Just come back from a long weekend staying in this hotel and seeing the sights of Granada.
The hotel itself is ideally located. Sat on the road up to the Alhambra, just next to Plaza Nueva with Carrera del Darro running through it, which is directly next to the Albaicin area and just around the corner from the cathedral. Whilst this is a lot of references just a quick glimpse at the Granada top 10 things to do will tell you they are almost all next to this hotel.
With the hotel the most noticeable thing is how helpful the staff are. Prior to our visit they contacted us with details of how to get there from the airport and also organised our tickets to the Alhambra (essential). Their English is very good, something I usually take for granted but you'll notice quick enough in Granada that this is not a general skill, and they are always happy to help with anything.
The hotel is also extremely good value. We had the Alhambra room with views of the cathedral and the Alhambra and paid around what I might expect from a city centre travelodge. The room itself was clean and reasonably spacious but be warned if you book this room, or any on the 4th floor, that the stairs leading up to it (lift only until 3rd floor) are quite tight and I wouldn't recommend for a pensioner.
My only criticism of the hotel would be the bedding in that it was blankets and sheets rather than a duvet. To me this seemed quite old fashioned and wasn't as comfortable but that is a personal preference. They also fell foul of one of my pet hates of the hotel industry in recent years, this insistence of tucking the blankets, sheets, duvet etc under the mattress. You need to remove them to be able to get into the bed and by doing so it is impossible not to remove the sheet over the mattress at the same time. This results in you having to remake the bed yourself, tucking the sheet around the mattress again. This seems a small thing but I don't pay for a hotel to make my own bed and find it extremely irritating.
All-in-all a good stay and i'd happily stay there again, the 4 out of 5 is to do with the bedding as there is nothing else to complain about.
