A stay at this design-led twin-building hotel offers the best of old and new.
The boutique Hospes Palacio de los Patos has a central location just outside Granada’s Old Town, within easy walking distance of attractions including Granada Cathedral, Royal Chapel and City Hall. The hotel has an attractive pale yellow façade and is made up of two buildings: the restored 19th-Century Los Patos Palace – which has lots of original décor details such as a grand marble staircase, classical figures, mosaic floors and ornate cornicing, and has been designated an Asset of Cultural Interest – and the new light, white Alabastro building.
Rooms are divided between the old and new wings, so you can choose the décor you prefer. Dreamer Alabaster Building rooms are light and modern, while Junior Suite Palace rooms are the most traditional and full of character, with high ceilings and statement beams. Facilities are all about the sleek Bodyna Spa: a relaxing area with a small indoor pool, sauna and hot tub. The therapists here specialise in Balinese massages. And for food, there’s Los Patos Restaurant, where the menu focuses on fresh seasonal ingredients and local traditions – signature dishes include different varieties of paella and ecologic caviar from Riofrío. The outdoor space is beautiful, too – grab a table on the sun-drenched garden terrace and sip cocktails by the fountains. You might even catch one of the regular poetry nights.
