History certainly comes alive at this hotel, formerly part of the Duke of Bejar’s residence, patron of Miguel de Cervantes and lover of the art of Sevillano living. His legacy has today been transformed into a magnificent Sevilla hotel with the bedrooms offering a real taste of Seville.
The hotel comprises a number of manor houses and former palaces which beautifully preserve the memory of a bygone era. Patios, fountains, ceramic Andalusian tiles, wrought iron balconies, lattice windows and flowerpots full of geraniums captivate. Its courtyards are fabled off which the bedrooms are reached through a web of enchanting arched walkways and ornate patios. The hotel has 97 rooms, of which 24 double rooms are junior suites with a lounge area and all are complete with air conditioning, central heating, satelliteTV, mini bar, safe and telephone. Bathrooms have a hydro massage bath tub, shower unit, WC and hairdryer.
Non-smoking rooms are available.
Guests will enjoy starting each day with the impressive buffet breakfast which includes fresh fruit, a variety of breads and pastries plus local cheese and ham. For lunch and dinner guests can make the most of the hotel’s central location and savour the best of Andalucían cuisine in any number of tempting local restaurants.
The Barrio Santa Cruz is not the easiest place to navigate by car, designed, as it was, for horsemen. However, friendly hotel porters are on hand to park your car (parking charges are payable directly to the hotel) and once parked, all the famous sites are within walking distance.

Built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville is heir to a rich Arab legacy, and to the condition of being a prosperous trading port with the Americas.
Every street and square that makes up the historic quarter of the Andalusian capital bursts with joy and bustle. This area has an interesting collection of historic buildings, many of which have been declared World Heritage Sites, and also contains colourful districts with great popular flavour, such as Triana and La Macarena.
Seville is a remarkable southern business and service centre, having many hotel beds distributed all over the city allowing the visitor to discover the many attractions the city holds. Museums, arts centres, theme parks, cinemas, theatres, and banquet halls are only a few of the endless possibilities that a great city like Seville affords. And the numerous terraces, pubs and bars should not be forgotten because they are where one of the most deeply-rooted of all traditions of the city is carried out: the “tapeo”.
Another good excuse to come to the Sevillian capital are the festivals. The celebrations of Easter Week and Feria de Abril (the April Fair), which have been declared of National Tourist Interest, reflect the devotion and folklore of the people of Seville, always open and friendly to visitors. But Seville's appeal does not end there, as the city is also the starting point for the many cultural routes the province offers, such as the Roman Bética Route or the Washington Irving route.
The visitor will also discover the immense natural wealth of this region, which sits halfway between two continents, in natural treasures such as the Doñana Nature Reserve, declared a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and the Sierra Norte Nature Reserve.
They will be the ideal setting for practising outdoor sports, including hiking, horse riding, and cycling routes. If, on the other hand, golf is your sport of choice, then you will be glad to know that Seville has four excellent golf courses in its vicinity.
