“Superb hotel and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

This Parador was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Set in the Monastery in the Alhambra the location is postcard perfect. The rooms are compact but fine and the Restuarant first class. Great selection of local dishes and a good wine and sherry list. Only quibble is that it was overheated. Why do rooms need to be set at 24 degrees? In the Restuarant I wanted only a tshirt and needed to retreat to the cold air half way through the meal!

We are 'Amigos de Paradores' which is the loyalty club you can join if you like Parador hotels in Spain...we love them so have been members of the club for quite some time. We knew this property gets book up months in advance as they only have 40 rooms in a converted old convent built in the grounds of the Moorish Alhambra Palace in Granada. So we booked about 10 months beforehand...and it was worth it!
If you like being surrounded by history and having the grounds of an ancient palace on your doorstep...and exclusively yours in the evening...then you'll love this hotel.
We arrived mid-afternoon and used the information the hotel had sent us to find the small car park used exclusively by the hotel guests...just next door to the hotel. We were upgraded to the Honeymoon suite, which is on two floors of a small tower. From the large bed you could see all around the Generalife gardens and down towards Granada itself as it had seven separate windows...it was like sleeping in a lighthouse, except more romantic and luxurious. So much so that we decided to have Room Service and enjoy one of the best views in town.
The menu offers lots of regional dishes...my veal just melted in the mouth and the special dessert tasters were delicious.
Everybody in the hotel was extremely helpful, especially Carlos in Reception who showed us to our room, booked a tour around the Alhambra Palace for the next day and also made a reservation for a table at 'Las Estrellas de San Nicolas' restaurant across the valley from the Parador, with wonderful views of the Palace at night. He was extremely helpful and really made our stay special.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and seemed newly painted and the bathroom was huge and beautifully appointed with marble and chrome.
We didn't need to use our car for all our stay in Granada as the Palace is on a hill and a delightful walk through the woods down into the Plaza Nueva, where we shopped and had delicious tapas. We walked a lot as Granada always seems to have something fascinating to visit 'just around the corner'...lots of small squares with beautiful restaurants to eat at in the surprisingly warm winter sun...then got a taxi back to the hotel for less than four euros.
This wonderful hotel has so much to offer and Granada is the sort of place you really want to re-visit...this was our second time there as we only touched on the sights last time.
I would recommend this hotel without any doubts as we had a purely magical stay...I hope you do too!

Room Tip: Ask well in advance for the suite in the tower as it really is very special...but book it way in adv...

This parador is really unique. You stay in a historic building, in a location that could not be better (right in the Alhambra), the rooms are very nice, the views from the room are soothing, the food is very good. This parador is a dream-come-true. An unforgettable experience.
Tip: go for the Alhambra Night experience, which gives you admission to almost all places you can visit during the day, but without the crowds. Ask the front desk. UNFORGETTABLE!!!

It was planed as a lifetime exsperience. Slightly overpriced but location is everything. So if you want to spoil yourself with the special experience to stay in an old convent right in the middle of the Alhambra this is the place. The service and food is exellent as one will expect in a hotel like this

if you are visiting la Alhambra then this is definitely the place to stay (if you can afford it) as there could not be a better location! You have views to the Generalife, delicious food (breakfast and dinner), modern rooms and welcoming staff. If you do would rather not have dinner in the hotel (though I highly recommend the food) you can go to one of the "carmens" and eat there as it is round the corner to the entrance of the Alhambra.

Where else can you stay on the grounds of a 13th century place? In a restored convent filled with antiques and history? Wander around at night, under a full moon? We loved this place, it was our splurge for the Spain trip, but well worth it. We stayed 2 nights in a room in the old wing, overlooking the pool and grounds. The room was enormous and very clean. It was well-stocked with modern amenities, turn-down service, fluffy towels, comfy beds, and a large bathroom. The breakfast buffet, while pricey, was extensive and delicious; you can sit outside on the patio overlooking the Alhambra grounds, with St. Nicholas and the Generalife in the distance. Even if you don't stay there, at least go for lunch, or coffee, or a drink - the food is as delicious as the view. Pros - all, cons - none. For us this was a one-of-a-kind experience and I strongly recommend it!

What an experience to stay in a wonderfully restored old convent right in the heart of the Alhambra. We stayed 2 nights here and 2 nights at the Albaycin.

The Parador offers very comfortable modern rooms with great views of the city and the Alhambra. Beautiful grounds and just so wonderful to be able to walk around and view the Alhambra at any time of day or night. The terrace outside the restaurant offers an amazing view of Generalife and the Summer Palace.

Staff are very helpful and always happy to offer advise and arrange bookings you may need.

Breakfast is excellent and so was the dinner that we had there.

Highly recommended even if just for 1 night. Immerse yourself in its beauty.
