On a quiet cobblestone street in Casco Antiguo, the heart of the old city
This hotel has an ideal location in the Casco Antiguo, the city’s historic center -- it is situated a 15-minute walk from most major attractions and the Santa Just train station, where high-speed trains connecting Seville to Cordoba, Madrid, and other major towns stop. There are a lot of traditional restaurants, cafes and bars in the area, and great shopping can be found, especially along Sierpes street, located a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
The Casco Antiguo is where visitors will find most major attractions. It’s all within a 15-minute walk from most hotels, but for longer distances, taxis are plentiful and fairly cheap. There are dozens of restaurants ranging from upscale to small traditional tapas spots -- but some can be tourist traps, so the best rule of thumb is to check if there are locals inside before taking a seat.
Seville has a wonderful historic and cultural heritage, and the best way to explore it is on foot. However, its narrow, winding streets can be difficult to navigate without a map, so make sure to get a map at front desk. There are beautiful churches, historic buildings, and charming nooks everywhere; even the simplest door may lead to a beautiful traditional patio with whitewashed walls and flower pots bursting with flowers.
This charming 41-room boutique is housed in an 18th-century building in the historic center of Seville, a short walk from major attractions, shops and restaurants. It is built around two beautiful traditional patios with plants; exterior hallways that lead to the rooms. While Junior Suites and Deluxe Rooms have colonial-style furnishings with a modern twist, lower-level rooms can feel a little barebones, with sparse wall decorations, simple wrought-iron headboards, and small flat-screen TVs. However, all accommodations feature quality beds, Egyptian cotton linens, and clean, modern bathrooms. Small windows are typical of these typical Andalusian structures, but make most rooms feel dark. The hotel features a traditional tapas restaurant, a cozy library, and private parking on-site, but the highlight here is the full-service spa featuring a small rooftop pool with loungers and bar service.
