Hotel Alhambra Palace

Pl. Arquitecto García de Paredes 1, Granada, Andalusia, 18009, Spain

Built by a local duke in 1910, this neo-Moorish hotel is on leafy grounds at the back of the Alhambra hill, and 2012 saw completion of the restoration of its very Arabian Nights interior (think orange-and-brown overtones, multicolor tiles, and Moorish-style arches and pillars). The rooms are large and warmly decorated, with mosaic-tiled bathrooms, and all have views—the ones overlooking the city are particularly majestic. The terrace also has wonderful views and is a perfect place to watch the sun set while enjoying a cocktail or dinner. Ask to see the Golden Book, signed by the hotel's famous guests.

PROS

  • bird's-eye views
  • location near but not in the Alhambra

CONS

  • steep climb up from Granada
  • doubles as a popular convention center—there are five spacious meeting rooms—so often packed with business folk
