This landmark hotel, inspired by the Alhambra Palace, has spectacular views over the city of Granada.
Hotel Alhambra Palace is an impressive building with a stunning setting. It perches grandly on a hillside and has panoramic views over the city of Granada, the Alhambra forest and Sierra Nevada mountains. It’s just a five-minute walk to the Alhambra Palace (which is very popular, so make sure you pre-book) and you can spend your days leisurely exploring the city’s street stalls, teahouses, bohemian cafés and historical attractions. G&Ts up on the hotel’s Panoramic Terrace at sunset is a must, when the city gets bathed in a dusky violet light.
For food, the Panoramic Restaurant serves dishes rooted in Andalusian traditions and focuses on fresh local produce, with stand-out options including steak tartare, Iberian cured ham and Andalusian gazpacho. Rooms are comfortable with a Moorish style and views of the city, forest or mountains. The hotel has a fascinating history, too. It was inspired by nearby Alhambra Palace and dates back to 1910. Previous guests read like a ‘who’s who’ of royalty, politicians and Hollywood A-listers, and in the 1930s it was used as an army hospital during the Spanish Civil War. Décor details such as elaborate stuccowork and Moorish tiling add to the historic charm.
