Carmen de la Alcubilla del Caracol
Ranked #61 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We enjoyed every minute of our 2-night stay at this charming B&B. It was very comfortable, squeaky clean, just a few minutes’ walk from the gates of the Alhambra, and the views from most balconies overlooked Granada. Each evening we enjoyed the sunset and was entertained while watching a hawk dive for dinner (bats) unsuccessfully. Manuel is the perfect host and very helpful. There is a wonderful restaurant within very easy walking distance for dinner with the same gorgeous view. We were so happy with this accommodation choice…….but, this location is not recommended for folks with mobility issues. Taxis are readily available though.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs verandah room --nice patio

We stayed for 2 nights in this excellent guesthouse type hotel. All the rooms and shared space + garden are decorated and presented as sophisticated and unpretentious. As others have said, Manuel is a perfect host - he pays great attention to detail, is very informative and charming (and he insisted on taking our luggage down the steep hill to the entrance). His advice was extremely helpful to our visit. The breakfasts were brilliant. But the jewel was sitting on a terrace overlooking Granada as the sun went down with the snow capped Sierra Nevada in the background. Quite the best hotel in Andalucia that we have stayed in - thank you very much Manuel.

I stayed for a too-brief two nights at this very charming guest house in Granada in October 2011. Located 100 m. from the Alhambra Palace Hotel and a few minutes' walk to the Alhambra itself, it is a beautifully maintained private home with seven rooms, a comfortable lounge for relaxing, a breakfast room, and exterior patios for enjoying the fantastic view of Granada and the Sierra Nevada mountains.

My room overlooked Granada and had two Juliet balconies. The "El Campo" room was large, basically but prettily appointed, and even the shower area had a lovely view. Breakfast was good at E8 and the honour bar was a great touch.

Our host, Manuel, was delightful and was a great source of information about the Alhambra and Granada itself.

If you are looking for luxury accommodation, this is not for you. But for me this was by far my favourite accommodation of my trip and I'm very glad I cancelled my Alhambra Palace reservation for this guest house.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here. This is a hotel which is originally a house, so it has the lovely feel of a house - spacious sitting room and entry, garden etc. The bedrooms are very pleasantly decorated and furnished with plenty of room and nice outlooks. The bathroom also was modern and very clean. Everything was just as represented in photos and websites. The location is just a few minutes walk from the Justice Gate entrance of the Alhambra and although it is located on an extremely narrow "street" it was easy to find by following the owner's instructions exactly which was basically to follow all signs to the "Alhambra" and as all approaches to Granada have signs pointing you to the Alhambra, that wasn't a problem. The owner parked our car for us and took great pains explaining to us and to another couple arriving at the same time about getting tickets for the Alhambra and the timing of our visit so that we wouldn't miss out on anything. He recommended restaurants and places to see and walk - he was very helpful indeed. It was the kind of one on one attention which you wouldn't normally get in a large hotel. The breakfast was fine (perhaps a touch expensive) and the location suited us fine - one way up to the hotel from the city is up a "street" which is exactly 98 steps - it didn't worry us at all but you can catch the local mini bus to the Alhambra Hotel which is just a couple of minutes walk away. It was just the sort of small hotel which we enjoy and we would recommend it to others who like this sort of accommodation.

This is the best hotel in which we stayed in Spain. Manuel is just the perfect host. The house is well positioned, the rooms private, we had our own terrace and the run of the house. It was just terrific.
