This was the perfect place to stay in beautiful Granada, Spain. The hotel was quiet, clean, and well-staffed. The room was the most modern we had come across in our tour of Spain. The bathroom was our favorite bar far. Not only was it spacious and clean, but the mirror was even heated to prevent steam.

The view from our room was of the busy Granada streets, but with the windows closed it was quiet as could be. It was a five to ten minute walk to the foot of La Alhambre. However, then you have the option of taking a bus to the top of the hill or walk it. We hiked it, it took about 20-30 minutes, but it was a great workout.

Breakfast was not included. There was parking, not sure if there was an additional fee. This wasn't the least expensive hotel we stayed in, but it was worth every euro.

The hotel staff was excellent. They were friendly and knowledgeable about the city and its restaurants. We asked for a place to have dinner with a view of La Alhambra, not only did they select a delicious place, call the restaurant for us, and make a reservation, but they called us a cab and gave specific directions to ensure our easy arrival. The restaurant was Restaurante Las Tomasas, check out the pictures for the view.

We will definitely recommend and return to this hotel!

We chose this hotel in order to cash in some NH loyalty points, othrwise we could have got slightly better value for money elsewhere in Granada. We arrived by train from Seville and had a simple taxi ride to the front of the hotel - there's no problem finding it as it stands on a prominent position on one of the city's main thoroughfare's. Check-in was smooth - offered upgrade for 25 euros but we were on a budget so declined.

Our (first) room looked OK at first sight, nice and modern but slightly dark due to the low-level of lighting provided. However when we returned to the hotel after dinner, the room felt excessively hot and stuffy. Turning on the aircon had no effect as the cooling circuit had been switched off for the "winter" months (even though it never got below 12C at night). I've seen this practice soooo many times in S European hotels, and it's a shame the hotel management fails to understand that people from other parts of the world have different comfort levels when it comes to sleeping temperatures. Opening the window alas had no effect either as it opened into a sealed internal courtyard full of hot stuffy air.

Reluctantly I had to return to the front desk at what was, by now, almost midnight. I expected the usual argument that it was winter and a/c was not needed, but instead they almost immediately and without any unpleasantness offered us an upgrade to a much larger corner room facing the street. I beleive this may have been one of the executive rooms on offer at check-in. The new room had the major advantage of having severla large french windows that could be opened onto small balconies to let in the cool breeze. The only disadvantage was the street noise from party-goers down below, which continued until 2 or 3 in the morning. Although slightly undesirable, this bothered us less than the high temperature in the first room and we slept soundly after long days of sight-seeing.

We did not eat in the hotel, as there was plenty of choice of restuarants within 5-10 minutes walking distance. We particularly liked one of the N African style restaurants on the hill opposite the Alhambra, and a bistro-type place on a narrow pedestrianised street just to the NE of the hotel. For breakfast, we simple visited the ice-cream place across the road from the hotel for a simple coffee and croissant. I think the hotel breakfast (not included in our rate) was an extortionate 17 Euros pp (one of the few significant drawbacks of the NH chain in my view).

Loacation-wise the hotel is absolutely fine as you are right in the city centre and can explore everywhere on foot, though the hill up to the Alhambra is fairly taxing. We enjoyed Granada, though we felt it was slightly less interesting than Seville and Cordoba which we had visited before.

Our rooms overlooked one of the main street in downtown Granada, so we heard partying young people until 6 am. We still managed to sleep well, but if noise is a problem for you, ask for an upper floor room or stay somewhere else. Rooms were very nice - clean modern decor, marble baths, in-room safe, mini-fridge. We were able to walk to the major sights - Plaza Nueva, Alhambra, Cathedral.

We have also stayed at Hotel Migueletes in Granada and NH Victoria is much better. The rooms at NH Victoria were quite large. The hotel is in a great location and easy access for sightseeing in Granada. Though it is on a busy street we did not have a problem with street noise. The breakfast buffet was the largest we had throughout Spain and very delicious.

Will definitely stay here again.

We chose this hotel because it was inner city and had parking. I used google for directions. Be warned the hotel was not where google said it would be and it took a bit of finding in the one way street system. Once there it was great. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was modern with lots of little extras like a tiny reading light over each side of the bed and a shaving mirror. It was spotless which should go without saying. Perhaps its the 4 star that has the extras, but we paid the same as a 2 star in seville which didnt have the extra. We had a huge comfy bed. It was above a noisy street but seemed to be double glazed and had thick curtains so even on a friday night it wasnt noisy in the room.
The hotel is well located with easy walk to the cathedral and lots of shops and restaurants. Alhambra is about 1 km away. We walked easily but there are buses to take you up the hill
We didnt eat in the restaurant, Breakfast was E14. If you want an excellent gourmet meal try Las Tinajas about 500m walk away.

Parking E18/day but you dont want to drive around the city centre..

I was very pleasantly surprised with Granada in general, and this hotel made it even better. Very centrally located - on a main corner with lots of restaurants and stores nearby. Rooms were nice, and the staff happily held our bags for the second day since we had a night train to Barcelona the second evening. When we left, we needed taxis - and the bellman called them, made sure they showed up, loaded our bags and refused a tip!

Hotel was just OK. Went back/forth about where to stay and decided on Hotel NH Victoria based on rates/TA. We checked in and it was easy. They offered me upgrade so obviously said yes. What they didn't say is that there would be a 25 Euro fee (it was in Spanish behind check in counter but who was looking) so fine, checked in, had an OK room, can't imagine what I WAS going to be in. Location was great but very noisy. Could hear people talking/laughing (they party late in Spain) till wee hours of the night. We asked 3 times for towels and never got them. Didn't eat so can't review food. If to do Granada again would do day trip or stay outside of city, not necessary to be in city. Quaint city but really it's all about the Alhambra - Stunning and BOOK tickets in advance - thanks TA for that advice.
