My wife and I did a two day excursion in Granada. This was during - and completely unrelated - the town's Easter-week festivities. The main street was closed for through traffic due to the processions which occurred nightly. This did not negatively impact our stay at all.
We checked in with the rudest host I have ever come across. It appeared that he wanted little to do with speaking to us, pushed us along with no line behind us, and was just extremely unpleasant. For a place that advertises it's 4-Star Trip Advisor rating, maybe the person could have been a bit more welcoming to tourists.
The room was basic, nothing special. The bed was very low to the floor - I found that very odd. The toilet did not look like it had been cleaned (which is kind of disgusting). My wife had lost an earring in the room one day before breakfast. I had went back to the room and started checking the floor. I found more than I could handle (Advil tablets which we did not use, bugs crawling around, very disgusting things). All that had to be done was to run a vacuum - not sure why this was such a difficult thing to do.
Another issue is that the hotel had two elevators. It just isn't enough and we routinely had to wait 10+ minutes for an empty one to become available. The doors also closed if anyone inside the elevator even flinched. It was extremely difficult to handle during the high volume times during the day.
If we did more than two short nights of our vacation here, I would have been very disappointed.
Positives about the hotel are the location to a major strip of cafe's, the bar in the hotel was probably the best I have ever seen and stayed open past 1am (with very attentive serves), and the breakfast setup was pretty impressive.
Unfortunately, I could not get past the rudeness of the employee who checked us in or the disgusting things I found within the room.
