With its palms and palaces, Andalucia’s most atmospheric city is a dream for children – and they’ll sleep deeply if you book a pad with Culture Trip. Here are our favourite family-friendly options in Seville.
Warmed by the southern Spanish sun, laid-back Seville has plenty to entice families. Swaying salsa dancers; buzzing markets; the atmospheric old Alcázar with gardens of orange trees. There’s plenty to fire up young imaginations between dips in the pool and naps under shady umbrellas. Parents can sip copitas of sherry and enjoy tapas feasts: slivers of jamón, creamy croquettes, plump olives. And at the end of a busy day, you can retire to an atmospheric hotel, bursting with Moorish charm or trendy style. Here are the best family-friendly hotels in Seville, Spain.

Minutes’ walk from the Royal Alcázar – a former royal palace rich in elaborate carvings, tranquil gardens and soaring arches – Hotel Casa 1800 has an old-world romance about it. Admire the tiered courtyard, twinkling chandeliers and gilded mirrors. Beyond all the elegance, it’s still family-friendly: a rooftop pool, heated by the sun, is the perfect place for your kids to cool off, and you can breakfast until 11am. Tons of free snacks make it easy to work around picky eaters.

From $162 per night per room
If one thing is guaranteed to get children’s attention at Eurostars Sevilla Boutique, it’s the pool: a glimmering turquoise slab splayed by rays, with views towards the undulating rooftops of the city and the cathedral’s Giralda bell tower. The rooms, set in a 16th-century palace, impress equally, with their floor-to-ceiling windows and dashes of plummy purple. Once your little ones are asleep, head up to the rooftop bar for a balmy nightcap – make it a nutty fino sherry.

4.9/5 (95 Reviews)

Crowned by Seville’s city hall, Plaza Nueva is a rambling strip lined with shade-giving trees. It’s a must-see square, perfect for kids who want to stretch their legs. And you’re right around the corner when you check into this boutique hotel, home to just 11 rooms in an old mansion. The sophisticated decor and swish restaurant (not to mention the excellent cocktail bar) will please grown-ups who don’t want to compromise on cool. Meanwhile, staff will make sure tykes don’t want for anything.

From $99 per night per room
You couldn’t be any closer to Seville’s famed Alcázar: this hotel bumps right up against the monument’s rambling gardens, and its breakfast area and reception even contain some of the structure’s original walls dating to the 13th century. Book into one of the suites, resplendent with marble bathrooms and chic contemporary furniture, and you’ll not only get room to spread out – you’ll have your own private terrace, backing right onto the greenery of the Alcázar’s garden.

Children will love exploring La Casas de la Judería, a hotel-meets-museum in Seville’s old town. There are 27 traditional, interconnecting Sevillian houses that hold 134 rooms, all linked by patios, gardens, passageways, tunnels and an assortment of statues, fountains and columns. With a surprise around every corner, this place feels properly old-world-atmospheric. Thanks to valet parking, it’s easy to ferry your brood to areas beyond Seville
. All that and a spectacular terrace pool, with jacuzzi area: a saviour on searing summer afternoons.

From $97 per night per room
When you’ve got kids in tow, sometimes it can be easier to eat dinner in the hotel. And this spot in the Huerta de Santa Teresa neighbourhood dishes up plenty of choice: an all-day restaurant serves international flavours, while an outdoor terrace offers Sevillian classics and two bars (one by the excellent pool). Family rooms sleeping four are modern and slick, in steely whites and greys, and come with thoughtful touches like chocolates and biscuits at bedtime.
Hotel Fernando III

From $102 per night per room
This stay, in Seville’s Santa Cruz district, strikes the perfect balance between elegant and homely. There’s a clean contemporary colour scheme to the rooms, yet the warm service makes you instantly relax as you sink into the lounge sofas. Book into one of the apartments – the finest has its own private terrace – and you can save cash by self-catering or doing your own laundry. Aim to spend as much time as possible by the rooftop pool: overlooking the cathedral, it’s open until 9pm.
Hotel Posada del Lucero
4.3/5 (615 Reviews)

From $102 per night per room
The bones are very much historical Seville: an old posada (inn) dating back to the 16th century. Expect beamed ceilings, a soaring internal courtyard and decorative archways. By contrast, the decor thrusts you into the 21st century, with mid-century modern furniture, crisp white walls and colourful throws. Book yourself into a spacious quadruple room, the perfect base for visits to the on-site terrace pool – or for exploring the local shops and restaurants.
