Since it opened in 2016, this 12-room hotel on a quiet street in the central El Arenal district has earned a reputation as Seville’s top, no-expense-spared, luxury bolthole.

From its former incarnation, the 19th-century Casa Palacio Castelar, there’s a marble-paved patio courtyard, now glassed, and a welcoming lounge with a splashing fountain. A magnificent sweeping stair (and a lift) lead up to the contemporary rooms and suites, many of which have private terraces.

None, however, can match the guests-only roof terrace with its pool, bar and solarium for unforgettable views over Seville, especially at sunset.

Sip perfect cocktails in the FIZZ bar, and enjoy creative  Andalusian cuisine in the hotel’s sleek Maria Luisa restaurant. It’s a lovely hotel for a special occasion or just to feel spoiled by the superb service.
