Would not recommend staying here unless you are without a car and you want easy access to the Alhambra, the only good thing about this hotel is that as well as their overpriced rooftop bar with decent views. Whatever you are doing, absolutely do not bring your car here. Never. It is impossible to get to on one lane streets that deny most cars that aren't busses or taxis or motorcycles. I you are renting a car, just park in a parking in the San Augistin parking garage, around a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The people at the hotel tell you to Drop your bags off at the hotel, then come back and park, then walk to the hotel. Please do not do this. I saw a car accident occur because a car tried to enter one of these streets near the hotel. If you see any man in their 50s or 60s trying to offer help to you, refuse it, because they will just take you to the hotel, then you will have to take your car back, and they will try to request 20 euros from you.Unless you have a walking disability, do not listen to the hotel and simply walk your bags up the hill. Service at the hotel was great though.…
Amazing location, walking distance from everything. Surrounded by bars and restaurants but the hotel itself was quiet, I didn't hear any street noise. Friendly, professional and helpful staff. A large comfortable room with well stocked mini bar and a full bathroom with shower and bath. Easy, quick check in and check out. We will definitely go back to Hotel Puerta de las Granadas!!!
Beautiful, clean room, updated style. Front desk staff were very nice, provided answers to our questions and helped with finding our way to a restaurant. The WiFi was good and we added breakfast - it was excellent.
This was a return after 8 years and the renovation has been fantastic! The service is still superb and the staff are wonderful: happy helpful and extremely pleasant. Location is still the best. New addition of roof terrace bar is wonderful!
If you’re going to the Albaicin and you want good authentic Middle Eastern food, this is where you will find it. I made the mistake of going to a restaurant in the main tourist Alley, and it was horrible. But this place makes up for that terrible experience. This is good. Come here don’t waste your money anywhere else.
My family of four stayed here for four nights during Semana Santa. We were two adults and two children (ages 7 & 4). I booked the hotel directly on the hotel website 3 months prior to the trip. I booked the Studio Gomerez and for 4 nights during Semana Santa (including Good Friday and Easter Sunday) it was 740 Euros. This flexible rate did not include the hotel breakfast. The hotel location: This was the most outstanding feature of the hotel. It’s located on Cuesta de Gomerez, which is one of the main pedestrian paths to Puerta de las Granadas, a large stone arch marking the pedestrian entrance to Alhambra. Each morning we could see tourists walking by the hotel on their way to Alhambra. We saw joggers and people exercising because the public area of Alhambra is a beautiful park. If I had time I would have loved to spend two hours walking the paths around Alhambra. We walked to Alhambra twice- once for a night tour of Generalife and once for a day tour of Alhambra itself. It was such an easy walk from the hotel, even with a 4 and 7 year old. Along Cuesta de Gomerez are souvenir shops, coffee shops, a candy shop, and the delicious Bar Los Diamentes. The hotel is steps away from Plaza Nueva, and there are cafes and restaurants there also. From here you can walk north to the Albaicin, the old Arab district, and Mirador de San Nicolas, the lookout. You can also walk to the Hamam Al Andalusia, Gran Via, and the Plaza de Bib Rambla which has some restaurants and is a good area for children. There is also a Los Diamentes Bib Rambla which has normal table seats (instead of the high top tables and seats). If you don’t have hotel breakfast, then there is Minuit Pan y Cafe, and the food is good but it’s small and tight. The hotel room: We had room 200- the Studio Gomerez- which you can access either via a small circular staircase or an older, smaller elevator. Room 200 consists of 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 windows that open to lookout onto Cuesta de Gomerez (the street the hotel sits on). The rooms are small and the bathrooms are both small. Just be sure you’re mentally prepared for that. Perhaps other rooms in the same hotel are larger or have a better layout- I’m not sure as I didn’t see other rooms. The standing shower of the main bedroom is actually quite large, and the toilet seat in that bathroom is a bidet toilet seat. The sink is outside of the bathroom, and located in the bedroom. The sink and the sink counter area are very small, and water easily spills onto the black towel shelf below which also stores the hair dryer, so its a strange design. But you can make it work by using an extra towel to absorb the water spillage. My older child slept on a pull out bed that turns into a couch, and the younger child slept in a well appointed baby cot. The baby cot had a proper mattress, baby pillow and baby blanket. There is a small empty fridge in each room with 2 free bottles of water. It was nice to have an empty fridge, instead of a minibar, to store our own drinks and food items. The beds were comfortable. I brought my own toiletries and room slippers which I recommend doing if you enjoy those sorts of things. The hotel breakfast: Because our rate didn’t include breakfast, we only ate at the hotel for breakfast one morning, before our Alhambra tour. It was 12 euros per adult. I think for that price, the hotel could offer higher quality breads and a greater variety of fresh fruits, and perhaps some non-dairy milk options like soy or almond milk. The staff: Everyone was helpful and Rosario especially was so patient and kind in answering my questions. The hotel amenities: There is a restaurant located on the ground floor of the hotel. We ordered from there one evening and it was fine. There is a 10% discount for hotel guests. There is a rooftop bar/dining area with a fabulous view of Alhambra. I regret not making time to have a drink up there. There is a laundry service of 10 euros/kg and we made use of that. It was about a 48 hour turnaround- I’m not sure if it being Easter weekend affected the timing. We had the spectacular pleasure of watching the Saturday evening Semana Santa procession go directly in front of the hotel. We were able to watch from the comfort of our hotel room. What a treat! I had no idea the procession would pass in front of the hotel until about 1 hour before the procession began. For people who don’t need luxury, but just need a clean space to sleep while touring Granada, then I highly recommend this centrally located hotel. The location is outstanding and the staff are friendly.…
We spent 4 days in the hotel during Holy Week. Our balcony overlooked the Saturday processional, so we had front row seats. It is with-in walking distance of Alhambra, Cathedral and other important monuments in Granada. Clean, modern, all the amenities, rooftop terrace and patio and street side restaurant. Staff was welcoming and helpful.
The hotel was very clean and staff very friendly. Lovely restaurant attached to hotel which served great food & wine. Roof bar terrace offered amazing views of Granada. Excellent location for the Alhambra and all parts of the city. Rooms were small but great for a city break because we were out and about most of the time. Reasonable price and we would definitely stay here again.
Overall, we couldn't have stayed in a better location. It was so close to the Alhambra and the beautiful river walk. We stayed in the alhambra view room number 401. I asked for that particular room after reading TripAdvisor reviews and they were very kind in reserving it for me. 2 free waters bottles on arrival and an empty fridge to store you snacks and drinks which was great. Restaurant on site and a beautiful terrace. Negatives: - hard to get to by car so we arranged our own parking before we got there. - the bathrooms are very small and pokey - some details lacking to make it 5 stars eg not enough towels so had to go and ask for more, no tea in the rooms just coffee, noone on reception when we arrived (we had to wait about 5 minutes for someone to turn up)
A small hotel located in the heart of Granada, nearly everything including the Alhambra located within walking distance. Staff were friendly, affable, and gave tips and advice. Rooms were clean with all brand new fittings albeit a little on the small side. We had a balcony which overlooked the street and that street led up to the Alhambra. As a bonus, the toilet actually had a bidet and the bathroom only had a shower which was not a problem. I really enjoyed my stay in this lovely city. Hotel rates were extremely reasonable and would recommend it to any visitor
