Corral del Rey

Barrio Alfalfa, Seville, Spain

Eating

An excellent breakfast is served daily: warm croissants and a selection of pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice and a pot of coffee. Or you can opt for a Mediterranean breakfast - a platter of manchego, Greek yoghurt with honey, that sort of thing - along with some superb fruit and veg juices (the kiwi, apple & mint is particularly refreshing). Whilst sitting on the roof terrace later on, we were brought lemonade and salted nuts - a nice touch. There is also an all-day snack menu serving various tapas in the stylish bar area.

Guests staying in the Penthouse Suite can make use of their kitchenette for light snacks - ideal if you're having a lazy day beside your private plunge pool.

The restaurant is no longer open for dinner but there are fantastic eateries in the vicinity, especially if you're after tapas. The cod in tomato and spinach with chickpeas at Rinconcillo was great, and delicious jamon iberico hangs in most eateries. For a haute cuisine experience head to San Fernando 27 for a white truffle risotto or filet mignon, preceded by an amuse bouche of local sausage with a foam of clam. Outstanding.

Save to favouritesPrintMailCorral del ReyItís easy to walk past the Corral del Rey, which sits discreetly on a cobbled street of the same name, minutes from the bustle and beauty of the Cathedral district. Set behind heavy studded Moorish doors, it maintains a smart coolness, with the private, intimate air of the best Moroccan riads. From the small but sleek reception area, you look up a central airwell to 3 arched galleries, off which are 6 of the rooms. A stone staircase leads up past them to a roof terrace, ideal for breakfast or cocktails; a tiny plunge pool offers respite from the city heat. The rest of the rooms sit in an annex across the street. Sleekly bohemian, all of the [r:SP029:bedrooms] drip with high-end comforts, including a plasma TV with surround-sound in the bathroom, a walk-in rain shower and iPods with first-class playlists. In fact, you could easily spend the day inside and forget about seeing Seville. But try not to. The jaw-droppingly lovely Giralda, Alcazar and Gardens are just around the corner; explore further and you'll find some of the greatest tapas bars on earth. A great little hotel - more of an upmarket B&B really - which is worth a bit of a splurge.
