Getting back from the Alhambra Night Visit

I'm looking forward to our Alhambra visits (day and night visits - I've already bought our tickets). We're only using public transportation in Granada. Our hotel is near Plaza Isabel Catolica so we can take the C3 minibus. What worries me is that the last minibus from the Alhambra leaves at 23:09 which leaves us little time to visit the Nasrid Palace (entrance at 22:00 pm at the main entrance and you have to walk to the Palace and back which takes time.).

Does anyone have a suggestion? Do taxis wait outside the Alhambra at that late hour? We don't want to walk down to our hotel.

If you don't find a taxi at the taxi stand outside the Alhambra, you can walk over to the Parador and ask the front desk to call a taxi for you. Our you can head over to the Alhambra Palace to see if there is one out front. Otherwise, you could walk down the stairs just west of the Alhambra Palace and be at your hotel in no time. It's a nice 20-minute walk a night.

Is it safe to walk in the area at 11:30 at night?

It should't be a problem. And the lighting along your walk is fine. Even the Albayzín isn't that bad at night. Besides, 23:30 isn't late in Spain, especially in a university town.
