Hotel Mirador Arabeluj
Ranked #53 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Ok how shall I start? Put aside all your assumptions you have about 1 star rated hotels. Forget the steep road you had to drive or walk. You enter at the top floor in a rather inconspicious buikding, but then: after a pleaent welcome and check-in you get a free map with advice where to go you can enjoy the view of the city from high above...
Rooms: not as large as you might like, but akl is in there an dit is all brand spanking new. Marble everywhere, aircon, view to di e for and all that for only 50 Euro a night....
On top of that everything is within walking distance, but not 100 meters, more 5-10 minute walks.
Highly recommend the breakfast: take teh traditional Spanish one: toast with tomato mush and olive oil with a coffee: you can't start your day better!

We stayed 4 night on room 302 with private balcony and we loved it.
Views on the room and bar are beautiful, friendly hostess and helpful.
The only bad side is that it is a bit difficult to get public transport bus goes every 20minutes, taxis are cheap though. Also we asked for a beers on the room and it took a bit more than expected to arrive.
The shower was amazing with a wonderful view from the city.
We asked if we could leave our luggage there after check out as we had ticket to visit Alhambra and they were happy to provide that service for free.

Stayed here in a family room on the 3rd floor (actually minus 3rd floor as reception is top floor) that had a lovely balcony overlooking the old town. Only a short walk downhill into town although with 2 young kids we did get get the bus or a cab back to the hotel at night. Breakfast was good in the morning - we had a 5 euro breakfast inc which we upgraded to full continental for 3 euro. Staff at hotel were friendly and very helpful with directions, maps etc. Would recommend to others especially the family room.

Stunning views over Granada, free parking and 20 minutes walk to the Alhambra. The room we booked was gorgeous, with lots of nice touches, from dried flowers to designer pottery. We were fortunate to have a terrace, which was huge and well furnished. The food was good and the full breakfast well worth 8 euros. Buses into Granada and to the Alhambra run from close by and our cheap, but walking to the cathedral took 20 mins only.

This hotel is located a bit out from the centre (€5 -6 taxi drive) and is about 10 - 15 minutes walk to the Alhambra - a bit of a stretch in the July heat but managable. The location is good if you're driving since it is relatively easy to get to from the motorway and there is free parking outside - a big bonus in Spanish cities! A major selling point is the views and they are good however we found the room size very cramped and would not like to stay here for more that a night or two. We had a 'superior double' and had to move the bed in order to fully open the french doors thats how tight it is! When we did move the bed the floor underneath had clearly not been cleaned in months a case of out of sight out of mind I think. The staff were helpful rather than friendly and breakfast was very basic but considering that there were few if any other options nearby I'd include it in your booking for convenience. The general ambience was quiet (very) and the patio restaurant area had a great view but lacked atmosphere. I'd stay again for the ease of getting there by car and for the parking but would prefer something more central and livelier if I didn't have a car to deal with.

Located on a hill in a residential district there are fantastic views of Granada, the cathedral and part of the Alhambra. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

Our room (202) was downstairs from reception. It was small and a bit cramped but OK for a night or two. The window was located over the bed head which was a bit strange and the view from here was not so good as it had a side aspect. The shower was extremely small and a bit over elaborate with water over head, horizontal and hand held but you were never sure which you were going to get.

The view is best from the terrace and we enjoyed breakfast there. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest cafe if you don't have the hotel breakfast. The 5 euro breakfast was juice, bread and jam and coffee.

It is a an interesting 20 minute downhill walk into the centre and 10 minutes to the Alhambra. There is a very steep uphill section on the way back from town and we caught the no. 30 bus which runs every 10 mins. or so.

We would stay again but be specific on which room we had. It was good value for money.

Room Tip: Request rooms that are not on the corridor to the lift.

We stayed here for three magnificent nights and I can't begin to tell you how nice it is.

It's a small cliff-side hotel that oozes class and taste. The atmosphere in the bar is magical, with haunting music to accompany one of the best views we have ever taken in, truly awe-inspiring. The ambience is perfect and enhanced by the lovely mood lighting that surrounds you.

The service was very friendly, not too close, not too distant, and the room was fantastic with a feeling that every piece of furniture was chosen very carefully, to match the tastefulness of the hotel.

We really enjoyed our short stay here and would recommend it to anyone that likes the finer things in life.

And the beds............Wow!

Room Tip: Go for room 302, massive terrace.
