Fonda Sanchez is the perfect location in Granada, probably 200m away from the main cathedral, but on a quiet and out of the way plaza. The small balcony that opens up on to the plaza, made for perfect procession watching during Semana Santa, as one of the processions starts and ends from the cathedral across from the hostel. The owner...

Room 308 . Nice Juliette balcony overlooking a square with shops/bars and look out to the church. Quiet central position. Nice tiled entry, friendly efficient check in. Our room although not big appeared to be more spacious due to the high double doors/Windows and ceiling. Aircon, older style tv, double bed (mattress ok although pretty firm!, a cupboard and a...

I really don't understand all the positive feedback on this place...maybe we were just in the wrong room... We were a couple on a road trip travelling around Spain, and we looked for a cheap but comfy place to stay few days to visit the city. Ok ,It was a last minute reservation because of a last minute issue... but...

This hostal is very close to great places to eat and visit, old and more modern Granada, shopping places, cultural venues and historical buildings. The hostal is very clean, family-owned and managed, on a second floor -which we got confused about since we asked for a room in the first floor and in Europe that doesn't mean ground floor-, it...

The location is good but this is also the main problem for us: noise from the students in the square and bars below. Also the truck comes to collect glass rubbish very early. Having said that, the room is clean and everything works (although the wifi drops out regularly) and it is good value.

We were in Granada for 3 nights and we needed something close to the center that was not really expensive. This hostel turned out to be the perfect place. Great location - situated at one of the most beautiful squares in Granada and around 5-6 minutes by foot (at most) from the Cathedral and the Albayzin. The room was everything...

We stayed here last week (beginning of april) and were very happy with it. Excellent central location - picturesque but also practical. Very friendly owners. There wasn't much space to move around the room but that suited us as we only needed a place to crash at night really, had a double bed, balcony looking onto nice square and the...

Very nice accomodation situated near one of their large universities. 10 minute walk to the bus station and very close to the Granada Cathedral as well. Owner was very nice and was able to accomodate our needs. Overall : Very good value for money! Basic rooms but good location

I stayed in a single room at Fonda Sanchez 2 nights in September 09. The hotel is located in the middle of the city center, only 2 minutes walk to the cathedral and the famous arabic marked. When you book the room they ask for the estimated arrival time, and upon arrival you have to ring a doorbell and trust...

We spent 3 nights here on a short break to Granada. The hostel is basic (the rooms do not look anything like those on the website though - the decor is a lot more outdated!) however the room had everything we needed and the bathroom was very clean. You cannot take room keys out with you but there is a...

“If you want to stay there, ask for a quite room wich is not located to the place with the church...if it s not possible and you are on a budget have a look on Airbnb there are better options !”

“Ask for a room with a bathroom inside, and there are some rooms with a view to the street and some with a view to an inner terrace. The ones to the street are a little noisier but more entertaining, the ones to the terrace are quieter so it depends on what you want. Prices are wonderful!”

“Ask for a room with a view to the Plaza de la Universidad as this way you will get a view to the lovely Parroquia de los Santos Justo y Pastor”
