Room Mate Leo a gem of a hotel in Granada Mar 31, 2010
We didn't quite know what to expect of this hotel, but it turned out to be wonderful. The location was good and convenient, and the room was nice, with a huge private porch which was even larger than the room, with chairs and table. The room has a modern decor with black and white colors, and the furnishings, bathroom were new. Wireless internet also available free. We had breakfast daily included with the room, at the breakfast room, it was a buffet, but had great selection, and their croissants were some of the best I have ever had. The breakfast is served until noon, they had a sign in the elevator saying that you didn't have to get up early for breakfast! Spain time is pretty good, isn't it? There was no parking at the hotel, but we parked a couple of streets away in a parking structure, which was not too far.

How to get there
When entering the ring road surrounding Granada, take exit 131 ('Granada, Parque de las Ciencias, Palacio de Congresos, Armilla') and follow signs to 'Centro-Parque de las Ciencias'. Pass a roundabout with a lamp shop called Hiperluz, and a second where the Parque de las Ciencias is located. Keep heading towards 'Sierra Nevada-Centro' and pass through a tunnel. Pass the Palacio de Congresos, which is a green marble building on the right hand side, and follow signs to 'Centro-Alhambra'. Continue straight, cross the river over the bridge and keep following signs to 'Centro'. Then pass a large shopping centre on the right (El Corte Ingles) and just after it by the traffic lights, there is a square with a fountain to the right. Underneath the square there is a car park called Parking Plaza Puerta Real, where the hotel has a special rate for our clients. The lift up to street level is indicated with the handicapped sign. Once on the square, walk slightly uphill, so the fountain remains to the right and the main street to the left. Pass the Theatre Isabel la Catolica and the post office. Arrive at a junction of 3 converging streets. Take the pedestrian street (C/ Mesones). On the left corner of the street is a Haagen Dazs Ice Cream shop and on the right Caja Granada bank. The hotel is approximately 20 metres from there.
