As part of our Granada trip, we have particularly fond memories of Shine Hotel, which is a stylish hotel with modern interior converted set from a 15th century moorish mansion. The furnishing is chic and modern, and the rooms facing the front with windows have good views of the Alhambra palace especially in the morning light. The price is extremely... More

The hotel room we stayed in was gorgeous with a small balcony overlooking the busy street below. You could see the towers of La Alhambra also! Excellent location in the historical district but if you're not a local, don't try and drive there, grab a taxi. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed at the Shine Albayzin in the top suite and it did not disappoint. Our view of the Alhambra was spectacular. The room was well-appointed with a comfortable bed, side chairs for relaxing with the complimentary bottle of wine, a mini fridge, and awesome rainfall shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. We bought breakfast one morning,... More

No parking places nearby. The recommended parking place (still almost 1 km away from the hotel) was fully booked. We needed a long time to find another parking place, which was quite expensive and some km away from the hotel so that we needed a taxi. We were staying in one of the apartments, which are located a few hundred... More

This is a boutique hotel just below the Alhambra, in this wonderful Arabic part of Granada called Albaicín. They offer both standard hotel rooms, but also an affordable apartment building about 200 metres uphill in the same street. We stayed in apartment 2B, a large two bedroom flat with a kitchen and a wonderful view to Alhambra. The downside: there's... More

This hotel is a nightmare, it's a shame one cannot give negative points on this site. It's completely incomprehensible to me how they reached such high rankings. It's a nightmare logistically, from entering central Granada to the moment we finally could enter our room, we spent 1,5 hours of juggling our luggage through Granada. The staff is unfriendly, the rooms... More

Location was excellent, an easy walk to the cathedral/town center and a pleasant 25 minute walk to the Alhambra. Our room was spacious with a tiny balcony and a view of the little bridge and waterway across the street from the hotel. The whole place seems a bit dark at first, but this is a pleasant relief from the relentless... More

During our ten days tour to Spain we stayed one night in Granada where we stayed at Shine Albayzin. As we were four of us, parents + 2 children we wanted a family room and we got an apartment which was perfect for us. It was clean, neat, 2 bed rooms, kitchen and a living room. The kitchen was fully... More

The hotel was really nice. It was clean and the receptionists were absolutely amazing. The only negatives were that our room was next to the road and it was noisy one night however that not the fault of the hotel rather the people. The shower room could have been a little bit cleaner. The room was like a mini apartment... More

We got a last minute deal for the 2 bedroom apartment for 70 euros a night. We didn't need a second bedroom but the price was competitive with single rooms. Very important to note the apartment is NOT in the main hotel. You have to walk another 5-10 minutes down the street, away from the city center, to get to... More
