This was a fantastic place to stay. A beautiful internal courtyard. Clean rooms well appointed. Breakfast was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking available which is essential in Granada. Great position not far from most things. I would stay again with no hesitation.

The Casa Morisca is a wonderful hotel. It is full of charm - like a reinvented Moorish house. The central courtyard is lovely. The room is a good size, full of character and immaculately clean. The staff spoke very good English and were very, very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located in the old Moorish section of Granada, so is surrounded by dozens of charming little alleys and narrow streets. There is free wi-fi in every room. The breakfast selection was small, but perfectly adequate. Unusually for me, there is nothing I could fault with this hotel - I cannot recommend it highly enough as the place to stay when you are in Granada.

Just back from a 3 night stay - wish it had been longer. We had a patio room ( internal view only) and before arriving I was a little concerned that we might be disappointed. Far from it. The room was quite small but very comfortable and well equipped and the view to the courtyard was lovely. The hotel is beautiful and very much like a Morrocan riad, cool and serene from the moment you step through the huge wooden door. The staff were friendly and gave great recommendations for places to eat and even booked bus tickets for us.
There's a bus stop a few minutes away so it's easy to get to the Alhambra, the Plaza Nueva is a short stroll along a quiet road beside the river and there are plenty of restaurants within easy reach.

Only thing we didn't like about this hotel was leaving. We had two rooms - an interior double for parents and a larger exterior double with an extra bed for three kids (21, 18 and 10). Staff was exceptionally helpful and welcoming. Hotel was beautifully restored. Rooms comfortable. The breakfast is served in a delightful stone area- sort of like a wine cellar but bright. Food is plentiful and delicious. At 9 euros, little pricey but worth it. There is a nice covered patio area where we brought our picnic lunch one day.
We were there for two nights, and for a longer stay the interior double would have felt small and closed in but it was comfortable for sleeping (and in our case we could also hang out as a family in the larger exterior room.) If both are available, spend the little extra to get the lighter exterior room.
Location is ideal. In the Albaizin, so has the charm and interest of the old town but only a half block off the main street and a Plaza with good restaurants - enjoy the outdoor seating directly beneath the Alhambra. Walk 20 minutes down this street to historical center of town (Cathedral, etc.) Catch the minibus from the Plaza (1.20 euros - gets you anywhere in a continual loop). Walk or take minibus up to Saint Nicholas Mirador for the most spectacular views.
Rick Steves says some consider Albaizin sketchy. We always felt totally safe and never encountered any shady characters. Perhaps further into the area but not near this hotel.
Great value. Highly recommend it.

We stayed at this hotel end of July for three nights. It occupies an old 15th century building in the Albayzin area. It has 15 very nice room, some with views on the Alhambra. The hotel itself has a very nice, calm, atmosphere; the lovely internal patio has an ornamental pool/fountain, at night it is surrounded by candle lights which gives an extra touch of relaxation and cozyness. The position of the hotel is central, at a walking distance (15/20 min) from the centre. There is free, very limited parking just in front of the hotel, however it is a closed steep street, not very easy to find (our navigator had troubles in finding the way, though it is central).
The personnel at the reception is very nice and welcoming, always available to give you information about the town and attractions. There is free wireless internet, though on the top floor the signal is not very strong, however in the basement there is a free computer with internet connection.
You can have buffet breakfast for 10€, which is a quite good price for what they offer. This is a very nice little hotel, with an excellent relaxed ambiance. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

This was my favorite hotel throughout our entire trip to Andalucia. It has a very homey quality with great architectural details. PROS: The room was very spacious and the high ceilings were great, we were on the top floor. The concierge was very helpful and even directed us to our favorite restaurant of the entire trip (awesome place close to the hotel called Azafran). There was a breakfast buffet in the basement area for 2 people for 10euros with good continental choices along with spanish omelette, juice, coffee, etc. Close enough to walk to the city center of Plaza Nueva and Gran Via. Great sitting area in the lobby to just relax and meet other guests of the hotel. CONS: Wifi's spotty if you're on one of the higher floors, more like non-existent actually. The hotel concierge receommended a flamenco show called Venta de Gallos and it really wasn't that great. I guess it was because I was comparing it with this amazing flamenco show in Sevilla at the Alvarez Quintaro theater and I felt so let down and totally disappointed. The climb to the entrance of the hotel is a bit steep and may be difficult for some people and watch out, the rocks are a bit slippery! Overall, still my favorite hotel, a great mix between a luxury boutique hotel and a bed & breakfast with an emphasis on service.
