Reviewed May 29, 2014

Booked for 1 night to visit the Alhambra (via secret escapes). We really liked that it was on a fairly quiet street close to a waterway with a large walkway towards the centre of town. It was next to a church and we got stuck behind a coach dropping off tourists. For a city hotel we thought it was good. We had B&B 2 tapas each and drink fre and 10% off all services. We got the free drink but charged for our 1 tapas each (did mention it on checking out but never got resolved and could not be bothered explainingagain) The tapas was excellent even though one of them was not what we had ordered! Room was good but no view but large bed v comfy good storage and bathroom and cheap mini bar. We had planned to eat out in Granada on the evening but were shattered from walking round the alhambra and had a top notch meal in the restaurant 3 course 18 euros also pushed the boat out and had a bottle of cava at a massive 10 euros! Breakfast was great and something to please everyone. Car parking was too expensive and if we could have been bothered we probably could have found it somewhere much cheaper! We popped into the church next door and it was stunning and not on trip adviser (or i could not find it) so would highly rec having a good look round here too.

This hotel has a lovely atmosphere to it with a beautiful courtyard where meals are served, and the food was very good.
The rooms are on the small side and you need to take time to learn how to operate the shower if you don't have a degree in mechanics! A make up mirror in the bathroom would not go amiss according to her indoors and I'm sure she is right!
Our room was 115 which overlooked the street, however some on our tour complained about the noise from the hotel downstairs so may pay to remember this when selecting a room.

Would highly recommend this charming hotel. Set in an ideal location in this beautiful town, we would have loved to have stayed longer in this area. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast more than adequate. It was not far from the main attraction of the area, the Alhambra. Visiting this sight was an amazing experience, so much history and so well maintained. Granada was one of our favourite places so far in our 11 days in Spain so far.

If you're going on a sightseeing trip to Granada then this hotel is ideal, being situated within walking distance of all the main attractions. A huge plus point is that it has it's own secure underground parking (and the staff will park your car for you and bring it round when you want it). I couldn't fault the hotel itself - extremely comfortable, everything worked as it should, it was obviously well maintained (no paint flaking off the walls!) and the staff were genuinely friendly and eager to help, without being over the top.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not overlooking the busy main street in case of traffic noise

First of all the price for this hotel is low for the quality they offer. It is a very nice hotel that offers free wifi although it is not fast at least it is free and a nice entrance. The staff is very helpfull and friendly. The hotel is situated in the center near to El Corte Ingles and near to the city diner options. Alhambra and Cathedral are nearby, the rooms clean and have all options available for this price. The bathroom specially the douche is working very nice, lots of water and no temperature changes.
So no complaints and would recommend this hotel for a trip to Granada.
The only recommendation for the hotel: instruct your staff not to leave half empty shampu samples.

Probably the best all round hotel in Granada; location just right being close to town, near the river and park, in a restricted traffic zone and a few minutes by taxi to the Alhambra or just 2 minutes to the bus stop. Rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. The bar is crisp exceptionally priced for a 4 stat hotel and each drink comes with a choice of the most exquisite tapas.

Breakfast exceptional value too

The staff are attentive and helpful. I would stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Rates vary on a day by ay basis so a call to the hotel will enable you to plan a stay more cost effe...

At the time of writing this my wife and I are still at the Vincci Albayzin. We travelled in from Sevilla on a Thursday afternoon only intending on spending 2 nights in Granada, by the time we checkout the following Monday we would have spent 4 fantastic nights at this hotel.

Lovely staff, superb service, well maintained establishment, superb location and more than adequate breakfast (omelette lady rocked!).

Will be back to Granada, but will only ever stay at the Vincci.

Continue the great service!
