In a quiet corner of Seville’s old town, Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza is a grand 18th-century manor house turned boutique retreat with a classic Andalusian façade. The interiors have a cool modern vibe with smooth stone floors, whitewashed walls and chunky leather sofas. Arranged around a magnificent central courtyard, the 41 rooms and suites are spacious and airy, with cast-iron beds, slate floors and soft lighting throughout. The blond wood and marble bathrooms are understatedly chic. Sip wine and feast on tapas at the rooftop pool and bar or sample modern local cuisine at Azahar, a rustic restaurant nestled in a 13th-century wing of the hotel. After a day exploring Seville’s historic streets, grab a book from the stately library and kick back in one of the three sunny courtyards or indulge in a massage or treatment in the rooftop spa cabin.
In the Area
Beyond Seville’s touristy hotspots, discover foot-stomping flamenco at Casa Anselma, a raucous, smoke-filled club close to the Puente de Isabel II. For another Spanish culture fix, head to Museo De Bellas Artes, an art museum housed in a former convent; look out for works by Velázquez, El Greco and Goya. Searching for the best restaurant in Seville? This is the subject of endless debate, but a good contender is Abantal, a contemporary Andalusian joint run by Julio Fernandez, the only Michelin-starred chef in town.
How to Get There
We stayed at Las Cases for one night and had a great experience from the moment we arrived.
Very helpful staff gave us great advice on sites to see as well as providing help for finding somewhere to eat. We had arrived early and they parked the car and made sure our luggage was waiting in our room when we arrived back after an afternoons sightseeing. The superior room was a very good size, and the bed very comfortable and huge.
The hotel is situated in the old town and really is a hidden gem.
Honestly I was expecting something better than this tiny bed and shower. There is basically nothing but sleep in this hotel. Location is good but way too small. There is nothing as platinum member’s benefit either.
Our hotel was conveniently located very close to the centre of Seville’s old town. It has features of the traditional 18th century Sevillian building with architecture from that period. It used to be an old mansion that has been refurbished. There are rooms on two floors around internal patios (not unlike the Moroccan riad).
The hotel also had a rooftop pool and bar – although we found it very very popular but was nice to visit and have a quick dip in the pool on a hot day.
Breakfast was a buffet that comprised of all we would want. We also had some meals in the restaurant.
If anything, while our room was refurbished, it was quite small. The windows in our room opened onto the walkways – so we tended to keep them shut. I would stay again – however look for a larger room. (The photos on the site seemed to be of larger rooms!)
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Nearby there are lots of tapas bars and restaurants.
