This classy boutique hotel, in a refurbished 19th-century mansion, is an oasis in bustling Santa Cruz. Rooms have high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, wood floors, and antique furniture, and are tastefully decorated in subdued colors and bathrooms are large and modern—some of the superior rooms have their own patio and private Jacuzzi. The staff is lovely, and the hotel offers complimentary afternoon tea and snacks, which can be taken on the rooftop terrace with views
of the Giralda. The buffet breakfast is generous.
