We stayed in Abentofail hotel in Sep 2011. This is a beautiful, butique hotel in a small town, about an hour drive from Granada. We actually found it by chance, and it was a great find. The rooms were very nice and modern, and we were served with nice breakfast in the morning. In fact, the place was so nice...

Thanks so much for the previous contributors for their instructions on how to find the hotel - they are spot on! Even with Sat-Nav & a map I'd have never found the place. Once (if!?..) you get here, the hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are clean and well looked after - memory foam bed was good too. Would get...

Stayed one night in January as we were in south Spain and wanted to visit the cavehouse area - which was interesting. As other reviewers have highlighted it is very difficult to find and the streets are very narrow but once found were impressed with the quality. Hotel itself was of a good quality recently redeveloped in a town which...

We enjoyed a most enjoyable stay at this hotel in November en route from Valencia to Malaga. The hotel is quite difficult to find - best to park near to the central square and take the steps up from there. It is very close to the lovely cathedral opposite which you can take the little "land train" to the area...

Hotel Abentofail is situated in the centre of Guadix, difficult to find even with satnav due to the small alleys and steps. Best bet is to drive to the cathedral and under the arch into Plaza de la Constitutucion. There are steps from there directly up to the hotel. This is a pay parking zone, but you can park on...

This is a very nice hotel, clean and comfortable with a good restaurant en good breakfast. Careful, the hotel is located in the middle of tiny small streets, no parking near the hotel and if you miss the left turn into one of those tiny streets, you end up in such narrow streets, that you can't pass with a large...

We only stayed here for 1 night whilst trravelling across spain, but wish we could have stayed more. This hotel is really impressive. recently refurbished throughout, the hotel is really well designed and the rooms are all individual. There's a top class restaurant called the Buho on the ground floor and the staff can't do enough for you. Our room...

Once we finally managed to get through the door, this turned out to be a very nice hotel, but be warned that if you are trying to find it in the dark you may well have problems. We don't have SatNav, but had printed out very detailed maps from GoogleMaps that turned out to be almost useless. The centre of...

We did not stay here but ate in the restaurant twice in 3 days. We found the hotel by chance and had a fantastic lunch so had to return to experience the great food again before we left Guadix. We saw some of the rooms and a quick viewing was enough to convince that a stay here would be just...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Abentofail is named after Ibn Tufail, the great Andalusian philosopher, doctor, mathematician, poet and author of the first novel ever, "The Self-Taught Philosopher”. It is located in the heart of Guadix, one of the earliest human settlements in the Iberian Peninsula, few meters from its cathedral. The historical and natural surroundings of the hotel are unparalleled – we are less than an hour from The Alhambra and Granada and very close to the Nature Park Cabo de Gata – Nijar and the Almeria beaches. The hotel has 30 renovated, comfortable rooms distributed on 2 floors and decorated in different styles, giving our facilities a unique and defined personality. In each room, recycled woods from Indonesia, the best wrought-iron work and noble materials have been used. Of course, the typical central patio crowned with its characteristic fountain could not be missing in our hotel; the perfect place to relax accompanied by quiet music and a perfect atmosphere. The strategic location of the region of Guadix makes it an ideal place for excursions to many spectacular nearby areas. The city of Granada is only 60 km away and in less than an hour the monumental city of The Alhambra can be reached either by public or private means of transport, frequent train and bus service is available at all times. At 30 km distance from Granada is the well-known skiing resort of Sierra Nevada, among those most important in Spain. The beaches of Almeria and the Nature Park Sierra de Gata - Nijar are only 120 km away with easy motorway access (public and private transport) as well as by train. For arrivals after 22.00 please contact the hotel. ... more   less
