Corral del Rey

Barrio Alfalfa, Seville, Spain

Corral del Rey is in the old historic quarter of the Barrio Alfalfa of Seville, bordering the Santa Cruz district. It's a 5-minute walk from the Cathedral and a 30-minute drive from the airport.

By Air
Fly into Seville Airport (15km), also known as San Pablo Airport. Click on the links below for a list of airlines.

From the Airport
It's a 30-minute drive from the airport. The hotel can arrange a transfer or you could take a taxi, which is cheaper, although drivers are reluctant to navigate the cobbled streets so you might end up walking the last bit of your journey. (Transfers are also from their sister property Hacienda San Rafael.)

By Train from the UK
If you'd prefer to travel overland from the UK, consider going by Eurostar from London Waterloo to Paris, then changing twice. It's a bit of a journey, but if you're not pushed for time it's a great way to see Spain. See Seat 61 for more details. The hotel offers a transfer from the train station.

By Car
We wouldn't recommend driving - Seville is easily explored on foot or by tram, and driving can be a pain due to numerous one-way systems and little in the way of public parking. Having said that, if you do hire a car the hotel can provide parking in the underground car park nearby - for an additional cost.

Detailed directions will be sent to you when you book through

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 some 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. More rooms sit in annexes across the street. Sleekly bohemian, all of the [r:SP029:bedrooms] drip with high-end comforts, including plasma TVs with surround-sound in the bathroom, walk-in rain showers 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.
