“Loved Horno de Oro, Granada, Spain”
Reviewed February 13, 2008

Booked our stay for our wedding anniversary. We fell in love with the building as soon as we entered it.

The Horno de Oro looks very small from the outside, but is very misleading. Once through the beautiful wooden doors you enter what must have been a large Moorish courtyard (now enclosed by glass ceiling in the roof). There are four distinct relaxing areas around the old covered courtyard with beautiful fireplaces surrounded by tiles, comfortable couches and period style furniture. One area has a vaulted ceiling with stars in it, very moorish in style and very beautiful. The breakfast area is very light and pleasant with a view through ornate glass windows into the kitchen area where the staff prepare your breakfast.

We stayed in the Lindjehara suite on the second floor., the furniture was pleasant (but the wardrobe doors were magnificent). The only downside was the jacuzzi bath didn't work and we didn't speak Spanish and the staff didn't speak English so we couldn't let them know about the problem, which at the price, should not have been a problem. Also, there was no kettle to make tea or coffee, luckily I never travel without my travel kettle and mugs!!.

We had patio doors which opened straight onto the communal split level roof terrace, with the most beautiful views of the Alhambra Palace and across the Albeycin rooftops.

We have stayed at the Savoy Hotel and the Dorchester Hotel in London, but we can honestly say, we much preferred the ambiance in the Horno de Oro. We would recommend and have recommended this Hotel to friends and acquaintances. Language problems aside, the staff were friendly, the hotel was absolutely beautiful. We felt as though we owned the building as we only once saw any other guests and they were only passing through the communal room on the second floor to view the Alhambra from the roof terraces.

All in all, if I win the Lottery, I would love to own this property with all my heart.

  • Liked — Traditional Moorish ground floor - views from the roof terraces. Interior furniture and decoration.
  • Disliked — Jacuzzi did not work

Reviewed July 17, 2007

Do not let the pictures fool you like they did us. Our room was tiny even by European standards. The room was so small it was difficult to find a place to keep two small suit cases. The bed was so uncomfortable and small (my feet hung off the end) that sleeping on the floor was considered. There is NO air-conditioning. Our first floor room had a window but it opened onto a busy alley allowing passerby’s to see directly in.
