This is a great carmen with a fabulous owner, Manuel. When we arrived, Manuel was there to greet us. He was an extremely kind man and does a fabulous job of running this small hotel. Everything was absolutely spotless, and he was also helpful with restaurant and site seeing recommendations and information. Hubby and I had a nice large room with a terrace and our 19 yo daughter had her own single room. We would have been fine with the three of us sharing one room, but Manuel does not have any roll away beds, so we needed to book two rooms. Manuel kept apologizing for the size of the bathroom, but in all honesty I’ve stayed in places with MUCH smaller bathrooms, and we thought it a pretty good size.
The common spaces are very nice. There is a nice living room with lots of windows and sunshine. The terraces have incredible views of the city and Sierra Nevada. The hotel is located about halfway up the hill between the city center and the Alhambra. An easy 5-10 min. walk down to the city center, a bit of a hike back up but we did it all but one time. If you don’t want to walk up you can easily catch the Alhambra bus, which stops at the Alhambra Palace hotel, just a bit up from the Carmen – so then you only have to walk down.
Breakfast is simple with ham, cheese, toast, yogurt, fruit and cereal and there was delightful lady serving – but bit of a disappointment that the breakfast is an additional charge considering how basic it is.
