We spent two blissful nights in this historic building in the heart of La Alhambra. Yes, it's costly compared to other hotels but you really do get what you pay for - stunning location, serenity (away from the gaggles of tourists), and great service. The staff know what they're doing and they do it well. We stayed in room 303 (not above the kitchen/restaurant) with a lovely view across a small decorative pool, towards Siete Suelos. The food was, overall, good though that in the restaurant was better than the cafeteria (as you'd expect given the price differential). I'm gluten-free and the restaurant offers a (limited) gluten-free menu but the chef happily adapted a dish of the standard menu for me. Breakfast was fabulous - extensive and offering gluten-free bread and pastries - and not rushed at all; we had chance to do an early morning visit to the Palace before returning for breakfast! We had a car, garaged on site for the duration; we walked into Granada town (a friendly city) and caught the Alhambra bus back up the hill to the parador for a cheap 1euro 20cents. We had wanted to stay here for many years - cost had previously discouraged it - and we are so happy with the experience we had, we'd highly recommend it.

The hotel is in the Alhambra, 12th century monastery. The rooms are modern, ours overlooked the generalife, and the meals outstanding.
Don't forget to book your visit to the Nasrid palaces and Generalife gardens, as these are not included in the accommodation.

Pros: exquisite location, if you want to be part of it, that is where you should stay ! Right between Alhambra and Generalife (gardens) with views to die for. Fantastic landscaping: gardens are just perfect. Restaurant: simply the best terrace location and food was delicious. Very high level of refinement for the decoration. Impeccably clean.

Cons: rooms a bit small and, honestly, simply decorated. Staff: well... "O.K." would be the most we could say: not terribly friendly, it shows that this is a government run institution...also, some friends of us left a message for us at the Paradore one day...teh staff gave it to us when we checked out.... Maybe a bit more english from the restaurant staff, so we do not have to get the manager for translation. Lighting for the terrace is a bit too bright and should be reviewed. Location far away from the city: have to walk up and down the hill quite often. Alternatively: cab or bus. No pool, so for those 40C days...

Historically speaking, the best you can get, so if this is what you want, you will probably find that the value is acceptable.

This hotel is housed in a wonderful building, and it in a dream location for your trip to the Alhambra, but I'm not sure that it is the best place to stay for a visit to Granada. After much deliberation about the price we booked a 2 night stay, which we very much enjoyed. Our room was surprisingly modern but very spacious and comfortable for three people. While there was no balcony we had 2 windows with 2 pleasant garden outlooks. The Parador chain is in the process of adding excellent signage around the hotel about its history, and excavating on the site of a moorish bath house near the dining room. We were able to return to the hotel to have drinks and cool off several times during the day we visited the Alhambra. Service from the staff and the hotel breakfast were both excellent. The hotel does, however, feel a bit removed from the rest of the town and, because of the price, we limited our stay in Granada to two nights. If I was planning the trip again I would probably still stay at the Parador for the purposes of Alhambra immersion, but I would also book somewhere down the hill for a couple more nights to get involved in the town, which was very interesting and vibrant.

I am not sure what the reviewer from New York was expecting but if they wanted the gushing service characteristic of this standard of US hotels, then staying at a Parador was not right for them. The restaurant meals were excellent, European sized portions! The staff were very pleasant and accommodating - the front desk staff spoke excellent English and the rest of the staff had a smattering but surely we should be attempting to speak Spanish, after all we are their guests. The rooms are comfortably and simply furnished, small but perfectly formed. This building is centuries old and those fountains have been running for most of that time - I don't think they need switching off at night. We had the most fabulous views from our room over the Generalife and it was so peaceful. Breakfast on the terrace looking at that view with the fountain gently playing - perfect start to the day. It is an expensive place to stay, probably the most expensive of the Paradors but if you go knowing and expecting that, you'll have a great time.
One tip - if you book your visit to the Nasrid Palaces for first thing in the morning (8:30am), they are very peaceful and evocative. We visited the Palaces then the fortress, then went back to the hotel for breakfast (it goes on until 11am) before going over to the Generalife. Very civilised
