What could be a more perfect combination than a unique opportunity to stay within a famous attraction combined with great room prices in Spain?
For families vacations or a romantic retreat, the 17-room Hotel America could be the answer. Located within the walls of The Alhambra, a 14th century palace and fortress, is this surprising hotel and restaurant.
This 19th century hotel started out as a house but is now a hotel composed of two buildings with a quiet garden courtyard in between. All of the rooms have a private bath or shower, telephone, central heating and air conditioning. Some of the rooms look out onto the courtyard and some with beautiful views of the Alhambra gardens.
With seasonal specials and room rates between 50-150 Euros a night, it could be a great place for either a romantic getaway or a family stay. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend all day exploring this famous landmark knowing you had rooms waiting within the walls? Since this is one of Spain’s most visited attractions, if you need help they will get your tickets to the Alhambra for a small fee.
This hotel is filled with modern amenities like free wi-fi but retains lots of genuine warmth and cozy rooms filled with antiques. With its amazing location you can choose between eating at their restaurant, with its romantic courtyard, choose from nearby restaurants like La Mimbre or venture further into town via the bus.
We loved our visit to the Alhambra and its Generalife gardens. The three hours we spent was not nearly enough and I can see why people return to this beautiful place over and over again. When we do, staying at the Hotel America is definitely going to be part of our plan.
