Where to Stay


There are many affordable hotels in Granada. If you are on a shoe-string budget, there are many basic places of accommodation. In European standards the star ratings are not equivalent to international ratings. Anything from 1 to 4 stars treat with caution. Even the 4 star hotels are very basic. The Albaycin district is a haven for backpackers and populated with accommodation with none of the "home away from home" amenities. Prepare to be disappointed.

However the rooms are clean with just about modern toilet facilities - showers in the bath and bidets seem to be the norm.

The Hotel Los Angeles provides a reasonable rate for a basic single or double room. Breakfast is an add on but at 12 euros per person, it is best that you have breakfast at one of the many side cafes in the city. The hotel is in a quiet part of Granada at the foot of the Alhambra - approximately 5 minutes by car to the Palace. The huge pool and newly refurbished spa (not cheap) is probably the best reason to check in to this hotel. The hotel staff are friendly and the reception staff are helpful - the gentleman at the check-in was even able to give the address to the main mosque in Granada. He probably knew about it because of the controversy that it has caused.

For those with a "sky's the limit" budgetary view, The Alhambra Hotel is one of the few hotels whose international ratings could be tested. As a 5 star hotel, well, let's say, its better than the 4 star.
