Why are we different than any other hotel in Granada?

Save 15%!

Ladron de Agua is an extraordinary Arts Hotel.

Our 15 rooms are located within a three story former Nobel house, in the heart of historical Albaycin, at the foot of the famous Alhambra. Our name 'Ladron de Agua' which means "Water Thief" was taken from a poetry collection called 'Forgotten Memories of Granada' written by famous Spanish poet Juan Ramon Jimenez. The whole concept of literature and art is a fundamental part of our  community - hence, The Arts Hotel.

You can read more about it here. You won't find room numbers in our hotel, each room carries the theme of literature and it is named by one of the poems from 'Forgotten Memories'. This reflects the individual character of each room's original Spanish artwork and furniture.

Why we are different than other hotels in Granada?
