Travelers' Choice
The hotel Occidental Granada 4* (part of Barcelo Hotel Group) is located in one of the best areas of the city, at easy reach from Recogidas Street which links the hotel with Granada city center. In addition, it is a few metres away from the brand-new underground in the city. Its perfect location makes this property the best choice for those who aim at discovering the city by foot. It is 10-minute walking from the old town or the Cathedral, which implies walking across one of the main streets which hold great number of shops and bars. Its location also implies avoiding one of the most common problems of the city which is the traffic jams. The hotel is located within the well-known Zone 1 of the city which is theh preferred one for those who visit Granada for business reasons. A few metres away from Occidental Granada one can easily get to the Congress and Exhibitions Center and Science Center, which is a cultural reference in Andalucia. Also, the high way road which connects Granada with Sierra Nevada and, Tropical Coast (both half an hour driving) and the International Airport (just 20-minute driving) is a few metres away.

A good hotel about a ten minute walk from the Plaza de Reyes Catolicos, and around the corner from the Metro tram station (if you are arriving by train). Seems very popular with families. Laundromat and nice supermarket (Supersol) about a block away. Major complaint is that the housekeeping staff uses an excessive amount of "air freshener" (ambientador); after airing out the room we asked them to not spray, and it was fine.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed here on a short work trip which I visited twice during my travels. Situated just a few minutes walk away from the busy centre. So much quieter than some hotels, which means you can get a good night's sleep. A great hotel designed with functionality in mind. Spacious bathroom with showers and bath and lots of room to put toiletries. Also has a good powerfull hairdryer too - fabulous! It has a nice little bar/restaurant attached which does great tapas and where the staff are super cheerful and friendly - a great place to chill or catch up on a bit of work. Great location - Recogidos metro station is at the end of Calle Alhamar (about 1 minute walk) There is a supermarket on the opposite side of the street and if you arrive late or on Sunday evening as I did, there are a couple of minimarkets a few minuits walk away if you need supplies - unusual in Spain. Highly recommended!

It's just nice, clean and comfortable. Ever since we tried it for the 1st time, we have stuck with it and haven't been to any other hotels in Granada. The bed is fantastic, we always have a great sleep.

Excellent hotel with 20 min walk from the city center and 30 minute drive from the Granada airport. Family room is large to host a family of 4. Very helpful staff and continental breakfast was good. 15 minute taxi ride to the Alhambra.I recommend taking taxi to Alhambra and walking back from Alhambra to the city center. It's totally worth it.
