My friend and I made a terrible mistake by thinking that we can walk to the hotel from the ticket office of the mournment with our heavy luggages. We were expecting a 5 mins walk (as suggested by a staff at Information) but it turned out to be a 30-min ordeal.
Since our for the mournumnet is the next day, we cannot get through from the main entrance. The website of the hotel suggested that we acess through the 'Puerta de la Justicia'. But the walk unexpectedly involved an upslope of pebble road. We called the hotel and checked if there was another way. They said the pebble road is the only option, or else we have to take a taxi (no where to be found). Later we found that the walk would be much easier if we take the road next to the 'Puerta de la Justicia'.
But despite all that, the room is nice and staff are very friendly. They helped us with our luggages up the stairs (no lift) and are very patient in giving directions to visit the city.
The room has no tv (if it's a concern for you), and the air-con is timed, which made my friend woke up sweating all over.
The next morning we paid a visit to the Alhambra we forgot to checkout before noon (our fault), and we had our luggages kicked out of the room and put in the restaurant (not in service at the time). Luckily we had all our stuff well packed.
