“Lovely hotel, shame about the restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2008

6 of us stayed for two nights recently on the way to a family wedding, it was just a wonderful start to the holiday.
We all loved the hotel from the first moment we walked into it, the reception staff are so good and the smell of vanilla in the air was lovely. The rooms we had were large enough though be warned a lot of glass is used so be careful with whom you share. The rooms were quiet and dark at night so no complaints there, the location is good also and the car gets taken away and returned for you when you need it.
The only problem with this hotel is the restaurant, the food when you get it is excellent. But the service is just about the worst I have experienced in a long long time. It started with the wrong table been allocated to us we wanted to eat in the garden and they tried to push us inside. Perhaps this upset them as the we had to wait for about 30 minutes to get a menu in English then it was one poor photo copy to share between 6 people. A further 40 minutes passed before our order was taken and a bit of bread placed on our side plates. Then a further 40 minutes before the starters arrived - so nearly 2 hours from entering the restaurant before we had something to eat - this despite complaining on two seperate occassions. The food when it came was very good to be fair.
I would strongly recommend this hotel but dont use the restaurant it is just that bad.

This beautiful hotel in a quiet back street in Granada is the perfect place for a romantic holiday. It is a haven of peace after the bustle of the Alhambra, or a day spent driving through the baking heat of Andalusia. The photographs on its website look attractive, but the reality is even better.

The staff are welcoming, courteous and efficient, and many of them speak English. The atrium of the hotel is candle-lit and features a pool which provides the peaceful sound of running water in the background. The garden, where we dined on our first evening, is secluded and charming: it's difficult to believe that you are in the middle of a large city. Our room on the first floor, overlooking the street, was not large, but quiet and very comfortable, with all the facilities of a much larger hotel - flat-screen television, minibar, safe.

Breakfast was in the dining room, and offered a wide choice of dishes to suit all tastes.

We had returned for a second visit this year, and were offered free use of the spa for the duration of our visit, which we greatly enjoyed.

I really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough . . . although I don't want too many people to find out about it, or I might not be able to book a room for next summer!

  • Liked — The wonderful atmosphere in the entrance and the atrium.
  • Disliked — The fact that the lavatory had a glass door and afforded no privacy.

This hotel has a splendid location, on walking distance from Cathedral and Alhambra. The hotel is excellent, with beautiful rooms and a magnificient internal architecture. The garden-terrace is a jewel.
But most of all, the kitchen is worth a Michelin star. It is very rare to find in Spain such quality, at very reasonable prices. Service and maître were upperclass.
Just a small example of the service-level: the windscreen of my car was cleaned before departure. I have experienced such kind of service only once somewhere else during the last 20 years.
