I love to stay in special places but many of Spain's paradors are quite a distance from where we were going. However, when it came to Granada, the parador was virtually right AT the Alhambra. I made reservations several months to guaranty we would be able to get a room. And, what a room!! We upgraded to a suite which was on 2 floors and had windows overlooking Generalife and more. The parador's restaurant was lovely as were the grounds. The staff were great at providing recommendations and getting us taxis. Bottom line: it was a wonderful experience and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If it's in your budget, I highly recommend booking a suite.

Dear Nancy,

Firstly we wish thank the election of the Parador for your stay in Granada. Also many thanks for the kind review. We are very glad to read that your Experience here has been so pleasant. We call that room "The tower of the Sunrise". It is one of the higest places of the Alhambra complex and has views over 360º.
Your comment is motivating for the staff.
We hope to welcome you again. Best regards.

A very lovely hotel in a lovely area. The reluctance to provide a higher rating has to do with the cost and what you get for that cost. We stayed in excellent hotels during your trip--in Madrid, Seville, Barcelona, and here in Granada. The other places were very high quality, very good with service--and much much less expensive. This Parador's room was well-designed and comfortable and dining on the patio was lovely. The setting and views are incomparable. Service was fine; we had no special requests.

Having said that, people NOT staying here pretty much have access to just about everything but the guestroom areas. You can eat in the dining room or on the patio as a non-guest; you can drink in the bar; you can wander the gardens on the property (just off the patio); you can come in and see the chapel. All you can't do, really, is enter the guestroom areas.

Rooms don't have balconies (though there are a few chairs for guests in an area overlooking the hotel garden with a great view). There is no pool. So if you want to spend a significant amount of money to have a room that is very nice but has no unique amenities this is the place. Of course, one is presumably in Granada to be out and about, and clearly the selling point is the fact that this is a historical building and it is the only hotel on the the grounds of the Alhambra (to be clear, you still must purchase tickets to visit the Alhambra--staying at the hotel doesn't matter).

In hindsight, especially since it's possible to spend at least one if not two days wandering the actual town of Granada, I would have stayed at a cheaper hotel and had lunch on the Parador patio and checked out all the sights on the grounds.

Room Tip: If you go, try to get a room on the highest floor, in order to maximize the view.

Dear CheeseInBarcelona,

Firstly we thank the election of the Parador for your stay in Granada. Also many thanks for sharing this review and the positive remarks pointed out. Respect to the high cost of the rates it is neccesary to explain that the location of the hotel inside a monumental site imply higher expenses than usual in all the áreas. On the other hand many guest think that stay inside the Alhambra at least one in life is a unique experience.

Best regards.

The cost of staying at the Parador in Granada was exorbitant (we paid 400€ per night) but we chalked it up to part of the experience. First of all, the parador itself is beautiful with lovely gardens, an indoor atria with a fountain, and a nice restaurant. And it was so convenient for visiting the Alhambra (on the other hand, it was a bit of a hike to visit the main part of the city since you’re located at the top of a significant hill but walking downhill was manageable and happily the C3 bus goes most of the way up the hill). Our room was very comfortable so no complaints. The only mistake I probably made was pre-paying for breakfast at 21€ per person – it was great for the day we visited the Alhambra but we didn’t really need it for our second morning. All in all, I would recommend staying here if your budget allows.

Happy we stayed at this place. It is a real find in what some would say is an out of the way location. Staff was friendly and efficient, and the rooms are spacious and well maintained. Definitely recommend staying here when traveling.

The combination of superb staff and historic location makes this hotel more than just a stay - it is an experience. The view from our room: overlooking gardens in full bloom with snow capped mountains in the background...it never got old. The room itself was furnished more plainly (we prefer this sleeker non-fussy look) and had nice touches such as fresh flowers,turn down service that replaced towels, and a bathroom with excellent jets and water pressure. Highly recommend the restaurant (the local specialities tasting menu gave us new dishes to explore) and had excellent service. The views in every direction in every lighting off the terrance made our stay extraordinary. The staff was on point with recommendations and always helpful and friendly.
