“Lovely place, excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2012. Friendly helpful staff (explained local buses, how to get to attractions, told us about the Easter festival parades that we knew nothing about).
Lovely hotel with central courtyard and they can arrange parking in underground car park. €14/day but parking in this part of towm is a nightmare VERY narrow streets and minimal parking. You don't need a car buses are €1.20 per trip anywhere, drivers all speak bus fare English, and books of tickets bring the price lower.
Really nice room. Old style decor simple but attractive and adequate furniture. Good buffet breakfast selection (kiwi and lime marmalade is the best ever!!)
Location is in the old part of Granada on a hill opposite the Alhambra. Not the most convenient place for main attractions (i.e. Alhambra and town centre) but I'd thoroughly recommend it as you probably won't go there otherwise and it's a maze of lovely old narrow streets with small squares, restaurants, cafes and bars. Excellent view of Alhambra from the Mirador St Nicholas a few minutes walk away. Sit with a beer / sangria and enjoy!
p.s. hotel has a lift if you're not into stairs.

Room Tip: I think the top floor front room has a tiny glimpse of the Alhambra - we didn't stay in it - not...

We stayed at Santa Isabel la Real in Granada and could not have had a better situation. The hotel is in the old section of the city, and a short walk up the hill from the hotel takes you to a large park area with a spectacular view of the Alhambra. You can either find a spot on the ledge or cross the street and sit in a cafe and watch the sun set on the Alhambra. It is a lively and lovely spot in the old part of Granada. The hotel room itself was on the small side, but was beautifully appointed, and the staff could not have been nicer. The central atrium was a peacful spot in the middle of the hotel, and the small salon/library welcomed guests with comfortable couches and a tray of homemade liqueur. There is bus service to the area, so you don't have to climb the many steps and hills:)

Room Tip: Although the street-front rooms are a bit noisy, they are lighter than some of the others.

More a b and b than a hotel but lovely room, friendly service and a very good breakfast. Good position in the Albaycin, 10 minute walk down hill to the main town and a bus to come back up. Our room faced the courtyard so was quiet but had no view. Wandering round the old quarter was delightful and the views from the nearby Plaza St Nicholas were stunning. Good Moroccan restaurant close by.

A small, family run, hotel which is a really charming place to stay. Set in the heart of the Albaicin district the hotel is brilliantly situated with bars and restaurants within walking distance and Plaza St Nicolas, offering magnificent views of the Alhambra, just up the road. The centre of Granada (Plaza Nueva) is easily reached by the regular mini-bus service that stops just round the corner from the hotel. The hotel itself is beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated and furnished. The room was a very good size as was the bathroom. Rooms are set around a small enclosed courtyard which is open to the sky when the weather is warm. Breakfast was excellent; buffet style with plenty of choice. On top of all this the staff are friendly, helpful and extremely pleasant with nothing too much trouble. Why stay anywhere else?!
