The Gran Suites 44 are perfectly located on Gran Via which is the main street of the city. If you are heading to Granada by air, take advantage of the airport shuttle transfer bus, it's green and blue and operated by j.gonzalez. The bus is timed for each flight arrival and there is no need to book, just pay the driver €3. The bus will drop passengers off at certain points, I think Gran Via stop is about the 3rd stop.
The hotel is about a 200m walk from the bus stop. The hotel entrance door was closed and remained as such which I think adds some exclusivity and I liked that. Upon arrival, I rung the buzzer and I was let in. After a quick check in, I was taken to my suite which I wasn't expecting. I was shown where the key slot was to activate main power and also how to use the ac.
The suite is exceptionally and beautifully appointed, modern, fresh and clean with a lovely small mural on the bedroom wall. There is a fridge, kettle, microwave and all that you would expect in any serviced apartment. There is free WiFi too, remember to get the code from reception when you check in. The hotel has a small atrium style area to relax in, on the ground floor with comfy chairs. There is a small lounge downstairs where you can make coffee, watch tv or surf the internet. The sofa is huge, room enough to lie down and have a nap on which I took advantage of. The hotel states that if you use the lounge, then to remove shoes which I think is fair. It definitely felt like being at home and cosy. My checkout was midday but I was taking a train at 5.30pm and the staff allowed me to still use the lounge to relax after I had checked out. On that note, it's worth mentioning that if you are planning to take a train from Granada, then the train station is about a 10 minute walk away from the hotel.
I booked Gran Suites following the excellent reviews and I can honestly say that I was amazed by the friendly staff and the quality of the suites. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to Granada.
