We booked the Ibis Granada on the strength that, a) with Ibis you know you're going to get a modern, functional hotel and b) it was one of the few places where parking was available, as we were on a two week driving trip.
Only real issue we encountered was that, on arrival, and despite clutching my Booking.com reservation confirmation, they had no record of us. Fortunately the hotel was not full and we were swiftly allocated a room of the type we had booked, but we may not have been so lucky. This has since been referred in strong terms to Booking.com, who have assured me that contact has been made with Ibis Granada to ensure this sort of thing does not happen again.
Anyway, the hotel was exactly what we expected, short on character obviously, but it was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was good, even though a bath would have been nice, but we knew that when booking. TV choice was OK and air-con worked fine.
Reading other reviews it does strike me sometimes that some people want their transport and movement around a foreign city to be laid on a plate for them. We found the bus stop for the No. 1 bus with little trouble, simply by asking! The stop is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel and is at one end of that bus line's route. The stop is just by a roundabout on the opposite side of the road from the Lidl store and the bus then turns around and heads back into town (no more than 10 minutes). Bus frequency was good, and best stop in town is probably Gran Via de Colon 12.
Don't know where other reviewers got the 5 Euro charge for internet connection, it was free throughout when we stayed and we picked up Wi-Fi perfectly OK in our room, just had to request password from reception.
Parking was 5 Euros per day, but was very secure.
