Amid the lively streets of central Granada, this economical accommodation has direct access to historic monuments. Located on the arterial Calle Gran Via, the heritage-styled Hostal Atenas is a five-minute walk from the cathedral and close to major bus connections. Rooms are kept spotlessly clean and all have private bathrooms, air conditioning, heating, TV and complimentary WI-FI, some rooms freshly renovated with flat screens and new decor. From this position in town, guests don't have to go far to experience the city's cafe culture, with tapas bars, restaurants and plenty of places for churros within close range. To get to the Alhambra takes around five minutes by cab, a walk of 30 minutes along the pretty Gran Via.
