We stayed in 2 different Shine properties in Granada and liked both of them. Helpful, English speaking staff, and longer checkin hours than some Spanish places. Good showers. We liked our bed, kids didn’t like theirs as much. First place on Elvira had bedrooms down a spiral staircase and the kids loved that. Place on the river had beautiful lit view of Alhambra at night. My son felt like he was sleeping on the street with all the noise and not much insulation (typical). We had interior room and it was nice.

Would stay again
Fantastic location. Very clean. Spacious 2 bedroom with living room / kitchen / dining room. Good views of Alhambra from apartment 2B, but from 2 relatively small windows. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay again.

Perfect location, book it now!
This hotel was just perfect, with the right balance between being charming and comfortable. As you enter, you are greeted with a courtyard, completely forgetting where you are. The receptionist (I forget her name) was super friendly and one of the nicest hotel staff I've encountered. We were upgraded to a suite for a small extra fee (totally worth it). The room itself was really large, with traditional furniture, two working air conditioning units (which seems to be a luxury in European hotels) and perfect views of the Alhambra. Though, I'd have been equally happy with a smaller room without views, because the biggest advantage of this hotel is it's location. It's on one of the main streets of the neighborhood, which trust me, is very needed, because cars cannot go to other places which means you'd have to walk up steps or hills with your luggage. Given it's location, you can call Uber, taxi or take the bus from right near the hotel. You can walk to the Alhambra, to anywhere in Albaysin, Sacramonte or to city center. We loved it and wish we had another couple of days here. Most hotels seem to get a 4 star rating for the frills (like a separate concierge desk) but I found this hotel better than most 4 stars we stayed at though it officially has a 3 star rating.
