Traditionally furnished small hotel in the Juderia.
What’s it like?
With just nine rooms, this charming guest house oozes character; built around a central patio, it has original features such as a well and exposed ceiling beams. Part of a renowned restaurant nearby, the three-star hospederia is located close to the Mezquita.
Décor is on the baroque side, with antique furniture, religious paintings, ruched curtains and traditional or chintzy print fabrics. But brick arches and wooden floors add a feeling of lightness.

Rooms, all of which are individually decorated, have satellite TV and computers with free internet access. One of the guest house’s main attractions is that some rooms have their own private terraces or balconies, where breakfast can be served, while others have spa tubs.
The hotel is owned by the same people as El Churrasco, one of the best-known restaurants in the city, famous for its grilled meats; the King of Spain has eaten there. In the café-bar you can order drinks and snacks, and two small patios are perfect for enjoying an aperitif. The roof terrace has superb Mezquita views.
How to get there
If you’re coming by car, the hotel (in Calle Romero) has a garage, but be aware that you have to drive along very narrow streets, which can be nerve-wracking for the unaccustomed; alternatively, you can park your car outside the old quarter (about 10 minutes’ walk).
