Whether you want intimate and boutique or grand and palatial, Seville hotels offer an impressive spread of charming accommodations to suit every taste. Many hotels in the city feature spectacular rooftop terrace bars where you can enjoy a glass of wine or gin and tonic while surveying the breathtaking views, and most have swimming pools for those hotter months. Though the options are seemingly endless in this magical city, these are our picks for the top hotels in Seville.

Pájaro Rebelde

late-night patio Pájaro Rebelde hotel Sevilla

Fueled by a desire to share this spectacular space, French couple Olivier and Sophie Danan converted their 19th-century palace home into a stylish bed and breakfast. They employed their penchant for design with their love for the baroque and mudéjar styles already built into the space, like the colorful glass doors and geometric tiles on the walls. The boutique house in the San Lorenzo neighborhood features just seven uniquely designed rooms, each with views of the large traditional Andalusian courtyard where you can lounge amongst the orange trees and enjoy the exceptional homemade breakfast. Personal touches throughout the three-story palace from the couple’s travels, along with their warm hospitality, are a comforting reminder that you’re home away from home.

Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza

Patio hotel las casa del rey baeza sevilla

Along with comfortable, crisp rooms and a fantastic location that is quiet and serene, this hotel may have one of the most beautiful lobbies in the city. A tranquil Andalusian courtyard, cozy lounge areas with big leather couches, and lush gardens, are the pride of this top hotel in Seville. Of course, you’ll definitely want to explore the area. The winding streets of Santa Cruz that lead to this ancient farmhouse are totally picturesque and close to the major monuments and lively plazas like Alfalfa.

Alfonso XIII

Outside Alfonso XIII hotel sevilla

Built by King Alfonso XIII to accommodate the Spanish royal family for the 1929 World’s Fair, this landmark hotel has a decidedly regal design with 148 rooms and suites. It’s an experience from the moment you walk into the space, with its chandeliers and magnificent entrance. The cocktail bar screams old-world glamour, with blue velvet banquettes and gold bar stools, while Ena (named after the king’s English wife) has excellent innovative tapas served in the quiet courtyard. In the summer, the palm-shaded garden with a pool is a welcome haven. And famous folks like Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, the cast of Game of Thrones, and President Barack Obama have called this place home while in Seville.

Mercer Seville

outside entrance to Hotel Mercer

A designer mansion down a quiet yet central street in the Arenal district, this 12-room hotel conversion was done by Sevillano architects Cruz y Ortiz, who also designed the Rijksmuseum’s extension. At Mercer, the service is flawless, with elegantly dressed staff always ready to cater to your every need. Food at the Maria Luisa restaurant is superb, beautifully presented, and the creative cocktails in the bar are a must. The arcaded patio and sweeping curved staircase, along with stylish rooms, are a reminder you’re experiencing grand luxury Seville-style.

Casa 1800

Hotel Casa 1800 Sevilla suite

An olive pit’s throw from the cathedral, this charming converted palace has two lovely patios where you can have breakfast and complimentary afternoon tea. Décor is exposed brick mixed in with gilt, which works well in the 33 rooms with some of the most comfortable beds in town. The rooftop pool has a superb view of the cathedral, which seems close enough to touch. Here, in the heart of the action, you’re well-placed for a morning jaunt into the old Jewish quarter in Santa Cruz, and right next to great local tapas bars or more gourmet spots.

Palacio de Villapanés

Hotel room Villapanés Sevilla

A ducal palace, complete with magnificent stone entrance and massive coat of arms on the staircase, this has that aristocratic feel, while also boasting some sleek contemporary furniture. It has a slightly out of the way location, less central but quieter. Additionally, you’re at the Setas in less than ten minutes. You can also wind your way through the back streets to Santa Cruz, avoiding the busier thoroughfares. Their suites have high ceilings and mid-century furniture, plus fab welcome packs with local olive oil cookies and sangria. For light indulgence, the mini-spa in the basement, with steam room and Roman foot bath, is a nice touch after a day of walking the streets.

Raddison Collection Magdalena

Radisson Collection Magdalena sevilla

Somewhat unassuming on the exterior, this sleek 5* hotel in the Plaza Magdalena is anything but. The mid-century modern entrance with its sprawling but quiet lobby, is a great place to relax before heading out and exploring. And here, you’re just minutes away from some of the city’s most important monuments and some top-notch shopping. The rooms have fantastic views from the various balconies and are elegantly designed with modern luxuries. Service is especially stellar at this spot, especially when it comes to the hotel’s restaurant, Eneko BASQUE, by Michelin star chef Eneko Atxa.

Corregidor Boutique Hotel

This newly remodeled spot is just north of the center of town in the Alameda area, a funky bar-centric neighborhood that feels refreshingly different from the more traditional areas of Seville. Even so, the architecture and design of the boutique hotel still feels authentically Andalusian. This spot also has excellent Family Rooms, so kiddos and groups sleep comfortably. Most importantly, the small rooftop pool is a total luxury! And as with all H10 hotels, the breakfast spread is unbeatable.

Casa de La Plata

Located in the main shopping area, between El Salvador church and Plaza Encarnacion, this hotel has an eclectic yet warm décor. The location is very central, but as it’s a shopping area, it’s quiet in the evening and on Sundays. Within five minutes’ walk, you have more color-coordinated shoes, fans, flamenco dresses, and jewelry than a troupe of Seville fair goers. Meanwhile, the ground floor area is extremely spacious for a Seville hotel, with huge sink-into sofas, for a homely feel. We also love the traditional touches such as wooden floors and splashes of sunny yellow in the rooms, the traditional albero color of the city.

Hotel Kivir

Rooftop view of Guadalquivir river from Kivir Hotel

Overlooking the river Guadalquivir (hence the name), this contemporary hotel boasts a rooftop terrace with superb views over the iconic Triana bridge, which looks especially spectacular at night. Here, you’re perfectly placed to explore both sides of the river– Triana, with its market, ceramic tile shops, and flamenco bars, and the downtown area. Rooms are smart, modern, and comfortable with wooden floors and coffee machines; premiums have their own private terrace. Along with the rooftop bar, there’s also a sidewalk café and a ground floor restaurant serving contemporary Mediterranean cuisine.

Legado del Alcazar

With balconies and roof terraces which overlook the Alcázar gardens, this delightful boutique hotel has one of the most privileged positions in the city. It’s also steps from the cathedral, yet in a quiet location. It has heaps of character, from the floor tiles in the breakfast room/bar to the peacock painting in the patio (the peacocks from the palace used to roost here). But best of all is being next to the historic palace’s gardens. If your idea of heaven is lounging in an outdoor bath on a bougainvillea-covered balcony with treetop views, this is your place. Also, if you’re an archaeology fan, then a ground floor room with a Moorish well or Roman remains under the glass floor is for you.

Querencia de Sevilla

This new property set at the footsteps of the city’s towering cathedral, is truly exceptional. Housed in the former Bank of Andalusia, the modern design and details focus on honoring Seville culture and tradition, as well as showcasing the artisanship of the city. Rooms are gorgeous, prioritize comfort and design, and have coveted views of the cathedral. What’s more, the rooftop bar or pool has even more privileged vistas for soaking in the city below. A five-star experience in Seville has never looked so good!
