I arrived Granada by train late at night and my taxi driver dropped me off a few steps away from my destination.
Hidden in this cobblestone alley is a gem of a hotel,
my home away from home in the southern city of Spain
Hotel Casa 1800 Granada
Like its sister Hotel Casa 1800 Sevilla (see my post here), this boutique hotel is housed
in a restored 17th century building. I have a huge thing for old architecture and it was
love at first sight when I stepped through these doors.
Check in was a breeze, which I appreciated because I was dying of hunger
and wanted to run out to grab a late (midnight) dinner.
Luckily, my room was on the ground floor, making it easy and convenient for my
eating escapades. (I did not notice any elevators in the building.)
How I loved my room and all its charming old world details!
It was more spacious than my room in Seville and came with the same modern amenities.
There was a window that opened up to the breakfast area, making it a bit noisy in the
mornings, which wasn't totally a bad thing because I would have slept through noon
in my comfy bed if it were quiet.
The bathroom was modern and very clean
Bathtub and rain shower in one
Every morning I woke up to the sound of people enjoying their first meal of the day
at the inner courtyard
Coffee, tea, and other beverages
Simple selection of cold cuts, cheeses and fruits
All things carbs
After fueling up, I went to check out the second floor
Very nice and very Granada
I love all the beautiful details of the hotel
These clay vessels by the doorway
The armchair and the painted walls
In the afternoons, hotel guests enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks. Nothing to write
home about, but sure saved me from lugging back bottles and bottles of water.
Hotel Casa 1800 also boasts an excellent location, just off Plaza Nueva and not far from
Alhambra. I walked everywhere the whole time in Granada.
A few steps from the hotel is a souvenir shop selling everything you can think of
Perfect for last-minute shopping!
I wanted to take home all these gorgeous plates
Remember to smile and bargain :)
I highly recommend Hotel Casa 1800. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Granada!
