“Friendly and decent hotel”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Hotel is located right in the city centre and presentably decorated. Staff were friendly, informative and recommended restaurants and places of interests to visit around the proximity. You can book flamenco shows as well. Room was basic but clean, equipped with tv and internet. Can also use the computer at the lobby for free. Breakfast was simple but adequate. If you are driving, do take note that parking reserved for hotel guests are not free.

A short walk from the Gran Via and cathedral and easy to get to if you have a car. The hotel offers basic accommodation in a charmless but reasonably clean environment. The rooms are quite small, and recent renovations were strangely executed with fixtures and furniture too big for the space. This place would not be my first choice but if the town is full, or you focus is location you could do a lot worse.

Excellent starting point to reach easily all the main attractions of Granada. Access with car easy and own parking facility (in the middle of a shopping district). Rooms quiet but we had a room without real daylight. As we were only in the hotel at night, it didn't matter. Only breakfast is served at a rich buffet. Staff is helpful and gave us excellent tips for sightseeing and events (flamenco show) and rooms are clean. Public transport and tourist bus to Alhambra is 8 minutes walk away. If you want a functional hotel without glamour its excellent value.

Room Tip: Rooms seem to be good but without nice views.

Good location, can walk to Cathedral, Arab Quarter, or get little red bus to the Alhambra. Also close to pedestrian streets for easy access to shopping and tapas. Could walk to Alhambra, but it is a long uphill walk in the hot sun. Room was large and quiet, bed comfortable, in-room wi-if, good air conditioning, modern bathroom with hair dryer. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is also a convenient breakfast buffet. Please note: there did not appear to be an elevator or any handicap access (12 stairs up to lobby from street, 12 more stairs up to first floor). So please check before booking if you require handicap access.

Room Tip: Hotel is on busy street, so request inner room if you prefer quiet.

This hotel was the worst hotel of our 3 weeks in Spain and France. The smell of paint throughout the hotel and especially in our room was so overwhelming that it felt toxic and we had to ask for a new room which had been painted a day earlier so the smell was a bit less intense but still very strong. The bathroom was so cramped, it would be impossible for a large person to sit on the toilet without their knees hitting the vanity. The reception area is poorly lit as is the parking garage and the whole place is dark and dreary. The only good thing about this hotel was the staff but even they could not make up for the negative experience we had. It was also very noisy on the street outside the room. The room was very cramped with just enough room to navigate around the beds. The bathroom was not very clean with the doorknobs and trash bins clearly coated with guck from who knows what! Lesson learned...you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!

I was so happy that we were only staying in this hotel for one night; and thankfully the last night of our week long trip. We booked this hotel due to its excellent location and it's inexpensive room rate so I guess you get what you pay for. We stayed in room 132 which was through a maze of narrow corridors with thin, dirty looking carpet. The bed was hard as a rock and looked as though the comforter hadn't been washed in ages. We felt like we had laid on rocks that infested us with bugs. The walls were VERY thin in which we were able to hear the rolling of luggage through the hallways or every word people said in the room surrounding ours. The bathroom was a nice size, but the drain didn't work in the tub so our showers ended up being baths. The hotel website also mentions there is a hair dryer in the bathroom, but ours did not include one.

It was great that the breakfast was included in the room rate, but again you get what you pay for. There was a selection of breads, a cold, mushy potato bake, and very few options of fruit. Just a very minimal selection so people with strict dietary requirements, be aware.

The pros: the receptionist was incredibly friendly! She gave us some great tips for site seeing and touring the city. One we truly appreciated was not walking around the Albayzín neighborhood at dark. The streets are narrow and dark with no road signs. Hippies are just sitting around smoking in the corners and our Top 10 book said it's an area prone to pick pocketing. She also informed us of a great lookout spot to get great views of the Alhambra! So her information was very valuable.

The hotel was actually not too difficult to find. It's on a main road called Recogidas and it has a huge sign so you can't miss it. If you have a car, you'll have to park in front of the hotel, request the parking spot from the receptionist and she'll open the parking garage door for you which is right next to the hotel. Parking is 16.50 euros/day, which is not bad compared to other hotels in Spain. It's great knowing the car is safe and secure in an underground parking garage as well.

The location was perfect. It was walking distance to the Alhambra (around 20-30 minutes), the Albayzín neighborhood, and the modern shopping streets. The location really can't be beat.

Other than feeling like we were in a hostel or a university dorm room the hotel was great for a one night stay. If you don't mind being kept up at night, not having the greatest furnishings or breakfast than this hotel would be great for you!
