“Buffet could be better laid out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The hotel is away from the city center and situated next to a motorway. The exterior of the hotel makes quite an entrance with a grand fountain – looks beautiful. The room is decorated in a burnt orange colour and tastefully decorated. The beds were comfy and huge but the bathroom was extremely small. My husband and I are both small in structure and it felt really claustrophobic when both of us were in the bathroom together.

What really bothered me was the arrangement of the buffet. Dishes were not arranged in a logical and easy to find manner – the coffee cups and coffee machine was standing behind a pillar that you almost missed it. Some dishes on the buffet were placed in a convenient position where you could see them while others were behind pillars making it difficult to see. We had dinner at the hotel and I had completed my dinner and only then realised that there were more dishes behind the pillar. Not sure why this is done this way. Arranging all the dishes together just makes it easier for guests to see.

This was the second time we stayed in this hotel through a fantastic special offer. Upon arrival we parked the car straight in the hotel's own underground parking of which they have lowered the price to EUR 10 / day.

The staff at reception were again very friendly and accomodating. The central lobby of the hotel feels very spacious and modern, albeit a bit cold in winter. The carpeted hallways, however, feel warm and help to keep the hotel very quiet at night.

All the rooms we have stayed in in this hotel have always been clean and spacious. The electric blinds are a nice touch. If you stay on the side of the Sierra Nevada, great to be able to open the blinds without having to get up and see the snow in the mountains (in winter, of course) from your bed.

The Spa is an excellent place to relax, especially after a day in the city centre our up in the mountains, with the Sierra Nevada less than 30km away. The hotel can help you with your equipment rental if you are planning on going skiing. In fact, the hotel is a great retreat from the busy ski-resort.

The city centre is indeed a 20-30 minute walk away, but during a short stay that has never been a problem for us. In fact, the walk is one straight line will take you past various bars where a quick drink will always be accompanied by a (free) tapa.

In summary, if you want to enjoy the best of the Sierra Nevada and also see the city of Granada, this hotel may well be the right place for you. Shop around for a great deal.

Came to this hotel as a business traveler. It looks good from the outside but as already one reviewer has commented, the rooms are worn-down. I'm attaching a picture of the ceiling of my room. But one could live with ugly aesthetics, however bearing the brunt of a cold night without heat (a/c) is unforgivable.

As I couldn't believe that the a/c was not working prooperly, I checked the operating instructions in the room's service directory booklet. I noticed that the sensor attached to the window was broken, so it was blocking the a/c-heater. I called room service to report the problem and to get it fixed. After 10' a man came, inspected it and told me that nothing could be done to fix it and that this is a problem in many rooms... absolutely unacceptable.

DOn't take any chances, don't come here.

Once again it was confirmed that this hotel is excelent choice with warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. It is a little bit far away from the city center but only 20 minutes walking distance which for as was perfect.
The only objection is that staff does not speak well english, at least the one in spa.
When we called to book the termin she could not understand even our room numer, shortly we gave up.
Everything else was just fine.

Room Tip: Do not take the room facing the highway, it can be very noisy if the windows is open.

It is a really good hotel, clean, beautiful, a little far from city historic center. I got it on trivago and it was a good deal, besides, food it's not so expensive in the hotel. Ha a private parking, staff are really nice and willing to help.

I have been there for 2 weeks to work in Granada. It is good looking from the exterior and interior but in reality the materials used to build it are of bad quality. The rooms are standard, with a good view if you are on the sierra side with the big drawback that the motorway is just in front of you !
Wifi is non existent or really poor. If you really need to connect you should take an ethernet cable with you to connect to the network in your room.
The parking price is an incredible 15 euros per day and you can not park outside.
I put a ranking 3/5 because it is close to alhambra and because the breakfast buffet is alright, but you can find much more cheaper hotels in the surroundings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the motorway side !

We only stayed for one night and I think that was enough as this appears to be a hotel to accommodate business travellers/conferences rather than tourists although bus loads were staying as well. Its very keenly priced and for that alone the room was worth it but I agree with another reviewer in that the rooms are very hot. If you open a window its like sleeping on a motorway as its noisy. Bathrooms are good and the toilet is amazing - the highlight of the stay! Beds are really comfortable and the room is very clean. Toiletries, hairdryer and mini bar are all provided. Free wifi doesn't work well at all. The check in took a long time and there were only four of us. Breakfast, whilst plenty of choice, much of it wasn't fresh: tinned fruit...in Spain? What's that all about?! They ran out of yogurt 15 minutes after breakfast started. Cheese looked packaged and so did the meat. Cold water for tea. Coffee so dreadful it was undrinkable. Only one credit card machine which wasn't working, so much confusion about this. To be fair once we mentioned the dreadful breakfast to reception staff and I suggested that for customer service they shouldn't be charging us for breakfast, they agreed. If you're going by car the hotel is appointed just off the motorway and there's an underground car park for €15. Taxi fares are around €6+ into town and the Alhambra. More if ordered by reception as the clock starts ticking from the time they start the journey to pick you up. Not a great location if you want to be in the centre but the price of the room perhaps is a compensation.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room away from the motorway if they have any.
