Hotel el Internacional
This is the first time we’ve stayed at a hotel in Granada. Since we were in it for the long haul last time we were here, we always stayed in rented houses.
There are many hotels in Granada, of course, ranging from top notch luxury right on the main drag La Calzada, to more quint establishments a bit off the beaten path. We naturally tend to gravitate toward off the beaten path, plus we’re bargain-minded folk, so we found this place.
It is a small hotel with only 4 rooms. Perhaps this makes it more of a bed and breakfast. Especially since breakfast is included, which I didn’t actually know until I asked how much we owed after shoveling mounds of scrambled eggs, pancakes, gallo pinto, and coffee into our faces like wild animals. A nice, delicious surprise!
Our room is cozy, has a small flat screen TV, an air conditioner, and roomy bathroom with a cold shower. Yes, a cold shower. It’s not as bad as it sounds, really. Cold water here is not that cold and is actually quite refreshing after a long, sweaty day of wandering aimlessly through the cobble stone streets of Granada.
The staff are friendly and accommodating, including the tiny 16-YEAR-OLD(!) terrier who moves from one napping place to another all day.
