Fodor's Review

This spacious hotel exudes an Andalusian cheerfulness, with hints at its Roman and Moorish past—it was built over the remains of a Roman temple, later became a Baroque convent, and then served as a prison. The whitewashed building has bright guest rooms with traditional dark wood furniture, and the brilliant-white interior of the convent's former church has been turned into a restful lounge. Try the restaurant's revuelto (scrambled eggs) prepared in myriad ways, including con aroma de pimentón (in paprika sauce) and with cabrito al ajillo (suckling goat fried with garlic).
