We stayed at the Alhambra Palace for two nights in late November. Our goal was to visit the Alhambra itself and we chose this hotel for its proximity and because the Parador was not available. It was the perfect choice, as it turned out.
The hotel, though a century old, is in excellent condition both in the public areas and the rooms. It is built on a grand scale – like the Orient Express hotels of that era. We had a fabulous, spacious room that had two small balconies which had an excellent views of the city below and the snow-capped mountains to the east.
Most important, the service was impeccable – at the reception desk, the bar, the restaurant….attentive but not intrusive. We felt welcome and appreciated.
The hotel was able to arrange a small-group tour of the Alhambra at the last minute – we had not realized that advance booking was essential for a personalized or individual tour.
The room rate was very reasonable – especially when compared with some of our experiences at some other Spanish hotels. The only slight downside was the very expensive internet connectivity via Swisscom. All-in-all, we were extremely well satisfied.
I've read some of the negative comments in other reviews and the contrast with our experiecne was startling and difficult to understand. Also we paid $187 euros all in - booked ourselves over the internet.
