Hostal Costa Azul
Ranked #24 of 97 Granada B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 August 2007

Found this hostal by chance when we got to Granada, and were happy to get a room. Centrally located, it is great for those travelling with a budget, which we decided to do for some nights.

Our double room (No. 204) was simple and clean, nothing fancy but great for 50 Euros/night. Reception staff was very friendly.

The front desk people were great, the breakfast ok, and the room was pretty sad. It was so tiny, that my friend and I had to hang our backpacks in order to be able to move there. The bathtub has a step in it which you cannot see, so my friend fell hard. The room was average clean - you would not like to walk around with no shoes. And the most important part - the noise from the street was horrible! While the hotel is located on a side street, there are several tabernas on that street and you can hear the noise of drunken people till early hours in the morning. So if you have a choice to book one of the rooms on another side, do. The good thing is that the hotel made reservations for us at the Alhambra. That was painless and we realized that most people did not even know you can ask your hotel to do it for you.

The staff was pleasant and welcoming. It was a budget stay - there isn't an elevator and the staff flips the air conditioning circuit breaker sometime during the night or when you leave the building. But you have a small, private bathroom and basic cable/TV in the room. There is free Internet in the lobby. The Hostal is a block away from the Calle Navas, a street with many small restaurants, in one direction, and Calle Varela, where there is a small supermarket. There is good taxi and bus transportation nearby. Definitely worth the stay if you are traveling on the cheap.

Hostal Costa Azul is right in the city centre. The location has obviously many advantages. But also some disadvantages - it could be too loud at times because people in Spain celebrate sth almost every night.
My room was clean, the towels were changed every day. The soap was also provided. Furniture - basic but functional.
As for the breakfast, it was very tasty: juices, fruits, chocolate buns, cereal.
The staff was OK but it was difficult to communicate - in English - with some of them as they only speak Spanish.

I loved the warmth of Marisa and the staff at the Hostal Costa Azul. The location is excellent and it is really central to all the sightseeing in Granada. The breakfast was good Granada is truly a fantastic destination, the nearby tapas bars are excellent.

I loved the hospitality and warmth of Marisa and the staff at the Hostal Costa Azul. The location is excellent and it is really central to all the sightseeing in Granada. Te rooms are basic but clean and well kept and there is lots of hot water for showers. The breakfast was good for the price and I always felt safe at the hostal and the surrounding area. Granada is truly a fantastic destination and the people are very friendly and the nearby tapas bars are excellent!

my boyfriend and i stayed here when he came to visit granada, and we really did enjoy it very much. its in a pretty good location, only a 10 minute walk from the fabulous plaza nueva, which is where you access the albaicin and the alhambra. our room was 45 euros a night for a double, and that was the rate that you can get just when you call the hostal. we had a living room type room, and a big bed with a big closet. we were on the top floor and there was no elevator, which ended up working out ok because it was only 3 floors. the only negative aspect about it was the shower. despite the fact that it was clean, it was not the nicest one i have ever been in. no amenities, but definately worth every penny!
