This hotel is the result of the restoration of two 19th-century buidings on the corner of two pedestrian streets. Arab and roman ruins have been found underneath the building during its integral restoration. In fact, Alhondiga street is named after the ancient Muslim market, constituting a border crossing between The Medina and the Magdalena Christian quarter.
The building located in Alhondiga street was built as a residence by Marquess of Casablanca, registering, at the same time, the adjoining building in the name of Doña Rosario. This latter was soon used as a boarding house with its own entrance of carriages.
The current owners, The Vera family, acquired the hotel in the 40s, managing it for four generations. The total doing up of the building took place at the beginning of 2000, and the last refurbishing in 2011. Those two building have been restored keeping some of its historical architectural elements (e.i. façade, hall door entrance, balustrade and Andalusian courtyards).
