Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently for two nights. We actually turned up an hour before check in, but they didn't even question this and checked us right in without any fuss or question.

Over the duration of our stay there were some renovations going on in the room adjacent to us, which generated quite a lot of noise for quite a while during the day, as well as the staircase to the 2nd floor being sanded which covered the pool with garbage.

However the staff were nice and courteous, the bed was huge and very comfortable, the AC and fridge both worked well, the wifi signal was good (room 11) and both the room and the hotel itself had been well maintained. The breakfast was good - while not special or anything as such, it was solid and more than enough to start the day.

All in all, a pleasant stay; but do bargain with them and offer to pay cash. We didn't do this and should have, given that it's off season currently.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

Hotel is located in a good spot for visiting all of Granada's hotspots. Rooms are clean and spacious. Bathroom is clean with shampoo and blowdryer. Pool is Nice and refreshing after a day of sightseeing. I would recommand it, but be zware of the taxes. If you boom online and get a quote which says it's tax included, it's probably not.
Breakfast is simple, but enigheid to start your day. WiFi workshop excellent in all areas.

Room Tip: Any room is good I suppose

This hotel, run by Best Western, is only 1.5 blocks from the central square in Granada. The rooms aren't huge but they are well-appointed and very quiet considering it's in the middle of the city. The pool is great and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast was only okay and for a supposed 4-star hotel, they could improve the quality of the food.

Room Tip: The second floor is probably best as it's likely less noisy.

I enjoyed my 5 night stay at this small hotel (20 rooms). I had working A/C and a working in-room refrigerator. The shower worked well and even provided some reasonably warm water. TV and WiFi worked great (although the Wifi requires having a room against the pool; the first room I was assigned (#20) had no wifi reception, but I moved to the slightly smaller room next door (#19) and this was resolved). I was able to negotiate a better rate than what I saw available on Booking.com because of the length of stay and my willingness to pay cash. The daily breakfast was quite nice, not fancy but tasty and well-presented. I would stay here again.

Don't trust the staff in this hotel, after they charged my credit card my card was skimmed,since it was the only transaction made on that card and they were the only ones I provided my card details to I sincerely thinks someone over there skimmed it.
the room was small and staff not friendly, overpriced hotel.

Only the most seasoned sports fan would recognize the name of this downtown steak and fish joint from the archaic poem “Casey at the Bat,” but it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know what hits the spot. Mighty Casey may have struck out in the end, but Mudville 9 hits a home run by slinging burgers, popping jalapeños and swinging bleu cheese-doused celery stalks. You might take ball 4 and miss the striking waitresses if you order out, but the wings will be hotter than hot, with 4 leagues of spiciness and other tantalizing sauces to ruffle your feathers. Get the most bang for your buck by ordering by the bucket or bountiful party platter, with prices so cheap you’ll think its 1888. GOOD PLACE TO STAY!

This colonial style hotel is an attractive building in a quiet street not far from the centre of the city.
The rooms are, however arranged around a interior courtyard in the Spanish manner and this does mean that everything that happens in that courtyard is audible in the rooms. In addition most of the rooms only have internal windows. This makes them cool but also rather dark and people passing in the corridors can see into the rooms.
I would like to comment on the service of the staff but we hardly saw any. I can't make up my mind is this is a good thing or a bad thing. The hotel ran perfectly well so one can assume that, wherever they were, they were doing their job. The exception was breakfast service which depended on one girl serving and a woman cooking and they were greatly overstretched.

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the main courtyard and with external windows.
