Well first of all, I must say "see Granada and die"! What a beautiful city and Hesperia is worth staying at.
The hotel lies in the middle of the old city close to everything worth seeing in Granada. One of the first things we experienced after making the booking was an email with directions of how to find the hotel, and that’s needed in the tiny streets in the old city. On arriving by car its a good idea to stop outside the gates to the garage under the hotel and get yourself a parking place from the reception before checking in.
My first impression of the reception was "wow" It was typical Moorish in design including the water fountain, an open atrium with rooms all around the floors and a view up to the colourful glass roof. The staff are friendly and helpful check in goes quickly and smoothly.
We chose a Junior suite which we thought was good value for money on the booking site. Our room was excellent! Our only negative comments are firstly it was a bit difficult to find. Secondly if you are handicapped or have heavy luggage you will have a problem without help, the reason being Junior suites are at the top of a small winding staircase which was difficult enough to get up even with small overnight bags. Thirdly, noise, our room was the front of the hotel and subsequently gets a lot of noise from local restaurants and very late at night people moving rubbish bins (or something similar). However the room was wonderful. Typical old Spanish style, a sitting room with coffee table, sofa, TV, French windows and antique sideboard. Bedroom with king size bed (very hard) TV, 2 armchairs and 50" TV. French windows on two walls so plenty of light, sun and air. The bathroom was nearly as big as the bedroom, complete with massage bath, his and hers wash basins, and bidet.
Breakfast room was light and airy and a good selection for breakfast. Terrible coffee machine which takes far too long for a cup of coffee (albeit fresh) but causes long queues. The noise levels are a bit high as well due to the marble floors and walls.
All in all, this is a hotel that can really be recommended.
