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.
