“Great location and nice hotel.”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Spain. My first thought is that I am really glad we picked this location. It is right by the Alhambra, but more importatly away from the busy city center. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk downhill to the city, and you can easily take a bus either way. The rooms are basic and functional, and yes, the plumbing is a bit loud. I found the breakfast to be fine. It was the begininng of the trip, and I don't like to overeat, but there was a variety, and I could have tried even more. Once you go down to the city, you will appreciate the location a bit away from the noise. This was our first night, so staying up late wasn't going to happen, but if that is your thing, you may want closer to town. For us, it worked out fine, and was easy for the taxi to get to.

I wanted to treat my in-laws to a visit to the Alhambra to celebrate her birthday and celebrate we did! A friend had emailed us tips on where to go and what to see so we were well prepared with pre-booked tickets to the Alhambra and a mission to see everything else!

The hotel is superbly positioned for a sightseeing tour as the most important place to visit is the Alhambra. I'm horrified by the comments below from someone saying that it's not worth it - it so is! A beautiful piece of history and culture - my only complaint is that we needed more time there!

Although there is no parking at the hotel we were told that you could pay 15 euros per day to park at the Alhambra or head to the cemetery carpark which was a little further away and park there for free (although no security). This wasn't a problem as he had been pre-warned when we made the booking. In any case, I wanted to stay somewhere we could abandon the car and then walk everywhere and the Hotel Guadalupe ticked those boxes perfectly.

The lady behind reception when we checked in was super friendly and helpful. We spoke to her in Spanish but heard others testing her English and French skills which were excellent. She advised us on buses and walking options and told us everything we needed to know about the hotel.

Our room was one of the renovated ones on the third floor. Beautifully furnished inside and very comfortable. Not terribly sound proof but it didn't cause us to lose any sleep. More than adequate for our purposes.

We used the restaurant for breakfast only and that's my only gripe about this hotel. The breakfast was fine with a good selection of juices, fruit meats, cheese, cereals, eggs, bacon etc (but no churros!). I would say there was something for everyone. But while we were still there the waiters started moving furniture around to prepare for lunch (half an hour before breakfast was due to finish so we weren't dilly dallying). I wouldn't have minded so much but they were dragging the furniture around the room and that was far too noisy for a relaxing Sunday morning!

There is a great bus service from outside the hotel into the town centre and then you can take another bus up to the Albaycin and it's all very straight forward at 1.20 euros per journey. Also a hop on hop off tourist bus stops in the Alhambra carpark just a couple of minutes' walk from the hotel's front door. We preferred to walk into the centre and found it to be quite entertaining and jolly. There were plenty of people milling around and we felt very safe, even when we returned after dinner late at night. It takes about ten minutes to walk down the hill into the town and fifteen to get up to the Albaycin. On the way down, half is through a lovely tree covered park and the rest through interesting streets with shops and restaurants.

We found Granada to be a great city, full of charming people who were only to happy to help us, chat to us, serve us and smile at us! We would definitely recommend a trip there to our friends.

Room Tip: I read that higher rooms were nicer but to be honest the unrenovated rooms looked very pretty too. P...

Family run hotel which is quite small but we certainly had a lovely room. Breakfast was very good. super position for visiting Alhambra. Delightful 20 minute downhill walk into town through trees, plus there is a frequent (every 10 mins) minibus service taking your to /from town centre for €1.20. Staff were very helpful especially when we wanted to watch the Grand Prix. Don't bring a car as I overheard the receptionist telling someone it costs €15 a day to park in one of the official Alhambra car parks, as the hotel has no parking. Hotel has no grounds but is quite close to a gorgeous gardens carmen de Los martires which is free to visit and delightfully tranquil, after the hustle of the Alhambra. We could not get wifi in our room, but free wifi in the reception/bar/lounge. No restaurants around hotel for eating In the evening, but both bar snacks and hotel restaurant very reasonable and nice. Could clearly hear next room's shower (but luckily that was all the plumbing noise we shared). Only watch point would be that the safety deposit boxes are in reception and they do not have enough to cover their 30 odd rooms, so when we asked for a box, she told us she would not charge us as it was the last one and if anyone else wanted one we would have to share (hence not charging). We did not find this acceptable so asked to pay for 4 euros for two nights to ensure security. Suggestion to hotel- increase number of boxes or better still, instal them in the rooms.

