The city of Granada is one of the most beautiful and fascinating in Spain.
If you enjoy whiling away the hours wandering through a city and its sights, soaking up the culture, and losing yourself in the history of a place, Granada will not disappoint. It has all the charm and the benefits of a small city so, wherever you choose to stay while you are here, you will not be far from the sights.
To make things a little easier we have grouped the city hotels into five areas:
If the Alhambra is what has drawn you to Granada then you will find a handful of great hotels, including the Parador de Granada, within easy walking distance that offer fabulous views of the city, or the monument itself. The route between the city centre and the Alhambra is an easy walk and is also very well serviced by buses and taxis.
Access from the motor way is relatively easy and well signed. So if you are coming by car this may be the area for you.

If you really want to get a feel for Granada’s Medieval Moorish past than head for the ancient bario of the Albayzín. Perched onto of the hill looking down on the city the old muslim quarter offers the most spectacular views of the Alhambra. As well as the views you will find plenty of tapas and flamenco in the Albayzín.
The area is not so easily accessible if you are driving, however, it is well serviced by taxis and buses.
If you want to base yourself in one of the numerous city centre hotels you will find that you have all the sights, shopping, and bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Getting around the city on foot, by bus or taxi is quite easy.
Just west of the centre is the district of Beiro where the train station is located. From here you have easy access the centre via Grand Vía or Calle Elvira as well as being close to the Bull Ring Plaza del Toros.
The Granada Conference Centre Palacio de los Congressos is located Zaidín and it is a short walk from there into the centre. It is also very close to the Carrefour commercial centre.
This area is also easily accessed from the A-44 motorway so you may consider it if you are driving but do not want to negotiate the city roads.
