Me and my wife spent 5 days in this wonderful little hotel in the mid of February. The room was quite large and clean. The staf is very helpful and they make you feel like you are in home. They serve a very quality homemade breakfast. The only minus is that they don't have a restaurant in the hotel but overall was a really great experience! We surely will come back again!!

My wife and I spent two nights in a deluxe room located on the third floor of this small intimate hotel which afforded wonderful views of the Alhambra on the opposite hill. The room was simply delightful with lovely little features such as carved wooden doors, window shutters, an exposed wooden ceiling, tiled flooring and a cosy bed. The snow covered Sierra Nevada behind the Alhambra seemed to add a chill to the March air but the room remained warm and comfortable and is equipped with air conditioning for summer.

There is a very pleasant small lounge on the ground floor. It's beside the central courtyard which was covered during our stay due to changeable weather but the covers can be rolled back when the weather improves. The overall impression is one of calmness, peace and quiet.

The hotel is located near the top of Albaicin, the old Moorish ghetto that clings to the hill opposite the Alhambra and affords fine views of it, the city and landscape beyond. The streets are a joy to walk around but they are narrow and steep in places. The city below is reached by a 10 minute walk downhill or by bus which stops right next to the hotel every 15 minutes. Comfortable shoes are recommended and ladies should leave the heels behind.

The young lady on reception during our stay was outstanding. Clearly well informed and aware of the queries guests might have she provided accurate, concise and relevant information in a most friendly and polite manner.

A perfect place to stay in Granada.

Room Tip: You will pay extra but the deluxe room with a view of the Alhambra across the roof tops of Albaicin...

Eight of us descended on the Santa Isabel hotel for a 4 day stay, taking up 4 double/twin rooms. Good, well appointed rooms: some have outside windows, while others have window onto the internal courtyard. The courtyard is quaint, but might pose a problem for lack of privacy, depending on your disposition. These minus points are offset by the many good points. We were happy there and would return, albeit being careful to choose a room with an outside window.
Good breakfast, including home-made marmalade and cake. No need to go hungry. The hotel does not have a restaurant or bar. There are a few good restaurants within 5 minutes walk, or it's a 10-minute walk downhill into town where there are many places to eat.
The staff on reception were very helpful.
We especially enjoyed the guest lounge, where the 8 of us gathered to partake of fig liquor, compliments of the hotel. What a pleasant way to start the evening, and end it too!!

You get a good impression about this guest house even before you arrive when they email you a detailed map of how to find your way there.There is an underground car park next door if you need to park.Great location,to the left out the front door it is a 5 min walk to San Nicholas where you get a great view of the Alhambra.Easy walk down to the old town to visit the Catherdral and other touristy sights.
Our room on the first floor was wonderful,comfy bed,TV,sofa,mini-bar,safe with a good size bath to relax in after a day sightseeing.As we stayed in February the heating coming up from under the floor was welcome and gave the room a perfect temperature for the time of year.
Breakfast consisted of a choice of egg,cereal,breads,friut,yoghurt,cake,salad all buffet style with various choices of drinks.
The staff were polite and helpful.

I recently stayed at the Santa Isabel la real, we made use of the parking which was great as there is no parking anywhere in this area. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are lovely, the staff made us very welcome. the only concern I had was with breakfast, it was cold everything and very limited in variety. It really put a shame on hotel. the only other niggle i have is that the hotel is at the top of the albaycin and unless you are willing to walk up each time or catch a bus or taxi to the area it is not around much to do not like hotels at the bottom that is nearer activities.

Lovely stay though hope the change the breakfast soon....

Every detail in this boutique hotel was well thought out. The staff were all very helpful. Breakfast was from 7 - 10:30 and included everything. The woodwork and furnishings in the room were of high quality. The bathroom was spacious. The living room was a nice place to relax and look at old pictures of Granada. Everything was spotlessly clean. The bus outside the hotel ran every 15 minutes and it was very easy to get around. You were also able to walk to restaurants.

This small hotel is beautifully located right on top of the hill opposite to Alhambra with a fantastic view over it. It has a very cute small interior courtyard with an adjacent "living room" that is quite cozy and features some local liquors on the table that seems to be freely accessible. I was really delighted by how friendly and helpful all staff members were from the cleaning lady to the receptionist. Rooms on the base floor are a little bit nosier as they are located on the ground floor right by the check-in. I recommend the 1st and 2nd floor as the ones with the best view and most quiet rooms.

The breakfast buffet was quite fine with some homemade marmelade breads, cake, and others. I stayed for two nights and definitely recommend this hotel as a romantic hideout with local atmosphere and personal charm.
