In-room safe: The safe was different from any hotel safe Ive ever encountered. The basic idea is that you set the code once and then turn a lever every time you want to lock the safe. Typing in the code UNLOCKS the safe. So if you are in the habit of typing in a code to lock the safe, and retyping it to unlock, what you will really be doing is leaving it unlocked every time.

Parking: They have valet parking. You have to follow the instructions on their website to get to the hotel - they are on a restricted road that's for taxis/buses only that direction...but according to them you're allowed to drive the half block to the hotel. Then they'll park it for you. It was 21.50 euros per night.

Breakfast: Continental which included juice, coffee, fruit, breads, yogurt, custard, and cheeses and cured meats. There were small (4-7 euros) upcharges if you wanted something cooked from the kitchen but we were fine with the continental choices. It was a buffet you tell the waiter of your hot choices.

Just stayed there this week. Overall the stay was good. Was upgraded to a "junior suite" although technically it's a full suite with a separate living room.

For Platinum, there is a choice of continental breakfast or points. And you can choose a $10 credit or points for amenity. I think you get two choices because it's an autograph hotel without lounge.

The restaurant menu actually looked good and I might've tried it if I had more time in Granada, but I found an incredible local restaurant instead...

The breakfast selection is decent. You can also pay for hot items, which were ~ 5-8 EUR. I noticed that there were two menus, one labeled for Platinum. Only the menu for Platinum had the prices listed, so I wonder if the regular buffet included the hot items and they were only offering continental breakfast for Platinum?

I am a Lifetime Titanium member and i stayed here Sept 6 to 8 2019 with my wife and 11 month old baby.

Hotel is both lovely, and a bit basic at the same time. The employees are very friendly and the location is very central in "downtown" Granada.

Booked a standard king room for 163 EUR per night (including taxes). Was upgraded to a Junior Suite in the old part of the hotel. However, we have our crawling / standing 11 month old and the room had a big step down to get into the room and then a sunken bedroom so it didn't work for us as the little one would be constantly bonking her head. They showed me two other rooms and we settled on a suite on the 4th floor in the newer part of the hotel. Although I was bummed to not be in the old section, this was actually more convenient as the elevator went straight from lobby to our floor without having to push a stroller over cobbled pathways.

I think the second room was also a Junior Suite but this one had a completely separate living room which was fantastic with the baby. It also had a pull out sofabed.

Breakfast was exactly as described by others. Cold items are free for Platinum / Titanium and you can order hot egg dishes (and other items) from the hot menu for 4 EUR to 7 EUR per item. There was no hot buffet area when we were there.

Buffet was pretty good and beautifully presented. But was very carb heavy and sadly most of the yogurt was sweetened :-(

Overall we enjoyed our stay, the room worked well for us and the location was fantastic for this two night visit to Granada.

No special extra treats or additional amenities to recognize Titanium elites were left in our room.

BTW, my overall sense is that with a modest overhaul, this property could be a Luxury Collection. Bedding, furniture, fixtures was lower quality but could easily be upgraded. The property is just so pretty (see photos).


Junior Suite bedroom - room 413

Junior suite bathroom - good size tub and shower.

Stayed here last week and had a good experience. Redeemed points for a standard King room on the first floor (American second floor) overlooking the main road but the windows were nicely soundproofed. Breakfast was EUR22 per person and included a nice cold buffet and choice of hot item. Had a good meal at the restaurant for dinner one night as well.
