Travel Blogs from Granada
The drive to Granada from Seville is destined to be uneventful. It is a three hour drive and we have decided that there should be no detours. Whilst we are not particularly following our "Back Roads of Spain" book of driving itineraries, it has come in handy when our original planned route has crossed over into their highly regarded digressions …
... Spain for 700 yrs (until 1400s). The palace was a fascinating contrast to the other palaces and castles we have toured this summer. We are now headed to the airport. We will say "adios" to Spain and arrive in Switzerland (our last country) late this evening. - ...
... who wished to recreate paradise in Granada. The centrepiece of the Alhambra is the Nasrid Palaces (timed entry to get in, and don’t miss your entry time, or forget going in!). Built for Granada’s Muslim rulers in their 13th to 15th century heyday, there are 3 palaces from different periods, with the Patio of the Lions and Patio of the Myrtles dividing them. You can almost picture the sultans laying back relaxing being fanned by their harem. ...
... kitchen. It was a bit messy, with food crumbs everywhere and splatter stains all over the walls. We just rewashed everything before we used it. It was ok, we weren't too bothered.

I asked him. 'Nope!' He replied. Apparently there were too many gaps which made ...
Well we did promise we'd be back in Granada, didn't we? Except this time we wouldn't just swish around in our hippie pants, party with the gypsies and dine out on endless hours of tapas - no, we were going to be cultured, educated, further our knowledge and thus achieve a higher sense of self etc etc etc. We were going to learn Spanish!

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Granada Center
This large hotel is dated and it appears that the profits have been spent on its foyer/reception area rather than their rooms. It rates itself as 4 star but would really need to upgrade and refresh the accommodation to be such.

Hotel parking could be a problem if you drive anything other than a compact vehicle.
