Morisco is the name given to Moors who remained in Spain after the Christian reconquest, and Casa Morisca has remained upon this very spot ever since that time too. It was recently restored and converted to a hotel, ideally situated in the old Moorish quarter (known as the Albaicin or Albayzin) at the foot of the Alhambra.

The late 15th century structure encloses a magical patio with an original moorish-style pool and surrounding galleries and columns. This is almost an Alhambra in miniature, with stucco arches, ancient tiles and characteristic patterns in the woodwork of the ceilings. The patio is the ideal place for a refreshing drink at the end of the day, relaxing and listening to the quiet trickle of water in the pool. The breakfast room of Casa Morisca has an impressive barrel-vaulted ceiling of original brick and stonework.

Each of the 14 guestrooms is individually decorated and combines all the charm of this very original old building with the comforts of 21st century life, including air conditioning and internet access. Every room has a special aspect, either facing inward to the patio or outward with views of the Alhambra, the Generalife and the maze of narrow medieval streets that surround the hotel. There is one suite with a large double bed and its own sitting area beneath a 15th century wooden ceiling. The bathroom has a jacuzzi-bath and a multi-function shower. There is also the possibility of adding an extra double bed. The Mirador room at the top of the house has spectacular views towards the Alhambra from both bedroom and bathroom.

Casa Morisca occupies a privileged position in old Granada: a Unesco heritage site, quiet and peaceful, yet with easy access to bars and restaurants, the Alhambra, the Albayzín and the river Darro.

We Say

Visiting the Alhambra should be on everyone's "50 Things To Do Before I Die" list. We can't think of a better way to make a visit than to stay at Casa Morisca, where the whole hotel is authentic Moorish with ancient timbers, original floor tiles and even a well, tucked away in the corner of the patio. When you lie in bed and look up at that ceiling, it's not a replica: it's the real thing.
