This striking 42-room hotel, set in a Belle Epoque palace and a modern annex, is a 10-minute drive from the Alhambra and a short walk from the cathedral. Well-tended gardens feature Arabian-style fountains. The light and airy guest rooms have chestnut floors and other original details but come with modern furnishings and roomy baths with slate floors. Most Junior Suites include original mosaic floors, king-size beds and garden or city views. Avoid the accommodations in the annex, which lack atmosphere and charm. A restaurant serves local cuisine, and a terrace bar offers a light tapas menu. Other amenities include a wellness center with a dry sauna, a Turkish bath and an indoor thermal swimming pool.
Lowest Rate: Dreamer’s Room, $340; Editor’s Choice: Junior Suite, $620 (meal plans are available).
