Palacio de Villapanés is a luxury boutique hotel set within an 18th-century mansion in Seville's historic Santa Cruz district. The building is a classic exemplar of the Mudéjar style, a Moorish interpretation of the influences of the day. And wherever possible, the building has been left intact with some chic modern furnishings and the occasional splash of color added.
The spacious, individually designed rooms too combine original features, such as parquet floors, with contemporary furnishings. Room facilities include air conditioning, Loewe satellite TV, minibar, work desk and a chic bathroom with complimentary Katari toiletries, robes and slippers. Suites also have iMacs.
The hotel offers elegant lounges and a typical central courtyard with marble columns and tiles. Traditional Andalusian cuisine is served in the restaurant, and you can enjoy tapas outside on the garden terrace. The hotel serves a breakfast at an extra cost.
There is a small spa offering massages, sauna and hammam in the basement, plus there is a rooftop terrace with plunge pool offering views of Seville's historic city centre.
24-hour front desk.
