A number of hotels are located in the heart of the business district, nearby the Conference and Exhibition Centre (Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Granada), which hosts many major events each year.
Further hotels can be found around Granada's Camino de Ronda district, close to major shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.
Many reasonably priced hotels are also located near to Granada University, which is home to around 60,000 students each year. A number of self-catering apartments are located in Granada and can be rented for weekly periods. Family run guest houses and bed and breakfast are a popular alternative method of accommodation, often provide the best value for money and tasty home-cooked food. Several hotels are also situated close to Granada Airport (GRX), which stands around 11 miles / 17 km from the city centre.
Hotels are busy throughout the Spanish calendar and the best hotels and accommodation options soon become fully booked, especially during Easter, which there are many colourful parades and celebrations around the city. The summer months are also a busy time in Granada, when the sunny weather attracts many tourists and the hotels are at their busiest.
