It is hard to believe that this quiet small boutique hotel is just 1/2 block from the busy central tourist corridor (Calle Calzade) and three blocks from the Parque Centrale, the heart of the city. Location, location, location ...
I share the other reviewers' appreciation of the owners, Valeria and Franco. Both were wonderful hosts, generous with their time and general good cheer. They know Granada: the people, restaurants and interesting places to visit. I arranged some of my travel plans with Valeria. Her English does the job; Franco and I spoke in French.
My room was clean, not too big nor too small, with functioning air conditioning, wi-fi, and hot water. The breakfast menu was basic but the execution was above average. The staff was pleasant, competent and had no trouble with my coming-and-goings at odd hours.
Needless to say, I strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking beyond the bigger and pricier Granada hotels for a more intimate and eclectic atmosphere.
