          Absolutely worth your money”

          The Alhambra is one of those magic places and staying this close to it is really a unique experience. There is so much attention to detail in this amazing historic hotel! We had the junior suite with two balconies which was absolutely fantastic looking over part of the Alhambra complex. We traveled with a 5-month old baby and everything was perfectly arranged. Could not have asked for a better stay. The Hermes toiletries and the jacuzzi bath were a really nice additional touch!

          This is one of the most spectacular of the Parador hotels. Definitely worth the premium cost if you're going to see the Alhambra - the hotel is one of the historic buildings that make up the fortress. A beautiful space, small but well appointed rooms, excellent service, very special. Easy to walk down the steep hill into Granada - if you're not up to it, cabs are always waiting near the hotel entrance. I want to go back!

          Unique experience”

          Pros: The front desk staff was extremely helpful, quickly and thoroughly answering email questions and setting up my alhambra tour prior to my visit And super helpful during my visit. Not only did they give fantastic recommendations, make reservations, order taxis but also went above and beyond helping me send and retrieve a critical work related document and tried to help us track down a lost item on our bus to Granada. Special big recognition to Nestor and his colleagues at reception! The rooms was clean, comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Alhambra. The location is quiet, peaceful and very convenient to the Alhambra. Town is a nice long walk and Taxis are reasonable and easy to get to and from the town. Cons The bathroom was attractive but Ridiculously and bizaarly designed. No where to layout toiletries nor hang clothes or towels. Also, very little space in the rooms for "things". Felt like only a link who took austerity vows could function well in the room.

          Amazing, like staying in a beautiful museum”

          Loved every minute of my stay here. Incredible views of the Alhambra. Only disappointment was that when I booked on agoda I chose the slightly higher room rate because it included breakfast and when I got confirmation email it said breakfast was not included. I wrote to agoda and they said they could only help me if I had a screen shot proving that the rate I selected included breakfast! Why else would I pay more for the same room?! I didn't think to take a screen shy so no breakfast (it was a ridiculous 21 euros extra per person at hotel) so went next door and had a nice breakfast for 5 euros.

          clean, nice view, delicious food

          This hotel is in compound of the Alhambra palace. Nice for whom wants to look around the place with more time. But you will have to choose another hotel if you want to visit other attractions easily; this hotel is on the hill. But still worth staying as everything in the room was the best.

          Overpriced and under-serviced, a disappointing stay.”

          Undoubtedly the Parador de Granada is in a fantastic location but unfortunately that seems to have made the establishment think that they don't have to try to fulfil the expectation set by the price tag of the room. The room we had was clean and comfortable but not exceptional. We have stayed in better equipped and more luxurious bed and breakfast accommodation for a fraction of the cost. This was supposed to have been a special treat but we left feeling very short changed. We arrived at lunchtime and headed to their cafe for lunch. Located on a lovely terrace it looked inviting but the service was very slow, unwelcoming and many of the tables were left uncleared. We decided to eat dinner away from the Parador. We woke several times in the night hearing trolley-wheel type noises outside of our room. Breakfast service also came with slow and unfriendly service. The reception desk was undermanned during the morning and our complaint re noise was essentially dismissed. Stay elsewhere!

          You cannot beat the location but that is about it. For the money you pay, it should be a lot better. Not enough service and the bathroom was not very clean. Well overpriced but no competition so they will always be there. I will stay again sorely because of convenience to go to Alhambra.

          One of the most beautiful hotels, best location, great staff(but they need MORE people behind the desk at checkin)... and on the Alhambra grounds. Its has a great sense of PLACE.. historic, location, views.

          Unique experience”

          Pros: The front desk staff was extremely helpful, quickly and thoroughly answering email questions and setting up my alhambra tour prior to my visit And super helpful during my visit. Not only did they give fantastic recommendations, make reservations, order taxis but also went above and beyond helping me send and retrieve a critical work related document and tried to help us track down a lost item on our bus to Granada. Special big recognition to Nestor and his colleagues at reception! The rooms was clean, comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Alhambra. The location is quiet, peaceful and very convenient to the Alhambra. Town is a nice long walk and Taxis are reasonable and easy to get to and from the town. Cons The bathroom was attractive but Ridiculously and bizaarly designed. No where to layout toiletries nor hang clothes or towels. Also, very little space in the rooms for "things". Felt like only a link who took austerity vows could function well in the room.

          Amazing, like staying in a beautiful museum”

          Loved every minute of my stay here. Incredible views of the Alhambra. Only disappointment was that when I booked on agoda I chose the slightly higher room rate because it included breakfast and when I got confirmation email it said breakfast was not included. I wrote to agoda and they said they could only help me if I had a screen shot proving that the rate I selected included breakfast! Why else would I pay more for the same room?! I didn't think to take a screen shy so no breakfast (it was a ridiculous 21 euros extra per person at hotel) so went next door and had a nice breakfast for 5 euros.

          lovely hotel”

          clean, nice view, delicious food

          This hotel is in compound of the Alhambra palace. Nice for whom wants to look around the place with more time. But you will have to choose another hotel if you want to visit other attractions easily; this hotel is on the hill. But still worth staying as everything in the room was the best.

          Walking around the palace early in the morning is the privilege only available for the guests of this hotel - highly recommended
          No view from e room in new building, if possible, stay in older buidling.

          Reception staff are very helpful. Excellent access to the palace. Book a ticket for 8:30 Nasrid palace entrance, and enjoy the least crowded tour - privilege for parador's guests.

          Overpriced and under-serviced, a disappointing stay.”

          Undoubtedly the Parador de Granada is in a fantastic location but unfortunately that seems to have made the establishment think that they don't have to try to fulfil the expectation set by the price tag of the room. The room we had was clean and comfortable but not exceptional. We have stayed in better equipped and more luxurious bed and breakfast accommodation for a fraction of the cost. This was supposed to have been a special treat but we left feeling very short changed. We arrived at lunchtime and headed to their cafe for lunch. Located on a lovely terrace it looked inviting but the service was very slow, unwelcoming and many of the tables were left uncleared. We decided to eat dinner away from the Parador. We woke several times in the night hearing trolley-wheel type noises outside of our room. Breakfast service also came with slow and unfriendly service. The reception desk was undermanned during the morning and our complaint re noise was essentially dismissed. Stay elsewhere!

          You cannot beat the location but that is about it. For the money you pay, it should be a lot better. Not enough service and the bathroom was not very clean. Well overpriced but no competition so they will always be there. I will stay again sorely because of convenience to go to Alhambra.

          The room is very basic for a hotel at this price and doesn’t have the antique or historical look and feel at all. The cafe service was extremely slow in the afternoon. Took forever to order. Dinner was ok and nothing great.
