The hotel was very nice and in a great location. Problem was, even though we had a lovely view of the Mesquita the noise from the street, very early in the morning, was horrendous. Don't go for a room with a view!!

The bath towels are very small and there is no bath mat which I feel is important as the floor tiles are very slippery also there is no holder or shelf to put your soap, shampoo etc when in the shower. The address given on the confirmation is useless to find the hotel on sat nav as the street does not exist and we had to phone the hotel to get correct address. The cleanliness of the room is marked lower only because the room smelled of smoke when we entered. The quietness of the room is marked lower due to noise from the pool area in the morning and also being woken at 8.30 in the morning by loud hammering from somewhere outside the room.

Enjoyed our stay, great location for the Alhambra & the Moorish district (but best to get a taxi back up the hill !).Not the cheapest hotel available & parking adds to the cost but because of the location next to one of the most visited attractions in Spain it is value for money.

Right beside the parking lot for the Alhambra. GREAT location if you want to get away from the town bustle. Nice pool area. Buffet breakfast was ok, coices and quantity but quality was so-so. Night shift reception very nice, day shift was a different story. Some of the older guys were borderline rude, kids were browbeaten or not so competent. Staff at the terrace restaurant in the evenings were very pleasant and the food was really excellent. Best part of the hotel. There is a 3* pension 4 doors down with gracious staff and 15Eu less that I will try before I stay at the Alixares again. Location is great! Hotel not quite so good.

This is a big hotel. We stayed there in February 2012 and there were bus groups and family groups as well as couples. The hotel is across the road from Alhambra and a short walk downhill to the town. There is also a bus (public transport) that goes from Alhambra to the town and back if you don't want to walk. Great breakfast and bar area to relax in after a big day out.

The hotel's proximity to the Alhambra mosque is amazing since it's within walking distance; but the hotel itself is just poorly done. The hallways are dark and smelly. Parking is right across the street requiring 20 Euros' per night. I would recommend you stay in another hotel and then take the bus here for to Alhambra for the tour.

A good option for families wishing to visit the Alhambra and one of the rare hotels with a swimming pool in the area. Value for money but many of the hotel rooms, including ours, have no view at all.

Hotel is just in front of the parking of the Alhambra. Close to the hotel there is a bus stop to get to the town centre and Albacyn, it is also possible to walk down the hill to the centre (nice walk in the trees, 15 minutes). Hotel staff is hepful.

Our stay was excellent, I brought my family for a two night stay to visit the AlHambra and enjoyed it all including a very nice evening at the terrace bbq. The only thing that spoilt it was there was a mix up over ordering a taxi for five of us to return to the Railway Station (I think they ordered two cars and someone else took one of the taxis). The taxi driver had been asked to take us to the bus station. The staff were apologetic but we nearly missed our train. Nearly, but not quite so it didnt spoil our visit thankfully.

I've found this accomodation very good: the rooms are quiet and comfortable, there is a nice swimming pool on the roof which my friends and I have appreciated very much in the hot weather of Granada. We had chosen this hotel because of its position near the Alhambra, but this has revealed to be a little fault, particularly in the evening, when we had to choose between a taxi and a long walk uphill to get back to the hotel from the city centre.

In general it was a wonderfull moment. Hotel is comfortable. Employees are kind. The quality of service also. But I can't say that the hotel is charming. He is simply functional. Comfortable but functional.

This is a great hotel and its proximity to Alhambra is unbeatable. There are only 2 faults. Parking was promised on the hotel description but not available when we arrived. We had a disabled passenger. We were advised by the hotel to park in the Alhambra car park but choose to park at the side of the hotel due to the difficulties of our passenger. We got stickers each night on the car (despite the disabled sticker) TO SAY WE WOULD BE CLAMPED. The map location from venere do not print very clearly and we had to stop to ask directions.

During our stay in Granada there were several big groups of tourists in the hotel and some of those people were quite noisy during the night. In general both my wife and I liked the hotel, even though we normally prefer not to get involved into the "mass tourism" like it happened in your hotel. We have also considered that also the visit to the Alhambra was partially spoiled by th presence of too many people who were exclusively focused in taking photos, without any interest on the cultural and artistic aspects of the Alhambra. This reality caused a negative impact on us and consequently our visit to Granada was not as exciting as we were expecting.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to visit the Alhambra. It is just across the road. It was easy to find and parking is simple in the Alhambra car park (although you do have to pay 13euros a day). The hotel was very comfortable and the swimming pool was great at the end of a long morning's sightseeing. Only two complaints - one, no supervision at the pool; two, no policy of quiet after 11 pm (for example).

The hotel is RIGHT BY Alhambra. If you want to go out in the city in addition to seeing Alhambra, find another hotel. It's SO FAR from downtown and taxi's seem to get aggrivated that they have to drive up there. When looking for the hotel via car, just follow the signs to Alhambra. Don't attempt to Google Map the place because we ended up on the other side of Granada based on the Google Map. And Granada seems to have failed to label their streets on the south side of the city.

L'hôtel surplombe Cordoue. Avec un magnifique point de vue sur la ville, il est entouré de forêt. L'intérieur est aussi magnifique que son extérieur. La chambre, un peu petite et pas parfaitement insonorisée, reste très confortable et bien équipée avec du très beau marbre dans la petite salle de bain. L'accueil était très chaleureux et plein de bonne volonté (parle français pour certains). Le restaurant est aussi très bon (super point de vue sur la piscine et cordoue, délicieuses spécialités). Il est toutefois préférable d'avoir sa propre voiture pour rejoindre la ville.

Wonderful location to the Alhambra, but remember this means the hotel is at the top of the hill in relation to Granada - use the excellent bus service from outside the Alhambra to get into and back from the city. Hotel is very clean, and good value for money. We did not use the buffet (based on other comments), but did use the grill on the 4th floor - lovely views as the sun goes down, and relaxing to while away an evening, food also OK. Pool was great. There are places to eat near the hotel, but remember they follow the hours of the Alhambra, so tend to close early. Granada well worth a visit, and lovely people.

We got a great price for this 4 star hotel from venere.com. Although I think because we didn't pay a lot we got the noisiest room in the hotel which was right above reception and we would hear large groups of people talking through out the night.

The prices on Venere.com were much better than booking at the hotel itself, so definitely go that route. The hotel is right by Alhambra (the maps do not show this very well) and just up the street from the Hotel Guadalupe, which costs more and isn't actually as nice. The hotel is walking distance (down the big hill--be ready for a leisurely climb on the way back) from the city center and other sites. The hotel is excellent and the online deal here is great. The web site indicates the parking is included, but it is not. You will pay about 11 Euros per day in either the garage or Alhambra parking, but the parking is nearby.

The hotel itself is fine, but is used by large tour parties, hence the catering is institutional to say the least. We didn't want to risk our lives on the fixed price buffet, which looked like it had been incubating salmonella bugs for hours, so had the a la carte which was equally disgusting. This restaurant also shut early, no-one but us eating in there after 21:30. The locals clearly decline to use it or it would still be busy at 23:30. The next night we had a delicious meal in the parador down the road.
