Shine is based around an historic building overlooked by the Alhambra. It is a beautiful buidling, centred around a courtyard open to the stars, and based on an original moorish desgin that ensures that is cool. Location is excellent for sites, shops, centre of the city. Everything is very close in Granada anyway. The hotel doesn't provide food other than buffet breakfast which was entirely missable.
We stayed in suite 302 which was a duplex on the 4th floor easily accessible from the lift. Huge room. Great design. Enormous windows looking up to the walls of the Alhambra. Comfortable with good aircon. Minibar was a bit mini. Shower good. Bathroom could do with a blind over the window. A few bits needed maintenance but really high standard. Upper floor had bathroom, living area and bedroom. Lower part of the duplex, sofa bed, and another bathroom.
Expect to be woken by the bells in the morning from the nearby churches but enjoy the swifts as they chase around the roof tops.
Like others have commented it is soulless. No one said good bye, or thanked us for staying. But put that to one side, you are left alone, single member of staff always helped with info or advice.More
