I wrote my mom in 1964:
I am now at the Washington Irving (Granada) which seems a nice hotel...
I had breakfast at the hotel this morning. Two rolls and tea loose in the pot instead of in a bag. Maybe this is the difference between a first and second class hotel --at a first class hotel you get two rolls and at a second class hotel you only get one. I don't know what you get in a 3rd class place
I had .. a nice room -- single bed wider than any I've seen, a bath, shower, and bidet and even an anteroom. I washed out my clothes of yesterday and found a hole near the hem of my traveling dress from Montgomery Wards. I will mend it tonight. The concierge sold me stamps and postcards, but I discovered 3 addresses I hadn't pasted on and mailed, so I'll have to get another for my children....
The hotel altho not air conditioned, was very cool and almost cold. The guide said they had been having a very mild summer. It really hasn't been unbearably hot so far.
Now they have:
* Air conditioning
Unique Quality: I attempted to see what a reservation would be here today but could find no availability for any dates, which makes me wonder. I booked it because it was opposite the Alhambra, 500 m from the centre
Directions: Take the road to Málaga and enter via the ring-road. Exit: Ronda Sur-Alhambra-Sierra Nevada..
