Reviews of Pensión Suecia
Calle Huerta de los Angeles, 8, Granada
Southern Wales, United Kingdom
Lovely traditional guest house
We were looking for something relatively cheap and traditional to stay for one night in Granada, and this did not disappoint! The amenities were basic, but clean and functional and suited us fine. The gentleman on reception (presumably the owner) was very helpful and answered our queries about the city. There was parking about 50m away which was 12€ for 24 hours. I think it was about 50€ if you were staying a week. It was about a 10 min walk/amble into the centre and very close to the Alhambra. The C3 bus stopped right outside although it is close enough to walk if you fancy a trek up a steep hill! I can't fault it from our stay :-)
Staff very helpful and informative. Lovely old building and good location.

a bit far from the alhambra and the town centre, but very nice people and good room

A wonderfully charming gem located perfectly for a climb to The Algambra or a swifter journey by the 30 bus.

We stayed at Pension Suecia in Granada for a total of three nights in the middle of June. My parents were staying at a very upmarket and expensive hotel that my partner and I didn't have the budget for - we were worried we would have serious envy when comparing our budget hotel to their luxury hotel – however we were completely delighted when we arrived at the pension. It’s located up a quiet street lined with jasmine and orange trees, in what I imagine is a more suburban area of Granada but still only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The hotel staff spoke limited English but were so sweet and welcoming. Upon checking in, Maria gave us a rundown of what to see and do during our stay. She also recommended some places where the people of Granada eat – rather than the standard tourist fare – we had some great times eating and drinking at the Campo del Principe. Maria also directed us to Alhambra (which is within walking distance albeit up hill) and Albaicin. We were booked into a triple room with ensuite. This involved two single beds and a sofa that folded out into a bed. The bathroom was an okay size and had a bathtub. The overall atmosphere was very nice. Furniture was old fashioned but in a good way – lots of dark timber. Bed was a bit firm but we slept soundly. The best part was the roof top terrace that overlooked Granada and provided some great views. We took our breakfast their every day (for an extra £3.50 per person). Breakfast consisted of a large toasted roll with butter and jam, a cake or pastry of some description, juice and coffee. It suited us perfectly. Pension Suecia was the perfect base for us for our first trip to Granada. I so was completely charmed by Granada that I know that I will have to return someday and when I do I will naturally choose Pension Suecia as my accommodation.
