“Good hotel across the street from the Alhambra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2009

Nicely appointed facility with comfortable, modern rooms and a friendly staff. Many tour busses stop here so the lobby is frequently very busy. It is at the Alhambra and somewhat detached from Granada that can be reached easily by bus. Driving in Granada is a nightmare because of narrow one way streets, lots of street construction. and streets are very poorly marked. A GPS in Granada (as in most Spanish cities) is absolutely a must.

We stayed three nights at the hotel and found it very enjoyable. Staff was very helpful and could speak good English if required. Room was adequate size, slightly larger then we found in other Spanish hotels. The bathroom though tight, had a great shower/jet tub. Which was enjoyable after all of the walking you'll do seeing the Alhambra and Granada. Restuarant had a very good breakfast and fare was standard for most hotels. Great location for visiting the Alhambra. Several minutes from the entrance. The bus stop that takes you into the city or to the Albacin is just a two minute walk downhill as well. If you're there for multiple days buy the multi-pass for the bus. Though you can walk down the hill to the town, walking up is for the young of heart (and legs) so you'll be using the bus and thankful for the location. We had a room that faced the Alhambra and view was quite nice. Relatively quiet, though most travelers stay for the Alhambra location so it is not a night scene noisy place. The bar on the first floor enjoys a good crowd and the bartenders are friendly and is a great experience. Parking is available at the Alhambra parking lot for a discount rate and is directly across the street from the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for anyone wnating a location near the Alhambra.

Loved our stay at Hotel Guadalupe, mainly because of the room given which had a huge terrace overlooking the Alhambra [the main reason to visit Granada]. When we visited 'downtown' were very glad to be staying near Alhambra, in fact chose to go back there to eat as restaurant better quality & value.There is a regular mini bus service which also took us into the old moorish quarter 'Albayzin' , so the location was very convenient, not only for visiting the Alhambra but also the rest of Granada. But it was the fabulous terrace [& room/bathroom] that made our stay here so enjoyable. Very reasonably priced too.

The location for visiting the Alhambra can't be better. Staff was very friendly and helpfull and the restaurant was outstanding! Going to the city center you walk down for 10 minutes. Walking back is a rather steep climb. However there is a minibus service (every 5 minutes) almost in front of the hotel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2009

Stayed at hotel Guadalupe one night in December 2008 while visiting Alhambra.

ROOM
We stayed in a standard double room. The room was nicely decorated, and there were a mini-bar as well as a small flat screen TV (only one English tv-channel thoug – CNN). The bed was nice though it was a bit hard, but I recon this is standard in Spain after haven stayed at several hotels having the same experience.

LOCATION
The location is excellent when visiting Alhambra. There is 50 meters to the main entrance, so you can visit early in the day when it is very beautiful with the sun rising. And you will avoid the climb up the mountain for the visit.

If you visit Granada, you might want to find a hotel in the city it self though, the walk up the hill is tough.

SERVICES
There were a PC with free internet in the lobby, which was working fine. The breakfast (at 10 EUR incl. tax) ok but no more, there is definitely room for improvements here.

Check-in and check-out was fast. The hotel uses the Alhambra parking area (area 1 which is closest to the entrance). The price is 13 EUR/24h with a coupon from the hotel. You can enter the parking space on arrival (just take a ticket at the entrance), and when you leave you need to validate the ticket in the manual office showing a cupon from the hotel.

All-in-all we found the hotel to be a good option when visiting Alhambra only. We payed 50 EUR/night which was a fair price for this hotel.

This hotel is basic, clean, friendly, but mostly it is 50meters from the Alhambra.
Thats it, why else do we go to Granada?
Park in the Alhambra car park at reduced rates from the hotel.
Get a bus to see the other sights down town from the car park in front of the hotel. Decent bar food available in the hotel from friendly staff but eat down town, nowhere suitable close to the hotel. Taxi back was only 7 euro.
Would go back, but not soon, the q's for the Alhambra have to be seen to be believed, or go at night, half the price but half the value.

  • Liked — close to Alhambra
  • Disliked — Lack of good dining facilities in hotel or local area. Good enough bar snacks though.
