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
My wife and I booked this hotel via British Airways as it was part of our trip and we are very happy we did. The hotel is situated within walking distance of so many attractions and the busy area around the Cathedral and Alcazar which is a brilliant place to walk around at night . The hotel was a lovely place to stay. The staff especially those on the reception were always very helpful and couldn't do enough. The hotel is nice and quiet with a lovely restaurant and a really nice roof top pool area which was fantastic to relax in when we had finished our days sightseeing. I should imagine when the temperature really rises in the summer months the pool is a must. Our room was very comfortable and the large bath with shower in it a really good place to relax and unwind. On our last day after we had checked out the staff found a room for us to shower and get ready for our evening flight which was much appreciated.
Overall a lovely place to stay.
Having just returned from a four day visit, our 2nd to this hotel I must once again congratulate the staff and management for a superb stay. The hotel is a wonderful oasis of good service and attention,with a breakfast to die for. I could not fault any aspect of our stay and can’t wait to return.
I stayed here for 3 nights in late March with a group of friends. We all thought the hotel was lovely and just perfect. The bedrooms were well appointed, comfortable beds, nice toiletries; the breakfast was very nice (buffet and you can order egg dishes or churos and more); and the staff were all nice, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to find a peaceful, quiet oasis in Seville. The location is a few minutes walk from the main city center yet it is nice to not be in the chaotic mess of other tourits.
We stayed a long weekend here in mid March, as part of a BA trip and overall were really happy. The hotel was most attractively done, and clearly designed to keep you cool during the hottest time. Nice little pool and sun terrace on the top floor (we did swim and it was cold but refreshing). Lovely courtyard entrance with heavenly scent of Orange blossom in mid March. Approx 15 min quite enjoyable walk to the main sites, and some restaurants near by too. Also near 'the Mushroom', which we thought worth a visit. We didn't have dinner there, but our included breakfast was perfectly good, with cooked breakfast to order. A couple of niggles here, the cereal selection was very dull, an addition of something like granola would have been good, and the croissants had a sweet glaze on them - this was just not to our taste! Our bedroom was pretty small, room for a bed and very small table, and as already remarked, had almost no shelves, so difficult to find places to put your clothes. Bathroom was good, also shower and everything very clean. The staff at reception were excellent, spoke English, always ready to help as much as they could and were extremely friendly. Would recommend.
Lovely boutique hôtel. It’s design is typical Andalusian style. Rooms and bathroom are large, cleanliness was good (perhaps it could be improved a little bit). Walking distance from all the main attractions. Friendly staff.
Breakfast is not included.
Parking availability (in this respect, we would have appreciated that they informed us that the street in front of the hotel was closed to the traffic because of a manifestation).
We recommend it even if the quality-price ratio is too high according to us.
