Granada hotel choice - narrowing decision!

Jump to last reply

Admittedly, I've been obsessing over this hotel for ages - have not spent nearly as much time on all the other hotels put together for our trip next May! I'm using AA frequent flyer miles to book the hotel, so my choices are limited to those available.

I'm pretty sure that we'd like to stay in the lower Albayzin (with option to change mind again!) and the hotels that are available are the following, with pros & cons I've noted:

1) Palacio Santa Ines
- gets generally good, but mixed reviews, depending upon room, which seems to vary a lot.
- I can only book a standard room (probably small, no Alhambra view), although I've sent an email to see if I can upgrade and what it would cost
- up one of the narrow streets off Rio Darro

2) Casa del Capitel Nazari
- like the above, also gets very good, but mixed reviews, depending upon room.
- I can book a superior double room, which may be lighter and airier than standard room, but no view of Alhambra (unless I can upgrade to the one room at the top)
- again, up one of the narrow streets off Rio Darro

3) El Ladron de Agua
- A little more expensive than the above and located directly on the Rio Darro
- Can book a deluxe room here, but would need to pay extra (still very affordable!) which has room with Alhambra view
- gets the best reviews of all three hotels, but again, room makes a difference
-This hotel gets a nice writeup in Maribel's guide

I'm leaning toward El Ladron de Agua and "splurging" for the deluxe room with view; any thoughts about whether it is worth the out-of-pocket cash (less than $200 extra) or whether either of the other 2 might be worthwhile as well.

Many thanks!
