“right across from the Alhambra and very reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

The hotel is right across the street from the Alhambra and if you are driving, arrival and parking are made easier by the fact that you are not in the city center. The hotel rooms are fairly basic but there are nice jacuzzi bathtubs and balconies. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the city center but there are public minibuses the drop you in the city center for 1.2 euro. Price was very reasonable.

1. The Guadalupe staff was incredibly rude and hostile. They essentially bullied us into staying an extra night at their overpriced crappy hotel. Here´s how: when we checked in, the obnoxious clerk pushed my wife very hard to stay two nights. My wife was clear that we could only stay one night. Then when we called at noon to say we could not get back from the Alhambra in time to check out by noon, and that we had to check out late, no one answered the phone. Then when we called back in the afternoon, they told my wife we had already been billed for the second night. We were forced to change our travel plans and stay there again because we´d already been charged.

2. We had a windowless room with only an opening to an air shaft.
3. We were awakened by construction at 7 am both days.

The hotel is in the perfect location if you are going to visit The Alhambra as the entrance is a few minutes walk from the hotel. You can park in the Alhambra car park which is opposite the hotel. The bedrooms at the front of the hotel look out over the car park which doesn't sound very nice but it's screened by trees and means that the hotel is very quiet in the evenings and overnight.
Our room wasn't very big but it was big enough for our needs and was nice and clean. The bed linen was really soft and the bed was comfortable. (Actually - beds - the double was two singles pushed together.)
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We had breakfast in the hotel on our second morning but wouldn't really recommend it as none of the buffet was stuff you'd go back for second helpings of!
It takes about 15 minutes to stroll down into Granada. We didn't try to walk back up again. The bus fare is 1.2euros and the buses are frequent so we didn't attempt the hill climb.
I think The Guadalupe represented very good value for money. You don't get all the luxuries of a parador but neither do you pay the same kind of rate. If you want somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep after a long day's sightseeing, and you don't want to spend too much, book this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

When looking for a hotel in Granada I was overwhelmed with the choice available. With a smaller budget, I was concerned it might be a bit of a dive as it was 45 euros for a night in August. However, the room was lovely, the bathroom luxurious and the service great - low key as I like it. Best things - the entrance to the Alhambra is a 2 minute walk away so you can get in early. We got there at 9am, already busy and only 200 tickets left for the rest of the day. Also the bar and restaurant were good and we thought the room and bathroom were just great. If I were to return to Granada I would stay here again. Down points - no outside area which is a shame in the heat of the summer and a fair walk to the city centre although there are regular buses. Lots of cheap places to eat (9 euros for 3 courses at lunch time) but all are closed in the later evening. I would look no further for a short , cheap city break to visit the Alhambra than this hotel. Lovely.

A very nice Hotel, the rooms are tidy, air conditioning is good. The busses go every 10 mins in the city. Only problem: Breakfast is too expensive, it is better to eat in the city!

Upgraded and received a room with a balcony overlooking the Alhambra - what a beautiful sight at night. Booked here primarily because we had a car and am so glad we stayed here as I can't imagine navigating the streets in town. It was quite peaceful and the mini bus a short walk down made it convenient to visit Granada. Also a few steps to the Alhambra. We ate dinner here the first night because we were so tired from driving most of the day, and I'd recommend you go elsewhere. Breakfast buffet was meh. 2nd morning walked up the street to a cafe and had pan and cafe con leche, much better and cheaper! Hotel room was quite nice, front desk staff extremely helpful. WiFi in lobby only.
