Click here - for the best places to stay in Seville

Weekending in the capital of Andalucia has recently become hugely and understandably popular. A lively city, many of the best places to stay in Seville are conveniently located in the heart of the action. Most of our recommendations are ideally located for exploring this beautiful city (for a well located apartment visit our partner, where you'll find a wide range).

Go to enjoy flamboyant Moorish architecture, charming cobbled streets teeming with colourful life, and rich in history, culture and the staccato drama of flamenco.

The best way to get to know the city is to stroll around the different quarters (Don't miss El Arenal, the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz and La Macarena).

Spring is especially popular with visitors who come to see the Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions and experience the week-long party that is the Feria de Abril, when hotels can be booked up months in advance.

Some of the most charming and best places to stay in Seville are in converted town houses organized around a typical Andalucian courtyard.
