I am so glad we chose to stay here, it was truly a luxurious hotel with beautiful architecture and design-reminded me of Indian palaces in Jaipur. The staff were very friendly and helped with local suggestions. They also gave us walking directions to the city. It is also just a short walk from the palace. There was a national labor strike on one of the days that we were there and we felt very safe and had a chance to enjoy the hotel. The rooms were spacious with a nice view of the city. They could upgrade the carpet as they seemed a bit old. No coffee maker in the room, but the bar and restaurant staff were very nice and was always a pleasure to go down for a cup of coffee or drinks. They even made yummy vegetarian sandwiches for us, late one night. The breakfast spread was extensive and really yummy. Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend Alhambra Palace hotel.
