“Good place to stay in the center of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We stayed here two nights and enjoyed it. The taxi driver knew exactly where it was and even though he did not speak English and we can't speak Spanish, he managed to explain where we should walk to get to the hotel - since the hotel is in a pedestrian area, taxis can't drive you right up to the front door.

Our room was white. That pretty much explains it. (See photo.) There wasn't that much street noise since you are far from traffic.

The bathroom is tiny and there was a problem with leaking water but the hostess was very friendly and the breakfasts were good (although they really need to invest in a better coffee maker - it's too small for all of the guests and you nearly always had to wait for a cup to be brewed). The water pressure was adequate. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room. The bed was comfortable.

What makes this place special is the location - very convenient to the sites of wonderful Granada. And for the price, it's a very good deal for what you get.

Dear Sea-lon sf, first of all, I would like to thank you for choosing us for your visit to Granada.

I would like to let you know that we have bought another coffee machine for the other guests-room, so that guests do not have to wait.

We decided not to have tea/coffee service in the rooms, because we thought it would be nice if guests come to the common area to have a coffee or tea so that guests could get to know others guests and make this area as a entertaiment room.

Thanks a lot again for your review! Have a nice day! Belén Teba

Anyone who is looking to visit granada can blindly book this hostal. It scores on location, service and price! The hosts are extremely warm and friendly. Was a pleasure to stay there. The location is unbelievable. Right in the heart of the shopping district of granada and 20 min from the alahambra. Loved it!!!

Nice hostess that was very helpful in giving us directions to some great sights. Room was small but clean. Small bathroom with shower. No problems. Ac worked well as did the wifi.
Granada was a great place to visit. Definitely recommend this place. Breakfast was simple but very good.

Only struggle we had was initially finding the hostel as we were driving. Our gps could not tell but this place is on a pedestrian mall. We laughed when we figured it but it was frustrating at the time. Call ahead regarding parking to make sure you get a discount.

Dear KarenXYZ, first of all, I would like to thank you for choosing us for your visit to Granada.

If we have known that you were coming by car, we could have sent you by email, a file where you could have seen a location map, so that it is easier to find the Hostal and the Parking.

Next time let us know and we will help you.

Thanks a lot for the nice review you wrote about us!

We will keep on doing our best to make your staying at us a nice experience!

I stayed at Hostal Mesones for 3 nights. Great atmosphere and breakfast included. The staff was welcoming and helpful for many questions and attractions. Even better just around the corner from the cathedral and close to many shops and cafes.

I loved this hostel! Though I would call it more of a hotel... I have read travel reports about how Granada is the "most unfriendly city in the world" ... I say [--]! That distinction should go to New York in my opinion. Marta the hostess was so sweet and kind! She really goes above and beyond to make sure all of her guests are happy and their needs are met. The hotel itself is clean, comfy, and has AC that really works! The location also can't be beat, right in the town center, easy walk to the Alhambra and everywhere else. I give two thumbs up to Hostel Mesones and would definitely recommend staying there when in Granada!

Stayed for a night for our visit to Alhambra. Very close to the cathedral and if you like shopping, this is perfect. Be forewarned though that most shops are closed on Sunday. Room is a bit small but clean and comfy. Our room comes with its own private bathroom but it is outside the room to which we are given keys. The hostess was a nice lady and helpful with our enquiries. Love the breakfast provided, simple but very nice. About 13mins walk to the bus shuttle stop that will take you to Alhambra. Surrounding area is safe even in late evening.

Stayed here for a few nights, and it was lovely. The owners are some of the most pleasant and helpful I've encountered. It's on a nice street, feeling safe not an issue at all. The room was of course quite small but very clean and homey, everything in the bathroom worked well, and though we had a window out to the street, the noise was not bothersome.
Location is awesome. It didn't take us more than 20 minutes to walk to anything we wanted to see, and the bus up to the Alhambra is very close by if you need it.

Great place to stay in a great city.

(P.S. the coffee in the morning was very good, too)
