Venue description

El Ladron de Agua, The Arts Hotel


This 16th century noble 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 Jumenez in Olvidos de Granada and is a showcase for local and regional art.

For El Ladron de Agua, the poem and the element of water are weaved into the very fabric of our hotel. When you enter through the ancient wooden door, you cannot fail to notice our 21 meter mural which has been painted in watercolor and acrylic by Pedro Garciarias. The painting evokes the poetry and magic of Jimenez and takes you through the four seasons of Granada.

In our central renaissance courtyard stands our infinity fountain, which makes music by "stealing" the cool water from its base, flowing gently,  then returning to it's source to start over again. The fountain bears an engraving and was designed by the famous Spanish architect Francisco del Corral del Campo.

In our library, we are fortunate to have a closely-guarded original edition of the Forgotten Memories of Granada, donated by Jimenez's family, which not only has the seven main poems, but also includes two unpublished poems: Truce and October. The Zenobia and Juan Ramon Jimenez families were represented by Carmen Hernandez-Pinzon Moreno who inaugurated the hotel during the summer of 2004.

Our 15 bedrooms have their own individual namesakes in Spanish poets or poems from Forgotten Memories of Granada. Many rooms have original artwork, and all have their own individual style and comfort. So, the next time you are in Granada we hope to welcome you to our beautifully restored noble house -the home of art, beauty and hospitality!
