Hotel Alfonso XIII
The property gets its name from King Alfonso XIII, who commissioned the building in 1928, striving to earn the reputation as the most beautiful hotel in Europe. The hotel is truly luxurious, with so many elegant corners and amenities that you almost have to experience it to understand its extent. You'll find four eateries, two bars, a rooftop terrace with a pool, and relaxing common areas, such as courtyards, patios, and lounges, all with elegant decor fit for royalty.
The rooms are plushy and elegant, perfectly fitting the hotel's history and atmosphere. Likewise, the bathrooms are bright and inviting, meshing white marble with unique and colorful tiling. You can book the Alfonso XIII Suite to truly feel like royalty or opt for one of the suites with private terraces.
Hotel Alfonso XIII is the perfect location for those who want to enjoy the city's buzz while in a slightly quieter area. You'll be surrounded by the Royal Alcázar, Jardines de Cristina, and the Universidad de Seville. You can reach nearly all the major sites in less than 10 minutes of walking, including the Plaza de España.
Hotel Mercer Sevilla
Hotel Mercer Sevilla is in the El Arenal neighborhood offers a boutique experience and a unique location. You'll be within walking distance to nearly everything, plus spoiled for tapas bars in the neighboring maze of side streets. You'll be just a few steps from Plaza Nuevo, so you can easily walk to the Catedral de Seville, the Royal Alcázar, Puente de Triana, and Plaza de Toros in just about 10 minutes or less.
We recommend bypassing the deluxe rooms, which feel too simple and basic for a 5-star hotel, and booking a suite instead. These upgraded rooms feel tranquil with warm wood, neutral tones, and pops of black and gold. Bathrooms are large and bright with white marble, bathtubs, and showers.
Spend time relaxing on the rooftop terrace, featuring an outdoor pool and sundeck with lounge furniture. You can order from the bar to enjoy snacks and drinks while taking in the city views. You'll also find an onsite restaurant that transforms traditional Andalusian recipes into unique and tasty concoctions, plus the FIZZ Bar, known for its cocktails.

Hotel Gravina 51
Set in the El Arenal neighborhood, Hotel Gravina 51 keeps you close to all the major sites while offering some off-the-beaten-path spots along the waterfront. The hotel's converted palace highlights typical Andalusian design, which you can enjoy on the inner courtyard patio and at the restaurant, which provides a delicious breakfast buffet with 100% local products. Another highlight of the property is that it offers parking for a fee, a handy perk for a hotel in the historic city center.
We love this boutique hotel because all the rooms, even the most standard category, feel elegant, offering a comfortable space with stately decor. Of course, you can always upgrade your room, as some have private terraces and an option for two-bedroom apartments—perfect for families or small groups. Bathrooms feel a little small, but that might be because all have bathtub-shower combos and two sinks.
You'll find Hotel Gravina 51 just steps away from Plaza Nueva, meaning you can walk to all the major sites (plus a few spots often overlooked by visitors). In just 10 minutes or less, you can visit the Muelle de la Sal on the waterfront, Plaza del Cabildo, the Catedral de Seville, or Puente de Triana. As a bonus, El Arenal and Triana (just 10 minutes away by foot) are perfect for a tapear (tapas walk from bar to bar).
Corral del Rey
Just around the corner from the Museo del Baile Flamenco, Corral del Rey is the perfect spot to experience the history of Seville. You'll be in a 17th-century building and within walking distance of nearly all the city sites, including the Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari, Catedral de Seville, Royal Alcázar, and Plaza de España.
Corral del Rey ("King's corral") maintains all the typical charms of an Andalusian house. You'll enter through two grand wooden doors and arrive at a beautiful inner courtyard with wooden and marble columns, iron railings, and stone archways. The hotel's rooftop terrace is perfect for hanging out at sunset. Grab a drink from the bar and relax in comfy lounge furniture on the sundeck. When hungry, you can enjoy a meal at the onsite restaurant/bar, which serves the daily breakfast buffet.
The rooms are bright and welcoming with an air of elegance, serene neutral tones, splashes of colorful textiles, and lots of warm wooden elements. All do a good job preserving the building's historic charm while staying a bit chic. Some rooms feature in-room soaking tubs or private terraces with pools, though the bathrooms could use an update overall.
Boutique Hotel Casa del Poeta
The "house of the poet," Boutique Hotel Casa del Poeta, restored a 17th-century house to create its unique space of boutique rooms and apartments. The entire hotel offers a serene ambiance with neutral tones and an art gallery. Though some aspects of the standard room categories could use a refresh, all units offer vintage and tranquil vibes. Families might like the apartments or duplex rooms with lofted sleeping areas.
You can enjoy the daily breakfast buffet in the hotel's lovely dining area or outside on the lower terrace. You'll find another terrace on the rooftop (reserved for guests only), with incredible panoramic views of the city, with Santa Cruz Church, the Cathedral, and Giralda Tower on display.
The hotel has an exceptional location in the heart of the historic center—slightly away from the busy sites and on a charming side street between two churches. From here, you can make your way to all the main attractions, like the Catedral de Seville, Royal Alcázar, Plaza de España, and the Jardines de Murillo.
Joya Del Casco Boutique Hotel
Joya Del Casco Boutique Hotel is housed in a 19th-century building once used by Sevillian academics, so it's no surprise that you'll find stately lounges and a small library inside. You can also enjoy the rooftop terrace, a highlight with a plunge pool, sundeck, bar, and outdoor shower. You can also relax in ground-floor lounges, the library, or the inner courtyard. Enjoy a hearty spread of homecooked goods for breakfast, like delicious cakes.
There are only two room categories at the hotel, varying only in size. The idea is to keep everything standard so you can enjoy the hotel amenities and city. Still, the rooms are comfortable, bright, and warm, with modern furnishings and bathrooms.
Tucked away on a quiet side street, the hotel puts you in the center of it all and within walking distance to nearly every city site. The Museo del Baile Flamenco is just two minutes away, while the Catedral de Sevilla and Royal Alcázar are within a five-minute walk. Keep exploring Seville's historic streets and end at Plaza de España in just 20 minutes.
Hotel Cetina Sevilla
Hotel Cetina Sevilla offers a unique mix of old and young with historic preservations meeting trendy, hipster decor. Like many Andalusian mansions, you'll find an inner courtyard patio with typical columns and wood-beamed ceilings. There are a few cozy nooks to enjoy, including three lounges with comfy and colorful furniture. The hotel serves breakfast each morning in the courtyard with natural light, thanks to the sky-high glass ceiling.
The rooms are comfortable, though a little small, with bright, colorful, and modern furnishings and decor. Some feature private terraces and outdoor baths, and the bathrooms are modern and surprisingly big. We recommend going with a superior, executive, or suite category and opting for a room that doesn't open to the inner courtyard, which can get a little noisy at breakfast time.
You'll be just down the street from a few sites that some visitors tend to overlook, including the Setas de Sevilla, Mercado de la Encarnación, and Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija. At the same time, you're still within walking distance to all the major sites. In less than 10 minutes, you can reach Plaza Nueva, the Cathedral, and the Royal Alcázar.
