The sumptuous historic exterior belies the modern interior and amenities in this sleek business-oriented hotel. A member of Spain's High Tech hotel chain, it has an edgy contemporary style, from the bold black-and-orange color scheme in the downstairs breakfast room, to the minimalist rooms with their punchy modern colors, parquet floors, and in-room laptops. Some rooms have stunning views of the cathedral spires, with the hilltop Alcazaba beyond. Other perks include free
bicycle rental and a 24-hour coffee-and-tea lounge.
