We spent a lovely few nights at Casa Morisca esarlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
The hotel is well located, along the " river" toward the end of the road, with superb views from the street of the Alhambra, Nazrid Palace, which is spectacular day and night.
The rooms are not large but certainly were adequate. The building dates from the 1400s having (we were told) been a minor palace in its time. The rooms are around a central closed courtyard and the Moorish influence is very strong indeed. The breakfast room is a cavern downstairs.
On the first floor, our street-facing room was bright and full of character. The bed was fine; bathroom okay; and amazingly, the TV variety was easily the best we had in Spain despite the fact that this was the only 3 star hotel we stayed in (sometimes it is pleasant to relax with an English-language movie after a long day walking around the sights!)
Service was friendly and faultless. Only irritation was that noise on one night only came from "flamenco dancers" upstairs.
I reckon this is a top value hotel so am pleased to recommend it.
