With its' Moorish influences still prominent across the city, highly reasonable cost of living, an abundance of great tapas bars and seemingly no end to fun and excitement, Granada really is the ultimate destination for travelers and tourists looking to have a great experience that won't cost them the earth.

The Moorish Quarter

The Moorish quarter of the town is located at the feet of the famous Alhambra and mostly north of the River Darro. Hostals and hostels found in this area are old, restored Moorish buildings that encompass a sense of what it would have been like to live here at the height of the Moorish rule. Streets are narrow and can be crowded but the atmosphere remains relaxed and despite the seeming lack of space, accommodation does not feel claustrophobic.

Beyond the Moorish Quarter

Heading North from the Moorish quarter, towards the university campuses and the train station, accommodation becomes more spacious and modern but loses Granada's unique arabic character. Staying here is good for those who are looking to make lots of excursions from Granada to surrounding destinations as accessibility will be easier and the roads less congested.


For those of you interested in adventure, the stunning Sierra Nevada Ski Resort is just a 40 minute bus ride from the city, meaning you can ski by day and be back on solid ground by night!

Hostals and Hostels definition

A HOSTAL (also know as a guest house) provides basic accommodation at a reasonable price and a private room. These are common in Spain and not hard to find, with many occupying a floor of an apartment block as opposed to a stand alone building. Rooms don't all come with en-suite facilities, however guests will usually have the option of this.

A HOSTEL in Spain is that which you would expect to find in most parts of the world - the opportunity to stay in shared dorms at a low price. These are often social hubs among travelers, with common rooms and, at times, cheap bars making them excellent places to meet new people or find another travel companion. Many hostels also have private rooms available, as well as dorms.
