This is a great hotel, located in a very picturesque and gorgeous part of Granada. I traveled here with my wife, three children, (aged 10 - 14) and our friends, another couple with two children (aged 12 - 14).
The lobby is small, but other common areas make up for it, notably the breakfast area in the courtyard and the rooftop terrace with a great view of the Alhambra (see the pic I took from the roof). The rooms are fantastic, very clean and very well-appointed. I travel a lot for work, typically staying in Marriott's, JW Marriott's, Intercontinentals, Hiltton's, etc., and I would not have traded any of those for this great boutique hotel. My room had a balcony opening to the sail-cloth covered street below. Our bed was large and comfortable, and it was as quiet as you could expect from a hotel in a building with so much history and such a great location.
The staff was great, and there was a wonderful woman with an Irish accent making it easy for our group as we all struggle with our Spanish.
I will warn you that finding this place is not easy. This was the only hotel in Spain where my GPS really let me down (Garmin... but my friend's I-phone with Google Maps was equally challenged). Before you go, I'd recommend reaching out to the hotel and nailing down how to drive to the parking lot, which was much easier to find than the hotel itself... which is on a pedestrian street and allows no cars. I might even go so far as to suggest you do a Google street view and simulate driving along the streets close to the parking area. It's not the hotel, it's the old (beautiful) part of the city that represents the directional difficulty.
We took a bus to the Alhambra from the hotel, but others walked, and said it was pretty easy. Either way, it is close and convenient. Same goes for good restaurants with outdoor seating, great ice cream, and plenty of shopping.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is not only a great value, it is a great hotel.
