“A fabulous hotel in Seville’s historic centre, with views of the Giralda and lashings of urban sophistication”
The smallest rooms are the fittingly-named Small Standard Rooms, which we didn't get to see, but from the photos we'd take a punt on functional rather than indulgent. We'd definitely recommend upgrading to a much-bigger Standard Room, which have in-room tubs and views of Seville's architecture or bustling streets.
Our Superior Room with View had a charming Juliet balcony gazing towards the Giralda, while the Junior Suites with View offer a so-called VIP experience with excellent views unique design and lighting. But the jewel in EME's crown has to be its 2 exclusive Junior Suites with Terrace; a duplex at the very top of the hotel. The bed has a direct line of vision to the Giralda, and its terrace has a Jacuzzi and fabulous views over Seville.
Bathrooms throughout are a delight, with carved stone sinks, walk-in rainforest showers and/or in-room tubs.
The sleek EME Lobby and Patio Restaurant serves up Mediterranean cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere, just what you crave after a day of sightseeing and exploring. We enjoyed a simple yet tasty goat’s cheese salad followed by sautéed crayfish with artichoke, before rounding off the evening in the hotel’s Santo Copas cocktail bar.
There’s also a spectacular rooftop restaurant-bar - La Terraza - with panoramic views of the city. And nestled on the street outside the hotel, the 20 Pasoscafé has a small menu light dishes and sweet treats.
Understated Ostia Antica is an Italian restaurant serving up haute pasta, pizza and risottos. Ingredients are seasonal and many of the vegetables come straight from the local market.
In the morning, there’s a good continental breakfast buffet, the usual suspects along with a number of cooked options.
If you do decide to venture out, there are some great eateries in the vicinity, especially if you enjoy tapas. The cod in tomato and spinach with chickpeas at Rinconcillo was great, and delicious jamon iberico hangs in most eateries.
Children of all ages are welcome, though there are no particular facilities for families.
