We have met the manager once at the check-in, when she suggested to use their preferred travel agency and mentioned they have a spa (outsourced and cash payment only). The two hotel staff that we had available (Olga and Miguel) did the best job within their knowledge and projected a very caring attitude, providing us with comfort. NOISE Providing the...

As this is now the fourth entry you have made about the Hotel on Trip Advisor—each becoming more and more grave, I must say that I’m sorry you are offended with our rendition of your stay (as per my previous Management Response). I must also say that we don’t condone cyber-bullying and I feel that your repeated posts after I...

We stayed at La Bocona December 26 to 29th 2011, so meant to write this review earlier. The hotel is a beautifully restored colonial house in downtown Granada. Since the hotel was full, they relocated us to a highly recommended, very comfortable secluded apartment just down the street. The staff was so friendly with us, every morning we felt like...

La Bacona is a wonderful Spanish colonial home that has been converted to a six room hotel. The owner has maintained the historical Spanish charm of the hotel. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. There are two courtyards. One contains the pool. A full breakfast is included in the price. The staff is excellent. There is also a...

Our group of 5 people were really lucky to stay at this amazing property located in the historic center of Granada. This is a beautiful 19th century mansion converted into small, boutique style, very chic hotel with only 6 beautiful, nicely decorated rooms.

Beautifully restored colonial treasure in the heart of Granada, a block from the main square. The Hotel was beautiful and immaculately appointed minimalist with authentic era antiques. It has a figure 8 layout with the rooms surrounding two courtyards one which is a garden and the other which has a pool.
