Granada was a great city, and obviosly the Alhambara is the highlight. Well worth doing is the daily 2 hour walking tour which takes in the other parts including the Albacin, were you can get a taste of the Arabic souk culture, you can find details of this at the tourist office or website, and at 10 euros each is very good value. There is a huge variety of very attractive looking restaurants, but such is the genorosity of the numerous Tapas bar owners that you may never need to have a meal, these bars were very busy even on a monday evening. For just 2 euros you can get glass of wine and a tapas.
The Melia hotel was booked through the companys website, it is always worth checking out company websites rather then agents as in my experience you always get what you ask for. They had a deal on for January of just 28 pounds per room per night, we requested a quiet room on a higher floor and that is exactly what we got. The room was smart and efficent in a business style, and the bathroom was large with everything you could want.
The hotel seemed to cater for business people mostly and the decor again was of a high international standard, one of its best points was the central location, a step away from a main shopping thoroughfare, for those driving like myself there is a multi storey car park adjacent to the hotel, the hotel was very easy to find comming in from the south of the city. The city has a poulation of 240,000 with 80,000 being students which keeps the prices of food and drink down making Granada one of Spains most affordable cities.

Family of 4 stayed here in Jan 2008 for 2 nights on an internet deal from Melia. Previously stayed at the chain's Gran Fenix in Madrid.

Followed ViaMichelin website directions and found Hotel relatively easy, however, a potential nightmare without directions.
1st job was to drop off car at the Rail Station so have no comment about parking. Concierge gave good directions to Station which we followed perfectly until alomost the end. Noted that when the staff deliberated over directions they seemed to raise the fact that all the streets (being a tourist zone) are under close circuit TV and you can get booked if you just driving around after getting to the Hotel. Your number plate is targetted.

This is a tourist hotel and doesn't try to be anything different. Approached on that basis you probably will find it good value.
One of the 2 rooms was not very good. Bathroom was best described as a cubicle ensuite with a vanity the size of 1 single basin. Noise from hallway and lifts was exceptional. Big drawback was the Hotel heating which you couldn't seem to turn down or off. Our window faced an airshaft (which I personally think allows for a quieter night) so we left the window open - until someone checked in at around 1.30am and proceeded to yell the house down.

Ate in Hotel Restaurant both nights and had a great Paella. Other meals were well received. Breakfast was excellent. Internet connection was reasonable. Staff were excellent.

Reason for going to Granada is the same for most - La Alhambra. Can't find much to favourably offer Granada in comparison to Segovia, Avila, Toledo etc other than Alhambra. Dropping the car off and getting lost and walking back to hotel enabled me to see other parts of the town. It ain't pretty. Although night time and lighting hides its uglier side. On check out we had seen enough of Granada and were reasonably happy to be leaving.

Based on the deal we got and a walk past some of the other hotels would lead me to recommend this Hotel to other families - only if you get it on a good deal. If you don't like the first room you get ask for another (assuming they're not booked out).

Had coffee and tea break at the Parador (undergoing rebuild/renovations). It looked to be the benchmark for this town.

We got this hotel because Granada was mostly filled over the Christmas
-New Year's Holiday. The management is consistently unhelpful. They would not even give us a receipt for our stay since we booked online. They did not even have a local tourist brochure. Even for a four-star hotel, the beds were uncomfortable and the TV worked poorly. But the worst was the very noisy plumbing. The toilet kept going for a least 15 minutes every flush. We compare this chain to NH, which was much superior, at least in both Cartagena and Valencia.

Stayed at the Melia Granada on a short business trip in October 07. The staff was very nice. I got a room on the executive floor (no extra costs) with an nice and spacious balcony from where you could see the Sierra Nevada. The rooms are not too big, but conveniently designed, so nothing to complain about. The location of the hotel is great. Everything is accessible within walking distance. When I was late to catch up my flight on the day I was leaving, the staff was very helpful to arrange a taxi to reach the airport in time. The price for value ratio is still OK. Well, ... like other travellors ... I also enjoyed the breakfast at the Melia Granada. Many bars and dining options are also nearby. This business trip turned into kind of a vacation.

Granada is a beautiful town. Most famous for the Alhambra palace, but also the town itself is pretty, with nice shops, restaurants and cafes, especially nice in the evening.

The hotel is fairly central in the city, and about a 30 minute walk to the Alhambra. It is not the nicest Melia I’ve been to, but it’s clean, central and convenient. The front desk is a little chaotic (small and not enough staff).

Tip on the Alhambra: reserve tickets online before going! They only have limited tickets they sell each day, and weekends/summer especially can get sold out days before hand.
