“Unique place to stay”
Reviewed September 2, 2006

We had a great experience at the Carmen. First off, we were greeted by Ana, the manager. She is absolutely the nicest and most gracious host imaginable. She greeted us with water and a glass of wine, and was always available for restaurant recommendations. She also speaks fluent english, which helped since our spanish really needs improvement!

The hotel is very unique. It is in a traditional home, and the owners actually still live on the top floor. We met them twice, and they were also very gracious. One night we stayed in and had a bottle of wine in the front yard, and they brought over snacks for us.

The rooms are all very unique. We absolutely loved the decor, very cozy.

The location can't be beat. You can see the Alahambra from the roof!

The bad:

We had no hot water one day. Because this is more of a home and not a hotel, they were not equipped to deal with this. The water was freezing all day, not even lukewarm. This was a bit annoying, but its one of the expected problems with a small inn in Spain.

Breakfast is not worth it. The continental is too expensive, you're better of going down the road and stopping at one of the many cafes. Although they had a full english breakfast, the inn is short-staffed and weren't equipped to serve more than 4 at a time. We didn't have an opportunity to try it, as there was a family always up and at breakfast before us. The wait would have been too long. This really wasnt a problem though, as we grabbed a snack and coffee just down the road.

Overall one of our best stays. Highly recommended

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in a lovely suite on the 2nd floor for our very brief honeymoon. It was simply lovely. The most gorgeous gardens, antiques, setting, courtyard, staff - just everything was charming. Beats big anomymous hotels hands down - like being a welcome guest in a secret castle. A real taste of classic Spain.

Excellent location, very small intimate hotel - lovely indoor courtyard. Friendly staff. Room - we had the special with the view - good sized. Thought hotel was overpriced though and should have included breakfast. Water in the morning was also only luke warm which was disappointing.

The effort to find this inn was worth it....although it took us almost two hours. This 16th century former mansion was once owned by the Catholic clergy and is located in the Arabic section of Granada - the oldest part...consequently has very narrow winding streets. We would definitely stay here again - the location was good and the rooms were lovely - the best part was the warm hospitality shown to us by the owners - we felt we were guests in their beautiful home.
If you are driving to Granada, parking is limited. We parked in a garage about a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
