Palacio de Santa Ines
Ranked #9 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2013

I'd requested a twin room and my friend and I were lucky enough to be given a suite which was beautiful - very cool, spacious, clean and the most amazing wooden ceiling. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke good English on reception. The location was great, just a few minutes to everything but still surprisingly quiet. If I ever go back to Granada I'll definitely stay here again (and request a twin room again!!).

This hotel meets the expectations of a stay in Granada and has a nice Spanish feel to it.. Good, quiet location; a couple of minutes from shops, restaurants and attractions; 10 to 15 min walk to Alhambra; nice light breakfast - scrambled eggs cold but that appears to be the norm in Spain; reception and rooms have character (except for the breakfast/tea room). If you are arriving by car, you won't be able to drive right up to the hotel. The hotel is located one building behind the main street on an incline - luggage needs to be carried up about 10 metres of stairs to reach the hotel.

Our room was on the third floor and had a view of the Alhambra (up the mountain). It was spacious and décor matched the character of the hotel; lovely hand painted bathroom basin. Reception very friendly/helpful and fluent in English (This was hard to come by in some areas of Spain).

Tea and coffee served every afternoon. At other times, there is a basic tea/coffee vending machine and also a snacks and cold drinks machine. A small menu was available for room service that seemed to centre around pizza (unsure, as it was in Spanish). Well stocked mini bar in room. Comfortable (firm) bed.

We had emailed the hotel ahead of time to reserve tickets to the Alhambra (much easier and quicker than lining up when you arrive or trying to reserve tickets online). If you do this, please keep in mind that it is just a reservation; you still need to pick up the actual tickets. You can do this at the Alhambra but that means lining up. There are machines and a ticket office in the town and this is more ideal as the lines can be very long at the Alhambra depending on the time of day you are visiting.

One review states that there is no lift in this hotel. I can confirm that there is a lift but it can be easily missed as you need to walk through a courtyard to access it.

We would recommend this hotel; especially if you are after a traditional Spanish atmosphere.

Fabulous hotel in Granada and right in the center of the town within minutes to everything. Staff were great and the rooms are very nicely decorated and very clean. Their afternoon tea and coffee time were a great delight after a long day of sightseeing. Their breakfast buffet is very good too. I would stay in this hotel again. Can't wait to visit Granada again.

This hotel was in a great location, walking distance from Alhambra. A small inconvience that you can't drive up to the hotel, and wish they had stated when reservations were made that you can take a cab and they deduct the cost from your bill but oh well.
The breakfast was very good. The rooms were clean and spacious. The wifi didn't work inside our room but worked in the common area outside the room.

Tucked away near the alhambra, this character hotel was a delight, so we extended our stay as we explored Granada. Staff were friendly and helpful, the room was great fun, breakfast was light but tasty. The place was small enough to be quiet, but very near restaurants and places to see. Before we got there, we were emailed directions as we drove there. They were spot on, and offered easy access, discounted parking downtown. All in all, the hotel does a wonderful job. Just don't forget to book in to see the alhambra itself well in advance..

The hotel itself is a beautiful building..historical, peaceful and romantic.Our room was just right..quiet,comfortable, a good size and with a fantastic view of Alhambra.

The reception staff were friendly and efficient and did a great job in arranging tickets for us for our visit to Alhambra..which is a must on anyones itinerary.

The position of the hotel on the fringes of the Albaicin made it ideal for wandering the streets and soaking up the amazing atmosphere that this part of the city has to offer.

Highly recommended..

We had a room with a view (marvellous Alhambra), cosy.
The location is great, near to all attractions in one of the most beautyful part of Granada (except for parking, please ask before arriving by car how to handle it !)
Easy walk to nice places (to visit of course and to go out),just near the river (very romantic)
Really friendly staff
Otherwise be sure to book a room with a view or superior as it is the only one we tested. Every room is different. There is no lift (in case of heavy luggage but only three floors high).

Room Tip: Quiet rooms. Be sure to book one with a view (top floor) as it is an historic hotel and "barrio...
