“Great location, good value”
Reviewed 17 July 2007

We just returned from a trip to Granada, Spain. We booked a room at Las Nieves Hotel for 55 € per night about 1 1/2 weeks before our trip on www.booking.com. We chose the hotel based on the price and the good reviews. We found the reviews to be accurate. The hotel was centrally located and we walked to all the major sites, restaurants and bars. The hotel was clean and service at the hotel was very good (although I should note that my husband is a native Spanish speaker). We arrived early so the hotel held our baggage while we had coffee and churros (fried dough) at Café Futbol and then checked us in early (around 12:00). We stayed in two different rooms over three nights and found that there was a range in the size and modernity of the rooms. The first night we were in a room at the back of the hotel that was a bit small, had older facilities and did not have a balcony. The first room was adequate, but when we returned from a side-trip to Nerja, we requested a room with a balcony and were very happy with the new room. The only problem was of our own making as it took us a while to figure out how to turn off the steam in the shower (press to turn on and press again to turn off- do not press odd number of times!). Overall, this hotel was a good value and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks to all the previous reviewers for helping us choose this hotel.

we are both in our 30s and travelled without accomadation because the revievs were to severe in the way you had to walk up and down hill.
we arrived in the centre after a 3 euro bus trip from airport and found within 5 minutes a 3 star hotel at 70 euros the room was huge and perfect in every way. we were in the centre where everything happens and that suited us.
I would recommend las nieves to anyone. tapas bars were are favourite place to hang out in, you will love it R P

The room was ridiculously tiny and lit with a flouescent light more appropriate for surgery. Fittingly, the bed was also very small. I am tall, but not monstorous, and I was still to big for it.

I suppose the room may be viewed as cute with the curtains open, however any bit of cuteness that could be squeezed from the room is offset by the surly staff (who arbitrarily turn the air conditioning on and off).

That said, the place is relatively inexpensive and well-situated. But if those are your concerns, then stay in a nice hostal, which will be about on par with this place for a fraction of the price.

This hotel is a very nice hotel for the price, the room we stayed in had three double windows, very breezy and open.

Fairly recently updated, nice bathroom, good size double room.

The rate was under 100 US dollars, and it was centrally located to the things you want to see in Granada.

We liked that it was close to the Plaza Bib-Rambla, which has some decent restaurants.

It was easy to get to the Alhambra and the area is very nice and has lots of shopping.

One thing we don't like: no internet access, unless you pay outrageous rates in the lobby. Better to go to .com, which is in the Plaza Trinidad and has cheap access.

Like most of the other people who have reviewed this hotel, I thought it was:

Very Clean
Very well located
Very helpful staff

but a bit noisy, due to the stone floors. To be fair, unless you're a really bad sleeper, I wouldn't let it put you off too much as the other plus points make up for the occassional noise.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in October 2006. The hotel is in a good location and you can easily walk to the Alhambra and other areas of interest.

The hotel was clean and we got an excellent rate of 55 Euros a night. However the room lacked charm, we got three single beds in a narrow room (we asked for one bed as we were on our honeymoon!) and our room overlooked a very noisy street. We barely slept all night. Oh, and the shower is so powerful it actually hurt to stand under it.

If you are looking for a budget hotel in a central location, then this is a good bet. However we didn't really find it comfortable and I certainly would not want to spend any length of time here.

My husband and I stayed at the Nieves in June 2006 for 4 nights, booked hotel via Expedia - good price, but note the contract doesn't include breakfast. The hotel is easy to find as its close to the Cathedral and Bib-Rambla square, just off the main shopping area. We found it quiet at night (we had 3rd floor) as there are no bars within the immediate vicinity. Helpful receptionists. Good-sized room, very clean with quiet air-con (only available if you're in the room), efficient shower and soft white towels. On the downside, not much character (the patios on their website are just small gaps like lift shafts, about half-way up inside the hotel!). Didn't have lunch there, but you could, in the very small dining room. Breakfast is in the public bar next door - basic breakfast for which we had to pay, but did have fresh orange juice (but there's a lovely patisserie just opposite). All in all, it was OK as a base but nothing special and, if we went again, we'd stay nearer the Albaicin district. But it wasn't far to walk to the main attractions and its location is great if you want the shops (so many shoes!). Loved Granada and the tapas bars.Airport bus was quick and cheap.
