Reviewed 14 March 2013

We booked this hotel 24 hours in advance and were a little nervous! All I can say there is nothing to be nervous about with this hotel It is an absolutely charming place in a great location at a great price.

The charm of this hotel starts once you arrive in the city and use the directions provided by the hotel. As with many European cities there is an area that does not permit vehicle traffic during the day and this hotel is located in this area. The fun thing about staying at this hotel is that you are permitted to drive into the "no vehicle traffic" area of the city. They open the barriers and you need to drive through all the walking tourist and extremely narrow roads. Once you arrive at the hotel they have complimentary parking available at the front door.

To gain access to the hotel you need to ring the door bell and be let in. You walk in the front door and you are in a beautiful charming covered courtyard.

Yes the rooms are on the smaller side but it is a European hotel in a 15th century building. As mentioned by another traveler the noise can carry and if you are close to the elevator you hear it each time it is used. If you are on the front side of the building there is a great view of the Alhambra.

The hotel location is great to walk up to the Alhambra if you use the back stairwell/entrance.

We found this small and comfortable hotel to be in a great location for visiting the Alhambra. We took a tour that was booked for us right from the hotel. Due to the fact the streets are so narrow we walked about 10min to get to the tour.
The hotels beds were very comfortable. The reception was always helpful. The bonus - there is parking right outside the door.

Having stayed in one 4,and one 5 star hotel on this particular trip to Spain, this last minute substitute for our last 5 star hotel in Granada made us feel a little apprehensive. We need not have worried! This is a real gem of a hotel, unpretentious but absolutely charming. Beautifully restored with original materials, it has great character. Staff were very helpful without being pushy. Breakfast was very enjoyable and our room had lovely views over the Alhambra.
Stray dogs in this part of Granada made it difficult to sleep on one night, but that was not an issue with this hotel. All in all, a lovely experience!

Strongly recommended. Upon arrival, Wilfredo (please forgive me if I got the name wrong) helped us with our luggage, parked our car in the narrow spot reserved for us, and assisted us in numerous ways large and small. He was a generous, attentive and friendly host. The hotel accommodations are lovely, the beds were firm, the rooms large and clean, They sent us to Flamenco nearby and made sure we were treated well and seated well. They sent us to vegetarian food nearby at Paprika, and that was very successful as well. It is walking distance to the Alhambra. Frommer's liked this place, and I have learned to trust their recommendations. The free parking is a good deal. The hotel was visible from the Alhambra, and vice versa. Driving from Seville to Granada via the scenic route took us to Lucena and we only reached Granada after dark. Finding and driving to the hotel without a cellphone or GPS was a bit of a challenge, but we made it. Best to print out directions via google maps or the equivalent. And to stop and ask the taxi drivers. The hotel directions are NOT very good if you don't know the city a bit or if you miss a turn. Which we did.

Stayed here in Feb for 2 nights. It's in the old part of town and quite charming but dead at night (in February). Getting here by car is very easy if you follow and trust the fantastic and very specific directions from the hotel. Having parking in Granada made life much easier for sure - don't under estimate this.

The hotel is nice, old world, and quiet. The rooms are ok with an average bed, high ceilings and nice bathroom. Small though and we paid for the expensive one. The staff were very nice too. The downside is that it is very very noisy - you hear everything. We weren't able to sleep through either night thanks to the notice (the people above deciding to have some fun at 4am!). If this is an issue - don't stay here. It definitely overpriced too - we were disappointed at what we got for the money.

The location is very quiet and dead at night. It feels a little sketchy but not too bad. Expect to be hassled for money constantly. My advice is to walk down to the roads off Calle Gran Via de Colon - such a wonderful area and so much fun to hang out. To get back to the hotel - you can take an electric bus up the hill if you feel lazy. Granada is a wonderful city at night - a real pleasure to be there.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay above the reception or front door area!

We booked two rooms for family vacations, an external room and the suite. It is indeed difficult to find the hotel and we arrived at night with some difficulties. But the location is perfect, as it is in a very charming and convenient place at roughly the same distance from the places that we wanted to cover, beautiful Albaicin and magical Alhambra, 20 minutes walking. Parking was conveniently in front of the hotel, a big plus in my view. The hotel is a refurbished XV century house and the least that you can say it is that is wonderful, with its central patio and ornate ceilings. Very friendly and helpful staff. free wifi that worked perfectly well. Good restaurants and bar in the neighborhood. My only complain would be breakfast that was expensive and much more limited in choices that other meals that we had at other hotels. Definitely will go back if I have the chance.

Room Tip: choose the suite! It was clearly one of the most wonderful rooms that we have stayed, with its view...
