As our stay was for an Alhambra visit, there is no better place to reside. Beautifully quiet, especially after 6pm when all the visitors had departed. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the Generalife gardens and with good space, an excellent bathroom and comfy beds, there was little more to want!
Breakfast was excellent too and included in our room rate of 195Euros (booked in August for our stay in November).
I have learnt from previous stays in Paradors, not to eat in (other than breakfast) - I am a bit of a foodie and it saddens me that the Spanish government don't see Parador food as an opportunity to show the best of Andalucian gastronomy.....we did grab a late lunch on arrival (for convenience) and it was poor - 40euros for 2 with a dreadful small bread roll of meats/tomato and a grim salad each (with a glass of cava each) - very very poor value......a taxi to town is only 5 euros, and there is a little bus too - 2 euros, so go out to eat!
The staff are quietly efficient but indeed are not overly friendly ( a pity as Spaniards are generally welcoming) as others have commented. It seems the rooms are variable - I asked for quiet, a view and twin beds and ours was excellent.....and good value.......number 302 I can recommend!
The location is unbeatable especially as taxis into the body of town are so cheap.
