Hotel Macia Real de la Alhambra
Ranked #37 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The hotel is conveniently located at the edge of the city not far off of the main autovia, so is pretty easy to get to if you are driving. Some street parking is available not too far off if you don't want pay the hotel car park charges. Buses to and from the city are frequent and cheap.

The hotel is functional, with good size rooms, spotlessly clean: and plenty of choice for breakfast, although most was pre-cooked and had been standing around for a while. We didn't find it particularly service oriented, though - the reception staff were businesslike, but not friendly, with one exception - the lady who checked us out, who responded to our less than fluent attempts at Spanish, by answering us in the same language: a gesture much appreciated, as other staff members just ignored it and spoke to us in English.

All in all, a fairly typical business hotel without a lot of character, but nevertheless a good base for Granada and the Alhambra if you are only staying a night or 2: and reasonable value for money.

This is a 4 stars hotel in the outskirts of Granada. By taking bus 33, which passes in front of the hotel, you will be in 10 minutes in downtown Granada. The hotel is as you would expect from a 4 stars hotel, with a nice reception, and nice, clean rooms. However, keep in mind, the pool IS NOT as nice as it looks on the pictures, is a rather small pool with view to the neighboring houses. I would say is a good 4 stars hotel, but nothing special and I found the views of the pool somewhat deceiving.

Recently spent three nights at the Hotel. The property is a new building on the outskirts of Granada. Very easy access with a car. We paid €11 per day to park in the two floor, extremely spacious underground garage, although there is safe outside parking in close proximity to the hotel. The hotel is very clean and modern in appearance. We didn't eat at the hotel and there is limited opportunities to dine in the immediate area. However, as previous reviews have mentioned, the No.33 bus, runs past the hotel, and for €1.20, you can be in the centre of Granada within 10 minutes. The bus runs every 10 minutes.

The hotel can arrange a guided tour of Alhambra, including pick up/drop off, for €52 per person. Given that the hotel is a five minute drive to the Palace, we drove up to the site on day of our visit
At 7:30a.m. (Ticket office opens at 8a.m.) and bought the general ticket each for €14. Parking for the 4 hours was €8.

The only downside to our 3 day visit, was the fact that we were awoken on two of the nights by the fire alarm! Whilst not confirmed, the receptionist on both days commented that somebody smoking in their room was the likely cause! This needs to be sorted out.

Otherwise, a very good reasonably priced hotel in a good location for easy access to the sights of Granada.

Absolute nightmare to find through the roadworks, but managed to get a free parking space on the road adjacement. Spacious hotel but very dated rooms, allbeit perfectly clean and serviceable. Breakfast was OK but nothing special. Was a little too far out of town to walk, so we had to get a taxi but this was reasonable enough price. Granada and Alhambra are a must visit and this hotel is good enough base for a short break there.

I suggest staying here for a more quite approach. They also booked a tour to see Alhambra, id suggest you book a tour yourselves ASAP. The staff was friendly they helped us order pizza, the rooms were nice, and bus 33 takes you from the main terminal to the hotel and also down town. Id suggest staying here.

A new hotel, spacious rooms.
A bus stop to the center around the corner. Every 10-15 minutes for 1.2 euro.
Staff are friendly but not efficient.
The inteenet had a very bad connectivity.
Breakfast was rich with a wide variety of products.

Stayed here for 2 nights in May. Hotel is generally quite big and open. Bedroom and bathroom is large and spacious, relatively modern and well-maintained. Breakfast is so-so, although theres not much in the area either. Free wi-fi is a plus. Service is friendly, but seems understaffed. Overall pretty good compared to other hotels I checked in Granada.

Location is very convenient if you have a car, as it is right off the highway and on the way to Alhambra. Not too far from city centre, but not exactly walking distance. There is also a large dept store within driving distance if you need a supermarket, pharmacy, etc.
