This hotel is a nightmare, it's a shame one cannot give negative points on this site. It's completely incomprehensible to me how they reached such high rankings. It's a nightmare logistically, from entering central Granada to the moment we finally could enter our room, we spent 1,5 hours of juggling our luggage through Granada. The staff is unfriendly, the rooms... More

Location was excellent, an easy walk to the cathedral/town center and a pleasant 25 minute walk to the Alhambra. Our room was spacious with a tiny balcony and a view of the little bridge and waterway across the street from the hotel. The whole place seems a bit dark at first, but this is a pleasant relief from the relentless... More

During our ten days tour to Spain we stayed one night in Granada where we stayed at Shine Albayzin. As we were four of us, parents + 2 children we wanted a family room and we got an apartment which was perfect for us. It was clean, neat, 2 bed rooms, kitchen and a living room. The kitchen was fully... More

The hotel was really nice. It was clean and the receptionists were absolutely amazing. The only negatives were that our room was next to the road and it was noisy one night however that not the fault of the hotel rather the people. The shower room could have been a little bit cleaner. The room was like a mini apartment... More

We got a last minute deal for the 2 bedroom apartment for 70 euros a night. We didn't need a second bedroom but the price was competitive with single rooms. Very important to note the apartment is NOT in the main hotel. You have to walk another 5-10 minutes down the street, away from the city center, to get to... More

The Shine Albazyn is a boutique hotel housed in a fully refurbished property in one of Granada's historical quarters. The location is walking distance to the city centre. The suites face the Alhambra. Breaksfast is delicious and it is served until noon. What is remarkable about this hotel is the staff, in particular Inma, the manager. She organised a courier... More

We had a fantastic room with an incredible view of the Alhambra! The hotel is set off one of Granada's most famous thoroughfares. It has a historic feel with an impressive wooden courtyard. The lady who checked us in was very professional and informative. The room was well appointed with nice furniture with a brilliant shower and a comfortable bed.... More

The location was great but the place was not. We stayed in an apartment which turned out not to actually be in this hotel it was 22 houses down the street. Not what we saw in the pictures at all. The place was dirty and although some of the furniture was IKEA new everything else was old. The AC worked... More

Fabulous location in the heart of the old city, Albaycin. As another reviewer noted, you can take a taxi to the hotel's doorstep. But it has to be a quick exit as its on a very busy one way street. Very close to various attractions and the tourism office as well as restaurants, bars and eateries. Clean, spacious and modern... More
