We recently returned from a vacation in Spain that took us to Granada for 3 nights. Friends had recommended other hotels that were booked, so we again put our trust in our fellow Trip Advisors and we were not disappointed. This hotel hits the mark in the usual ways: charming, comfortable, situated in the Albayzin section with good access to great dining, and a short uphill to the Alhambra, making for unending evening monument gazing.
However, where this place truly excelled was in the generous advice provided to us by Wilfredo at the front desk. He explained the ticketing system for the Alhambra (ticketmaster take note--your website directions in Spanish don't help those of us who took French in high school), suggested excellent dining off the beaten path, and called EuropCar for us to make our rental car reservation. He was always cheerful, even when we had trouble with the front door buzzer. His English is impeccable, owing to an extended stint in Ireland and a brother in Miami. Thank you, Wilfredo!
