the architecture of the hotel duplicates the architecture of the Alhambra. It has a lovely lobby with windows overlooking the view. In the afternoon, it is relaxing to watch the sunset from the terrace while enjoying a drink.
When we went up to our room, we were very pleased to find that we had the same view as the terrace! At first, we had no hot water. It turned out that we had to let the water run long before the hot water would come out. Actually, the hot water was not plentiful during our stay. My friend washed her hair with cold water on our first day. The free wifi in the room was erratic. We kept logging in hoping that we could hold on to the connection. Some hooks in the bathroom could have been handy. However, our stay at the hotel was generally comfortable. It was worth staying at the hotel for the view.
The hotel is walking distance to the Alhambra. The day we arrived, we got our tickets from the machines outside a gift shop. This is not where the entrance to the Palaces is. Nor the Generalife. You have to go to the `justicia gate. It was nice to have tickets in hand already when we visited the following day.
To go to town, we rode on the bus 30 and 32 which stops right in front of the hotel. This is how we got to the Cathedral and Capilla Real. To go to the Monasterio in Cartuja, we rode on the number 8 bus on Grand Via.
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast which included hot dishes. Also, cava seems to be a standard at good hotels. I do like this, and add orange juice to my cava. It was a generous breakfast and we liked the chorizos with our scrambled eggs.
Altogether, a convenient and lovely hotel.
