"The most beautiful and charming Seville hotel"
This hotel is the loveliest I have ever seen, built from the former medieval Jewish quarter in Seville. From the Reception area, you walk along some little alleyways, past several large and small courtyards festooned with masses of colourful plants, to your rooms. On the way, your senses are treated to the sounds of trickling water features, and wonderful smells from the plants. The walls are painted in vivid earthy colours, such as ochres and terracottas, which look so good in Spanish sunshine. It's like entering another world. On the roof is a swimming pool and loungers and the views of rooftops are colourful. I couldn't stop feasting my eyes in every part of this hotel. I forgot to mention the Moorish style tiles. Wherever you look, you see artefacts from previous times - urns, sinks turned into fountains, like some wise hoarder has seen the beauty in every object kept there since the middle ages. Under the hotel is a long tunnel with a spa. We had massages, and you can use thermal pools.
The beds are firm and comfortable, the staff are helpful.
We foolishly thought the restaurant looked expensive, and treated ourselves only on our sixth (of seven) nights. I thought they had undercharged us, but no. We went straight back the next night, and had pretty much the same dishes - my favourite was a goats cheese tapas, but the chilled almond soup was also divine.
Even after a week in the hotel, it still felt a treat for all the senses - but we had to come home!
