Great hotels & restaurants in Sierra Nevada

Planning on going skiing in Spain’s Sierra Nevada? Here are our top tips for accommodation and restaurants you can’t afford to miss on your trip.

Hotels & hostels

Hotel Ziryab

Three stars, located right on the main square, and with a parking garage that gives direct access to both the rooms and the ski lifts. 

Plaza de Andalucía, 8  Sierra Nevada

Hotel Meliá Sierra Nevada

Four stars and now we’re talking luxury. Centrally located and easily accessible by car, but a little farther from the lift.

Calle Pradollano, s/n, 18196 Sierra Nevada

Sierra Nevada Hostel Inturjoven

Budget hostel. Basic, fully functional rooms. The package deal that includes meals brings your total travel cost down even further.

The Grill

Luxury restaurant at Hotel El Lodge. Just as the name suggests, but it’s also really good on fish and shellfish. The hotel is also recommended for its stylish suites.

Calle Maribel, 8, 18196 Sierra Nevada


The owner is one of the few people who were actually born in the village. A really good steak restaurant, plus a bar with lots of local ski regalia. Relaxed.

Tito Tapas

You’ve guessed right again and you definitely can’t go wrong at this world-famous tapas inventor. The wine bar is also well worth coming back for.

Pizzeria Floren or Restaurante El Bistro if you’re tired of all the fancy stuff and just want a simple meal.
