I stayed at Hotel Carlos V in a 3-person room with my parents for a few nights. We found the beds comfortable, the AC strong, the tv functional (though we didn't use it much) ,the bathroom fairly large and comfortable, and we had a decent view from our window. There was not tons of space to walk around the room, but we had enough space, even if it was a little tight. Still, for this price (I think we paid around 60 euros a night for a triple room - a fantastic price for this hotel I think).
Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. Our interactions were relatively basic - we asked about tourist sites, tapas bars, taxis, and the like - but everyone a the hotel was willing to help with useful information. The hotel also has a small indoor seating area that opens out onto a balcony with a couple of tables and chairs. The indoor seating area is equipped with a coffee machine (which made delicious coffees for a euro per cup) and another machine with juices and water that cost one or two euros per item. Breakfast is available too - I had some tasty croissants or toast with butter and jam most mornings with fresh squeezed orange juice. The cost of these items was tacked onto our room bill, and they were not expensive at all.
Free wireless internet is available in a few common seating areas of the hotel, but not in the rooms. I saw lots of guests using laptops in the seating area and balcony. Also, one or two desktop computers are available of guests. Printing is available too - you just pay the receptionist for the printouts.
Finally, the location: the hotel is about a 5 minute walk from Plaza Nueva, one of the main plazas close to many tourist sites. It is also close to lots of tapas bars and restaurants. In short, the location is very good.
My family and I had a nice stay here, and I highly recommend this hotel. Keep in mind that this is not a fancy hotel. Nevertheless, for a good price you'll be able to rest in a clean, comfortable, and friendly atmosphere that is close to most of Granada's tourist sites.