Room Tip: Room 205 was lovely, double aspect to front, higher floor rooms at front would be quieter, and have...

Mostly good this one, and tending positive. Well-priced and certainly value-for-money. Beyond that, it primarily depends on the focus of your visit to Granada.

In my case, it was research on the Alhambra and for this purpose the Guadulupe was spot-on: literally across the road from the monument. On a previous visit, I had stayed downtown, tickets were not available on-line and the story of the whole queueing/viewing experience has made it to many a dinner-time table. So location, if this is your aim, is terrific. You can also easily access the old area of Granada - the Albaycin - either by buses 30 and 31 or simply by entering the Cuestra de los Chinos via Mimbre Restaurant and walking the path over which Boabdil is said to have escaped on horseback. Takes 20 minutes but the cobbles are very hard on the feet...wear comfy shoes.

Room okay: clean, adequate in all respects, and reception very helpful.

It was the restaurant/room service that let this hotel down for me. No tea/coffee in the room once again and difficult to obtain via room service (which appeared to be either multi-functional or stretched), so I ended up ordering it in the bar and taking it up myself. Restaurant a little to the left of arrogant, overpriced with an unloved offering, so most nights I ended up in the Italian restaurant a few doors up the road.

With a smile and/or chef in the restaurant, it could have been so much better.

Hotel bedroom was clean . . . and near the Alhambra's entrance (which, by the way, pre book tickets). The plumbing was noisy i.e. anyone flushing a toilet/washing hands nearby, sounded like Niagra Falls flowing through. Breakfast was basic . . . their ideas of fresh fruit was out the tin or a selection in a basket for you to take/peel/dice. As for the juice . . . in a region that has plenty of oranges . . . very disappointing. And at night when, after a long day you would like a drink, bar was closed (excuse - busy in the restaurant). It is near a car park . . . good if you come by car. If you do stay, when you leave, check the bill.

I am an elderly experienced world traveler who does a lot of research before a trip and who is quite picky but not overly so.
This hotel is modern, clean, comfortable, friendly, and generally flawless, and is across the street from the alhambra, and next to the hotel from which the early morning private guided tours of the alhambra depart (pay the money and reserve one of these tours via the alhambra's web site - SUPER). the breakfast buffet was very good and cheap - for southern spain (8 euro). my single room was the smallest i think i have ever been in, but it was cozy and had lots of amenities and was charming, and on the top floor so had a balcony with a view of an olive grove and the actual alhambra. i think the doubole rooms are a good bit bigger. there is the #30 city bus every few minutes into downtown granada, or you can walk downhill through the park, or over the hill via the fantastic alhambra palace hotel with their spectacular terrace for drinks/snacks. so it's far from downtown location was not the problem i thought it might be. i would stay here again.

Room Tip: get a top floor room near the end of the hall as the noise in the hallways can be heard.

We asked for room 412 (with the terrace overlooking the Alhambra). Fantastic view! In fact the view was so great and having a terrace to enjoyable we chose to ignore a terrible sewer smell that was in the bathroom.(not something we would normally do) Just kept the fan on and kept the door shut.The room was fairly dated and tired but clean.
Parking is in the Alhambra parking lot across the street and worth every penny given that parking is very tricky throughout Spain.Make sure you obtain decent driving directions from the hotel and stay on the ronda sur, following finally the Alhambra signs. Just email the hotel and tell them where you are driving in from.
The staff were very helpful.
The location was fine... a bus stop just across the street to go into town, drops you off just steps from the hotel (Bus # 30) Walking into the town was also manageable, however we did not want to be there late in the evening.
Would recommend it for those wishing to focus on the Alhambra.

Room Tip: Get room 412 if at all possible. The sewer smell might have been caused by the rains that were never...
