“Felt like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

I picked this hostal because of the (very reasonable) price and the proximity to the Alhambra but it offered a lot more than I would have expected.

It is located in a calm area approximately 15 minutes from the city center (trust me, that's not a lot - you will enjoy walking in the streets of this lovely city) in a square which is full of restaurants (but still quiet). Just ask for a sangria and some selection of tapas.

The bus to the Alhambra stops 5 minutes away from the hostal.

By the way: it should be called hotel because some places which are called so cannot compete with this lovely hostal. The room and the bathroom were clean and just big and comfortable enough for a citytrip when you don't usually spend all the day inside.

The staff was very friendly, they remembered my name, had always something nice to tell or were curios about how my day was and gave me very useful tips. The whole atmosphere was great, I was very relaxed from the very first moment.

No doubt I will book this hostal in case I visit Granada again.

Top find in Granada! This hotel is run with Maria's German efficiency - spotless, everything works (from the air conditioning to the hot shower to the WiFi in the lobby). We had a lovely corner room on the top floor with nice view. Maria's local know-how enabled us to get same-day tickets to the Alhambra, despite huge crowds. Well-located, close to center of town. Great value. Highly recommended!

Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2011, hotel was very clean, breakfast was good value @ 5 Euros per person and only cost 50 Euro's per night for the room. Excellant location for Alhambra, only 15 minutes walk away (up hill), and reasonable restaurants and bars within 5 minutes.

We were very happy with our stay last week at the Hostal La Ninfa. Our room was clean and cheap. We were in a great location, and an easy (uphill) walk to La Alhambra.
The room was a little cold, as the hostal is much more reflective of what I would expect from Granada. If you need climate control, carpets and first class showers, this is not the place. But if you are happy with more than sufficient beds, bathrooms, service and location, stay here.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Beware widespread road works and road closures in Granada while they build or extend their metro system. Very bijou and rustic hotel. Certainly different from other modern hotels. Rooms very clean but very small. Local private car park 18 euros per day. Parking available on road although difficult to find during evening but cars have to be moved by 8am. Owner helpful. Very convenient for Alahambra but make sure to book tickets on line prior to visit and also town centre.

this hostal is in the Realejo neighborhood and is located across from the Campo del Principe, a tree-lined plaza next to numerous bars and restaurants. it's convenient to the entrance of the Alhambra, as it's near the base of the hill where you can take the stairs all the way up (about a 20 min uphill hike on cobblestones). Plaza Nueva & Cathedral are also a short walking distance away. the double room was a little cramped for 2 people, but it was very clean and cozy with pretty tiles. there's a note in the bathroom warning of a 30 min wait to replenish hot water if you use it up, but we never had problems. bed was comfortable, and the hostal was quiet at night. we didn't opt for their breakfast, as there were cafes, bakeries, and a grocery store nearby. the staff here was very friendly, kind and helpful. if your spanish skills aren't so great, Marlene also speaks fluent english (and german). she helped us purchase some bus tickets on a busy holiday weekend. we'd stay here again.
