Arabian nights meet the 21st century in this classy hotel at the heart of Granada's narcotic Albaicín quarter
The patio-courtyards of Granada’s ancient townhouses provide a perfect foil to the searing heat of the Andalucian summer, imparting a delicious sense of inner sanctum, of respite from the outside world.
Migueletes’ ancient flagged patio, with twin-spouted fountain, citrus trees and a double tier of balustraded balconies, evokes the caravanserais of Moorish Spain. And the hotel looks straight out to one of Islam’s most exquisite creations, the Alhambra citadel and palace.
The Room Mate group have revamped the hotel’s interiors, adding calm, contemporary chic to a place that already ranks among the city’s most seductive small hotels.
A high-ceilinged sitting room offers a taste of what awaits in your bedroom: a post-modern cocktail of chenille sofas, heavy cream drapes, sculptural vases and lamps, Berber pottery and framed prints of Roman Gods. Light reflected in from enormous mirrors further brightens the mood.
Staff are just as light-hearted and effortlessly care for your every need – they’re perfect ambassadors of Room Mate’s ‘keep it intimate’ philosophy.
Room Mate Migueletes in Grenada is a classy boutique hotel with 25 rooms, with doubles costing from €90 for bed and breakfast.
