Barrio Alfalfa, Seville, Spain
Sainsbury's Magazine, October 2014
"Book into the stylish, centrally located Corral del Rey, which is tucked away down a narrow street in the old quarter of the city. The rooms are decorated in a Moorish-meets-modern style and the simple, delicious breakfast is served in the small dining room or in your room."
Conde Nast Traveller (UK), November 2013
"Down a quiet, narrow cobbled street in Seville's old quarter of Barrio Alfalfa you'll find Corral del Rey, a charming boutique hotel which was once (upon a time) a 17th-century palace. Inside, the hotel walls are bright white, illuminated by glass and metal lanterns which hang from dark wooden ceilings. Your room has a comfy king size bed and marble bathroom with a walk-in rain shower (plus custom bathrobes). Seville's famous cathedral is just a five-minute walk away and you can see parts of the city from the hotel's rooftop terrace which has its own plunge pool. There's a bar and café downstairs with an all-day tapas menu and a select list of Spanish wines."

"Location In the barrio Alfalfa with its romantic spider's web of narrow, cobbled streets and tapas bars
Look It's set in two case palacios on opposite sides of the street. The 17th-century original house has a three-storey internal hall with pretty arcaded balcony - bijou boho in the most stylish sense."
Conde Nast Traveller (UK)
"This is the place to be if you like tapas, Moorish architecture and wandering in palm-tree-lined streets. Having partied in the chic, central Corral del Rey, with its sleek urban rooms and rooftop gardens, head out into the countryside."

“The young women who run the hotel are very good, pleasant and very helpful. The hotel itself is very nice. The rooms are a little dark, designed to keep out the heat of the day, the air conditioning is very effective and very quiet. Bed linen is of very good quality and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast room is internal with very little natural light, again for obvious reasons. The hotel is in a quiet street, a short walk from the cathedral and other places of interest. Overall, staying at Corral del Rey was a very good experience.”

“The room was very nice, very clean and attractive, very well equipped, but very noisy. We only had breakfast which was fine. The hotel appears to be run by girls only which makes suitcase handling a bit of a problem as there are lots of steps. Taxis cannot really get to it and no porters. Staff a bit overwhelmed by the small reception and clients continually arriving. Very nice place but we would not stay again.”
