Hotel Universal, Granada, a Review

Here is a brief review of Hotel Universal in Granada where we spent one peaceful night.

Location. 

If I can rate 200 on 100 for Hotel Universal of Granada, it will be for its location. It is so perfectly situated, near the shopping area (400m from Granada Cathedral) and easy approach from the highway. We didn’t loose much time in finding its location. They helped us with parking and that was a relief after the long drive from Barcelona.

Staff 

The reception is a small area but it is not really important unless you wish to spend 3 to 4 days there. Very fast and efficient team at the desk. Room keys were handed over fast, so were the wifi passwords. A city guide map was given and they even explained some of the important routes which would help us with our walking tour.
Wifi connection was free and with good speed. Any blogger would consider this as prime need and be happy with it.

Though they have a rate that includes breakfast, we didn’t opt for it as we had plans to leave early for tickets to Alhambra the next day. They sounded wishful when they said if we go early to the ticket counter we can get the day tickets for the palace. Next morning they called a taxi for us and thanks for that we could reach early and be ahead of others of others in the queue.
We were allowed to store our luggage in the hotel. When we returned at 8.30 in the evening they didn’t charge us for parking, which was really kind of them.

Rooms 

We took twin rooms. They were basic and had all the necessary amenities, nothing very grand or stylish yet sufficient for the single night we intended to spend there. I have the pictures here. It is rated as three star hotel and has a cute little cafeteria in the top.

  10. Hotels in Europe are mostly very basic, though clean and well equipped. Location like you said is the key, cause you tend to spend most of your time outside exploring the place.
