Review of Granada Inn – Granada, Spain

In Spain, Granada is a must stop. Everything from it’s food to culture and proximity to other great places, makes it big hitter on a trip to the south of the country. I remember that when I was sifting for where I would stay, there were so many excellent options (that doesn’t happen in a lot of…
