We stayed at Carmen de la Alcubilla del Caracol for 3 nights in October to allow easy access to both The Alhambra & Granada town centre. We flew into Malaga and due to time constraints took a Taxi to the hotel: 170 Euros. Granada Airport is much closer, however there were no flights that suited us. The Taxi driver eventually... More

Host is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Manual is ready to give you specific info about where to go and how to get around. He's seen more than a few tourists and will make sure you avoid problems! The location was perfect with an easy walk to the Alhambra, yet it was a quiet refuge from the crowds. We were able... More

I stayed three nights at this cute little B&B. The public areas of the hotel are extraordinarily pretty, decorated with flawless taste and gifted with huge windows overlooking Granada. I stayed in the Palmera room, which was a comfortable size for one person; it overlooked the breakfast terrace, so I was a little concerned I'd be woken by noise from... More

After just having returned from a five day stay here in Granada, it us difficult to be certain that ones opinions are entirely balanced but here goes. When you book, and you're coming by car, you receive a detailed email giving directions to the hotel. Follow these to the letter and it's easy but be warned, Granada is a rabbit... More

We stayed three nights and had the "La Glicinia" room which had a beautiful terrace. It is a very short walk to the Alhambra and easy to walk to the city centre even though a bit of a climb back but that is why we had such terrific views of Granada. There is bus transport nearby. Manuel was a wonderful... More

We spent two nights in Granada and like most tourists, we had only Alhambra on our schedule. Thanks to the owner Manuel's guidance, we discovered that the town has so much more to offer. Manuel manages the hotel with excellence: clean, nice, very well situated close to Alhambra and a view that goes beyond anything. Most warm recommendations!

I couldn't recommend this hotel and its staff high enough. Beautifully positioned with a breakfast bar that overlooks the city and yet it is only a ten minute stroll to the Alhambra! Book early as it is very popular. Manuel, the proprietor looks after every possible inquiry with a skilled hand.

We had visited this hotel before and again found it a perfect place to stay. The location, just below the Alhambra, means that it is well positioned for visiting the sights of Granada and there are fantastic views over the city. However, some people may find access difficult and it is quite a slog walking uphill from the city though... More

Carmen has beutiful views and close to Alhambra. Owner takes time to help you plan your visit to Granada. Please use taxi arranged by owner because private taxis are not allowed to enterance of carmen and it is difficult to carry bags uphill.
