“excellent place in center Granada”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Hotel is very very clean and smells good. Location is excellent - 5 minutes walk from cathedral where you can get bus to Alhambra and 2 minutes to Plaza Nuevo where you can take bus to Albaycin. Staff are helpful and friendly. Room is full of light and if you keep window close , there's almost no noise from the street. It's a nice place to stay in Granada if you'd like to do sightseeing. The price of this hotel is very reasonable. Anyway, highly recommend.

The hotel had opened shortly before our stay in June 2011. The room was crisp, clean and well equipped. Air conditioning worked well. Location was excellent, plenty of eating and drinking options across the street in Plaza Nueva and the main tourist attraction in town (Cathedral) a few minutes walk. The bus stop for the airport is also a very short walk, as are the stops for the Alhambra bus. Alternatively, take a taxi from the plentiful rank across the street.

The only downsides were that the breakfast room was still not open (this may have changed now) and the wifi is only strong in the lobby, not all the rooms.

Room Tip: High floor to avoid street noise

We checked into Hotel Monjas for 3 nights after walking out on a paid reservation which was unacceptable. The front desk clerks were wonderfully helpful, room was modern and very clean, great beds, and it's just steps off Plaza Nueva. Free wifi and also computer in the lobby. No breakfast, but good places are just around the corner (Manueles was especially fun). The hotel has no particular Spanish feel, but after being out and about in Granada all day and evening, we were just as happy to retire to a modern room!

Was really pleased with the stay here. The location was perfect, just off Plaza Nueva but still quiet enough ton get a good nights sleep. The rooms were newly refurbished & it was very comfortable and stylish. The rooms were very clean with huge bathrooms (a real plus!). It was also great value and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, organizing tickets for the Alhambra & giving advice on transport options. There was no restaurant but lots of cafes closeby. Overall I was really pleased and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - the friendly staff really made it stand out.

We stayed for 2 nights. Everything was perfect. You can find breakfast place just over the street.
Only the basement garage is a challenge for larger cars.

Tucked away just below the road leading to the Alhambra you will find this ideal hotel. Recently refurbished, the hotel is spotless, modern and comfortable. Although there were no eating facilities at the hotel, there were plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants over the road serving breakfast through to evening meals and tapas. (I think there may be plans to add a restaurant and rooftop terrace). Clean white linen on the beds, a modern bathroom with an excellent shower all added to make our stay enjoyable. This is a 'no-frills' establishment but thoroughly recommended for the ideal location (in walking distance of all the attractions), and the clean and modern environment.
