Hotels in Spain

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.

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.

This hotel has now reopened as Vincci SoMa.

The hotel is the last Art Nouveau hotel still in operation in Barcelona. The 96 plush guestrooms are done up in shades of café con leche in this 1908 landmark building, the last designed by Lluis Domènech i Montaner.
