Puerta de Las Granadas
Ranked #16 of 124 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2009

This hotel is just up the Cuesta de Gomerez from Plaza Nueva. Cuesta means "ascent", and indeed this road leads steeply up to the Alhambra. However it's no longer a bus route, being access only, so there is little or no traffic. And the noisy bustle of the Plaza quickly reduces to utter peace and quiet as you reach the hotel.

This could be described as a "hidden gem". It's relatively small (16 rooms), but reasonably well appointed, including internet access, a decent breakfast for around 7 euros, a secluded second floor terrace, and a view from the top floor. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and spoke excellent English. They were particularly helpful in arranging our Alhambra tickets. (Really you should reserve these in advance, but in March there was no problem in getting tickets for the next day.) There is a lift to all but the very top floor. Free tea and coffee are available at all times.

Our room was relatively small (there were both smaller and much larger rooms), but it had a decent shower, comfortable bed (we could have done with additional pillows though), and rear views over the terrace and adjacent gardens. Utterly tranquil; the only sound was a barking dog. The only minor quibble was that the shower gel ran out - and the toilet rolls nearly did as well. As we stayed 3 nights, we would have expected these to be checked and replaced as necessary.

Given its central but quiet location, the moderate prices, and the friendly welcome, we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Booked for a Christams present for my wife, we stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor, which are a bit more expensive but have fantastic views. I had the impression before i went that the hotel is a bit "olde worlde" but it is very modern inside, and the fixtures and fittings are of a high standard. The room is not huge, but is adequate, the bathroom is only big enough for one at a time to be in there, however this doesnt seem a problem.. I notice anotherrecent reviewer mentioned no heating, this was also not a problem in our room which had an air con unit which also worlked as a heater, plus another small blower/heater. it WAS cold the first day when we arrived, but overnight the temp rose 10 degrees, so the following day we needed the air con!
The staff were fantastic from before we arrived (with booking thealhambra, sending info about buses, and genrallyresponding within minutes to e-mails) On arrival the receptionist showed us where everything was in a map she gave us, including the areas to go looking for tapas, shopping etc. The location was pefcet forgetting to see theAlhambra and the old town, and for finding endless places to eat and drink, but it was quiet at night so we were not aware of being in the centre of the city, and the views were fabulous.

Came here for a one night stay in Granada. The location is very good albeit it is really hard to find. It's in a hidden street by the square. The customer service was fantastic. My major issue was that the rooms were extremely cold. We bundled under the blankets and we were still cold. No heating in the room. Other than that, its a good hotel for a short stay.

Just a great little place to spend a few days in Granada. Perfect location just off a main road on a quiet sidestreet, and very near everything to see or do in the city...main shopping areas, Alhambra, tapas zone etc.

Random and unusual Granada tip: if you want to spend a day skiing up in the Sierra Nevada, all you need is a 15 minute taxi ride to the main bus station and a 40 minute bus ride up the mountain and you're there for the day....lovely resort and great skiing...

The staff are very helpful and speak very good English. The hotel is in the ideal position to visit the tourest areas locally. The bus from the airport, 3 euros one way stops on the main road in the centre 5 minutes away.

The rooms are well presented if a little on the small side. Breakfast is 6 euros hepl yourself buffet. Plenty of tapas bars and restaurants witin a few minutes on this hotel.

Quiet at night the road the hotel is situated on is a no through road.

Overall the hotel was the most friendly I stayed at on this trip.

This hotel is very conveniently located at the bottom of the hill towards Alhambra (it is a very pleasant uphill walk to Alhambra, didn’t have to take the little red bus). The receptionist was super friendly and helpful. She spoke very good English. She gave us valuable tips on how to tackle the Alhambra grounds, suggested a few restaurants etc... We didn’t know how to work the air-conditioning at first, but the receptionist was quick to help us with that. The hotel has very fast internet, offers free coffee/tea/hot chocolate in its well-stocked kitchen. The actual hotel room itself was very small (even for European standard). The bathroom sink was tiny (like the size of a salad bowl) and there was almost no counter space for toiletries/clothes; the shower door doesn’t shut properly. If your room faces the courtyard or any public space, make sure your curtains are shut properly because anyone can easily look in.
I felt like we were spoiled by the great services from the receptionist; no other hotels throughout the Spain trip came close to this level of exceptional 10/10 service. Unfortunately, the room itself… it’s definitely not 3 stars.

We stayed at the Puerta de las Granadas for 3 nights in Nov and thought it was a really good hotel for a short break. We had the Cathredral view room which was fine - nice bathroom and good views from the windows. Others have commented on the small rooms - wouldn't be ideal if you had large suitcases but it was fine otherwise. Reception staff were v helpful and there are two free computers for guest use. We didn't try the breakfast - Euros 6.50 pp per day as there are loads of good places close by.
