Hotel Las Almenas
Ranked #46 of 122 Hotels in Granada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2012

The first thing that comes to mind about this hotel is just what great value for money it is. It isn't the most swish place we stayed at during our Spain trip, and to my irritation, our rooms were not ready until past 3pm (and we got no apology, just a shrug from the owner, "we're very busy, you know"), but the sheer value and good location makes you forget all that.
Las Almenas is bang in the middle of one of Granada's busiest roads. Take the shuttle bus from the airport, it's cheap and drops you right at the hotel doorstep - you don't need to take a cab! The hotel is surrounded by supermarkets, stores and cafes, so you have plenty of options for eating breakfast, even dinner, just a walk away, and I echo other TA reviewers who suggested Lizzeran, just 2 minutes walk away - great tapas and drinks at amazing prices. We even ate breakfast here - croissant, sandwiches, juice and coffee for very little. The hotel also has its own restaurant/bar, which we didn't get around to using.
The hotel rooms are comfortable and fairly spacious. The beds are decent, firm matresses but comfy. The aircon is effective, and the bathroom decent too, with a good shower. Safe, hairdryer, all there. Blackout blinds over the windows block out all light - great for those wanting to lie in. No tea/coffee maker in the room though - in my book that's a major minus as I can't function without my tea mornings & evenings. No fridge either. Inward facing room, so no noise that seemed to bother other reviewers, though the view was rather drab.
The Cathedral and Royal Chapel is a short walk away, and the Alhambra is a short bus ride away. The number 30 bus, as I recall. Taxis are very cheap too. This is an excellent location for exploring the city, and the bigger stores (Zara,etc) not too far a walk away.
Some of the reception's info was incorrect, however - he told us the airport bus was coming to the stop at 8.45 that morning. We hurtled there only to discover after a 30 min wait that there was no 8.45 bus that day! Had to hastily grab a taxi to rush to the airport. The check in process is rather slow and tedious, and they seem to prefer cash as room payment.
No complaints about anything else. As I said, great value overrules all else.
I noticed that all these 'hit' hotels on TA advertise the fact rather prominently at their receptions. TA is giving them lots of business!

Room Tip: If you are the sort that can't stand noise from a busy thoroughfare, pick a room facing the inne...

We could not have picked a better hotel. Very helpful and caring staff and the owners tried their best to assist us while we were searching for lost luggage .Fully rennovated hotel which remindes of a modern Riad in Morrocco. Rooms where very spacious and clean. Las Almenas located within short walking distance to city centre, many sites and shopping. Airport shuttle drops you off /picks you up just a few steps from the hotel.
We had a room to the side of the hotel, so noise was not an issue.
Wouldl definitely come back and stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms to the side of back of the building which are quieter

Stayed at this hotel 7th to 9th July 2012
We had a room on the side of the hotel and was very quiet, the room itself was clean and spacious.
Jose and staff could not do anything more to have made our stay any better, Jose does speak good English and gave us plenty of good info and advice on visiting the city. For secure hotel car parking book in advance. We were able to leave luggage and car at hotel after checking out until we were ready to leave Granada.
Food is available in the restaurant attached to the hotel.
This hotel was well placed for most of the tourist attractions.
We will certainly use again when going back to Granada.

Room Tip: We had room 202 on the side of the hotel and was very quiet.

Booked this based on the good reviews and central position. We were very disappointed and inspite of the cheap price of 45 euros would not stay here again.

The TRAFFIC is worse than London and never stops. What with a front room and terrible double glazing the noise was constant.

Checking in was slow and awkward and he forgot to take my passport number so called my room at 00.45 to ask me for it!

When paying in cash on checkout I was given the change in 20 cent bits!

Next time I will stay up in the Albacin area away from the traffic and pollution which dominates this city unfortunately.

This is a very nice hotel, clean, comfortable, comfy bed. Downside is no internet in rooms, I really hate having to go sit in a lobby to check and respond to emails.
The family is very nice and helpful, you need to have spanish.
Would help all hotels if they put directions or suggestions on how to get to them on their web pages, directionsbfrom airport, train, bus station...
