Corral del Rey

Barrio Alfalfa, Seville, Spain


There are 4 Junior Suites, 5 Deluxe Doubles and 3 Superior Doubles, all of which can be converted into twin bedrooms. Size is what distinguishes the 3 grades; some of the cheaper rooms are quite narrow, as so often with riad-style buildings. The Junior Suites get bathtubs and kingsize beds, but the rain showers (all ensuite) in the other rooms are great, and the queensized beds perfectly comfy.

For something really special opt for the Penthouse Suite. Located on the top floor, there’s a spacious bedroom which leads out to a terrace complete with plunge pool and outdoor shower. Inside there’s living area, a kitchenette and a stunning bathroom complete with freestanding egg-shaped bathtub and walk-in shower.

The décor in all of the rooms is stylish, joining modern and classic design. Stone pillars or Moorish doors sit comfortably alongside Nicole Fabre fabrics and Lutron lighting systems. Bespoke cabinets house the mod cons, heavy wood furniture sits in the corners, and the oak-limed floors blend harmoniously into the pale umber walls. The bed linen is sumptuous and white with soft pillows, and there are twin LED reading lights.

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 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.
