The Parador is housed in a renovated monastery within the walls of the Alhambra. It is one of only 2 hotels thus situated (the other being the Hotel America). It is a luxury hotel in every sense of the word, from the rooms to the setting to the restaurants within to the public areas. It has its own gardens adjacent to the Alhambra gardens that provide a pleasant stroll. It also has free WiFi, a bit unusual for an upscale hotel.
We had a spectacular view of the Alhambra gardens from our room; most rooms have this view, and the ones that don't have an equally spectacular view of the city of Granada. Rooms are very modern, with "smart card" key entry (rather than swipe cards), remote lighting control, plenty of storage, a minibar that wasn't too overpriced, and comfortable bed. The bathroom was very modern and practical.
Entrance to the Alhambra itself is just steps away.
Overall, as close to a perfect stay as you can imagine, and worth the price.
