Hotel Alfonso XIII

Calle San Fernando 2, Seville, Andalusia, 41004, Spain

Fodor’s Expert Review

Inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII in 1929 and graciously restored over the years, 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 while overlooking the fabulous central courtyard and appearing appropriately superior (and rich).
