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.

  • I really liked Grenada and all its offerings, but there are so many tourists! Even in winter. . .Corral del Carbon is one of the more tranquil sites to visit, where we were able to catch our breath. Not spectacular like the Alhambra, but calm and charming nonetheless.
  • Very friendly staff on the exhibit. The lady showed us an astrolabe, books, local food "tapas" places. And chat with us about the Moorish influence on Spain. You can tell she loves history. You can get the ALHAMBRA tickets and save yourself a line.
  • Good place to pick up your tickets for the Alhambra. It's an automated machine, you just need your code from your booking.
  • This isn't much more than an ancient courtyard, but it has eons of history which are easy to sense. Not hard to imagine you're part of a caravan arriving here from the Middle East a millennium ago. Definitely worth walking a few yards to see it, and it's a great place to begin a walking tour of Granada.
  • Interesting place. Easy enough to order tickets on line and pick up here.
