Granada Palace is an elegant four-star hotel with an edge, the result of the fusion of Moorish architecture with contemporary design. With views over Alhambra city to one side and the Sierra Nevada mountains on the other, the hotel boasts a location as dreamy as its décor.
There are a handful of ways to kick back enjoy yourself here. Spend the day unwinding on the sun terrace, by the outdoor pool, from the comfort of a lounger. If indoor relaxation is more your style, while away an afternoon at the spa, making the most of the hydrotherapies on offer or luxuriating in the hammam.
And when it’s time to venture out, you’ll find yourself in the home of flamenco, so don’t miss a chance to watch this impressive dance in action. Granada’s old Muslim quarter, Albayzín – a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site – lures with cobblestone streets and impressive architecture, making it a perfect destination to tick off your must-see list.
How to Get There
Spent a week at the Granada Palace Hotel, and would certainly stay there again if coming back to Granada. Of course the hotel isn't in Granada itself, and a car is useful but the location is very quiet, and our room had good views. We stayed in a 'Junior Suite' and the space was huge (add a small kitchen area and I've seen much smaller studio flats!) The beds were very comfortable (we had two doubles!), and a good sizes bathroom (with a separate shower as well). The only negatives with the room (& elsewhere in the hotel) is that the decor looked a little faded, and perhaps could do with an update. However it is very clean indeed.
We only ate breakfast in the hotel, but this was an excellent meal with a wide range of food & drinks available (both hot & cold food).
The location of the hotel is not bad as there is an excellent supermarket about 3 minutes walk away.
One gripe - the hotel has a huge underground car park, but they charge 9.90 euros per night to use it. Mean, we thought.
Large room, suite in fact, best room we can remember for a long time. Lovely and clean, large bathroom with double spa bath, separate shower.
Staff helpful, especially in cafe/atrium restaurant. Food there was lovely, great selection. Drinks reasonable for a hotel. Tapas and Italian restaurants within the hotel complex. Bus stop outside hotel for Granada every half an hour, only €1:50 each way and spot on time, takes quarter of an hour into centre of Granada.
Balcony was very small. Limited outdoor seating and, bar one bench, all in the shade. Lots of indoor seating choice.
Only 10 minutes drive from La Alhambra and no need to go through centre of Granada. Underground car park, whilst not cheap. Secure.
Very nice hotel. Shared a junior suite with a friend and am happy to note it was very clean, very spacious and quite lovely. Nothing much to complain about here. They offer free breakfast in the morning and it’s your typical fare. This was our third hotel in our Southern Spain trip and the breakfast typically consists of eggs over easy, some type of sausage, tomato with cheese, bacon, an assortment of breads and pastries, coffee, tea, and juice. It was just okay. But I’m also used to huge American breakfasts with pancakes, waffles, etc.
Grounds were nice and well maintained. Beautiful pool that we couldn’t go in because we went during the off season. Parking is about 10 euros a day.
The only bad thing I could even say is that it’s a ways from the action of the city. We didn’t want to drive into the city because we aren’t used to the streets so we had to Uber to most of the places we wanted to go with got to be a bit pricey.
Very nice hotel situated half an our from the ski resort in Sierra Nevada, very large rooms, perfectly clean, very friendly staff, helpful and attendent, nice bar and restaurang in the hotel, much value for the money! If you’ll get a double room on the the top floor it comes with an amasing terass!
Lovely hotel on the outskirts of Granada, great spacious rooms, excellent beds, brilliant bathroom with shower and jaccuzzi, stunning views into the mountains, and perfectly placed for the Alhambra Palace. One problem for us the restaurant did not open until 8.00pm which was far too late for us to eat, however there is a bar with basic food available much earlier.
