Corral del Rey
Tucked away in one of the labyrinthine narrow streets of Seville’s old quarter, this whitewashed boutique hotel is a reinvention of a 17th-century casa palacio that preserves Roman marble pillars alongside medieval Mudéjar wooden doorways. You can see the whole city from Corral del Rey's poolside rooftop mirador…The hotel’s art gallery showcases the work of several intriguing contemporary international artists, whom Corral del Rey represent. Request a massage in the roof garden (or in the privacy of your room).
