Hotel Las Almenas
Ranked #45 of 123 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We stayed at Las Alemenas for 7 nights at the end of May and it was exceptional value for money. The rooms were scrupulously cleaned every day and were lovely and cool due to the marble flooring, and quiet considering the Acera del Darro is a very busy road. Opt for a room at side or back if you want to avoid traffic noise. The rooms do not have tea and coffee making facilities but with cheap fantastic coffee all over Granada it wasn't really missed. If you are flying into Malaga and are getting a bus to Granada, the hotel is on the 33 bus route from the station and only costs 1.20 euros. The location of the hotel is perfect base for seeing all of Granada, there are bus tour stops on Acero del Darro, and it's in walking distance from the luxurious canvas covered shopping areas. The most beautiful areas of Granada are the Albayzín and Sacramonte, and of course the Alhambra, all are accessible via walking or public transport from Las Almenas. If you love seafood there is an excellent restaurant called El Marre a few doors down on the left of the hotel, fantastic free tapas with a drink from the bar. If you want to try some excellent sherry there is a great little bar further along called Casa Enrique with a fabulous owner, good fun. It's very Spanish, full of sherry barrels and hams with just a few bar stools, try some Manzanilla or Moscatel Palido.

Room Tip: To avoid traffic noise, opt for a room at the back of side

During our visit to Granada we stayed in this hotel. The owner, usually at the reception desk, can help you with all the information you need. Of all the hotels I stayed in, which are quite a lot, this is the best hotel regarding our experience with a sincere high service level. Would definitely recommend and definitely stay here again.

Las Almenas is a great little hotel, with clean spacious rooms and charming decoration. The staff is particularly wonderful: they not only gave my fiancee a friendly welcome and all of the services we needed, but went above and beyond by allowing us to print out our boarding passes in order to avoid horrendous Ryanair fees. Highly recommended.

Small, clean rooms decorated in a Moorish style.
Very friendly and helpful chap on the desk.
Near enough to all the places you would want to visit in the old town. We walked everywhere.
Down sides are no fridge or kettle and the road noise can be obtrusive.
Car parking is about 200m away and cost 16 EUR per day if you get your ticket stamped by the hotel.
Would use again.

Nice clean room but not too central to attractions – only 3 floors. All attractions to the left of hotel. We took a taxi from hotel to Alhambra (under 10 mins and euro $5.50). Too steep and windy to walk up. Most walk down but we saved our legs for the tour around Alhambra and for the rest of the day so we took bus no. 30 down (euro 1.20 each about 5 mins bus ride down to Cathedral). Cathedral closed from 1-4pm.

Public car parking just across the river immediately underground on the right. Hotel will stamp the ticket and you pay only euro 16 instead of euro 18 per night. We pulled up to the side of the road and unload our bags before we parked our car. We then walked from car park to hotel (just 5 mins). Very pleasant, polite and efficient check in and service – well spoken English. There was no need to ask as everything was explained with all attractions shown upon arrival. There is a big supermarket to the right of the hotel (less than 5 mins).

We were looking for one night's accommodation in the old part of Granada. Our aim was not to visit the Alhambra but to experience a bit more of Granada itself.
Searching through Tripadvisor produced any number of three star hotels in the old town near the Albaicin area.
We chose Hotel Las Almenas for no particular reason except that it was in the right area and they had a good special on a standard twin room at 45.00 Euros for the night and according to the very detailed directions it seemed easy to reach by car.
Reaching it was a nightmare. The very best advice we can give anybody is to enquire, when you book, about the nearest one or two parking garages. Travel light, park and walk to your hotel or take a taxi.
Las Almenas itself is great. Friendly staff, great position, quality information at the front desk in English and good service.
The room itself was perfectly clean Our request for extra pillows was promptly met and the beds were comfortable. WIFI reception was good but the batteries of the TV remote were flat and there are no manual controls on the set.

The area arond the hotel offers a wide choice of eateries and a couple of tremendous coffee shops/bakeries.
For the cultural side take a walk up Acera Del Darro to Calle Reyes Catolicos. Cross Plaza Nueva and continue along Carrera Del Darro to the end and then proceed along a bubbling stream to Paseo Del Padre Manjon. There you will find a choice of restaurants with a view of the walls of the Alhambra. Full of atmosphere for those with imagination and an inclination towards history.
The more intrepid traveller may continue further up with a steep road to the viewpoints over Granada. (marked Mirador on your street map)There are some nice restaurants in the side streets off this road with stunning views but they are not for budget travellers. Starters from 10 Euros and cheapest main course 18 Euros. I shudder to think what a bottle of Rioja would cost but they are charming establisments full of atmosphere and great views. If you feel like a splurge or celebrating a special occasion, go for it!. There is also a very regular little bus that runs up there . Ask at the hotel for details.
In summary Hotel Las Almenas is good, friendly, clean and affordable. Take the cost of parking into consideration if you travel by car - it adds a third to your bill, even after a small discount from Las Almenas.

Room Tip: If you plan to stay more than one or two nights, opt for the de luxe doubles or twins with a balcony...

GREAT value for the price. We were only in the room to sleep, as our trip to Granada was tightly booked with adventured, so the room was exactly what we needed. Room was clean, shower was hot and service was great. There was even a hair dryer (usually not standard in a room at this price). We got to Granada too early to check in, but the staff didnt hesitate to offer to hold our bags while we explored Granada. Likewise, on the day that we had to check out, our flight didnt leave until that evening so they offered the same. No hassles what so ever. And all with a smile. Awesome value for the price.
