The situation in the center of the city is excellent. Very good reception with knowledgable receptionist. They can book and organise visits, book restaurants and advise you on anything. Rooms clean and modern. Good breakfast with healthy options for diet conscious people. Reasonable price.

This is a quality hotel set in a great location . You can drive to the hotel and the staff will park your car nearby . We had a premier room in the courtyard well equipped and quiet . The courtyard which is the setting for outside dining is gorgeous. Staff were all pleasant and helpful .

We spent a day at this hotel, primarily to visit Alhambra. Hotel is on Gran Via Street, within walking distance from number of restaurants and attractions. We used the taxi to go to Alhambra, which was about 5 euros. We were upgraded to a bigger room in the older part of the building. Consistent with Autograph hotels, they offered continental...

I was there for holiday on a private tour. Room was a superior room and we found it dark inside. As I just arrived and has with me Eur (500 note) I needed to have them change into smaller notes so I can spend it. To my surprise, the counter does not provide this service of breaking up bigger note...

Dear Ben Y Thank you for taking the time to write your review after your stay with us. We are really sorry your expectations about our hotel were not met. Certainly some times is not possible to break a note of 500 euros, specially if it is in small notes of 10 or 20 euros, though we do all we...

The AC Palacio hotel was a wonderful place to stay during my recent trip to Granada. My room, with free wifi, was extremely comfortable, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The older part of the hotel (with the courtyard) was striking, and I used the small exercise room during my stay. (It had only two bikes and a treadmill,...

Our stay didn't get off to a great start, I found it very difficult to get to the hotel by car due to the one way system. I then had to park in a very tight garage behind the hotel. If possible, don't come to this hotel by car! However our stay at the hotel helped unwind this stress. We...

The hotel is extremely conveniently located, very central: about a minute from the Cathedral and Capilla Real, the winding streets of the Albaicin, the buses in Plaza Nueva and just about every other attraction in the city. The Alhambra's a 20min or so walk by one of the several (steepish) routes up the hillside. We had a most beautiful room...

The Autograph Collection hotels are an upper tier Marriott brand and this hotel, which is built around a former convent, is lovely with a wonderful inner courtyard for drinks or a light lunch. It is located near the Cathedral on a main street, Gran Via de Colon, but our room was quiet and well appointed. Staff was extremely well trained...

I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but never one with as beautiful courtyards and overall ambiance as the Palacio de Santa Paula. Afternoon drinks in the courtyard were fabulous and the staff were so great. The hotel is centrally located and easy walking distance to most things. Would stay here again if I ever get the chance.

Thank Kwmeier
