I could not fault this hotel in any respect .
The location was right in the centre where you want to be . Our GPS took us through the one way road system up to about 50 metres from the hotel , but not to the door . The hotel is tucked round a corner on a small side street , so we just stopped the car and took a short walk around the area and found it .
Parking is underground below the hotel and it is very tight , but you basically park the car and forget about it till you leave Granada as everything is accessible on foot or by bus .
The hotel room rates are very reasonable indeed , but the parking is Euro 22 per day .
The hotel is relatively new with a modern style , and it was immaculately clean is all areas all the time . I requested a room on an upper floor to avoid city / street noise , and was allocated a room on the top floor . The room was compact , modern , clean , etc with a comfortable bed , quiet air con , TV with a couple of English channels , safe , fridge , free WiFi which worked fine . We did have to ask for a couple of extra pillows .
The room overlooked a small square at the back of the hotel where there is a couple of restaurants , and we had a small juliet balcony where you could watch the world go by . But once you closed the double glazed patio doors , the room was silent and we slept very well.
Th staff were very friendly and helped with directions and advice whenever we needed help. We did not use the hotel for breakfast or dinner , but the breakfast options looked ok .
My big recommendation is to buy a Bono Plus card on www.bonoturistico.cajagranada.es It costs about Euro 35 and gives you access to all of the Alhambra , Cathedrals , Monastries for free , hop on hop off bus tour , and you get 9 free bus trips which enables you to get around and about without a car . Its valid for 5 days but we did everything in 3 days .
We had a fantastic time in busy Granada , and the Monjas Del Carme hotel was just perfect for us .
