Seville is brimming with a variety of accommodation offers, from its five stars hotels, to funky hostels. With almost 400 hotels, apartments and the popular airbnbs you might find your perfect hotel in Seville, but don’t be too confident in high season —April, May, September and October— it might be more tourists than beds in town.
The stately hotel in Seville has been the Hotel Alfonso XIII par excellence. One the gems of the Expo 1929 —originally designed by sevillian arquitect Espiau and recently renovated by Hirsch Bedner Associates— remains as the grandest hotel in Seville. Royalty and celebrities are regulars of this majestic Hotel. http://www.hotel-alfonsoxiii-seville.com
Hotel EME Catedral marked a revolution in the tourist sector. The hotel is the result of fourteen typical sevillian listed houses renovated with a mix of cutting edge design in the rooms and arabesque touches in the common areas. If you are looking also for top location, you can’t do any better. The terrace with the pool at the rooftop with superb views to the Giralda and the Cathedral and the cocktails and parties at night cater the elite. http://www.emecatedralhotel.com
Set in the middle of Barrio Santa Cruz —the former Jewish part of the city— a palace dated from 17th century has become one of Seville’s most outstanding boutique hotels. The dazzling building and the most exquisite service is the lure of the charming Hotel Casa del Poeta. http://casadelpoeta.es/el-hotel-boutique/
Another restored building from the 17th century; this time in the Alfalfa neighbourhood is also an example of good taste. Hotel Corral del Rey preserves Roman marble pillars together with medieval Mudejar wooden doors while updating the building with contemporary comfort. Sevillian interior designer Kuki Mora-Figeroa created the interiors. Unfortunately, the rates are not within everybody’s reach. http://www.corraldelrey.com
Hotel Casa de Colon is the right option if you don’t want to splash your cash. Well-appointed budget hotel, with warm decoration. Top location in just a few steps from the cathedral but make sure you have the correct address, the hotel is relatively new and there are several hotels named Colon. http://www.hotelcasadecolon.com
The TocHostel is much more than a traditional backpacker’s hostel but it is still definitely geared towards a young crowd. Thanks to a strong marketing campaign and its modern and spotless facilities TocHostel has entrenched its presence Seville in record time. The lovely terrace works as the meeting point for the intrepid hosts and locals. http://tochostels.com/sevilla/es/
After travelling and living abroad, three friends have come back to develop the Nomad Hostel, a meeting place for the traveller. Inspired by the Italian cultural movement “slow” and with a strong commitment with the environment, this hostel wants to make sure you experience this lovely city —bikes, guide visits, tapas tour, yoga, flamenco are among its activities to reach this goal. http://www.thenomadhostel.com/
