Plaza Nueva.... More

El Ladron was perfectly okay, but overpriced for what you get, I think: An okay room and bathroom with "hotel hangers" (the anti-theft kind, a little insulting at this price), indifferent front desk service by and large (one of the several we encountered was more friendly), and no breakfast included. The sherry reception is a nice touch, and the library... More

A great place to stay in Granada. A good position close to centre and with easy access to the Alhambra. Comfortable room with nice view of Alhambra. Friendly and helpful staff. Free sherry in the evening from 7 to 9. Good breakfast.

An excellent choice in Granada, with a very central location, close to restaurants, 2 minutes walk to a taxi stand and river Darro in front of the door. Our room was spacious and well appointed, and shower was amazing. Breakfast was pricey with a few selections but what was on offer was of good quality. The only small negative comment... More

We are so pleased you found everything about the hotel to your liking. Your comment about the WIFI in the Suite is much appreciated and we have had a technician look into it this morning. It seems like the Router on this floor had to be restarted. Thank you for letting us know and come visit us again! More
