This adaptation of the 16th-century Convento de Santa Paula and a 12th-century Moorish palace bridges the historic structures with an ultra-modern steel and glass shell. The ambiance of the earlier buildings is maintained in some of the public areas, including the beautiful courtyard of the cloister. Rooms are cool and modern, with ample space. Standard rooms have no particular view, while superior rooms overlook the Moorish courtyard and some deluxe rooms look up at the Alhambra. The Palacio de Santa Paula is Granada’s most luxurious hotel, rivaled only by the parador on the Alhambra grounds.
