A convent erected in the 16th century over Moorish ruins has been restored to be a 21st-century hotel. Around the cloister is now a bar, and outside is a swimming pool. There’s also a spa and a restaurant serving local and international cuisine. The décor of the 36 rooms has a slight Moorish influence, in the colors and textures of the textiles. The location is perfect, in the heart of the city, by the main monuments and the river.
