Hotel Alixares

Reviewed 17 June 2014

A pleasant hotel in a superb location that attracts visitors from across the globe. There's a small covered terrace at the front of the hotel to take pre dinner drinks where we sat each evening. The food was varied and good with a chef on hand who cooked meat and fish to order. Sadly though, he failed to grasp the concept of cook to order as he always had the food already cooked and going cold. We'd rather wait and watch our food being cooked. The prices were comparable if not less than those in the UK for good quality wines. Overall, a pleasant place to stay with extremely helpful reception staff.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the hotel frontage was ideal and peaceful.

A pleasant enough hotel. Perfect for access to the Alhambra. Buffet dinner good value, though perhaps a bit the choices are a bit eclectic. Most rooms either look out on to trees or into lightwells - so no real views. There are three small patios; one by the front door, one by the swimming pool and one on the 4th floor (not open when we stayed) - so nowhere really to sit and enjoy an evening outside.

Excellent location on Alhambra fences, 3 minutes to gates. Easy access by foot and bus to the Cathedral and Rambla Center, The Hotel has an excellent variety for breakfast, but I would like to suggest the buffet dinner. It was so "gusto" that I talked about it the rest of our trip.

Very pleasant hotel with lovely pool not many sunbeds though (wouldn't recommend for children it is fairly deep) Swimming towels supplied. The shower was brill and plenty of hot water. Didn't try the restaurante but the bar prices are reasonable compared to many hotel prices. Friendly reception. If one complaint felt hassled the morning we checked out the maid positioned her trolley outside my door and asked me twice what time I was leaving, this was 9.15 and check out is midday officially. Although it says hotel parking available but not bookable in advance we had to leave the car in the Alhambra car park and it cost 18€ 24 hours.

Room was comfortable, we had the buffet both nights and there was a good selection of food. Breakfast was also good. Not close to town but ideally suited to Alhambra. Tourist hop on hop off bus, and local bus, one minute walk away.

Pool area was very nice.

Staff we felt were very good.

They had parking for our motorbike :-)

This was the last two days of a six day tour with Riviera Travel. Excellent 4 star hotel with friendly staff and good rooms. Very convenient for the Alhambra Palace 5-10 minute downhill walk from the hotel. and 25 minute walk to Granad town centre, again all downhill, take the bus back. Good wifi access even in our fourth floor room.
Buffet restaurant is good value for an evening meal.

Room Tip: There's probably not much to choose between rooms

this is a nice budget hotel in Granada.. it is right across from the Alhambra so that was a plus.. it is like any tourist hotel.. clean appropriate rooms.. decent breakfast ..the best part is the location right across from the alahambra and close to the bus stop that take into town....
