This charming hotel is wonderfully located on the Carrera del Darro, a charming pedestrian (except for taxis) street along the Darro River below the Alhambra. Although there is no hotel parking do not be discouraged. There is a public parking garage, the San Agustin Carpark, next to the cathedral and near Plaza Nueva, that is a 10 minute walk or a short taxi ride from the hotel. Although we initially had concerns about the parking arrangement, it turned out to be quite easy, and our experience at the hotel made this inconvenience more than worth it. The hotel’s center atrium is beautiful and peaceful. Our room, Generalife, was spacious and had a nice view of the Alhambra. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, with good suggestions for touring and dining. They arranged in advance of our arrival for the group Alhambra tour. Breakfast was included in our booking and was wonderful, with a large buffet table with savories and sweets, fresh fruits and juice, served along with excellent cappuccino. The location of El Ladron made it easy to visit the Alhambra and Albaicin as well as Granada’s other attractions. We look forward to returning to this special place.
- 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
