Situated a short walk away from the entrance to the Alhambra, the Hotel Alixares is most certainly the best located hotel in Granada for the tourist. There are buses every five or ten minutes into the city centre, but if you are in a party of four then taxis are more cost effective.
I have never stayed in a hotel with such a busy reception area, as there was a constant arrival and departure of coachloads of (mostly far eastern) tourists. Reception always seemed to be in need of one or two more staff! Having said that, those staff that were on duty were always polite and courteous – even when dealing with multitudes of people!!
Special commendation must go to the barman, who was always smiling, and who always went out of his way to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction.
The hotel itself is showing signs of its age - the bar area, rooms and corridors are looking tired and shabby and although they were spotlessly clean, they do need to be re-fitted and decorated
Breakfast was fabulous with hot and cold options available on a serve yourself buffet.
Would we go back … Yes, please!!
