About Seville

Andalucía’s fabulous capital, Seville is a gorgeous historic city with a well-deserved reputation for flamboyant Moorish architecture, a buzzy foodie scene and stacks of culture. It’s a hugely popular destination for a romantic weekend break, with a vast array of appealing hotels, B&Bs and villas available for rent. Set within the city’s most intriguing neighbourhoods, our pick of the best places to stay in Seville offers something superb for everyone.

The heart of the city — Centro Seville — is home to pedestrianised streets, chic boutiques and the enormous Seville Cathedral. It’s a lovely setting for five star luxury, and those eager to have heritage landmarks right on their doorstep, and easy access to the surrounding districts. We’re particular fans of Santa Cruz, Seville’s beautiful medieval Jewish quarter, which is characterised by labyrinthine alleyways surrounding a small plaza. Colourful ceramic tiles, windows bedecked with geraniums and a laid-back vibe make this a very appealing neighbourhood, and its our top chocie for family-friendly accommdation. Hip and historic Alfalfa, just next door, is known for its lively tapas bars as is the Alameda, a top spot for buzzy evenings out.

Discover Seville's countless historic sites, museums and architectural gems on foot, with guided walking tours or meandering sunlit strolls. You’ll find no shortage of cafés and bars for refreshing pauses in the shade, or for tucking in to delicious southern Spanish specialities. Don’t miss delving into Andalucía’s rich maritime past around The Arenal, where sailors once set off for the New World. Now a hub of bars and flamenco, the old shipyards have been respectfully restored.

Whilst summers in Seville can be very hot, spring and autumn are lovely. The week-long Feria de Abril and the Semana Santa celebrations are particularly popular; rooms at the best places to stay in Seville fill up fast during this time!

The Best Places to Stay in Seville

For Boutique Chic

  • Corral del Rey is a gorgeous boutique hotel with a terrific roof terrace featuring a cooling plunge pool. Set in Barrio Alfalfa, this 17-room boutique bolthole sits within a lovingly restored heritage building. Rooms are individually decorated, with limestone bathrooms and rain showers. Sip wine and sample tapas as the sun sets over the rooftops. Divine.
  • Mercer Sevilla is a hip boutique pad just west of the city centre. Design fans will adore the 12 minimalist, modern rooms and the elegant simplicity of the restored building. The rooftop pool and trendy bar are highlights. For well-heeled travellers.
  • Hotel Elvira Plaza has nine chic rooms with large windows revealing a cobbled tree-lined street in the pedestrianised part of historic Seville. The two restaurants serve great regional cuisine, and elegant rooms are done in fresh cream and white tones, with crisp linens and rusitc wooden headboards. Lovely.
  • Alcoba Del Rey is a romantic's dream, with antique-filled rooms featuring chequered floors, whitewashed walls and, in some cases, big spa tubs. The rooftop terrace with hot tub is ideal for unwinding. A real heritage gem.
  • Hotel Sacristía de Santa Ana has opulent interiors, perfect for history buffs. Unwind in rooms with beamed ceilings, city views and gilded furnishings, or kick back in the cloistered courtyard. An elegant hideaway in a restored convent, with delicious Spanish buffet breakfasts. Very tranquil.

For Foodies

  • EME Catedral Hotel is a gorgeous property with swish, sophisticated rooms and suites. Expect wonderful views of the nearby cathedral from the chic rooftop La Terraza del EME, and two terrific restaurants: Al Lado and Mi Arma. Brilliant for food-focused luxury.
  • The Corner House is a simple hotel in the centre of town. The big draw — in addition to the reasonable pricing — is the Michelin-recommended Mediterranean restaurant and tapas bar, El Disparate. One for keen foodies looking for a modern, unfussy stay.

For Families and Friends

  • Palacio Bucarelli dates back to the late 17th Century and is now a charming little hotel with individually designed suites and apartments, some with space for up to six guests — lovely for families or couples travelling together. The romantic terrace has a private pool, perfect for hiding away in absolute calm.
  • Hotel Doña Maria is a traditionally decorated townhouse with a rooftop pool and views of Seville Cathedral. The 62 rooms and suites have heritage features aplenty, and the largest have space for families. Well-located for a trip with little ones, this is a classic Seville choice for families.
  • Petit Palace Marqués Santa Ana is a modern hotel with flexible accommodation for families. Little ones will love the bunk beds, whilst grown-up travellers can retreat to private terraces to soak up the sunshine. A central spot just a few streets from Seville Cathedral.

For Music Lovers

  • Hotel Amadeus is exquisite. The hotel's 14 rooms are inspired by classic music and many house antique instruments. With soundproof rehearsal rooms and regular concerts, this is an elegant music lover's paradise.

For Luxury

  • Hotel Alfonso XIII was once deemed to be the most luxurious hotel in all of Spain. Commissioned by King Alfonso XIII for visitors to the Spanish Royal Expo in 1929, it has become a city landmark, with sumptuous rooms and suites, fantastic cuisine and a refreshing outdoor pool. Exceptional.
  • Casa 1800 is another tremendously indulgent hotel with chandeliers, four-poster beds and beds with gilded headboards set against exposed brick walls. In the vibrant heart of town, with a rooftop terrace and swimming pool, it's a wonderful luxury property.
  • Las Casas de la Juderia is a very unusual collection of 27 interconnected townhouses, boasting 134 rooms and 40 patios and courtyards, in Seville's fascinating Jewish quarter, Santa Cruz. Pick this place for the sense of heritage luxury and the chance to step back in time to a world of rich textiles, glittering chandeliers and family portraits. The spa is a nice touch, too! Brilliant.
  • Palacio de Villapanés, built in 1729 by the famed Admiral López-Pintado, has been transformed into a sophisticated hotel. Fusing Moorish and contemporary influences, it's a world of spectacular terraces, chic guest rooms and a soothing spa. The Los Rincones del Marqués restaurant is superb.
  • Casas del Rey de Baeza was once an 18th-century farm. It's now a magical hotel with swish, minimalist rooms and suites, a swimming pool and small spa. Slightly east of the city centre, ideal for those looking to unwind in style.

For Great Value

  • La Casa del Maestro, once the home of Spanish guitar maestro Niño Ricardo, is now run as a welcoming 11-bedroom hotel by his family. It is simply decorated with wrought iron bedsteads, colourful wall hangings and attractive tiled floors. A warm, great value choice for a Seville break.
  • U-Sense Sevilla Centro is a well-priced urban hotel in a great location. Well-suited to business or leisure trips, the hotel has modern rooms — some with balconies — on a quiet pedestrianised street close to the cathedral. A practical choice.


  • If you'd prefer a self-catering option, we suggest that you visit our online partner Booking.com.


  • Fly to Seville (San Pablo) Airport, 10 kilometres outside the city, and hop aboard a bus or catch a taxi to the city centre. Some hotels will be happy to arrange an airport pick up in advance. Alternatively, you can arrive in Seville by train; Santa Juta is Spain's third-busiest station.
  • Andalucía is wonderful for a road trip! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car. You won't need one if you plan to explore within the city, but rural Andalucía is beautiful and best navigated with the flexibility of your own transport.
  • Seville has a lovely subtropical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. Expect very hot summers, with temperatures ranging from 28°C - 35°C between June and August. For fewer crowds and slightly cooler climes, we'd suggest travelling in April - May or September - October.
