meeting place in Plaza Neuva

Hi all

I will be parking at the underground parking at Severa Ochera for a night.

The next day we will be going to the Alhambra in the afternoon and then meeting our son and partner who will have arrived in Granada by bus from Malaga that afternoon.

Can someone give advice for them on the best way to get into town from the bus station now that the routes etc have changed please,

Also, can you suggest a good and obvious meeting place- bar, cafe in Plaza Neuva where we can meet up. They will have luggage with them so it needs to be somewhere where there will be room for luggage to be beside them, also we or they may be delayed so needs to be comfortable where they could get something to eat maybe whilst waiting. I thought of Plaza Neuva because it is near our hotel from which we will be picking up our bags after the Alhambra and before meeting them. Also we will probably get taxis back to the parking at Severa Ocheo and that seems a good place for taxis.

Any good ideas please?

Thanks Viola.

Meet at the fountain.

Or at a bar.

The cafeteria Lisboa don't like people sitting with suitcases.

(due to the mala follar Granadaina)

Go to the next one after Cafeteria Lisboa called Teteria Generalife.

The cafeteria Lisboa is the one opposite the kiosko.

By the way.

Most bars on Plaza Nueva itself are franchises and are best avoided.

They are just for tourists.

Some of them don't even give free tapas.

(it is against the policy of the head offices in Madrid)

Thanks very much

I just needed to find somewhere easy as they have never been to Granada before and I don't want them to be dragging cases around more than necessary.

I was in Plaza Nueva last night after having posted my reply.

I was pleased to realise that.

The advice I gave was good.

Also there are benches in Plaza Nueva where they could sit.

If they get a taxi then they would have to drag suitcases a max 60 metres.

If they get a bus from the bus station to Plaza Neuva - which ones will they need to get now that they have changed the routes?

Thanks

Hi again

I assume that Teteria Generalife is a tea room ? Is there a bar where they could get a beer that would be ok with luggage?

There is a very imposing building on Plaza Nueva. I think it is the courthouse. You could meet your son just outside the building at the nearest cafeteria.
