Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

A beautiful historic hotel with plenty of charm. Our room was spacious with an amazing view of the city. Service was great and breakfasts were fantastic. Location is very close to the Alhambra Palace *walking distance* but inconvenient for getting to the old town and shops.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

We have stayed here on several occasions and whilst it may not be a 'boutique' hotel it is a charming and lovely hotel reflecting the moorish influences. The terrace is a lovely place to sit and see the city with generous cocktails at hand ! From experience the restaurant is both expensive and not fine dining however the much improved terrace bar menu is fine. The breakfasts are great and a wide variety is on offer.
For us the staff are endlessly helpful and add to what is always a great stay. I never book via the hotel but use easy booking a complete no brainer cost wise ....
It is an absolutely perfect location for exploring the city and the Alhambra Palace

Room Tip: Ask fr a city view

We had a beautiful room overlooking the city, all lit up at night. The staff was warm and welcoming and helped us with everything we needed. Fun to walk through the Alhambra Forest down into the city, a bit harder to walk up! Taxi's are always waiting outside. Right next to the Alhambra itself.

Room Tip: Request a city view.

We were about 60 people at a summer wedding in the hotel. The hotel easily accomodated our party with great food - and the special gin tonics are truly awesome. The bridal couple told us they had nothing they would have wanted to change.

The dining room, lobby area and hallways are made up in the style of the Alhambra palace. This, along with the placement of the hotel right outside the Alhambra overlooking Granada made the stay truly awesome.

Walking to the city centre takes about 10 minutes, and is downhill all the way. Walking back up takes about 20 minutes in the summer heat, but a taxi back to the hotel typically costs 5 euro. This one time, being outside the city centre was a truly good idea.

Nice Hotel but could do with some updating.Rooms are good size but walls are paper thin. the first night the person next door had a phone call and she could have been sitting on the end of our bed! The views are good and it is located about 5 min walk to the Ahlambra Palace. The town is located about a 10 min walk down hill ( which means you either walk up or pay to get the bus). Breakfast and service was average. Compared to other hotels of this standard it was lacking in amenities and service.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your valuable feedback, essential to our quality controls and monitoring. We would refer you that our hotel was built in 1910 and currently enjoys special protections, so the reforms are sometimes slower than normal. However, the rooms were renovated in 2008, and again between 2011 and 2012, including an important technical reform (electricity, air conditioning, elevators, kitchens and technical areas). In 2013 and later in 2014 we continue to make improvements (taps, bathroom screens, carpets, televisions, beds, etc). As our quality of service, we give good faith the hundreds of positive reviews that can be read on TripAdvisor.
We look forward to welcoming you on a future stay. Kind Regards

I guess the most telling question is - "would I go back" - and the answer is, "yes, without a doubt". We booked a junior suite and found that,unlike many hotels, this actually gave us two separate rooms, rather than one larger room, with a sofa, etc. The view from the room was fantastic - looking south, straight down andover the city from on high.

In addition, the hotel is about a four minute walk from the Alhambra! How good is that?

The arrival at the hotel was excellent as well. We pulled up just across the road and two porters ran over. One took the car away to park it and the other dealt with the luggage. Reception staff spoke good English and were very efficient.

The lift (translation - elevator for you Yanks!) was somewhat jerky. It creaks its way up and down and gives a double bounce on arrival; as though it was on a huge elastic band - perhaps it was!

Air conditioning functioned as required - in fact we were too cold on the first night. The bedroom is an inner space and so it blacked-out almost completely - a definite aid to good sleep. have to say that the pillows didn't suit us - either a long thin one, that would be better as a door draught excluder, or a smallish square option, of more conventional thickness - this is the pillow I chose.

Breakfast was a disappointment - but it often is for us in Spain. The normal things were there - the fruit wasvery tasty; but the coffee was too strong - and I LIKE it strong. My wife couldn't drink it without diluting it one to ine with hot water. Scrambled eggs were lacking in seasoning and cooked what we call the American way ( I love you guys really). If the price had been, say, 8 euros, then fine, but this cost us 14 euros each.

The terrace bar and food, on the other hand, was superb. The views delighted and we were kept cool with one of those mechanisms that sprayed us with a fine mist. We loved this terrace.

Staff were unfailingly efficient and helpful. On checking out, a member of staff had already checked our room and rushed up with my phone - what a disaster it would have been if he hadn't caught me .... thank you so much! The porters / concierge loaded the car and off we went.

An excellent hotel in a superb location.

Stay there!
