How to Get There
We booked a two night stay with 2 other couples using a deal on Very Chic. Checking in was fine and the reception staff very polite and friendly. We had 2 rooms on the 1st floor and we had a room on the third. Our room was certainly not at the same standard as the other 2 which were superior rooms as was stated in our deal.
We would have just 'made do' with it if it wasn't so unbearably hot. No working air con, no views as no windows. Even the member of staff struggled to open the velux type ceiling windows to get some air in. We did ask to move at this point and were met with a no, the room will cool in 30 mins and a hurried rude retreat. No sorry, no acknowledgement of the difference in our room to our friends nothing!
We travel a lot and stay in many hotels and my husband was no way going to try to sleep in this sauna of a room. He went back to reception and saw a different man who then offered us a room change to room 201. What a difference! But even this room was a little shabby but nothing too inconvenient and at least we had a bathroom and not have to use a sink in a cupboard as was in attic room. Not sure I like the open plan no doors and see through glass doors/walls in the toilet, shower bath areas though! The safe did not work and although we were advised it would be reset for us it wasn't! The bed was very comfortable and the room was cleaned daily and we enjoyed the rest of our stay. The hotel is lovely the communal areas are beautiful with lots of nice sitting areas and lovely friendly waiters and a pretty courtyard garden. The included breakfast although not extensive in choice was OK (but not sure I would pay the normal cost with so many places to choose from nearby) for us as we don't eat too much or want hot food. The spa was another disappointment, I was then only one of our group who used the included access. It was dark, scruffy, smelly and not particularly clean with many chipped and broken tiles, rusty lockers etc. The sauna was OK but again on asking for a towel was greeted by a rude unhelpful lady who did eventually locate one for me. Not a pleasant experience and certainly not one I would pay for!
With a little bit of work in some areas it could be an excellent hotel in an excellent location.
We only stayed for one night. Room was very comfortable with a contemporary feel. Comfy beds, quiet room even though it was on the street side. Great breakfast. We really liked everything about this small hotel. I believe the restaurant to be very good, even though we didn’t try it, as it was fully booked.
Hotel location and standard is perfectly fine. Very negative, the hotel offered valet parking for 22 EUR per night, brought back the car damaged, refused all responsibility on that. Small insurance thing, probably less than a 100 EUR case, no support, not even called back. We don’t care attitude, never again.
Situated in the city centre, a classy and stylish hotel with elegant furniture, amazing bathrooms that feature even a bidet, an hygienic tool much appreciated by Italians and almost unknown to the majority of people, kind staff that can speak good English, there is only one problem that nearly spoiled our staying: the massage centre is closed during the weekend and only a mediocre spa is available to guests. You must book in advance if you want to enjoy a massage or a face treatment and only from Monday to Friday.
But I still recommend it for an amazing staying in Granada.
We booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews but have to say was disappointed. It’s not a cheap hotel but we were prepared to pay extra for central location and facilities such as a spa. The hotel was further out than expected. It’s a nice hotel in a lovely building with good decor. Valet parking is available at £20 a day. The staff on reception weren’t overly helpful or attentive. The rooms are nice and feel luxurious but there was a problem with the heating in ours - it was extremely hot meaning we had to keep the window open the whole time making it noisy and very cold overnight. We spoke to reception each morning but nothing was done. As it was a weekend the streets were noisy so we didn’t sleep well.
Breakfast is £14 each and not really worth it. They don’t serve hot breakfast except eggs, so wouldn’t expect to pay so much for a continental breakfast. My husband only drank coffee and we were charged the same.
We usually book a hotel with a spa. Each time we went down to the spa it was closed, despite apparently going in opening hours. Again we asked at reception who just informed us it should be open.
Overall, when you pay £400 to stay somewhere, I usually expect better. It’s not a bad hotel, just not worth it’s price.
