Santa Inés Palace: HOTEL 1520

The Hotel Palacio de Santa Inés is located in the historic center. Access by car is complicated, this area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, so traffic is restricted. If you come by car we advise you to leave it in a parking lot (we detail below the directions to two parking lots with which we have a signed agreement). It is not easy to find a place to park in the hotel area.

We have an agreement with two public parking lots (Parking Puerta Real and Parking Triunfo) with a price of 19.50 €/24h for our clients. The parking is paid at the reception of the hotel and here we will give you some vouchers to deliver there. We cannot reserve a parking space because it is a public parking. Once you have parked you can take a taxi from the parking lot to the hotel and if you bring the taxi payment receipt we will deduct it from the amount of the parking (only the arrival taxi from the parking lot to the hotel will be deducted and it is essential that you park in any of the parking lots indicated and that you bring the payment receipt, if both conditions are not met we will not be able to deduct the arrival taxi. The return taxi is not discounted).

Directions to the hotel by car

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT PUT THE ADDRESS OF THE HOTEL IN THE GPS, IN ADDITION TO GET YOU INTO STREETS WITH PROHIBITED ACCESS AND RISK OF BEING FINED, YOU WILL NOT GET TO THE HOTEL BUT TO A STREET IN THE UPPER PART OF THE ALBAYCÍN. THE GPS DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY IN THE ALBAICÍN.

Although you have access permission for being our customer, you can only follow the entry routes enabled by the Local Police for hotels in the area Carrera del Darro – Plaza Nueva – Albaycín and once you reach this area, you should know that the circulation is complicated because the neighborhood is made up of narrow streets and stone, almost all pedestrian. On many occasions the cars can not access or are trapped in these streets with traffic because they are, we repeat, extremely narrow. Once in the Albaicin, you will have to go all the way around the neighborhood and the city center to leave the car in a designated area or parking lot.

The hotel is located in one of them, so you can not get to the door of the hotel in the car. It is very important that you do not pass through prohibited areas even if it is written Except access to Hotels, because these areas have video cameras that will record your license plate and you will be fined. Each hotel has an enabled way and ours is Hotels Carrera del Darro – Plaza Nueva – Albaycín”, and we can not appeal the fines for access to areas that we do not have enabled.

If you choose this route, you will have to provide your license plate number at the reception desk so that we can inform the traffic department that you are a customer and you will not be fined.

If you are adventurous and wish to arrive by car, we explain the directions to follow:
