Expert review of Suite Alhambra

Surprisingly smart small hotel in a great location.

The Suite Alhambra opened in April 2009 and occupies the second floor (there is a lift) of a former royal residence. Technically it’s a hostal (in Spanish), rather than a hotel, but that just means it has basic facilities, rather than being a hostel. And it’s not that basic either, with everything you are likely to need.

Location: 

Between the Puerta del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana, this is seriously central - which can also mean noisy. You’ve got shops, bars, restaurants and museums in easy walking distance. Nearest metro station is Sol.

Bedrooms: 

There are 30 rooms, including five suites. It’s all sharp style in black, white and grey, with marble bathrooms with showers. Some have balconies. With WiFi, air-conditioning, flat-screen televisions, hairdryers and mini-bars, you feel like you’re in a posh hotel rather than a hostal. The suites – more junior suites really – have sofas, tables and chairs. All rooms are non-smoking. There are some noise issues, both from the street and the corridor.
