Fodor's Expert Review Casa del Poeta

Calle Don Carlos Alonso Chaparro 3, 41004, Spain

Up a narrow alleyway, behind an ordinary facade, a 17th-century palace that was the haunt of Seville's poets at the end of the 19th century is now an oasis of calm. Centered on a marble-arch patio with walls in the city's hallmark red and ocher and permeated by the scent of jasmine, the palace has been restored to its former glory, preserving all its original elements. Guest rooms are light and airy, and some have intimate views of roofs and gardens. Dark wood features heavily, in keeping with the hotel's past, and the rooftop terrace takes in the lovely dome of Santa Cruz church as well as a good view of La Giralda. Breakfast is included in the room rate if you book direct.
