Charming hotel at the feet of the Alhambra. We had the opportunity to stay at this small hotel right in Albaicín during our trip to Granada, and the truth is we have been recommending it to our family since then.
The location can simply not be better: from the hotel terrace you have one of the best views of the city, nothing less than the Alhambra. Inside, the hotel is lovely, with a décor that is very "Granada", a mix of Arab and Christian elements.
Some of the rooms, though, are quite small, especially the only double-room they have. The others are en suite and frankly are another matter.
Located within the grounds of the Alhambra (You must show your reservation to get through with the car) this former Franciscan convent is a delight: with very modern rooms in a beautifully restored historic building. The views of the Generalife and the gardens themselves are enjoyable. The setting is unique and particularly magical; so we have to remind ourselves at times that we are still within the grounds of the Alhambra.
Last summer, we spent a week near Granada, Spain. I wanted to visit Andalucia, and Granada in particular. For our stay, we decided to find a holiday home which was nearby, and found this: a detached cottage located in a beautiful rural setting with a swimming pool and a special party room literally carved in rock. Just fabulous.
