Puerta de Las Granadas
Ranked #17 of 124 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2010

You walk out the front door of hotel, turn right, and continue on the same street up a hill, past only a block or two of commercial establishments, before you encounter the perimeter of the Alhambra grounds, from which it's about a 15-minute walk to the visitors' entrance. The front desk staff speak excellent English and are surpassingly helpful (especially the excellent Alexandra). They will likely volunteer to arrange your Alhambra tickets in advance and can also explain where to leave your rental car rather than venture into the old quarter of Granada with it. (There is no parking right at the hotel.) There are generally two computers to use in a lounge area for free internet access (and the most blazing WiFi speeds we encountered anywhere in Spain), but one of the desktops was absent/broken when we were there. The rooms are okay but not a place you want to spend a lot of time - everything is clean but very simple, and the pillows are none too cushy. The breakfast (not included - about 8 or 9 euros/person when we were there) is a bit perfunctory - coffee simmering on a hot plate, some decidedly industrial pastries, some cheese, ham, and fruit, and yogurt and plain-ish cereal. It would take some work and tolerance to really fuel up for a good part of the day with that spread, but it is certainly an acceptable way to grab a quick bite. Despite the limitations of the rooms and breakfast, I would recommend this to anyone not looking for a four-star experience but wanting proximity to the Alhambra, a decent room, and helpful staff. (The four-bullet rating here is NOT intended to be parallel to a four-star rating; this is more like a two-star hotel except for the excellent front desk folks.) No doorman, and a very tiny elevator that three humans or suitcases can ride in at once.

My mom and I stayed at the Puerta de las Granadas for one night on our 10 day trip through Spain. This was an excellent hotel at an extremely good value. I was a little nervous about the room size based on previous reviews (seeing as I was booking the cheapest room). However, upon arrival, we were up-graded to a more expensive double room, which turned out to be a pretty decent size. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect right off of Plaza Nuevo. Also, i found it very quite and did not have any problems with noise. We were just a 20 minute walk to the Alhambra entrance and a 10 min walk to the Albayzin. Also located right around the corner are some excellent restaurants and shops. The staff was extremely helpful in giving us advice on where to go. They even booked us a fantastic Flamenco show in the caves for us. Everyone we dealt with spoke excellent english. They even had 2 computers with free internet for guests to use. I would definitely recommend staying here and for the location and service the price cannot be beat.

This was an excellent hotel and I cant fault it. In November, prices are much lower, so we got a lovely double en-suite for €54. Rooms are a little small, but thats not an issue. They are spotless, bright and very comfortable. The shower was amazing!!! We stayed in room 305.

The hotel also offers free WIFI which is great, and it will help with parking - they have agreements with some of the public car parks which allows you to park at discounted rates. Also they provide a buffet-style breakfast for an addtional cast (something like €7).

The hotel is perfectly located, with all the sites just minutes away by foot.

Finally, the staff there were incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke several languages.

We stayed here for two nights on our tour of Andalucia.

This is a fantastic hotel.... small but well equipped, good rooms, excellent friendly service, perfectly located.... and great value for money too.

It is a small hotel but who cares - who wants a big hotel when a small hotel can be as good as this ! The only thing you might miss are a restaurant and things like a pool... but everything else makes up for that.

It is in a perfect location. Just off one of the main squares in the centre of the old part of Granada and within walking distance (half a mile) of the Alhambra (although it is a very steep hill so I wouldn't recommend the walk !). The area around has many restaurants and bars, the main shopping area is not far away. Basically you're in the centre of everything.

The rooms were very comfortable, good standard, modern facilities, The hotel has a small patio at the back and a small public internet lounge area.

The service was very friendly and helpful. There were only a small number of young staff but they were happy to chat and help with directions and advice. Their English was fantastic. The standard of service here was exactly the kind of high quality friendly service that large hotel chains try to 'fake' - but here it was the genuine article - perfect, personal, friendly service.

My husband and I travelled to Andalucia for the first time. We arrived in Granada, stayed for a day, they travelled to Cordoba for 5 days. Finally, a few days before our flight back to the UK, we returned to Granada for the Alhambra and souvenirs. All I can say is that this hotel was like a breath of fresh air after 5 days in a snobbish, top end 4 star in Cordoba. We realise where relaxation comes from, not from fancy rooms and marble bathrooms, but from cordial staff, cleaniness, and proximity to tourist attractions. Yes, the sizes of the rooms here are a quarter of those in Cordoba, but we welcome the ´coziness´ of them. Also the free internet and unlimited tea and coffee are simple basics that are priceless when you have spent the whole day outside. The last thing we want to do, but HAD to do in cordoba was search for a nice cup of ENGLISH tea after a day of sightseeing ( we had to settle for McDonalds in Cordoba!) Yes, travelling should open us up to new cultural experiences like funky mint tea, but sometimes the norm is good as well!

Finally, the staff here were very helpful as soon as we walked through the door. The lady booked our tickets to Alhambra plus suggested a few other activities. And she spoke perfect English.

Oh, one last thing, the hotel is literally metres from Plaza Nueva, which is full of great shops and eateries.

We stayed here for four days in October. Location is perfect at the intersection of the albaycin old quarter, the route up to the alhambra, and main city. Staff was extremely helpful and attentive and gave us some great tips about places to eat and see in the area. Great value for the money, especially since we are from the US and the euro exchange rate is hefty right now. My only downside is that our room (which was the cheapest we could find in the hotel at this time of year of low season at 60ish euros) was on the smallish side (like about a 100 sq ft-ish) which is just enough size for two people but if you're going to be spending most of your time outside visiting the area and only sleeping in the room shouldn't be a problem.
A quick side note about Granada, I heard from a few people that it is one of the the cheapest city in Spain(which my spouse said was also true based on the souvenirs she looked at in various cities) so I would stock up here if i were you!

I would definitely stay there again

Right across the street Calle Elvira, where there are also a lot of halal shawarma and kebab shops as well for those who are interested in that.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in late September. There was working AC in the room, which was nice, and plenty of space for two people. The room was clean, the bathroom just fine, and the people at the reception desk were friendly and helpful. I don't have any complaints about the hotel, in fact.

The best part of the hotel, though, was its perfect location. It was very near the center of Granada, so that the Albaicin was in one direction, the Alhambra in another (just up the hill from this hotel, in fact), and the rest of Granada (Cathedral, markets, more restaurants) in a third direction. However, it was not on a busy street, so street noise was not an issue. We could not have asked for a more convenient home base in Granada. Plus, gratefully, it was not up on top of a steep hill. If we had stayed in the Albaicin or near the Alhambra, as we had considered doing, we would have been very sorry to face an uphill walk when heading home after sightseeing. You can't do better than this on location in Granada.
