Fabulous location right in the heart of Granada. I thought this may pose a problem with noise. When you leave the hotel you walk through their grand archway doors and you are hit with the hustle and bustle of beautiful Granada! You are within walking distance of everything and you can enjoy roaming the streets,restaurants, shops street venders and art!...
