We took a bus from Madrid to Granada and stayed for 2 days/1 night. I would have enjoyed staying another night, but our itinerary was packed. Anyway, the hotel is a 15 minute or so bus ride from the the bus terminal, and it only costs 1 Euro 20 (I think) for bus fare, so it's more economical than a taxi. Taking the bus to the Cathedral stop puts you three blocks away from the hotel. Very convenient. There is also an Aeroporte bus that swings by for 3 Euro which will take you to/from the airport. The front desk staff can assist you if necessary.
The hotel itself was deceptively charming. The room we had was small, but it was nice having an actual double bed (as opposed to two twins pushed together). I would HIGHLY suggest paying the extra 5 Euros, or whatever the cost, to get a room with a view of the Alhambra. We had an excellent room on the 4th floor with a balcony, overlooking the plaza or square below, with Alhambra off to the left. At night, we were able to open our balcony doors and enjoy the view and wonderful temperatures. We stayed on a Tuesday night, and most of the outside noise from cafes seemed to be gone by 11:30pm or so. Also, the balcony doors seal really well and keep out noise.
The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, and was patient enough to help me correct my Spanish when necessary. They will also hold your bags if you have time to explore more of Granada after you check out.
Overall, this was a great smaller-sized hotel, and was a nice romantic stop on our tour of Spain.
