You can't beat the location of this quaint little hotel. The staff was super friendly and provided wonderful service. Cozy charming rooms with a double bed, but the ambience was worth it! The food was very good.

The benefit in staying at Hotel America is that it gave me the opportunity as a solo female traveler to safely explore the Alhambra after hours when the air was cooler and there were no crowds. It is right next to the Parador, a very high end hotel with a beautiful bar and

Wonderful place right in the Alhambra walls. Safe, comfortable and the staff made me feel very cared for. Everything was taken care of for me. Dinner in the open courtyard was very peaceful after a long day of traveling. Breakfast was great and a late snack was perfect. At the

The hotel room was ok but it wasn't very clean. There were hairs on the pillows before we had slept on them. The shower was placed very strangely above the bath so that the screen didn't prevent it from wetting the room. The bathroom was sopping after each shower. It is well

This is a lovely old fashioned hotel. At first it seems you are stepping back in time, but it is comfortable and there is air conditioning in the rooms. We loved the atmosphere and the service was very good as well. The continental breakfast is quite complete but you can order

Comfy beds, lovely room!

Which rooms are on the top floor?
GMRJCD, I'm sorry, I don't know the numbers of the rooms on the top floor (I don't even remember our room number!). But I'm sure you can ask on-line or by phone and they can tell you. We were on the top floor, come to think of it, overlooking the interior courtyard/restaurant. Across the way, we could see other rooms on the same level that were larger and that had full balconies.

Hi. We stayed at Hotel America for two nights in October. It is walkable to town - it doesn't take long, but it is a little steep coming back up! There are lots of taxis though and they are fairly cheap, if you are just going down into the city. We walked down and got a taxi back both evenings, as it's definitely easier to do that than to drive, as it is tricky to navigate around Granada.

Where do you leave your car when you come to this hotel? Is there any free parking?
Cars are parked in the main Alhambra carpark at the bottom of the hill, you will receive a discount when you leave by showing your receipt from the hotel. You can drive up to the hotel when you arrive to drop off your bags. (look out for pedestrians!) Just explain to the security people that you are staying at Hotel America and they will point you in the right direction - you will need a smidgen of spanish for this.

Are there hair dryers in the bathrooms?
To the best of our recollection, there was a hair dryer. My wife did not take a dryer with her on our trip, and can't recall not having one in any of our hotels..

"we liked our premium double room with views, budget allowing, maybe spring for the Superior double room with or without terrace."
"Bigger rooms have private balconies."
"As has been pointed out in previous reviews there is no lift so if one is handicapped or elderly a ground floor room would be advisable."
"If driving book the valet parking."
"Request the top floor room with a view"
