Witness the wealth that once flooded into the Spanish city of Seville in the countless palacios, mansions and other grand residences that line the city streets. Many of these have been restored to their former glory in the form of swanky hotels, complete with rooftop pools, refined dining and 21st-century tech. Whether you visit to explore the Plaza de España or marvel at Seville Cathedral, here’s our guide to the city’s boutique accommodation.

1. Casa del Poeta

With age-polished flagstone floors, an enviable collection of classical artworks and a grand open-air patio brimming with plant life, Casa del Poeta combines a sense of timeless sophistication with a cosily inviting ambience. This restored 17th-century mansion also offers the elevated levels of quality you’d expect from a five-star property, including Egyptian cotton with a super-high thread count, and premium brand bath products in the rooms. Breakfast is served each morning in the courtyard, while by night regular guitar performances add an air of Andalucian magic.

2. Corral del Rey

Hidden among a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets in the Alfalfa neighbourhood, Corral del Rey is a meticulously restored 17th-century palacio run by a pair of English brothers. The vibe is a mixture of exotic North African, neo-classical and Andalucian tradition, assuredly combined with a flourish of low-key luxury. Art-filled yet restful rooms all come with espresso machines and fluffy robes, while the swankiest add private pool terraces with views to the nearby cathedral.

3. Casa Romana Hotel Boutique

As the name suggests, this upscale boutique hotel is themed around classical Rome. You’ll find plenty of Roman-inspired art scattered around this converted 18th-century mansion, complemented by busy geometric tiling and plenty of polished marble. There’s a lovely rooftop area with a cocktail bar, comfy seating and views over the Seville cityscape. Up here you can also soak tired limbs in a spacious hot tub, before flopping in the sun on a neighbouring lounger.

4. Hotel Boutique Doña Lola

With a striking crimson facade, this bijou LGBTQ-friendly hotel stands out on a pretty tree-lined lane in the heart of Seville. Each of the nine rooms is named by colour – rather than number –around which the decor is aptly themed. A sizeable rooftop terrace features a six-person jacuzzi, which can also be booked for private evening sessions, plus there’s a separate zone for nude sunbathing. Studio and one-bedroom apartments are also available just across the road.

5. Hotel Casa Imperial

With two tranquil patios lined with columned arches and dotted with plants, there’s an immediate sense of peace upon stepping into Hotel Casa Imperial. Arabian flourishes fuse with traditional Sevillian decor in this 16th-century building, emphasising their overlapping history. Positioned just on the outskirts of Casco Antiguo, many of the historic city attractions are within easy strolling distance, including the Casa de Pilatos palace just around the corner from the hotel.

6. Hotel Boutique Palacio Pinello

You’ll likely spend much of your stay at Palacio Pinello gazing upward, thanks to both the stunning collection of colourful coffered ceilings and a grand centrepiece skylight. Modern art also decorates this former 15th-century palace, which balances original period features with cosy modern accommodation. They offer an excellent restaurant where they whip up tapas and more with a strong Andalucian accent, all just a block from Seville Cathedral.

7. Hotel Las Casas de El Arenal

Connected by patios and hallways, Las Casas de El Arenal resulted from the joining of two 18th-century former residences. Interiors lean towards the opulent, with plenty of heavy drapery, antique furnishings and high-beamed ceilings. It’s set on a cobbled, tree-lined lane in the centre of Seville, so you’re just a five-minute stroll from some of the top historic gems in the city such as Seville Cathedral and La Giralda bell tower.

8. Unuk Soho Hotel
