Recently converted from a 17th century casa palacio (palace house), this refined boutique hotel in the heart of Seville classily combines fresh modern design with original carved wooden beams, marble Roman pillars and exquisite Scandinavian wooden floors. The result: a lovely, intimate atmosphere, full of character, creativity and charm.
Positioned in an old cobbled lane in the heart of the historic quarter, Barrio Alfalfo, you’ll be in walking distance from the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world and many of the city’s other treasures. The authentic Spanish bars and restaurants are packed in the pedestrianised narrow streets where there is always something to catch your eyes, ears and nose.
Each bedroom has its own imaginative panache, thanks to local interior designer, Kuky Mora-Figueroa. She has clearly stamped her flair on each of the six rooms, perfectly blending antique with innovation, like Seville itself.
Imagine cream walls, crisp white bed throws, wooden door frames and slick glass and marble bathrooms. Each room is distinctive in its own way, and all are equipped with a state-of-the-art sound and vision system that includes a plasma screen TV, DVD player, i-Pod docking station, satellite TV and wireless internet.
Why We Like It
Corral del Rey’s fantastic restaurant serves delicious local cuisine and its vibrant bar mixes experimental cocktails with traditional surroundings.
The hotel also hosts sherry tasting evenings and can organize massages, yoga classes, bike tours, horse riding and hot air ballooning for you to make the most of Andalucian life.
The roof garden and plunge pool, with great views of La Giralda, are a marvellous respite after a busy day sight-seeing, eating and storeping.
