Very nice hotel, rooms larger than most in Europe, extremely comfortable beds. Right across from the Alhambra, so if you are short of time it is very convenient. Close to the small bus that takes you to the tourist area about 10 minutes away. The staff in this hotel are exceptional. Very, very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They can book... More

We were on an excursion to tour the Alhambra and arrangements were made to have lunch here. The buffet was generous and filling. The meal consisted of many offerings including paella, chicken, salads, fruit, mussels, vegetables, breads and wine. Everyone in our group seemed to be very pleased. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. Even though we were... More

We stayed just for one night, but for what we needed, this hotel offers more then enough. I should say, value for money is the best phrase to describe it. Room was clean and spacious, staff very pleasant nad obligingly, and the biggest advantage is the proximity of Alhambra Palace = within minutes of walk from hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour.The hotel was conveniently located near the Alhambra with a pleasant walk through woods to get into the city centre. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We ate one night in the hotel which was not great - a rather unimaginative buffet with a very disappointing desert selection (custard or ice-cream!).

We agree with previous reviewers about the great location and convenient minibus/land train services nearby. However we are concerned about safety in rooms such as ours as our bathroom had a small and narrow bath with the shower/taps protruding centrally out from the wall, plus the showerhead rail was coming off the wall. Awkward for us but could be dangerous... More
