We booked this hotel 24 hours in advance and were a little nervous! All I can say there is nothing to be nervous about with this hotel It is an absolutely charming place in a great location at a great price.
The charm of this hotel starts once you arrive in the city and use the directions provided by the hotel. As with many European cities there is an area that does not permit vehicle traffic during the day and this hotel is located in this area. The fun thing about staying at this hotel is that you are permitted to drive into the "no vehicle traffic" area of the city. They open the barriers and you need to drive through all the walking tourist and extremely narrow roads. Once you arrive at the hotel they have complimentary parking available at the front door.
To gain access to the hotel you need to ring the door bell and be let in. You walk in the front door and you are in a beautiful charming covered courtyard.
Yes the rooms are on the smaller side but it is a European hotel in a 15th century building. As mentioned by another traveler the noise can carry and if you are close to the elevator you hear it each time it is used. If you are on the front side of the building there is a great view of the Alhambra.
The hotel location is great to walk up to the Alhambra if you use the back stairwell/entrance.
