This labyrinthine hotel occupies 24 houses and three of Santa Cruz's old palaces, each arranged around an inner courtyard with fountains, traditional tile work, and plenty of greenery, giving the impression of a self-contained village in the city center. The spacious guest rooms are painted in subdued pastels and decorated with prints of Seville; most have four-poster beds and wood beams. Breakfast is generous and includes cava (sparkling wine); the staff will also
pack you a picnic if you have to depart early in the morning. The adjoining restaurant serves Mediterranean style food.

The location and concept of the hotel are great. We were there during Holy Week 2011 for five nights. For the price, the rooms were in terrible shape. Carpets are old and dirty, furniture and draperies are literally falling apart. Bathrooms, while large, need updgrading. The bed was horrible, causing us great back pain each day. Breakfast were good. Staff are helpful and pleasant. For the money, we could have stayed at the Alfonso XIII and
