Possibly we should have heeded the position in the ranking but we were wooed by the quirkiness!
Granted the position opposite the Alambra is good providing you get a room with the view however the street is full of revellers till the early hours so you probably wont get much sleep.
We arrived on a damp december morning having transfered from a hotel in the shopping district to be more convenient for our Albaicin visit. The first thing we noted was the steep and uneven steps up to reception so not for the disabled as the lift does not start till the first floor! The reception staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. Our room was definately quirky but pokey would have been a better description. The double room comprised of a small double pushed against the wall so the unfortunate sleeping that side had to climb over the other sleeper as the bottom of the bed was against the wardrobe . The ensuite was a small narrow area less than 3 feet wide ( probably would not pass building regs in some other countries) it was definately a case of tuck your elbows in! I know it was an old builing but so was everything else including the threadbare bedlinen which was so old and thin it appeared grey in colour. What was the last straw for us was the room was freezing , the aircon/ heat unit did not work even though the receptionist said it was showing max temp. The central heating we were told did not come on till 7pm! It did just that but went off early so by the time we came back from dinner and an evening stroll, it was off and the room was again freezing. We asked to change rooms but there was no help there . We spoke to other guests and they had similar complaints to ours . We did not bother with breakfast as that was taken in the bar downstairs which did not look very appealing to us .
