La Casa de la Trinidad
Why We Love This Hotel
- The 19th-century property is on a pretty square in the old town
- It is less than 5 minutes' walk from the Cathedral & the Royal Chapel
- The UNESCO-listed Alhambra is a 15-minute walk away
With a structure that dates back to the early 19th century, La Casa de la Trinidad is a characterful boutique hotel in the Granada's old town.
The hotel is on the Plaza de la Trinidad, a tree-lined square that is less than two minutes' walk from Granada's Baroque Cathedral (Catedral de Granada), described by The Daily Telegraph as a "feast of marble and gold", and the Royal Chapel (Capilla Real), where there is a "small but impressive museum" (Lonely Planet). The shops on Calle Mesones are just around the corner, and the Albayzin district, which hides a warren of medieval streets, is 15 minutes' walk away.
The Alhambra, Spain's most popular attraction (open 8:30am-6pm), is a 15-minute uphill walk from the hotel. This UNESCO World Heritage Site started life as a fortress in 889, and was later redesigned by Sultan Yusuf I in the 14th century and then by Charles I of Spain, otherwise known as the Holy Roman Emperor, in the 1500s. The crowds die down a little in the winter, but we still recommend booking tickets in advance.
The hotel does a Spanish-style continental buffet breakfast, and there is a bar on site. Bedrooms have modern décor, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Some overlook the Plaza de la Trinidad, and others face an internal courtyard.
