Stayed here for two nights. I had booked directly with the Parador and had to say to myself "Once in a lifetime" when I saw the cost - but oh, how it was worth it for the location! Just magical to wander round the Alhambra in the evening when everyone else has gone home.....
Parking is provided though it's a bit tricky to find you way in. The streets of Granada are so narrow and twisty that in my opinion it's not worth taking your own car out again - a taxi only costs a few euro and will save a lot of shredded nerves.
Diego on reception must get top marks for a wonderful check-in and overall helpfulness - I had also pre-booked our Alhambra tour tickets for the following day on which, unfortunately, there was a General Strike! This was the whole reason we were visiting Granada.... No matter - Diego was able to get us tickets for a tour on the morning we were leaving, and so saved the day. (And the guide was excellent, top marks to her also).
Our room overlooked the garden, and we were able to keep the room beautifully cool with the windows open and the shutters closed over. The bathroom was well appointed, and the walk-in shower was brilliant.
Breakfast was much like the one we'd experienced in the Nerja parador, an extremely good buffet spread plus some additional hot dishes. On the second night we had dinner in the restaurant and it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten: I started with a sort of Arab pastry, very light, filled with finely shredded chicken, rice, almonds and sultanas, delicious. This was followed by roast shoulder of baby lamb stuffed with mushrooms and spinach, and it was to die for. Service at all meals was exemplary.
Was it worth the cost? Absolutely - for that very special trip!
