B&B Collection World: A unique hotel for many reasons

Eurostars Washington Irving: Next to the Alhambra, this five-star hotel has a fascinating history

Among the many artists of different nationalities who have fallen in love once with Spain, there is one that especially shines: the American writer Washington Irving. Well known worldwide for his book “Sleepy Hollow,”,in Spain Irving is first and foremost the author of “Tales of the Alhambra”, a fantasy novel inspired by the Granada legends, which became a bestseller in the nineteenth century.

In 1829 the young Irving came to Granada. The writer, who can be considered like an influential travel blogger of his time, stayed in two places: in the palace of the Alhambra and before in a nearby hotel. Today this hotel bears his name and has just been re-opened as a five-star hotel, part of the Eurostars hotel chain.

hoteleurostars1The hotel offers 63 rooms. In addition to Irving, many other artists stayed at this hotel, as painter Mariano Fortuny.

The Eurostars Washington Irving stands out for many reasons. The first one, hard to beat by any other hotel, is its location: on the grounds of the Alhambra. Moreover, the last renovation of the hotel has given it a fascinating personality. Now everything in it pays tribute to Washington Irving and his “Tales of the Alhambra”.

Eurostars Washington Irving HotelAmong the public areas of the hotel is remarkable the library. Here, first editions of “Tales of the Alhambra” are exhibited.

Keeping in mind, a very elegant, warm and inviting interior design, the hotel has been “themed”. In the library are exhibited first editions of “Tales of the Alhambra”, and in different rooms phrases and passages from the work of Irving are recreated. So, to stay at the hotel is to be impregnated with the Romanticism of the nineteenth century.

Eurostars Washington Irving HotelIn the 60s and 70s the hotel lived a golden age. Eurostars wants to relive it.

Definitely, the renovation has managed to shine the personal character of the hotel, marked by its cultural orientation, its location and its long history, that goes to the eighteenth century.

Blasco & Blasco has contributed to the project with armchairs and chairs Grey, a versatile model. We can see them, upholstered with different fabrics, in common areas such as the library, the restaurant and the piano bar.
