“Good hotel, convenient bus stop with a 200m walk to hotel.”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We had never stayed in an IBIS budget hotel before and wanted to try it out to compare it to the Red (regular) Ibis hotel. The two hotels are usually close to each other, and in this case, the Red one could be seen before the Green (Ibis Budget), just about 50m away. I would opt for the budget instead of the Red, viewing as fairly similar in standard at a lower price.

The main differences between the Red and Green are
- bunk style beds for the third person, which I found more comfortable than the window side bed in the Red IBIS. The beds are very comfortable and the double bed is pretty large.
- flooring is either linoleum, or single colour carpet. Red has a veneer floor.
- toilet and shower are separate booths - I found this more useful than the single toilet-shower of the Red IBIS.
- outside sink
- smaller shower towels in the Green, larger ones in the Red.
- no floor mat in the Green (use a towel)
- No phone in the room (use your cell phone)

All have free wifi, comfortable and clean, secure (this one had a number pad instead of a card lock), simply finished, minimal restaurant, breakfast DIY.

Overall I would rate the budget comparable to the regular (Red) Ibis.

Service: Minimalistic but efficient, check in takes 5 min with a reservation. Knowledge fair, they try to be helpful but it is not a full concierge service.

Value: Great value, we paid only Euro30 per room night. No meals.

Sleep: Excellent, it is in a quiet area and beds are comfortable.

Cleanliness: Always clean.

Location: A bit far out of town (45 min bus ride into Alhambra) but it is a direct bus. What is better is that there is also a direct bus to the Autobus station. The bus stop is close fo Carrefour on a side road. We caught it the morning we were taking a bus to Marbella. Taxi fare is only Euro7 from Alhambra so if you are a group of 4, catch a taxi, almost the same price as the bus fare for 4 persons.

Room Tip: Although far from city, a taxi fare ride is relatively low priced.

It's probably the most basic hotel i have ever stayed in, and not the cheapest, but in granada city it is not easy to find special offers! However, it all depends on why you are here. For us this was absolutely perfect, right next to the ronda, excellent signage - as soon as you get close to the city there are signs everywhere, easy free parking, good free wi-fi, the room was enormous, clean, the receptionist friendly. If you are coming to granada to visit the city, this is probably not for you, but if you need to stopover, have a car and don't intend to go into the centre much, this is perfect. And close to the panoramic restaurant, which we loved!

This hotel was good of you had a car and didn't want to pay city tax in Granada. It was on the outskirts and next to motorway so easy to find.

Didn't try breakfast but staff were on hand to help. They did try and up sell things such as 'faster internet' and private parking which was necessary. Hotel overall was nice and clean though.

The only gripe I had was that the room was non smoking and had that sign in the room but there was a used ashtray and it stunk of smoke so clearly not non smoking all the time!
