“A very cheap hotel that offers basic accommodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

I stayed here alone in this hostal for a week and payed a very low price, so I came with not much expectations. First of all this is not a youth hostel, so do not expect any social activity. Besides that there is a lot of noise during the day from washing machines running etc. The hostel is a 20 minute walk from the centre, so you should take this into account (no bus / metro).

The staff is really helpful and kind and have treated me great.

AB pension is a not too bad place for budget travellers. The hotel is away from the station but near the old town. Rooms are quite clean, very tiny and with a spartan and essential furniture and bathsare quite kind and welcoming.

AB pension in Granada is a good option for budget travellers. We stayed in a double room for 2 nights. We had booked it on internet at discount price. The hotel is away from the station; we chose to walk to the station (a good 20-25 minutes!) and thankfully had printed the route before our departure. The streets were deserted for quite some time till mid-morning and the small roads leading to near the hotel were not clean. However, the hotel itself was very clean. And that is what matters the most. Our room was clean. Bed was comfortable and we all had a nice nap after our long, tiring train journey. Although the room was tiny and the furniture was minimal, for the price, it is good. They provide blankets and sheets at no extra cost. The bathrooms and toilets had to be shared, but there were at least 2 of them on the first floor (where we stayed), so we had no trouble using them. It was a busy place, but we had little disturbance. The receptionists were very warm and welcoming and allowed us to use their facilities though we arrived hours before time. They also spoke very good English and gave us helpful info about the tickets and directions.

We roamed the city centre on the first day and also made it to the Alhambra. It is a brisk walk to the city centre/cathedral from this hotel. But, an interesting one. A word of caution: buses operate at a lower frequency on Sundays. We had to take a bus from the main road behind this hotel to the bus station which is far off. It being a Sunday, there were fewer buses and so, we ended up missing our intended connection to the mountains. As I already said, the place around the hotel is deserted most of the time and it is difficult to get all this info, unless you ask the receptionist.

Downsides: there are plenty of fast-foods and hotels and small supermarkets nearby, but none of them was open when we were there; may be it was because they close early in the weekend or what else, I don't know. We had to walk a long way to El Corte Ingles in a mall on the first evening. On the second evening, we managed to find an Italian eatery closer (about 1 km away)!

I would recommend this hotel for its price and its clean rooms and facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms are not very spacious; the bed and furniture eats up most of the space. Still good value for m...

I stayed with two friends. The room had 3 beds, so it was perfect for us. I would not recommend this, however, for a single traveler as there were no lockers and no common area. But it was perfect for us because we were all together in our own room with our own sink. The bathroom was right across the hall. It was all very clean and the staff was friendly. The location was pretty good as well.

Very convenient, very clean, friendly staff. I was in a double room with private bath, and the accommodation was comfortable. The bathroom had a large shower, the bed was comfortable, so recommend it.

Room Tip: double room with private bath was perfect
