This is a great base for visiting the Alhambra and (for old punks like me) Placeta Joe Strummer. The former is a short bus trip away (or a moderate walk) and the latter is a short walk. We found all the staff extremely friendly and helpful, especially the multilingual manager who provided a map of the area with all places of interest and bus stops etc. clearly marked (he also explained how to get everywhere and what interesting events and activities were available, in his excellent English).
The room was immaculate, with good, comfortable beds, a nice bathroom with both bath and shower and the room had triple glazing and good aircon and a few English channels available on the TV. WiFi access was free. I had neglected to bring an English adapter to charge my phone, so went to reception, which by now was being manned by an equally friendly woman who went to great lengths to find me the correct adapter.
We went out for the night and returned with a bottle of wine, for which the (you guessed it -very friendly) night-cover man gladly lent us a corkscrew and told us there was no rush to return it. Being English, we drank the wine, then fancied a beer. We were delighted to find that a vending machine in the lobby had chilled lager at shop prices!
Breakfast was excellent, with the aforementioned manager chatting with everyone fluently in their own languages. He asked if anyone wanted anything special. We were quite happy with our egg, toast and coffee, but a German man requested sausages, which the staff then happily cooked for him (even though they were not on the menu).
I would definitely stay here again and heartily recommend it, if in Granada. It is very close to the Alhambra and only a very inexpensive bus ride (and the busses are very frequent and reliable) to anywhere else in this fabulous city!
