Fodor's Review

The architect who owns this 15th-century building transformed it into a hotel so distinctive that he received Spain's National Restoration Award for his preservation of original architectural elements, including barrel-vaulted brickwork, wooden ceilings, and the original pool. Opened in 2012, Casa Morisca is named after the term that was given to the Muslims who stayed on in Granada after the city came under Catholic rule in the late-1400's. Many of these "moriscos" were artisans who decorated houses using materials and designs traditional to their culture, such as arches and wooden ceilings. Though the guest rooms aren't large, they have a heady Moorish feel as a result of their wonderful antiques and unique ceilings; some also have views of the Alhambra and Albayzín, and all have minibars and free Wi-Fi. (Even if you don't stay in it, ask for a look at the bridal suite, with its intricately carved and painted wooden ceiling.) There's no full restaurant on site (breakfast is available for a additonal €9), but they do offer 24-hour bar service; enjoy your drink in the patio garden, which boasts views of the Comares Tower.

Perfect In Every Way

Not only is the place gorgeous, it is so meticulously restored you feel like you are walking into the 15th century. Plus you can walk to the Alhambra. The staff was wonderful and really bent over backward. They answered all my emails at length, helped me plan my trip, gave advice on how best to travel from Cordoba to Granada since we weren't renting a car (by bus) and offered to buy Alhambra tickets for us, make reservations at the Hamman, etc.

On the day my husband and I were going to the Alhambra, they opened the breakfast room and set out the buffet an hour early just for us. An added plus: right around the corner from the hotel is the Paseo Del Tristes, a lovely plaza in the shadow of the Alhambra with several good restaurants. We've been home for months now and and I'm daydreaming about the hotel!
