A great location and very helpful staff, the hotel has a small and intimate atmosphere, and is in the style of an ancient palace. We enjoyed our stay in Granada very much, partly due to this great hotel, which had a touch of style and was very special.

Great boutique hotel with excellent service. Location is perfect, for the discovery of the old downtown and the Alhambra. Building with a very nice architecture, spacious room and bathroom. Ariana at the front desk is just great: Very courteous, providing excellent tips on places to visit (so many to choose from) and restaurants. Also, the libray is a great place...

Hotel is an old aristocratic house with stylish architecture. We were disappointed that the house which had an open courtyard does not compensate for the cold in the winter with some properly heated bedrooms. It lacks cosiness. Staff is friendly if a bit superficial. The location is perfect. Overall a bit too pricy for what you get.

Very central, El Ladrón is perfectly situated for a visit. I think it's worth the €150 per night. The hotel is styled around an iconic literary figure and the names of the rooms taken from his poetry. The hotel itself is a classical Andalusian carmen with rooms balconied around the central courtyard. Service is friendly and efficient. Staff are very...

A narrow cobblestone road and small river is all that separates this hotel in the Arabic section from Spain's most popular tourist attraction, the Alhambra. Hundreds of eating options within a few blocks. Hotel is very comfortable but keeps its ancient character.

This is an excellent boutique hotel. The location is perfect, right between the busy center and the beautiful Alhambra (if you get a street room, you will have a wonderful view of one of the towers) There are many restaurants and activities around, but not right next to it. Located in a XVI Century building, really beautifully renovated with all...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A building from the 16th century has become a hotel, taking its spirit from the essence of Juan Ramon Jimenez's journey and his poems. Its privileged location in the heart of Granada, at the foot of the Albayzin; its rooms bathed in the light of the Alhambra; its colonnaded patio; its lounge, vestibule and well/cistern... All these charms will lead you to the sound of water, and to a peace that will give you inner harmony. ... more   less
