“fantastic value, location and staff”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Really excellent value, great location about 5 mins from the cathedral, the Nava (tapas street),8 from the Albaicin and the Alhambra.
The staff were marvellous.
Its confusing: you can get a reasonable breakfast, and do leave your car outside while you check in so that the staff can take you to the nearby car park. Granada is not a car city but you are allowed to ignore restrictions if you are accessing the hotel. Do make sure the hotel reports your car reg so that you can take advantage of the exemption

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

We booked this hotel solely on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed! It's located on the 4th floor of a residential building, but once you're inside you forget all about that. The staff was fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The hotel is modern, with nice size rooms and most important, it was very clean. The shower was fantastic and the location can't be beat, close to attractions, restaurants, and the Albaicin neighborhood. Oh and they offer some breakfast items for a small cost. It was perfect, croissants and fresh squeezed orange juice every morning!

Good hotel ticking all the boxes I look for. Great location, 2 minutes from the town centre and right at the base of the Alhambra. Although not in the slightly more scenic old town, for me the fact I didn't have to walk up a big hill every time I wanted to return was better for it. Lots of good restaurants and bars very close, Cathedral just round the corner and never needed to catch a bus to get anywhere. Also as on the fourth floor of a larger building it was very quite. The room was a bit small, but fine for the solo traveller, especially as I was out most of the time. Also clean, comfortable bed, decent bathroom etc. Would have been nice to have some English TV though and wi fi in the room a bit intermit ant, but good access in public areas. Would certainly use this hotel again

Staff was very helpful, but the hotel itself was a bit groomy. Linen and towels were kind of cheap. Our room was overlooking a patio and overall there was not much light coming in. Breakfast was nice and the location is great to visit Granada.

Nice little hotel with a great terrace and helpful staff. walking distance to many parts of city and attractions. Great tapas restaurants nearby. Parking and breakfast extra but still worth the price.

When you arrive you'll find an office block with an entryphone for the hotel which appears to occupy the 4th floor. The staff are excellent - friendly and really work hard to help. However, they're let down by the building.

It's odd that the owners have spent money on mongrammed bed linen and (rather thin) towels when the rooms suffer from noise from outside, from adjacent rooms and from the next floor up and are badly-lit. The breakfast room is very small (3 tables only) and the balcony opening off has 2 tables. If one of them is occupied by a smoker, the door leading to the balcony has to be kept closed to keep the smoke out.

On the upside, it's fairly cheap and it's easy to walk to most of the attractions in Granada from the front door.

When we arrived I was sure that we had made a mistake. There is one plain wooden door with no markings and a buzzer on the right side that lets you into the building. An elevator then takes you to the second floor where you find the reception desk. We found the staff to be friendly, English speaking for the most part, and eager to be helpful. The rooms were basic but comfortable and spotlessly clean. You are also within walking distance to the Alhambra, the Cathedral, the Church of San Antonio (recommended) and the wonderful Plaza Bib-Rambla for lunch and dinner. We would easily stay here again, and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: No particular tips as all rooms appear to be about the same. Again, good, solid, basic accommodation...
