The gorgeous Corral del Rey in the heart of Seville´s wonderful old quarter Barrio Alfalfa is just a short walk from the Santa Maria Cathedral. An original 17th Century Casa Palacio, it has been beautifully restored into the small private luxury hotel it is today.

With lovely architectural details such as the atrium patio, Roman marble columns and the original wooden carved beams this makes a great base, one of the best, for exploring the wonders of Seville. It´s a particular favourite of the chef Rick Stein who also recommends Casa Matias near Plaza de Toros as an authentic Flamenco bar and El Pes Quero, a fish restaurant in the Mercado del Arenal district.

This privately run hotel has 17 exquisite and unique rooms. See the beautiful Corral del Rey on
