Inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII in 1929 and restored in 2011, this grand hotel is a splendid, historic, Mudejar-style palace, built around a central patio and surrounded by ornate brick arches. Classic meets modern throughout the hotel and public rooms have marble floors, wood-panel ceilings, heavy Moorish lamps, stained glass, and ceramic tiles in typical Seville colors. The hotel has three restaurants and the elegant Bar Alfonso. If you can't afford a room, you can
still enjoy the sumptuous surroundings: sip a glass of fino (sherry) while overlooking the fabulous central courtyard and appearing appropriately superior (and rich).
