Good hotel in former monastery
Posted May 18, 2015
The almost ideal hotel for a short stay. The room we had was nicely fitted out (including the bathroom) and beautifully clean, with spacious and comfortable twin beds. No cupboard or chest of drawers as such, but enough space to hang and lay out clothes.
Staff were charming, efficient, and very helpful. (For instance when a complication about our pre-booked Alhambra tour came up, they contacted the tour company office in Madrid for us, and we were able to sort things out.) They also gave us useful and accurate information about where to find places we asked about in Granada, for instance Turkish baths!
A minor problem is that the hotel is next to a school and its games and assembly area. From about 7.45am every weekday morning, there was therefore a fair amount of noise outside our window from young schoolchildren arriving and playing. If this would trouble you, ask for a room overlooking the inner courtyard, NOT the school. The hotel was very quiet at night when we were there. The monastery bell rang hourly during daytime, but not at night.
