Casa del Poeta

Calle Don Carlos Alonso Chaparro 3, Seville, Andalusia, 41004, Spain

Fodor’s Expert Review

Up a narrow alleyway, behind an ordinary facade, a 17th-century palace is a cool oasis of calm just a heartbeat from some bustling Santa Cruz streets. The palace, the haunt of Seville's poets at the end of the 19th century, has been totally restored to its formal glory, preserving all its original elements. Centered around a marble-arch patio with walls in the city's hallmark red and ocher, and permeated by the scent of jasmine, all 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.
