Azahar Hostal
Ranked #117 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Reviewed April 15, 2013

I had booked a double room for 2 people for 1 night through booking.com, but when we reached there, after a horrid hour trying to find this place, whose address no one including the tourist office was sure of, we were terribly disappointed with the shabby treatment given to us. The trouble began when the cold unsmiling, hostile old hostess was reluctant to show us our room before payment. Booking.com's description of our double room said that the room had views of Granada city, a dvd player, free wifi. The room we were given was on the street corner with blinds that wouldn't open, no tv, and of course therefore no DVD player and it turned out no wifi at all. Upon politely asking our very dour hostess if it was indeed the same room as we had booked, given its very cramped size, location on the noisy street corner and the absence of facilities our booking.com confirmation had promised, we received the passive aggressive replies: "I have other bookings," "it must be some other hostel," and that we could speak to somebody else whose English was perfect. A bearded and helmeted old man came some 20 mins later and banged aggressively on our door, violently accusing us of having upset his wife!!! He would only shout and would not lower his voice despite being requested several times and demanded that we leave right away if we did not like the room. He also said that the DVD player and the views were in one version booking.com's own fiction and in his other version, speaking of some other establishment with the same name. His belligerence continued to demand that we leave his premises immediately as our continued occupancy of the room that we had paid for would supposedly dirty it. Since we could not take either the rudeness or the violence anymore, we asked for our money back and left. None of our experiences either in Spain or in Granada or anywhere for that matter prepared us for this!

Room Tip: I would avoid

It is not easy to find it because the hostal and its address aren't in the gps map but Hotel Plaza is in front of it.
5 minutes walk from the Alhambra and city centre, than, thanks to the free parking, you can easly visit Granada by foot.
Staff very kind and helpful, but if you go in winter (like me) remember to write your arrival time in order to find the room warm otherwise, they don't turn on the electric heater.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the back because I stayed in a room on the street and it was very noise due to alh...

Booked this for a one night visit to Granada during our honeymoon. The location is perfect for visiting the Alhambra within a 10 minute walk and there are plenty of buses just down the road to to other areas of the city. We were slightly flusted on arrival as we had got a little lost driving into Granada and we didnt have long until our ticket was valid in the Alhambra palace, but Lupe, the lady at the hotel, gave us a map and highlighted points where we could go to get a drink and some tapas before our visit to ensure we had had something and also gave us a bottle of water which was an absolute god send as it was so hot and we were able to refill it throughout our visit from the drinking fountains. She also gave us directions to a couple of restaurants for the evening so we could overlook the Alhambra. The room was very clean and perfect for our visit.
