  • We had a very peaceful stroll along here. We stopped at the La Fontana bar, sensible prices and not your normal tapas, delightful staff who made 4 fat old men very welcome! The mixed ancient architect...  more »

  • Great location and nice bar downstairs, free random tapas with every beer!
  • Very nice hotel. The location is perfect! Near the palace and the cathedral. We had a good deal for 62 euro / night. Close by: hop on hop off, free guided city tour, restaurants and café's. Parking at local parking garage for € 16,50 /day. We had a room at 3rd floor with view at the palace. Room had Air Condition and mini bar, bathroom etc. 14m2
  • Beautiful view of the walls of the Alhambra was a very nice touch. However, an average of deep room decor and light musty smell does not allow me to admit the hotel higher ratings.

  • Hotel well located, close to everything and to wire it... Good friendly staff. There is a bar down for breakfast. Worse the soundproofing is null. All of the street is heard and other rooms.

  • Room duplex Boabdil is a hoax, the fantastic photos do not show that the bathroom is very small and with shower, the staircase to the floor of the bed is miniscule for raising or lowering at night and kill you, up there is no more than a Plug and if you want to put the phone you have to put under the pillow because the plug is high and there is no table to leave the mobile. A disappointment for how expensive that came out. I tried to cancel the second night just enter and see it but they excused themselves that the reservation by Booking was without the possibility of cancellation (of course, when contracts with cancellation is until two days before if you don't finally came, and I knew that the trip is not suspended, wanted to leave the hotel was like this and not for personal reasons). Of most disappointing. Good breakfast at the bar that underneath, very good toast.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
