How much for the experience of a group of school girls walking down the street singing a heartfelt round of "Viva Espania", or youths serenading on their guitars down the street? We sat on our first floor window, behind wrought iron balustrade and watched the daily procession. Across the road was a classic view of Spanish apartments lined on a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write an extensive review. Entrance to the Old Town can be challenging to navigate by car, we tried to make it easier by providing local maps and directions on our website. Would love to welcome you back to Granada and our hotel on your next trip! More

The location was perfect about a minute walk from Plaza Nueva along one of the prettiest streets you will ever see, the Carrera del Darro, which has the river in one side with the Alhambra always in your site. Even better was the staff, in particuar Marisa. We brought an electric scooter into the building so were a bit of... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March and I cannot fault the hotel in any way. The superb location is walking distance to the Alhambra (viewable from our room) and many other attractions aswell as many restaurants and bars making it perfect for a short stay. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. The reception staff... More

We stayed for two nights in the El Sueno de Isabel room at the end of March and had a truly fantastic stay. The location of the hotel is unbeatable, just off of Placa Nueva and offering incredible views of the Alhambra. The design of the hotel is magnificant, with a stunning courtyard in the centre that was housing an... More

We loved this small hotel. It is located in a great spot---walk to everything you want to see in Granada AND quiet at night! It is modern and tranquil inside and located in an historic building. The women at the front desk arranged a visit to the Hamman (Arab baths) which is less than one block away and a visit... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel El Ladron de Agua in late March, for two nights, in their Manuel de Falla room (a superior room). The stay was great - the hotel is beautiful, the room had a view of the Darro River (and very comfy sheets and pillows), the property is clean and well-maintained, the staff was really... More

We spent 2 nights in mid February. The staff was excellent, arranged our Alhambra tour and provided a lot of information. Breakfast was nice, but nothing hot. Hotel is well located just off the Plaza Nueva and close to many sites. Our room was nice, bed was 2 twins together more or less, so a bit short but very comfortable.... More
