The Macia Condor Granada is centrally located in this charming, historic Andalusian city and offers its guests a large, clean, comfortable room. It provides free wi-fi with a good signal, an in-room safe, adequate closet space including three drawers in the closet, and a flat-screen TV.
The bathroom amenities include a shower cap, shampoo, hair dryer, and shoe buffer, but no facial tissue dispenser -- still a slightly better offering than we encountered in most budget hotels that we stayed in during a 10-day group tour of Spain. The food at the Macia Condor was fine -- we enjoyed a good three-course dinner with live music one night, and an OK buffet breakfast the next morning.
There were some minor annoyances, emphasis on minor. First, the lifts / elevators apparently suffered from deferred maintenance, as the buttons for various floors did not always work the first time, so your floor might be bypassed several times before you finally made it to your stop. Some passengers would just get off wherever they could if their floor was skipped on the first pass, and would use the stairway to get to their floors -- not necessarily a good option when you are toting a lot of luggage or packages.
Second, noise from adjoining rooms was a bit of a problem in the hotel rooms, which are not exactly soundproof. To avoid disturbing your neighbors, it’s a good idea to keep the TV volume low and not speak too loudly.
Finally, and more trivially, instead of a small electronic card for room entry, the hotel requires its guests to haul around a large, bulky metal key for room entry. And that package is made even bulkier by the attached card that must be inserted into a slot by the door to if you want to turn on the lights or TV and otherwise use electricity. Most hotels that require electric power activation in the room just use the same small card that unlocks the door. But not the Macia Condor, whose key and power-activation card are attached like Siamese twins. Toting the bulky key and card combination does convey a bit of old-world charm, if you don’t mind it filling your pockets or purse.
That said, the Macia Condor was still the best hotel our tour group stayed at during our budget tour of Spain, in terms of both comfort and location.
