Lonely Planet review

A delightful little hotel right in the middle of town. The 'big house' has just six rooms, so they're all spacious, as are the sitting areas, breakfast room and patios. The style is very nouveau colonial, with whimsical touches like penguin-themed bedspreads breaking the monotony.

The unobtrusive Estrada is a converted private home about a minute's walk from several of Granada's crucial spots, but it's a relatively undiscovered gem. Right by the tourist office, the blue-eaved facade is a portal to a lovely, intimate building, with cheerily unpretentious service and classy, charismatic rooms. All rooms are decorated with thoughtful little touches, and offer guests nice hot-water bathrooms, fans and free internet; rates include a good breakfast. Rooms surround a leafy courtyard with a fountain and differ substantially in size. Room No 1, for example, is absolutely huge, with an offbeat wooden bed, a plush armchair and a bathroom the size of some apartments. No 5 is also large, while No 4 is small and cozy, with an arty, romantic feel. All are immensely appealing - you'll feel more like a house guest than a hotel client.
