About the company

Granada, its history, its stately old buildings and its resurgence as a tourist town is what make its inhabitants so proud. That is why a family from Granada decides to restore an old colonial mansion that time destroyed and almost forgotten, today shines as it did in its glory years and its impressive architecture rises in the curve of the Calle Real and welcoming the historic town .With a history that is literally the collapse and oblivion in the last century, the Hotel is the splendor, the comfort and maximum efficiency of the XXI Century . 

The meeting of the grandeur of the past with all the comfort advantages of modern day, is not casual. The reconstruction of the building was carefully planned respecting the original plan, with the proportions of the rooms with high ceilings, but adding a second floor to the back of the mansion identical to the original style, plus all the mechanisms of climate services and connectivity of a hotel of international quality.


The furniture in the social areas are all antique, purchased from collectors and local families to recreate the original spirit of the house, in other cases such as lamps, ceiling and doors are replicas of the originals. In the 80s the house was declared a World Heritage by the Ministry of Culture, was used as the setting for a movie and later deteriorated, so it had to be completely rebuilt.
