Nicely located at the top of a hill above the city center, we found the Hotel G. a comfortable little perch for three nights from which to stage our exploration of the Alhambra grounds next door and Granada below. We asked, and found there were two rooms on the 4th floor with ample terraces. Good call; turned our smallish standard double into a junior suite with a balcony room under poplar trees and lush greenery available to us to enjoy the sunset or stars all times of day and night. Definitely ask for a 4th floor terrace room.
The hotel location is great and a value being so close to the world heritage site. We found it easy to amble over to the Alhambra grounds any time of day, and there was a nice selection of restaurants and shops in the cluster of things at the top of the hill which provided all sorts of conveniences. Some might find the hubbub of activity at the site entrance there a little off-putting, but we did not find it too noisy or overrun but rather well organized and green, and a great opportunity for people watching from our terrace vantage in the afternoon. In any case, most everyone retreats down the hill into Granada by dinner time to leaves our corner of the world quiet and leafy and totally strollable. Also: olive orchards right behind the hotel can be reached from a stairway a little down the street and make for great sunset walks.
