Lately the so-called "charming hotels" have become fashionable. Well, if the one who invented this definition doesn't know El Ladrón del Agua yet, he or she is quite late.
It is for sure one of the most special hotels I’ve stayed at. And it is not that it is luxurious or anything (even though it is far from being poor), it just has something I can't explain that makes it special.
Maybe it is that window that opens and gives you the actual Alhambra. It maybe the excellent remodelling. Perhaps it is the history as a traditional small mansion town house or the good taste of the owners in its decoration. I don't know.
