“Good value in a pretty village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We were skiing in Sierra Nevada and stayed here for 3 days. Good value at around €45 for a double including breakfast which was a third of the price in resort. Make sure you do a pub crawl visiting the pub on the cave next door to the hotel and the craft shop next door. Also the pub in the baker and lastly the basement art gallery next to river.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This hotel is located in a quiet town in the sierra nevada moutain. This a very typical village with small streets and a mountain river is flowing just along the hotel. No too far from Granada to visit and have dinner and no too close to enjoy the mountain air.
Price is 30 euros per night with breakfast. Rooms are clean with a nice top view on the village, free good working wifi. Breakfast is a simple buffet but every day there is a special spanish breakfast dish included (simple also). Free parking just in front of the door.
I would really recommend if you want to relax. It is very close to the "touristic road" that join at some time the big road to go to ski station. This road has steep slopes and sometimes bad coating but the view on the valley is incredible.

After a trip with our family we stayed in this nice hotel. We came at 22.00hr and we were pleasantley welcomed. It is situated in the lovely town of Monachil and is near many hikingpaths. It is also near Granada and so you can make a mixed cultural and natural vacation.

We loved this hotel, though it was a bit difficult to find for us with GPS. Loved the free parking & breakfast (drinks, lunchmeats, bread, cereal, yogurt - really a feast compared to everywhere else in Europe!) The couple was helpful with showing us maps for things to do and we loved the nearby hike/run we took their advice on in town (waterfalls & stunning views)! When this took longer than expected, they let us check out a bit late. All was clean and we loved this gem in the mountains! Great launching point to Grenada & the Sierra Nevada National Park. Unfortunately we were so limited in time, we couldn't enjoy the lovely pool.

We stayed here as it was not too far to travel into Granada. The hotel was nice and clean and although no English was spoken they were very friendly and helpful. We managed to get wifi. Rooms basic traditional, no balcony, good size bathroom, air conditioning. Traditional breakfast, coffee or tea, juice, yogurt, tinned fruit, bread, cheese, ham, tomato/oil dressing. Service was with a smile. Good value. Pool not in use.
Monachil was quiet and very rural, beautiful walks and climbing is one of the big attractions.
We were very lucky, unexpectedly the locals had a bit of a "knees up" we experienced flamenco at its best. Dont know if that is what they do every Friday night or if it was a one off!

Must recommend the local Tourist Information Office, we could not have been given more information or advice, the service was excellent, don't think they get many English visitors!

This hotel was disappointing overall.
However based on it's price it was just about OK.
The hotel was clean and the reception staff were friendly.
Rooms were noisy, and staff were reluctant to sort out those responsible.
Breakfast was dreadful, very limited, and in the land where oranges grow on trees, even the OJ was grim.
The room was small and dark and cold.
I'd not visit here in the winter, Monachil shuts down and there is very little available. It's a good 15 mins into Granada.
Summer time would be better, they have tiny pool and some quite nice outside areas.

Monachil very quiet but ideal for Sierra Nevada. Rooms small but clean.

Had breakfast included and it was the worst I have ever seen.

There was toast, toast and more toast and very little else. An unappetising plate of salami and various jams. A small bowl of cornflakes but no dishes or milk available. You then had to ask for milk etc and wait along time until the only girl available dealt with everyone. She also served coffee and juice. Therefore this was limited. The hotel did not really care that they had such a poor breakfast on offer and no fruit, yoghurt or cheese for vegetarians were available when we enquired.

Due to this would not recommend hotel or return.
