If you are an early riser, ask for a room with a view of the Huécar River gorge so you can open the windows and take in the magnificent sunrise. This hotel occupies an 18th-century building that sits high enough on a hillside to offer views of both the old town and the jaw-dropping gorge. If you want to take it all in, splurge on the “Hebrea Hermosa” (Beautiful Jewish Maiden) suite with a private terrace. In any case, rooms feature handsome red tile floors that are cool underfoot, pale walls, traditional wooden furnishings, and colorful fabrics. They are similar in size to those at the nearby Posada de San José—large enough, but not exactly roomy. While you almost expect a prayer book next to the bed at the Posada, at the Leonor each room is equipped with a copy of Don Quijote (in Spanish, of course) on the bedside table.
