Let me start with the good. The location was wonderful. Situated on a stream facing the hill that supports the Alameda. It is located right in the heart of the city close to many dining options. The lobby was beautiful and there is a nice social room. It has a very pleasant decor that speaks to it's boutique nature. Things... More

Made a last minute decision to visit Granada during a 2-week stay in Madrid, and booked this hotel online after reading the reviews - was not disappointed! - The location is near-perfect, just across from the River Darro at the foot of the Alhambra. - Rooms were well designed and comfortable, with a nice "local" feel - Staff were helpful...

We recently stayed at El Ladron in a deluxe room for two nights, which was very spacious. The hotel is really in a great location and easy to find. Since the weather was nice, we even walked to the hotel from the train station and back. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, they arranged for us to have... More

A beautiful hotel just below the Alhambra and within a quick walk to everything. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and clean, overlooking the small river out front. They have a Sherry tasting every night, so stop back in for some before heading out for dinner. I would recommend this place to all.

We stayed here for two nights. The main attraction of this hotel is the location. Which is at the heart of the tourist attractions The hotel is a blend of modern styling in the small public areas and much more traditional is the bedrooms We stayed in the hotel's standard room category. I'd describe the rooms as spotlessly clean, simply... More

El Ladron de Agua is a beautiful place to stay in Granada. locates in heart of city, in a large grand history building. BUT there is no car parking, and the road of entrance is only for taxi & bus. Warm staff help us find nearby parking finally. Anyway, the hotel is really lovely, and restaurant nearly is also delicious!

We recently stayed over NY for 4 days arriving NYE. The hotel has a very subtle and almost nondescript front door, plus the street itself is incredibly narrow and only accessible to taxis or foot traffic. Entrance is quite deceiving, once inside the interior seems very modern and chic but then when you get to your room it is quite... More

Beautiful boutique hotel in an excellent location in the old town of Granda. Easy walk to everywhere. Rooms and all amenities are first class and the staff are friendly. I would stay here again if visiting Granada.

We spent 4 nights at El Ladron de Agua, and enjoyed almost every minute of our stay there. The hotel's employees were pleasant and helpful.

El Ladron de Agua is a very good hotel and is in good location for a visit to the old city of Granada and the Alhambra. But we do not recommend this hotel if you plan to visit with a car. The only parking areas are quite far from the hotel. When we arrived in Granada, I could not locate... More

The access to the old town for private cars is restricted by the city in order to help preserve its historic charm and minimize pollution. We try to make every effort, via our website, to alert guests to this so they can arrange cabs and convenient nearby parking. We are pleased that you were able to resolve this and enjoy... More
