Not bad, but not good either
Posted Jan 3, 2008
Summary: a budget priced hotel, and unfortunately budget quality too. First, the good news. The location is reasonable, with Granada's city centre being 10-15 minutes stroll away. The hotel staff were all helpful and spoke good English. Our room was of a good size, the beds were comfortable and all the facilities in the room were generally clean and worked properly. The main downside is that the hotel is located on the main road between the city centre and the university. If you have a room at the front facing on to this road you can expect to have drunken students passing every 15 minutes until 3am, being very loud and making it hard to get a good night's sleep. Additionally the city's largest hospital is just around the corner so there are often ambulances passing with sirens wailing. We booked the trip on a room-only basis and that was very fortunate. We tried one breakfast at the hotel and the coffee and orange juice were both very watery, and the food tasteless and uninspiring. Conclusion: if you get a room away from the street and don't want to eat at the hotel this could make a nice cheap base for your trip to the beautiful city of Granada. But you might be better off paying a bit more money and getting somewhere slightly more upmarket if you can afford it.
