Stayed here in February for 4 nights with teenage son with the intention of visiting the Alhambra Palace. The hotel was situated very close to the Palace, which could be seen from the balcony of the hotel. The hotel is accessed from the street by a very understated, large wooden door, which reveals a small, Moorish-style central courtyard around which the rooms are situated on 3 floors.
The two rooms we had were comfortable, clean and modern, with our room being at the front of the hotel overlooking the Alhambra and our son's at the back of the hotel with only windows overlooking the internal courtyard. The only criticism I would have about our room would be regarding the en suite shower and toilet, which was along one side of the room. The door to the cubicle was only partially frosted glass and didn't reach to the floor or the ceiling, so consequently privacy was impossible when using the facilities and didn't leave much to the imagination!
There was a bottle of red wine in the room to welcome us on arrival and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Guests are also encouraged to help themselves to mint tea and honey cakes every afternoon in the lobby, if they wish.
The hotel was very situated and we spent our time walking around the narrow, winding streets of the Arab Quarter, discovering various museums and points of interest. Overall, I would recommend it as a tranquil retreat from which to branch out and explore the historic parts of Granada.
