They just don’t make them this way anymore… Built by King Alfonso XIII of Spain for the royals and VIPs attending Seville’s 1929 world fair, Hotel Alfonso XIII remains an iconic cultural landmark, centrally located in the historic quarter of Santa Cruz, next to Reales Alcázares and Seville Cathedral. It’s a prime example of Andalusian design with its mosaic-covered arches, soaring towers and an Instagram-worthy courtyard where orange blossoms surround a bubbling Moorish fountain. The hotel's innovative décor, from the lobby to the inner courtyard, continues to reflect Sevillian style.
Authentic Andalusian cuisine is served in Restaurante San Fernando, while ENA by Carles Abellán specializes in Catalonian and Andalusian dishes to share, tapas, cocktails and wines. Inspired by the hotel’s heritage, Bar Americano, offers a choice of masterfully mixed cocktails in an Art Deco setting. Setting wise, there’s no doubt that the Hotel Alfonso XIII is something special (it even had a role in the 1962 epic Lawrence of Arabia) but it’s the illustrious history here that makes a stay at this hotel feel like you’re in the center of not just the city, but the life of it. As the locals put it: Aquí está el todo Sevilla. The whole of Seville is here.
