The Best Hotels in Alfalfa
Hip, historic Alfalfa offers up the history of Seville in one small melting-pot area. With plenty of lively cafes and tapas bars to help you appreciate the way many people have influenced local flavour as well as this city’s architecture and culture. From Roman ruins to Moorish design and a grand church built during the golden age of Christianity, Alfalfa has plenty for the eyes to feast on too. Some of our Guru’s recommendations for the best hotels in Alfalfa are also on their list of the best places to stay in all Seville. This area is central and totally unique. And of course there’s all that choice when it comes to meal times…
Conveniently positioned between beautiful Santa Cruz and useful Centro, modern Alfalfa is also a great place to uncover a trendy boutique or gallery, and the Casa de Pilatos palace has tiles to rival those of the Alcazar. In fact it’s becoming quite hipster, as well as being fairly well to do.
The Best Hotels in Alfalfa
For Classic Seville
- The Hotel Casa Imperial is a 16th century Moorish mansion arranged around several courtyards. There are 26, individually decorated bedrooms, some with their own terrace or courtyard, plus a restaurant with outside dining. Despite the indoor/outdoor vibe this is a very private feeling hotel.
- Casa No. 7 is a six room boutique hotel housing a beautiful collection of antiques. All set around a characterful central courtyard. The hotel feels elegant and intimate.
- The Corral del Rey is a beautifully converted 17th century mansion with 13 chic, individually decorated rooms arranged around a pretty central courtyard. They say they offer old world charm and modern comfort.
- There’s loads to do in Seville, but lots of people are here to let their tastebuds go on an adventure too. Las Casas del Rey de Baeza is a good base if that’s the kind of visit you’re looking for. They offer Iberian Ham Tastings and an impressive range of tapas, which you can have by the rooftop plunge pool or in the lovely central courtyard. There’s also an Andalusian restaurant. And the decor is elegant and minimalist.
For Great Value
- La Casa del Maestro is a family-run boutique hotel, which was once the home of one of Spain’s great flamenco musicians - if you were wondering about the name! There are 12 rooms, and an Andalusian style when it comes to the decor, with plenty of colour. There’s also a patio and a fantastic roof terrace. Some rooms are under £100 per night.
