The Hotel

This 16th century mansion house has been skilfully restored into a beautiful hotel with fifteen guestrooms. "El Ladron de Agua", meaning "The Water Thief", is taken from the title of a poem by Juan Ramon Jimenez in Olvidos de Granada. The hotel incorporates water symbols and images into its decor that are important to Granada's history. Our interior courtyard has Tuscan columns and the rooms are full of small Moorish and Mudejar artistic treasures, which add to the romantic appeal of our hotel. We welcome you to stay with us when you come to Granada.


Our Legacy

On his visit to Granada, Juan Ramon Jimenez was taken by Granada's beauty and wrote a poetry collection drawing on his many Grenadine experiences; a collection now housed in the hotel library.


Painting exhibition

"Contrastes" by Mª José Puerto. From 1st April to 3rd May. Opening: 1st April at 7.30pm. Visiting hours: 4.00 - 9.00 pm
