As first-time visitors we were more than impressed by the many attractions of Granada. We stayed 3 nights and that was just right for us with plenty to do and see.
The hotel location was hard to beat. An easy taxi journey from the train station, we asked to be dropped off at the Santa Ana church and strolled the 100 yards or so to the hotel. Walking to the Alhambra was about 30 minutes there and 20 back! There were also plenty bars and restaurants nearby and our preference was to eat in the square reached by turning left out of hotel and walking 5 minutes. Great views of Alhambra etc
We had a room on the second floor at the back of the hotel and this meant that the outside noise was minimal. We even slept with the window slightly ajar. I'm sure the rooms at the front had superior views but for us we would choose the quieter back location every time - it's just as well we are all different!
Staff excellent and breakfast excellent and overall room standard whilst not excellent certainly to an acceptable standard but will need some TLC in the not too distant future.

Its privileged location in the heart of Granada, at the foot of the Albayzin; its rooms bathed in the light of the Alhambra; its colonnaded patio; its lounge, vestibule and well/cistern... All these charms will lead you to the sound of water, and to a peace that will give you inner harmony. ... more less
