Hotel Juan Miguel

Reviewed May 31, 2011

The location of this hotel is fantastic. It is a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral, and say 10 to the bus to Alhambra. It is right in town and close to lots of great shops and tapas bars. The room we had was fantastic, really big, with a massive king sized bed (not just two singles pushed together as you sometimes find, but a proper King). Didn't watch TV much, I think it had the BBC. Staff were also really helpful.

I honestly don't have any bad things to say about this hotel, it was the best one that we stayed at in our trip of southern spain, and great value. We didn't have breakfast there so can't comment on that.

We arrived by train, and from the station you head straight up the hill, then turn right into the main street and catch the number 7 bus which stops pretty much right outside the hotel. We took a bus to Malaga when we left, and caught a different bus to the bus stop - I don't remember which one (it would pay to ask at your hotel if doing this as the bus station is further out than the train station)

The Cathedral is great, the Alambra I think is perhaps over rated, but certainly impressive and worth the trip.

You don't need a car in Granada - everything is either walkable, or easy to reach on a bus.

To me, this hotel felt like a glorified hostel. Very small room with flourescent high efficiency bulbs. If we had to do over, we would have preferred to stay closer to the charming old town at the base of the hill leading up to the Alehambra, which has lots of restaurants and still just a short walk to shopping.

We needed a one night's stay in Granada whilst travelling through Andalucia. Was worried what this hotel will be like due to low price (45 eur). We were amazed how good it was! The only thing we didn't try was breakfast, so can't comment on that.

GOOD THINGS:
- Great location. You are in the very center, surrounded by shops, cafes, parks. Old town with all the monuments is very close (about 5 min walk). Alhambra is also relatively close (about 1,5 km) and there is a minibus going from the Cathedral to Alhambra and back (1,5 eur one way).
- Room and bathroom were big, well equipped, clean.
- Good hairdryer in the bathroom, also shower cap and shower gel available.
- Window overlooked the street with a beautiful fountain, very nicely light up at night.
- Both lady receptionists (the one at night and the one in the morning) were very friendly, spoke good English, were attentive.
- There is an underground parking very close to the hotel (about two buildings away) and if you stamp your parking card at the reception you get a bit of a discount from the parking fee.
- Mini-bar available in the room with drinks.
- Vodafone shop is right opposite the hotel if you need to buy a Spanish phone card (don't forget to bring your passport!).

NOT SO GOOD THINGS
- The street is central and therefore a lot of traffic passing through. It is not possible to sleep at night with an open window. It may be difficult to fall asleep in the evening unless you are tired. We were really tired so it was OK :) To be fair, the noise goes down after midnight and in the morning it was very quiet, even around 9:00 a.m.
- Wi-fi didn't work, we were told that there is some problem for the whole hotel and they are expecting a technician in the morning. We didn't see any cafes with wi-fi near by.

Hotel Juan Miguel is very practical, because it's at walking distance of all of Granada's attractions, and has a central location. The uphill walk to the Alhambra takes roughly 30 minutes (20-30 minutes if you're energetic).

The room was clean, although somehow old-fashioned; the paints would need some refreshing. Somewhat noisy.

Internet access through WiFi in the room is free; I had decent signals in mine. There's also a public use computer in the lobby, available on a pay per use basis.

The hotel has a private parking, available for 18 euros per day. It is quite narrow, and has a lot of pillars, so beware if you have a big car. Make sure to contact the reception before driving to the hotel: they will send you a map and well detailed, step by step instructions to drive to the parking (the entrance is at the rear of the building, in a small street, and to drive to the hotel, you are allowed take "restricted" streets -- it's okay with the local police as long as the reception gives them your licence plate number once you've arrived).

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and i find it hard to find fault. Excellent central location, car parking in basement, clean, no frills but everything you need for a short stay. Excellent value for money.
Great cafe on the ground floor for coffee/breakfast.

I stayed here for 2 nights and could have easily stayed longer.
The location, right on a main street, was perfect for night owls! There is a large fountain in a square directly opposite the hotel which in the evening is lit up, giving the area a magical and surreal atmosphere. Many hours were spent eating delicious ice cream from the local parlour watching the fountain and the elderly locals sitting and socialising or playing with their grandchildren. Everything you wanted was close to you; it was very easy to find the Alhambra bus, a five minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel itself was old-fashioned inside but endearing and classic. It was well air-conditioned; vital to escape the extreme summer heat outside.
Staff were friendly, spoke good english and had a good knowledge of transport links to areas of interest or travel points.
The rooms were of average size, the en suite a little smaller. The decor was dated but the room served its purpose well.
Would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the centre of the action in Granada but have somewhere comfortable and unfussy to stay.

August 7-9

The smallest room we had in Spain. Inexpensive, clean, adequate, t.v, air conditioning, small wardrobe, shower/tub combo. No internet access. I found free wi-fi in a kebap place near Plaza Nueva. Everyone we talked to in reception spoke adequate English. Used key cards.

Cathedral & Plaza Nueva walkable distance.

To get to the hotel from the train station. Outside the train station doors, walk straight down the street. Turn right on the big intersection. Stay on the right side of the street, where there are a bunch of bus stops. I think you take the #7 bus (doublecheck on the bus signs; every stop is on the sign for each #). Get off at the Puerta Real stop, not the Acerro del Darro stop.

The day of departure from Granada, we had a 9:15 flight to Barcelona. I had confirmed the times and nearest stop of the airport shuttle with the very helpful TI on Plaza Ana Sunday afternoon. The TI closed early - 3:00 p.m. and the doors were promptly shut on time. Fortunately, the airport shuttle stops on Acero del Darro right outside of Hotel del Darro, next to El Corte Ingles. Supposedly, the bus departs from the first stop at 6:25 a.m., to arrive at Hotel del Darro 10 minutes later. I'm glad that we were there early as the airport shuttle arrived at 6:28 a.m. The ride took approximately 45 minutes and we were safely deposited at the tiny Granada airport.
