Amy Adejokun Section editor

This charming boutique hotel stands in the Judería district and is British-owned. Its 6 guest rooms are all different and it's clear that a great deal of time and effort was been put into the renovation of this former private residence, which dates back to the 17th century. If you're not very familiar with the city, the staff here will be happy to offer up countless options and ideas when it comes to getting out and exploring the more authentic side of the city. Music-lovers, too, will be delighted to find that the rooms come with their own musical instruments, along with musical programmes specially designed for guests at the Corral del Rey. The bar, meanwhile, also serves as an exhibition space for various painters and photographers throughout the year.

    Location 9.36 /10

    The hotel stands on the Calle Corral del Rey, a small street in the city's Judería district, and is just a 5 minute walk from the cathedral and just over 6 mi from the airport, with a transfer time of around 15 minutes by car.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The Corral del Rey has only 6 guest rooms, all of which are different but each as charming as the last. Some even boast exposed-beam ceilings, as well as light parquet flooring, with the bathroom door and the colours used for the furniture and the walls are designed to match. You'll find an arrangement of flowers adorning the desk area, as well as a selection of books and novels under the television screen (which is tucked away in a unit) and a DVD-player (a selection of films is available from reception). If you like your music, you'll no doubt be pleased with the high-quality sound facilities in each bedroom, complete with an iPod and a playlist especially designed for guests staying here. Just so you don't waste too much time looking for them, we'll help you by saying that the remote controls for the television and sound facilities can be found on the bedside table. The Junior Suites are, of course, more spacious and come with 2 wardrobes, 4 speakers (one in each corner of the room), a bathtub, and a separate Italian-style shower, not to mention adjustable lighting in the bathrooms. Amenities in the bathrooms, meanwhile, include a hair-dryer, a make-up mirror, and a selection of orange blossom hospitality products by Damana.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Since opening in 2007, this boutique hotel in the Alfalfa district of the city has already won over representatives of the famous Tatler guide, which listed this place as one of its 101 recommended hotels worldwide. This 17th century former private residence was in ruins when it was bought by new English owners. After much renovating, the end result is truly amazing. The external structure has been preserved whilst the interior has been fully renovated. Behind the large wooden main door and a second door beyond that, you'll find yourself in a small courtyard surrounded by archways. The ground floor also showcases some beautiful original wooden beams which have now been restored. Over in the reception area you'll find a white armchair positioned under a large mirror where you can wait to check in if need be, or maybe flick through one of the interior design books provided on the table, one of which is about the Corral del Rey. Among the decorative pieces on the first floor you'll find a sculpture of an old horse on a wooden table and various paintings, including an abstract piece and a watercolour. What's really worth taking a look at here though is the top floor, which has a terrace affording some amazing views. It is furnished with a few green-cushioned deckchairs, coffee tables, and wicker chairs where you can even have breakfast should you so wish.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    There is no restaurant at the hotel but a breakfast of croissants, toast, various breads, butter and jam, fresh orange juice, and tea and coffee is served daily. The long breakfast room is located near the courtyard on the ground floor and features a large striped bench seat, plenty of paintings, and exposed wooden beams on the ceiling. The work of various painters and photographers is also exhibited here throughout the year. A selection of Italian, British, and American newspapers are also provided so that guests of these nationalities can keep up-to-date with the news back home. The bar is located in the same room and is open all day long.

    To know

    Parking is not allowed in front of the hotel entrance so you're better off asking the taxi driver to drop you off on the corner of Candilejo and Cabeza del Rey don Pedro.

      This three-star establishment, which belongs to the 'Casas y Palacios de España' group, could barely be in a better geographical location than its address at the heart of Seville. The interior design features a combination of Andalusian items and more classic decorative objects. The guest rooms, which are spread over three floors accessed via a lift, are spacious and practical. The pleasant inner courtyard is brightly lit through its vaulted, coloured-glass roof, and is the perfect place to sit with a book or just unwind with a little something to drink. However, the breakfast room and lobby have a somewhat cold appearance.
