The hosting suggested we park our car outside the town and that is really helpful. Driving in the old city of Granada should be a big task. We took a taxi from our parking lot to this hotel which we reserved on booking. The rooms are really cozy and nice. The decoration are pretty special, of course the views outside... More

I wanted to love this B&B, and I did love parts of it. The views of the Alhambra are extraordinary, the rooms were beautiful, and the beds were comfortable. I would return here with a small, light bag if the sewage smell is addressed. As other reviewers have mentioned, my room on the top floor had a strong scent sewage... More

I've written this after reading the lone 3 star review below, which I find a bit perplexing under the circumstances. Solar Montes Claros is in essence a house in the old, original part of Granada - El Albayzin - that has been transformed into a wonderful oasis of calm for guests, and yet managed to retain an air of authenticity....

If you want the authentic Granada experience with amazing views of the Alhambra Palace then I could not recommend more highly. However, you must be physically fit as just to get to the front door from the road is up a steep incline and thirty odd steps. We were on the top floor in the 'Saba Room' which is on... More

This is a hard review for me to write after seeing all the 5-star reviews. And, I don't want to come off as a snobby traveler - but I feel a need to share our experience. First, no question, if having a view out of your window to see the Alhambra (especially at night) is important -- this is the... More

We booked two rooms in August and had a fantastic stay, amazingly decorated and gave the holiday an authentic feel whilst visiting the Alhambra. On our arrival to Granada we followed the precise directions to the over night stay car park. We phoned to say we had arrived and within minutes a taxi came to take us to the hotel.... More

My trip was much more personal and special staying in a beautiful home. The rooms are large and decor are imbued with Moorish charm and intrigue, making the stay very special and very memorable.

The first thing that surprised me about this little paradise was their extremely good service, from the moment I made my booking.

This place is astoundingly beautiful - the garden, the rooms, the view (The Alhambra). Gorgeously designed room and bathroom with a distinctly Spanish/Moorish feel. Brilliantly located at the top of the Albayzin, close to the fabulous Sacremonte district. Although I would caution people with mobility issues - there are a few stairs to negotiate. Get the transfer they offer and... More
