“Excellent hotel in a perfect location”
Reviewed 20 October 2010

What a value for a great hotel! I was a little skeptical (despite positive reviews) when I booked this hotel for around $80 US dollars/night. The location on Plaza Nueva is absolutely perfect for exploring Granada, there is a bus stop and a taxi stand here also. The hotel itself was very clean, modern, and quiet. Free wifi was available also. Highly recommend!

Absolutely the best location in Granada. I was hesitant to stay here because it was such good value for money but didn't need to worry- it was the best hotel I've stayed in in Spain. In the middle of everything and a bus to plaza San Nicholas (from where you get amazing views to Alhambra) is right outside the door. Is walking distance from the Alhambra and lots and lots of food.
Loved it.

I'd stayed in Granada twice before and both times I'd stayed in the 3* hotel next door. Although a very good hotel, on the second visit it had been rather noisy, so this time I decided to try the Hotel Macia Plaza instead. I was delighted! I pre-booked the first night for about £33, left very early and went walking for three days in the Sierra Nevada, and then came back to the Macia Plaza and paid about £43, including breakfast (which I hadn't needed the first time). The room was clean, spacious, quiet and well-equipped and I consider the value for money to be excellent.

Great location! Plaza Nuevo - walking distance from all of Granada's sights, shopping and restaurants.
Room was clean, comfortable and nice - which was a pleasant surprise considering how cheap & affordable the room prices were!
And to top it off, the staff were amazing! The guys behind the reception were so friendly and helpful; definitely the best service we had in Spain.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Granada. We loved it.

Great location, walking distance to most tourist/shopping areas (Alcaicería, Albaicin, Calle Calderería Nueva, Cathedral, Royal Chapel...etc). Plenty of restaurants, cafes & pastry shops around the hotel. Convenient to catch buses to Alhambra & Generalife. Rooms are clean & comfortable. Amenities are adequate. Hotel staff are friendly but they seem to be shorthanded & are always busy. We didnt have a problem with that as we do not require much concierge services. Overall, it was a good stay.

This 2* hotel is right on Plaza Nueva which makes it ideally situated to all major sites in Granada. It was excellent value for money (we paid 50 Euros a night) and did not appear like a 2* at all.
When we arrived, the Plaza was full of sketchy looking backpackers. This tainted our initial impression of the location. However, it was the only day we saw that many unsavory looking characters. The Plaza is ideally located to catch busses up to the Alhambra, the Albayzín, and San Nicolás viewpoint. It is ridiculously easy walking distance to the Alcaicería, the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel, and the tapas crawl on Calle Navas.
We had room 305 with two twin beds pushed together. The bed was very comfortable. There was carpet in the room which I don't prefer but it was clean and vacuumed daily. The bathroom had new fixtures, excellent water pressure and a glass door. This did affect some privacy. The air-conditioning was an individually controlled unit and functioned perfectly. I thought that we had gotten an amazing deal until I was talking to a British woman who was staying down the block at a place with a pool for 60 Euros a night. We have never wanted pools more in Europe than on this trip to Spain in the middle of a heat wave. A quick dip at the end of a long day of sightseeing would have been really welcome.
Our favorite place to grab a bite was just around the corner at Calle Almireceros 1 called Bodegas Castaneda. It was unbelievably cheap and excellent local food. It is not to be confused with the big Castaneda that you pass on the way to the "real" one. All drinks in Granada come with a free tapas so it fun to do a tapas crawl but we did spend more than our fair share of time in this one place.

The Macia Plaza is ideally situated at walking distance to the Alhambra & Generalife and the Albaycin.
The room is very nice, seems recently renovated. The staff is very accomodating, the breakfast very good.
