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.
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.

There is also a collection of Roman mosaics that have been moved there from some other site and placed on the walls.
The evening train to Granada was uneventful, ...
After we dump our bags a group of us head out to have a wander and get some lunch and we end up having some kebabs! They were pretty damn delicious kebabs too. We wander into the Cathedral (Yes another Cathedral in a European town its crazy). This Cathedral is slightly different to any of the other ones we have ventured into so far and showcases typical 'Baroque" architecture… they say it gets it’s name because you will go "broke’ as a result.

"During the latter part of my sojourn in the Alhambra I was more than once visited by the Moor of Tetuan, with whom I took great pleasure in rambling through the halls and courts, and getting him to explain to me the Arabic inscriptions. He endeavored to do so faithfully; but, though he succeeded in giving me the thought, he despaired of imparting an idea of the grace and beauty of the language. The aroma of the poetry, said he, is all lost ...
