No idea how this gets rated as a five star hotel. We stayed in multiple four star hotels across Spain that had much nicer rooms, interiors, bed, wifi, and service. I'm literally holding this iPad over my head to get a decent signal. Sorry but it's not that hard to setup a good wifi network these days. Hotels in stone... More

This hotel, located in the old historic part of Granada, is a beautiful and tasteful restoration of an old convent. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, however, perhaps coffee could be offered in the room along with the tea which is already provided. As a nice touch, chocolates are left on the pillow when the beds are turned down... More

Very much enjoyed our two-night stay in this hotel that used to be a monastery. It retains that old-world charm but has all the amenities and upgrades of a modern hotel. There is a steam room and sauna downstairs near the fitness room - very cool. And the breakfast spread is lovely. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly... More

Sounds silly but this conversion of an old convent into a luxury hotel is so well done that you have no hesitation in staying. The rooms for my part felt a little compact for a normal Marriott hotel and a little dark, but then you have the history and the location. The rooms were very quite with double glazed windows...

We had a lovely two night stay at this hotel, which was a good base for our visit to Granada. The location is very convenient and the transformation of this Convent building into a hotel has been very well done, preserving the best of the old heritage in the courtyard. This hotel has very good facilities as would be expected... More

We had a suite on the 5th floor which meant we had a small sitting area. The room looked out over a busy street which meant there was some road/pedestrian noise but certainly not enough to be an issue. The hotel is an older property that has been wonderfully maintained - the air conditioning works really well! That may not... More
