No parking places nearby. The recommended parking place (still almost 1 km away from the hotel) was fully booked. We needed a long time to find another parking place, which was quite expensive and some km away from the hotel so that we needed a taxi. We were staying in one of the apartments, which are located a few hundred...

This is a boutique hotel just below the Alhambra, in this wonderful Arabic part of Granada called Albaicín. They offer both standard hotel rooms, but also an affordable apartment building about 200 metres uphill in the same street. We stayed in apartment 2B, a large two bedroom flat with a kitchen and a wonderful view to Alhambra. The downside: there's...

This hotel is a nightmare, it's a shame one cannot give negative points on this site. It's completely incomprehensible to me how they reached such high rankings. It's a nightmare logistically, from entering central Granada to the moment we finally could enter our room, we spent 1,5 hours of juggling our luggage through Granada. The staff is unfriendly, the rooms...

Location was excellent, an easy walk to the cathedral/town center and a pleasant 25 minute walk to the Alhambra. Our room was spacious with a tiny balcony and a view of the little bridge and waterway across the street from the hotel. The whole place seems a bit dark at first, but this is a pleasant relief from the relentless...

During our ten days tour to Spain we stayed one night in Granada where we stayed at Shine Albayzin. As we were four of us, parents + 2 children we wanted a family room and we got an apartment which was perfect for us. It was clean, neat, 2 bed rooms, kitchen and a living room. The kitchen was fully...

The hotel was really nice. It was clean and the receptionists were absolutely amazing. The only negatives were that our room was next to the road and it was noisy one night however that not the fault of the hotel rather the people. The shower room could have been a little bit cleaner. The room was like a mini apartment...

We got a last minute deal for the 2 bedroom apartment for 70 euros a night. We didn't need a second bedroom but the price was competitive with single rooms. Very important to note the apartment is NOT in the main hotel. You have to walk another 5-10 minutes down the street, away from the city center, to get to...

The Shine Albazyn is a boutique hotel housed in a fully refurbished property in one of Granada's historical quarters. The location is walking distance to the city centre. The suites face the Alhambra. Breaksfast is delicious and it is served until noon. What is remarkable about this hotel is the staff, in particular Inma, the manager. She organised a courier...

We had a fantastic room with an incredible view of the Alhambra! The hotel is set off one of Granada's most famous thoroughfares. It has a historic feel with an impressive wooden courtyard. The lady who checked us in was very professional and informative. The room was well appointed with nice furniture with a brilliant shower and a comfortable bed....
