First of all the rooms are a dump, more on that later. The location is not as convenient as you are led to believe. As described below it is a major hassle, drive in, drop off stuff, lug through hotel, drive back to parking lot, walk 15 minutes to hotel, repeat to leave. Plus, no instructions beforehand, and it is not mentioned on their website of course. with this whole process it would be easier to just take a taxi from car park to any hotel in Grenada. I did not find that sleeping in the Alhambra was all that special, the best areas are not open at night unless you go for a day and night ticket (then, and only then would the location be ideal). In fact it was far more romantic to walk around the old islamic quarter where you get a marvelous view.
I did not give 1/5 solely based on parking. The room had one of the worst mattresses I've ever seen, bed is literally sagging in two places from springs that are totally shot. Bedding was very cheap, pillows terrible. I was afraid we would get bed bugs or something for sure. Room was tiny and poorly decorated. There were many bugs in the shower and sink. Toilet worked poorly. People were neither friendly or rude, but I don't doubt others claims given the total lack of interest in upkeep. The food looked terrible, we did not try it. The courtyard looks charming enough, but nothing can make up for the above issues. Finally the value is terrible. If you are obsessed with the idea of staying in the Alhambra, shell out for parador, this is NOT a good 2nd option imho
