This charming hotel lies at the heart of the tourist centre of Granada just 500 m from the city centre where the famous cathedral awaits discovery. The nearest ski resort is some 30 km away and it is about 70 km to the nearest beach.--This wonderful, small hotel is housed in a so-called 16th century Mudejar palace and has been transformed into a hotel with a great deal of taste and skill. The building's interiors feature Andalusian pillared innards with galleries and a wonderful collection of modern paintings to marvel at as well as fabulous frescoes in a Raphaelite style. The building was built in 1515 and comprises 3 floors with a total of 35 rooms of which 3 are suites. Facilities include a foyer with a 24-hour reception desk, a safe and a lift in addition to a restaurant with highchairs for infants and a conference room. Those arriving by car may make use of the car park, which lies about 500 m from the hotel, and a laundry service rounds off the offerings.--The tastefully decorated rooms each come with an en suite bathroom, a hairdryer, a direct dial telephone, satellite/ cable TV, a radio, Internet access, WLAN Internet access, a minibar/ fridge, tiling, air conditioning and a hire safe.--Guests may select their breakfast from an ample buffet.--On the Granada Highway, take the Recogidas centre lane. Drive through Recogidas Street and Reyes CatÃ³licos (there is a forbidden notice, allowing only authorised cars to follow: hotel guests are authorised to pass). Upon reaching Plaza Nueva, there are two pylons, which are closed at certain times of the day. If the access is closed, there is a pillar on the left-hand side with various bells. Ring the one for The Palacio Santa InÃ©s and staff will open the access. It is recommended that guests call the hotel at this time. Further on, the sign for the hotel can be seen; it is best to park at the top of the walkway.
