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!
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
