The reason we were there was that most other places were booked for the poetry festival.
We were walk-ins and paid for 6 nights.
The room had a spiral staircase up to the second bed which cut a great deal of the space from the room. The door out if the room did not seal at the bottom and had no inside lock or latch, so anyone with a key could have walked in.
Because of the odd floor plan the tv had to be moved to view it.
The on demand shower head was cheap and fell apart often while taking a shower.
Breakfast was nothing special. There were no signs to let you know when it might be served by the rather surly, unsmiling, unfriendly staff.
The desk personnel were friendly enough but when we had to leave a day early they refused to refund the one day. We had to go through the credit card with a dispute. They claimed it was against their policy which we never saw and were never given.
There are much better places in Granada to stay and I would recommend booking one of the others.
On the plus, it is three blocks from town center.
