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.
Internet Wi-Fi was very slow but managed to get an Ethernet cable (eventually) from reception to plug in directly.
Hotel parking could be a problem if you drive anything other than a compact vehicle.

We had a nice day here at Alhambra.
We got up early for us and caught the bus into the city from our camp.

One we got there, we found a very easy spot to park to allow for an easy escape once we were tired of the city and didn't want to deal with traffic. When we got out, we started to walk down the main road which seemed to be a bit of a shopping mecca, stores everywhere and people filling them. I was also really beginning to wonder what people did in Spain other than shop and ...
... grow on you. My little knowledge of the history of Barcelona was passed onto me by our bona fide tour guide, Murphy, who said that years of civil war has left the Catalan people wishing to secede from Spanish rule. We visited Sagrada Familia, a mini-basilica which was never finished and is still under construction to this day. I like to think that I have made a slight contribution to its construction via my entrance fee :) We took the lift to the ...
Today was spent mainly at the Alhambra Palace. Dating back to the 11th century and taking its name from the Arabic for 'red castle'. The dominating red fortress towers, sumptuous palace decor, multitude of architectural styles and magnificent gardens of the 'Generalife' (literally meaning ‘architect's garden’) are all set against the brooding backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Absolutely stunning gardens and architecture. After lunch we walked ...
