Situated on a whitewashed street in Córdoba, the eighth-century seat of the Moorish caliphate, the hotel is a 15-minute walk from the famous Mezquita, or mosque, and has also become an attraction in its own right.
Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola oversaw the conversion of this midcentury bank building (at the main intersection of Barcelona’s elegant Eixample district) to a luxurious Mandarin outpost in late 2009.
Within the walls of the glorious Alhambra palace, not far from the pricey15th-century Parador de Granada, is another, more affordable hotel that also benefits from the dreamy location.
This 2004 arrival has an impressive ancient and tribal art collection.
Barcelona’s gourmands have long been crazy for the brilliant revisionist Catalán cooking of chef Xavier Pellicer.
All 37 rooms of this 19th-century boutique hotel have large French doors opening to the street (they’re soundproof when closed). Near the Plaza Isabel I and the Teatro Real (Madrid’s opera house), the hotel is an easy walk to Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol.
