Culture/Sightseeing

Hotel Navas was chosen due to its central location on Granada’s Calle Navas. It was only a short walk to most sights and the pedestrianised street was lined with restaurants, even if they were a little touristy.

Arriving at 12pm, our first surprise of the day, was finding our room was available (check in time was 1pm). This was quickly followed by the second surprise: the size of room 312 on the third floor. To say it was compact is an understatement. The bed, which I’m not convinced was a full-size double, had around 18 inches of space on both sides: just enough for a bedside table and reading light. There was a small desk with empty fridge underneath, a chair in the corner, and a wall mounted TV opposite the bed (which we never switched on). There was a wardrobe with shelves and a safe which required getting a key from reception. However, for our two-night stay, we figured we could live with it.

The bathroom was similarly small but the shower over the bath had good pressure, plenty of hot water and didn’t leak too much onto the floor. Complimentary shower gel and soap were available in refillable bottles, but the hairdryer was the ineffective wall-mounted box version.

We chose a room only package without breakfast and can recommend two places. The first literally over the road, La Chicota, where a ‘tostada especial’ with jamon from Granada and cheese was big enough to share. With two coffees, the bill came to €9.60. We also walked a little further to a Granada institution, Gran Café in Plaza Bib-Rambla for coffee and churros. Here coffee, orange juice and 3 churros cost €8.30.

The hotel didn’t have a bar, but with a plethora of restaurants and tapas bars nearby, this wasn’t a problem and a small corner shop at the end of the street provided access to water and snacks.

On a positive side, the Wi-Fi was complimentary and excellent, and the two members of staff who alternated at reception, were helpful, friendly, spoke good English, automatically provided a map and any answered any questions we had.
