First the good things: the street is well known and reasonably easy to find. Parking is available in an adjacent lot for 19E per night. You can walk to the main bus stop area and catch a bus to the Alhambra or other places. And prices are reasonable. The less thrilling parts: the room is modest in size and smelled of smoke though I specifically requested nonsmoking; when I opened the window, there was so much noise outside I really couldn't sleep. It is across the street from an internet cafe/pool hall and when I returned from the Alhambra around midnight there were some fairly unsavory characters about. The staff isn't very knowledgdable about things like public transportation to the Alhambra, indicating that buses ran every five minutes (more like every half hour) and that they would run until closing time (closing time is 12:00 and buses ran until 11:00). Thus, I was stuck alone hoping a taxi would come by. Also, the staff was fairly unfriendly at checkin - making me wait while they did some paperwork without even acknowledging my presence. I would only recommend this hotel if you got a VERY good price.
