Hotel Granada Center
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 …
... 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 ...
Granada is one of the few places left in Spain that serve free tapas with your drinks...guidebooks advise you to order your drink first and see what comes out, before ordering your food, so we did! We were amazed by the generous portions of things such as croquettes, cod balls, spareribs, bread with varied toppings and plates of olives and ham. Needless to say, we spent lots of time wandering in and out ...
Great day. We toured as above with an English speaking guide and a small group of others. The guide used an audio headset system so we could stop and take photos and still hear the narrative. We enjoyed this well preserved world heritage site and learned a lot over the day . An added bonus of our hotel is a shared terrace overlooking La Alhambra so we are going to enjoy dinner and wine there this evening. We head out to Tarifa in the ...
... an adventure! Dumped the cases and walked a couple of minutes to a local bar where we got a drink. Everywhere in Spain you get tapas with a drink, and this bar was the master of them, you really don't need to buy a meal, even when ordering soft drink. The price are also very cheap, eg 3 large beers, 2 mojitos, and 3 plates of tapas cost about 8 €uros. After all that we didn't need dinner. Back to the cave for our first night.

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.
