My finacé and I stayed at this B&B during a two-week trip to Spain. We had a great experience and I would highly recommend Solar Montes Claros.
The owner arranged for a car to meet us at the train station. We stayed in the Saba split-level unit on the top floor. It took some doing to haul our luggage up the stairs, but we are young and generally not bothered by that sort of thing.
The photos posted do not fully capture the spectacular view of the Alhambra from the spacious private balcony included with the unit. It is at least as good as any view available from the points in town referenced in most guidebooks. And it has the added element of privacy and comfort. We enjoyed sunset on our first night over a bottle of wine.
The room (and entire house) is very well appointed, uniquely designed and spacious. Anyone used to staying in upscale accommodations will feel very comfortable and enjoy the change of pace. An added bonus - we could see the Alhambra and the night sky from our bed.
The owner was helpful and friendly, but correctly sensed that we were not seeking long conversations or detailed guidance on what to do in town. There were other guests at the B&B during our stay, but we did not spend much time in the (serene) common spaces and had no difficulty finding privacy. Breakfast was timely and tasty.
We stayed for two nights - enough time to see the Alhambra and a few other sites in town. We had a great time. On departure, the owner arranged for a taxi to take us back to the train station.
I have difficulty imagining a better place to stay in Granada.
