My wife and I were in Granada for only 2 days, mainly to see the Alhambra, and so decided to stay at the only logical place, the Hotel Alhambra Palace. Our room was large and very comfortable with a great view. We had lunch and cocktails at the terrace bar which was delightful. The staff was helpful and courteous but very business-like and not overly friendly. We were there just before the peak tourist season and so did not suffer any of the issues mentioned by other reviewers. If you are thinking of staying at the hotel you should know that it is a non-trivial walk down hill, and consequently uphill going back to the hotel, to get into the heart of Granada. However, there are always taxis and a bus that comes by very regularly. The views from the hotel are spectacular and access to the Alhambra is a very modest walk up hill to the main entrance.
It is rated as a 4 star hotel but it has a few 'thread bear' spots; for example the carpet on the stairs and in some of the hallways. We were also disappointed with the maid service which was adequate but not up to 4 star quality. The air conditioning was hard to control and we found that it was always too hot or too cold in our room.
The good points of the hotel are the easy access to the Alhambra, the views of the city both day and night, an ATM in the lobby, a more quiet and refined atmosphere than most tourist hotels, free in-room wifi with good performance (>56kb), and an efficient English speaking staff. I would strongly recommend the Hotel Alhambra Palace if you are fit and unafraid of walking up and down a substantial hill to get to the city.
