A Decent Alternative

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 13, 2009

Was referred to this hostal by the staff at the Atenas. It is in the same building, on the third floor. Lift.

Clean, polite reception staff, has a large screen TV in the lounge that is constantly on and constantly showing sports programs. Used mainly by the hostal staff as far as I could see.

Had a large double room with nice high ceilings. The bed was good, small terrace with a lovely view off to the left of houses on the hill.

Very poor lock on the door, no safe, no TV, no fridge, no phone.
Has air conditioner and heating facilities.

The pillow is full, soft and comfy. Have discovered that here too (All Spain? - in my experience, yes) the pillows are longer than the average, fully the width of the bed. The pillow case is a tube open at both ends e.g. no place to hide a money belt at night. Under the mattress only then, but what about the camera? The bed is not next to the wall, it is warm and I am sleeping with only a sheet, not a blanket. Only solution is to lock it up in my carry-on and keep that near the bed. The bed is too low too put the bag under it.

Walls light coloured and newly painted. Can't shut off the light from the bed. Poor lighting, only very weak wall lights.

A pleasure, a veritable pleasure to shower in a normal size shower with a place to put the soap down after the Pension Javier in Seville! The water is not stable and keeps changing to luke warm.

Unique Quality: Standard budget hotel/hostal. I would put it at 1*, if that.

Excellent location, central and only a 10 minute drive from the Intercity Bus Station on Carretera de Jaen. The taxi cost was surprisingly reasonable.

On the Internet they claim a TV, Wifi and telephone in every room. Not so in my experience. It is just possible however that I don't remember seeing a telephone or TV since I don't use them. I would not have asked about Wifi in any case, not needing one. I did ask about a computer and there was none available at the hostal itself.

Different rates are given on different sites for this hotel. The rates on the hostal's own site are the best.

Directions: Gran Via is the major street in Granada. In the same building as the Hostal Atenas, which was known to the taxi driver from the bus station, (Estación de Autobuses de Granada) Carretera de Jaén.
