Corral del Rey

Barrio Alfalfa, Seville, Spain


Rooms and suites are spread across two buildings, the main hotel and a newer wing across the way. Décor is always stylish, joining modern and classic Moorish design. Stone pillars sit comfortably alongside Nicole Fabre fabrics and Lutron lighting systems. Bespoke cabinets house mod cons, oak-limed floors blend harmoniously into the pale umber walls, and there are soft white pillows amid the sumptuous bed linen.

Though some of the Superior and Deluxe Doubles are quite narrow (as so often with riad-style buildings), they retain a sense of charm. Junior Suites are larger, with bathtubs and kingsize beds, but the rain showers in the smaller rooms are great, and the queensize beds perfectly comfy.

For something really special opt fora Pool Terrace Suite or the top-floor Penthouse Suite. Their huge bedrooms lead out to private terraces complete with plunge pools and, if you choose the Penthouse, you’ll also get a kitchenette and a stunning freestanding egg-shaped bathtub in the ensuite.

We found our suite extremely comfortable and loved playing with the state-of-the-art audio-visual system, lying in the huge marble bathtub and lounging on the massive bed. Despite the heavy shutters, noise did occasionally interrupt our sleep, but inoffensively.

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.
