Our rating: Premium | Property style: Hotel
The boutique Hotel Plaza Colón sits across Granada’s main square opposite the cathedral. The building has housed many a local aristocratic family in the city, with the latest deciding to turn it into a four-star hotel after acquiring neighbouring properties. The hotel façade has been maintained from the beginning of the 19th century and this classic style can be seen throughout. Rooms are spacious and have an elegant décor, with a sleek modernisation of the local colonial style, and are furnished with dark-wood beds and fixtures and biodegradable products and amenities. Accommodation on the second floor has vaulted ceilings and some rooms have wooden balconies equipped with rocking chairs looking out over the city’s main park. The central courtyard features an outdoor pool, which the rooms on both levels of the hotel surround, in addition to an onsite bar, breakfast area and gym. Its central location means that there are plenty of dining options nearby including the popular La Calzada street, adjacent to the cathedral, where you will find most of the city’s best restaurants.
