Just get a hotel with air conditioning because it will still be hot in August.

I would say that it's a bit less busy in August. Probably a similar number of tourists, so no great difference in terms of booking hotels, but fewer local people, because it's peak holiday season. This can make the city feel relatively empty. It bears repeating that July/August are not particularly high season for Granada - tourist arrivals are spread out fairly evenly throughout the year, with peaks for particular weekends/weeks and public holidays, rather than for whole months.

Years ago in August you could have closed your eyes and walked the full length of Gran Via with no danger of getting knocked down because everyone had gone to the coast.

It is still quite quiet.

I live in Granada all year round.

In the month of August most locals go from the city to 2nd homes on the coast or inland.

The city is quieter than the rest of the year.

If you have an air conditioned hotel (and/or pool) it is a good time to visit as there won´t be crowds of people in the tapas bars : )
