The best hotels in Seville

Let’s start this gay Seville travel guide with a roundup of the best places to stay in Seville. Located on a quiet street far from the buzz of Santa Cruz, Corral del Rey is a 17th Century palace turned boutique beauty. Adorned with bold patterned throws, pillows and artwork splashed over a backdrop of natural hues, this converted stay—comprising three separate spaces—is influenced by equal parts East Asia, Andalucía and Morocco. Offbeat offerings including two honesty bar areas, fan painting classes and sherry tastings. It’s onwards to 19th Century palace fashions at the Mercer Sevilla, with contrasting cutting-edge furnishings, clean lines and glass panels framing traditional, marble-encased interiors. As well as a modern rooftop bar, the hotel also offers an earth-hued restaurant and lounge bar, decidedly Andalusian with modern flourishes.

Situated on a quiet street a stone’s throw from the buzz-worthy Triana district’s waterfront action, Triana House is a six-room stay featuring a stylish, art deco face and sweet-smelling signature scent. The décor is fabulously monochrome with patterned floors and fabrics adorned with gold-gilded mirrors and complementing ceramics. International to the core yet still with local accents, rooms are inspired by bustling world cities with the option of a continental breakfast delivered direct to your room by smartly attired busboy.

Minutes from the city’s main attractions lies Hotel Casa 1800, an unexpected oasis decorated in an upscale mix of high-ceilinged wooden beams, period parquet flooring and crystal chandeliers in a relaxed, damask-draped atrium setting. While airy rooms with exposed brick walls and covetable Molton Brown toiletries are definite selling points, the complementary afternoon honesty bar really tops it off, hosted on the rooftop overlooking the iconic La Giralda.
