TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Alixares Granada
Amazing location just up the road from the Alhambra ticket office. The hotel does a good buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the swimming pool is good place to cool off. The check-in staff were very helpful and provided information on buses and Alhambra. The only criticism that I have was that we had to unplug the fridge to find an electrical socket that we could use. Free Wi-Fi available in the lobby.

Haven't watched a movie or a television program (apart from an afternoon of soccer in Salamanca) since we left, so our world is all about walking, looking, talking, reading, planning the next stage, buying tickets, writing...and eating and drinking. We took up residence in a riverside restaurant called La Tinaja (the earthenware jug). Amazing food, beautifully plated. This is where we first tried the ...
... My host mom, Ana, didn't speak a word of English. I could really tell how much I improved when I was talking with her about the weather, food, and all things Granaino. My favorite lesson in Spanish was the day we learned about Granaino slang, accent, and cuss words. They don't pronounce their d's here, and they swallow their final s's. Hopefully I didn't pick that up too much, because American Spanish speakers have a hard time understanding people from Andalusia. ...
... the remnants of lunch with children running around playing games that at times made me nervous about them darting in front of the car. The lanes would wind their way to a small piazza that once you had passed through would turn left or right around a tight bend leading down another small lane way, but my concerns were ill founded, as we turned the last bend we came upon our hotel which is located at the base of the "La Alhambra". The hotel is called ...
I didn't know that granada is Spanish for pomegranate. Irrelevant to this story, but new to me.
Granada is best known for the Alhambra, but tickets are in demand, so we were visiting later in the day as there is timed entrance to the Nasrid Palaces part ...
