I am a Marriott rewards member and favor Marriott hotels. I booked this one because it looked decent and was a Marriott. However, we were so pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this hotel with courtyards and architectural details. We stayed in junior suite 001 and it was quiet and lovely. Even if you are not a rewards member, this... More

Nice location. Nice room. Quiet. Good service. Not much of a hotel bar happening, but you will find bars a few blocks away. Close to Cathedral. Centrally located. I would recommend this place to my family members.

Please read my profile for my biases. As a frequent guest of Marriott properties, we tend to stay with them and their partner hotels. This was the first AC Palacio property we visited on a recent trip to Spain and we quite enjoyed it. The rooms are comfortable and decorated in a style that would seem dated if it didn't... More

We stayed here last week, Oct. 31-Nov. 2. Great location, walking distance to everything. Clean, big room/suite, with all the Marriott amenities. The building by itself is beautiful, very elegant. The staff is great. Sergio at the front desk was very attentive at a all times. The sommelier, Monica, is very knowledgeable and we recommend seeking out her suggestions. We... More

The hotel is very close to the Cathedral and easy walking distance of the Albaicin.

A peaceful place right in the centre of Granada. ITs a perfect place to explore the city from then return to sit in the quiet romantic inner courtyard. THe rooms are tastefully decorated and have very large super king sized beds. The only small complaint I have is that the TV is very small for the size of the room.... More

Stayed at the Santa Paula for a 2-night break. Ideal location, everything in walking distance right on the edge of the Albaicín district. Our room in the old building was very comfortable with a good size bathroom (shower over bath, not separate) and small sitting area. It was a bit noisy - we were woken a few times either late...

The perfect place to stay...I thought this hotel was gorgeous when we checked in. A quiet sanctuary off the Main Street. But it's absolutely the most romantic place at night.

We loved this hotel, which is in a great location for exploring Granada. The rooms are decorated in Moorish style without being overdone. The bar in the cloistered courtyard has a truly magical atmosphere.
