Noisy, dark room. Wrong location for us.
Posted Nov 11, 2016
We found our room to be small, noisy and depressing. Terrible lighting and windows looked directly into surrounding buildings/rooftops. Our bathroom separated from neighbors with a glass partition that split a window shared between two rooms that were obviously originally one room - meaning we could hear everything from our neighbors bathroom.
We drove to Granada - big mistake to stay in this hotel. We had to park in a public lot which added 25 euros/day to our bill, plus we had to take a cab to the hotel the first day as we didn't have directions. Apparently the hotel has a relationship with certain parking lots that would have made it about 5 euros/day less expensive. We were not informed of these arrangements in advance. When we got to the hotel, they suggested that we move the car, but by then we were so frustrated by trying to get there that we just paid for the more expensive parking.
Note that location is far from entrance to Alhambra, and in a noisy part of town that is mobbed with tourists, tacky shops and terrible restaurants. In retrospect, we would have been better off staying outside the historic area and taking a cab to Alhambra.
