This beautiful and comfortable hotel is centrally located and very close to the Cathedral. Make sure you have warm clothes if visiting during autumn/ winter. Our room overlooked the beautiful internal courtyard and was comfortable. The Hotel has done a good job in preserving the historic property and in adding modern comforts. One moves from new to antique areas without really noticing the change.
Reception staff were excellent and very helpful. We drove to Granada and struggled to find the hotel despite its central location and us having a sat nav. Exterior signage was not a strong point but once we had parked outside, reception staff came to the car to assist and then parked the car for us for the duration of our stay.
To appreciate Granada a car is not required but a good pair of walking shoes will stand you in good stead. The hotel organised a tour guide for our visit to the Alhambra and that was a good investment as the guide was very knowledgeable. We also skipped all the queues at Alhambra! It is essential to book tickets on line before your visit. The reception staff are then able to direct you to a local ATM to print out the tickets.
The hotel restaurant is exceptional. The food is to die for and superbly presented. Again, service was excellent. We will return.
