“Perfect budget B&B/pension”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The B&B/pension is located a few hundred metres from the cathedral and the lively Bib Ramblas square. For the location and the overall quality it was very good value.

I had a single room with shared bathroom. Both were a good size and clean.

The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. English, French and German spoken (as well as Spanish, of course).

The room, shared bathroom and breakfast room were all spotlessly clean. Aircon and TV. Breakfast was fine - juice, coffee/tea, a couple of slices of bread (your choice of jam or the Spanish tomato/olive oil mix) and some sweet cakes/biscuits.

The hotel is on the corner of a block - opposite one side of the hotel there is a large bar. There was quite a bit of street noise, which might disturb you if you wanted to sleep before midnight (but why would you want to do that in a Spanish city?!) A room overlooking Calle Mesones would be quiet.

I spent two days in Hostal Mesones because of a conference at the University of Granada. The single room was clean and it had a washbasin and air conditioner. I took a room with shared bathroom and it was clean all the time I used it. The owners have recently changed and the new ones are very gentle and provide you with useful information. They speak fluent Spanish, English and French (maybe other languages as well). They have introduced a breakfast of orange juice, coffee and toasts with jam, all included in the price.

During the night the streets are loud but it is solved closing the windows.

If I come back to Granada I will go to Hostal Mesones again.

We stayed here for one night during a whirlwind tour of Spain. Ideal location 2 blocks from cathedral near tapas bars and shops, but without street noise at night. Paid 40 euro for a nice clean double room with bathroom. Shower was normal sized single (as opposed to some insanely cramped showers we have seen) and had PLENTY of hot water and water pressure. Room was small but comfy. Wifi was free. had heat and a/c although we couldn't quite figure out the controls. Plenty of covers on the bed. I would absolutely come back here.

Room Tip: We had room 202, which was actually on what Americans would consider the 4th floor.

I spent a couple of nights here to look for accommodation during my stay abroad. The family who owns the hostel was very polite and friendly and even helped my to organize an apartment during my first days in Granada.

By the way, my room was nice and clean as well. Really nothing to complain about!

Enjoy your stay

fantastic location but i think we were swindled into paying an extra 5 euros for a private bathroom...when it seemed like all rooms had private bathrooms anyway
wifi was advertised but it wasnt working for the 3 days we were there
walls are also pretty thin and there is no breakfast included

the only good things were the location and price

The hostal is situated in the heart of the town centre close to the cathedral on a shopping street.

The entrance and reception are quite inviting.

I fixed the reservation in the hostel on the morning of arrival. I paid 21 Euro and got the last available room for a friday night stay. Rooms might be booked out easily on weekends.

The room I had was small with bed, wardrobe, sink, TV and air conditioner(!). Bathroom was shared. All in good, clean state. Window was to the inner patio of the house, but who cares.

The landlady and her husband (speaks German) are nice and friendly.

A good recommendation I got from a city guide of Granada. Central place for little money, just right for a place to stay overnight.

This hostal is fantastic value. It's 20 Euro per night, regardless of how many people share a room. The place is very clean and for your 20 E you can get an individual room. The location is also fantastic, it's in the stylish centre of the town. German and SPanish spoken.
