    Location 9.9 /10

    The Doņa Maria hotel is located opposite the Giralda and the cathedral on Don Remondo street, a few feet from Alcázar palace, in the historical Santa Cruz district at the heart of Seville. The closest metro station is Puerta Jerez (line 1). The closest bus stop is in Garcia de Vinuesa street (line C5). The MetroCentro tramway passes close to plaza Nueva (Nueva square), where the town hall is located. As for Don Pablo international airport, it is 8 mi away, 20 minutes should suffice for the transfer.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    Each room in the Doņa Maria hotel is unique and dedicated to a distinguished lady from Seville society. Despite the most famous one being Doņa Maria, they are all decorated to a level of style and taste fit for a princess! Whether decorated in blue, red or pink, the wallpaper is always the same colour as the curtains, sheets, pillows and armchairs. All rooms are fitted with elegant parquet flooring, a satellite television (26 channels), individual air conditioning, a mini-bar refrigerator, a direct phone line, free WiFi Internet access and a safe that can be used free of charge. You can relax and read on one of the two chairs set next to the round glass table, or in the armchair at the desk. There is also a large oval mirror to tell you if you are the prettiest princess of them all! In 16 of the rooms, a window, or a small balcony for a lucky few, affords a fine view of the cathedral. Room service is available from 7:00am to 2:00am. The all-marble bathroom includes a bathtub with a flexible shower head and handle, a toilet, a bidet, tissues, a hair-dryer, a double washbasin and hospitality products. The suites on the ground floor look out onto the patio. The lounge is separated from the bedroom by a sliding wooden door, the toilets are in a separate room, and the Renoir on the wall is, of course, a print!

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The hotel building was originally a 14th century palace which was renovated in 1929 for the Ibero-American exhibition. It is an elegant building (four floors high with 2 lifts), which has housed the Doņa Maria hotel since 1969. The 65-room hotel was most recently renovated in 2008. The building used to be the palace of the Marquis and Marquise de la Peņa, who, following their death, left it to their daughter, Doņa Maria, after whom the hotel is named. The charm of the place is apparent from the moment you step through the magnificent original porch into the lobby, with its vaults, brick columns and oriental tapestries. It is really worth taking the time to admire the numerous details jostling for attention: the clock, decorative ceiling light and chandelier; a statue; a painted wooden sculpture of Saint Isidore of Seville and another of Mary Magdalene; a wooden chest and a collection of Andalusian fans, pretty 19th century paintings, a magnificent bouquet of flowers and so on. In short, it is a treasure trove of art. There is even a helmet that belonged to the Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortčs, in the manager's office! Furniture from the El Salvador Church is also dotted around the hotel, even in the corridors and staircases. The wooden lobby bar welcomes you into a cosy setting from 11:00am until midnight. If you prefer, you can enjoy a glass of wine on the flower-filled outdoor patio or head for the smoking lounge, which also has games and a widescreen plasma television. The hotel's panoramic roof terrace affords unobstructed views of the Giralda and provides an ideal setting for the rectangular swimming pool, which is 50 ft long and nearly 5 ft deep. It is open from 11:00am to 8:00pm. Water pours out through the mouths of two sculpted lions set on top of an old drinking trough for horses. The wooden sun terrace has a shower and deckchairs.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Breakfast is the only meal on offer, served from 7:30am to 10:30am (and up to 11:00am on the weekend), but the food is excellent. It is served in the elegant conservatory patio room, which is nicely decorated and embellished with paintings, fake palm trees and a marble floor. The buffet is both varied and delicious, with home-made pastries, cereal, the standard hot dishes (bacon, omelette, sausages), cheese and cold meats washed down with divine freshly-squeezed orange juice. You can also have breakfast brought to your room or, better still, enjoy it on the panoramic terrace as you admire the Giralda. The terrace bar serves sandwiches and snacks from 11:00am to 2:00am from April to October (and from 3:00pm to 11:00pm from November to March).

    To know

    The Doņa Maria is an independent family-run hotel belonging to Doņa Federica de Vallés, the Marquise of San Joaquin. Its panoramic terrace, which has a swimming pool, is a magical place to linger over a cocktail as you admire the Giralda just across the street. The cathedral and Alcázar palace are also only a stone's throw away.

      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.

      This three-star establishment, which belongs to the 'Casas y Palacios de Espaņa' 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.

With 32 patios, gardens full of flowers and adorned with fountains, a swimming pool, guest rooms fit for the Palace of Versailles, paved alleyways, first-class cuisine, a breath-taking all-mosaic spa and even an underground gallery, among other surprises, this really is a exceptional place to stay! So what are you waiting for? This unique hotel is a combination of a Moroccan Riad, an Andalusian village and a palace straight out of the Thousand and One Nights! It is one of our favourite things about Seville.

      The Inglaterra exudes the kind of distinctive charm of an establishment with a real history. One of the first hotels in its category to open in Seville, it has managed to retain some of the features that have made it famous since that date back in 1857. The current building was erected in 1968. The faįade could be more attractive and the breakfast room is also rather low on appeal. Inside, the hotel logo displayed on the various stained glass windows and furniture, in addition to the types of wood used and the Irish bar (which opened in 1995), make the place feel both classic and unique at the same time.
