Our stay didn't get off to a great start, I found it very difficult to get to the hotel by car due to the one way system. I then had to park in a very tight garage behind the hotel. If possible, don't come to this hotel by car! However our stay at the hotel helped unwind this stress. We...

The hotel is extremely conveniently located, very central: about a minute from the Cathedral and Capilla Real, the winding streets of the Albaicin, the buses in Plaza Nueva and just about every other attraction in the city. The Alhambra's a 20min or so walk by one of the several (steepish) routes up the hillside. We had a most beautiful room...

The Autograph Collection hotels are an upper tier Marriott brand and this hotel, which is built around a former convent, is lovely with a wonderful inner courtyard for drinks or a light lunch. It is located near the Cathedral on a main street, Gran Via de Colon, but our room was quiet and well appointed. Staff was extremely well trained...

I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but never one with as beautiful courtyards and overall ambiance as the Palacio de Santa Paula. Afternoon drinks in the courtyard were fabulous and the staff were so great. The hotel is centrally located and easy walking distance to most things. Would stay here again if I ever get the chance.

The hotel is very well situated, beautifully decorated (stay in the older part... the convent part) with excellent service, both cleaning and other services. To improve: 1. The breakfast staff did not always understand our orders which were made in English - which is not satisfactory for a 5 star hotel. 2. The lobby recommended a flamengo show (Venta el...

This is a lovely hotel, fantastic location in the centre of Granada. The rooms are a delight overlooking the courtyard of what used to be a monastery. Sympathetic to the history but modern with comfortable beds and so tranquil. I can't speak highly enough of the service, attentive, friendly and helpful. It was great visiting at Easter but beware all...

We stayed for 3 nights and loved the hotel. We got a room facing the main courtyard on the second floor which was very peaceful with the sound of the fountain. I would highly recommend it. The restaurant at the hotel was also amazing for dinner. It's conveniently located near the main sites in the city center with lots of...

We struggled to choose a hotel in Granada as there are not many obvious luxury options in the centre, and everything seemed to have some disadvantage apparent from the reviews. This is a very well located hotel on a busy road, easy walking distance to most city centre sights. Modern in style, we had a good sized comfortable standard room...

This hotel is a converted convent. They have done a wonderful job of converting this to a modern comfortable hotel. The rooms are very unique as it retains the round-arched windows on the facade. We were then in March and the air conditioning wasn't turned on yet, so we slept with the windows open and it was very comfortable.

My wife and I just spent 5 days in the hotel. Location - Extremely conveniently located on Granada's main and very pleasant street. Only a few minutes walk to the cathedral, and all the most interesting parts of the city. The Alhambra is just a few minutes away by taxi, and perhaps 20 minutes away by foot. One can also...
