Lonely Planet review
More Albayzín magic in a 1503 Renaissance palace that’s as much architectural history lesson as plush hotel. Rooms have Moroccan inflections and the courtyard hosts art exhibits.
Our independent authors have visited Casa del Capitel Nazari and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Granada.
Description provided by property
Hotel Casa Capitel is an ancient Renaissance palace built in 1503, renovated in 2002 and redecorated in 2012. It is located in the picturesque area of the Albaicin, in front of the Alhambra in Granada and in the city centre, close to the cathedral. It is a palace with lintels and Tuscan columns, Corinth capitals, Arabic chromium-plated beams; Renaissance decorated wooden ceiling and two Roman columns.
Among all the artistic whole stands out an exquisite Nazari capital carved in alabaster, what makes it a piece unique in the world.
Wooden beams original from the XVIth century are leaned on the artistic whole. These beams support the first and second floor of the building. From the main bright courtyard one can have access to all rooms and the balconies.
The renovation of the hotel has been carried out looking for the original materials to preserve the atmosphere of the XVIth century.
