"Don't stay here if you want a good night's sleep"
No idea how this gets rated as a five star hotel. We stayed in multiple four star hotels across Spain that had much nicer rooms, interiors, bed, wifi, and service. I'm literally holding this iPad over my head to get a decent signal. Sorry but it's not that hard to setup a good wifi network these days. Hotels in stone building were able to do it across Spain. And without the silly restriction of just 3 devices per room on wifi. The beds were poor quality. The rooms in the courtyard are unique but very noisy whenever the courtyard has an event or has the guitar player singing into his loud speaker (every night we were here). The bathroom doesn't have a door that closes -- just a glass partition that doesn't fully close for privacy. It's a Marriott but nothing special. I'd suggest you try one of the other more highly reviewed hotels instead. I wish we had.
"Excellent place to stay."
This hotel, located in the old historic part of Granada, is a beautiful and tasteful restoration of an old convent. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, however, perhaps coffee could be offered in the room along with the tea which is already provided. As a nice touch, chocolates are left on the pillow when the beds are turned down in the evening. The hotel has a wonderful courtyard where one can enjoy an afternoon wine surrounded by columns and listening to the gurgling fountain. The drinks here are very reasonably priced for a five star hotel. Breakfast, which is held in the restaurant adjacent to the courtyard, is excellent and well presented. All the staff that we encountered were very helpful and courteous. Another feature of the hotel is its proximity to many historical sites such as the Alhambra and Generalife, Albayzin and many wonderful local eateries where the tapas is free when you buy a drink. Overall a great place to stay.
"Modern hotel in heart of Granada"
Very much enjoyed our two-night stay in this hotel that used to be a monastery. It retains that old-world charm but has all the amenities and upgrades of a modern hotel. There is a steam room and sauna downstairs near the fitness room - very cool. And the breakfast spread is lovely. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and professional. Definitely a great home base for your stay in Granada.
"My First Stay in a Convent"
Sounds silly but this conversion of an old convent into a luxury hotel is so well done that you have no hesitation in staying. The rooms for my part felt a little compact for a normal Marriott hotel and a little dark, but then you have the history and the location. The rooms were very quite with double glazed windows and shutters. The central courtyard of the hotel provides a backdrop for breakfast dining and lunch venues. You can wander around the courtyard and view numerous grave markers from previous Sisters who were associated with the convent in bygone years. The hotel was very central to the main city square and the historical cathedral along with all the cafe lined squares and tourist shops. A great location from which to explore The Alhambra and surrounding attractions. The breakfast offering was of a reasonable standard but the staff were not geared up to a rush of people travelling on a bus trip all wanting to be served at the same time. The staff were pleasant and tried their hardest to accommodate the travellers needs given the constraints they were working under. All in all a plesant stay .
"A pleasant stay in the Convent."
We had a lovely two night stay at this hotel, which was a good base for our visit to Granada. The location is very convenient and the transformation of this Convent building into a hotel has been very well done, preserving the best of the old heritage in the courtyard. This hotel has very good facilities as would be expected of a highly rated establishment. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The polished wood floor, although good for cleaning, is a little noisy and creaky. A minor point was that there was only tea bags, and no coffee, with the in room electric jug. The bathroom is of a good size but with a step in shower in the bath, which is a problem now for us at our age. The exhaust fan did not operate and as a consequence the bathroom misted up when showering. The breakfast was a good start to the day with plenty of choice for every palate. The breakfast area with two person tables is a little small when a Coach tour departs early. We found the standard of service to be very good throughout the hotel. The reception and bar/dinning staff, in particular, were welcoming, helpful and attentive. Certainly a memorable stay and recommended.
