The hotel is in the perfect location if you are going to visit The Alhambra as the entrance is a few minutes walk from the hotel. You can park in the Alhambra car park which is opposite the hotel. The bedrooms at the front of the hotel look out over the car park which doesn't sound very nice but it's screened by trees and means that the hotel is very quiet in the evenings and overnight.
Our room wasn't very big but it was big enough for our needs and was nice and clean. The bed linen was really soft and the bed was comfortable. (Actually - beds - the double was two singles pushed together.)
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We had breakfast in the hotel on our second morning but wouldn't really recommend it as none of the buffet was stuff you'd go back for second helpings of!
It takes about 15 minutes to stroll down into Granada. We didn't try to walk back up again. The bus fare is 1.2euros and the buses are frequent so we didn't attempt the hill climb.
I think The Guadalupe represented very good value for money. You don't get all the luxuries of a parador but neither do you pay the same kind of rate. If you want somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep after a long day's sightseeing, and you don't want to spend too much, book this hotel.
