The Palacio de los Patos in Granada, Spain

May 13, 2011 by

The Palacio de los Patos is a tale of two parts, one old, one new, that together make up a grand whole.

The old part is a much loved 19th century palace that has been reconverted with great style and flair by the extraordinary Hospes group of hotels. Their philosophy is one of boldness and class and the Palacio de los Patos fits the bill perfectly.

As for the new part, this is a striking modern addition, mixing depths and transparencies behind a majestic lattice made of alabaster. It contains many of the hotel’s facilities, including the restaurant, spa, pool and some 22 bedrooms, each one flawless in the predominant color of white.

This modern twist carries on into the old palace, which despite retaining some of the original features, such as the mosaics and rose window still has “classy modern décor” written all over it, from the futuristic sinks to color schemes and lines.

The hotel has 42 delicately decorated rooms, a Senzone restaurant that represents the Andalucían culinary tradition and a Bodyna spa famous for offering a serene transformation for both body and mind.

Six unique room styles are offered: Dreamers, Deluxe, Junior Suite, Suite, Grand Suite and Presidential Suite.

Dreamers rooms are between 20 and 30 square meters, with a king size bed, plasma screen and turndown service. Deluxe rooms are 35 square meters, have fantastic views to the gardens and city, plasma screen TV and a king size bed. Junior suites are spacious bedrooms, at 45 square meters, with warm color decoration that complements the modern interior design. Sitting at 50 square meters, the Suites offer a kind size bed, spacious living rooms and private terraces.

Grand Suite is a spectacular room, at 65 square meters, with a living room and king size bed. The Presidential Suite is a grand 70 square meters, complete with living room, plasma screen, and a balcony with direct views of the beautiful garden.

Senzone Restaurant offers authentic, natural and healthy ingredients mixed and blended together to bring the guest a delicious dish. Some highlights of the menu include: grilled Motril squid, laquered veal sweetbreads, and liquorice ice cream.

Granada is such a lovely place to visit, and the Palacio de los Patos is certainly its equal, what with its décor, history and last but not least, excellent friendly service.
