Opened in 2022, it's centred around a flamboyant patio – where terracotta statues of the four seasons evoke the facade of a neoclassical temple – and topped by a sunny roof terrace. Inside are a flamboyant salon and seven plusher-than-plush bedrooms. Dazzling decor combines geometric patterned marble floors, mirrored ceilings, ornate wallpapers and jazzy fabrics, retro brass fittings and original prints, Art Deco lamps and gold-edged mirrors.
But the hotel's beauty is not just in the decorative detail: it also comes in the exceptional care you’re offered by the hotel’s staff. With so few rooms, they have time for caring and sharing, whilst the hotel’s 'My Secret Places' guide will help you discover jewels in Triana that you might otherwise miss. All this, and you're just a 15 minute stroll via the El Puente de Triana bridge to the busier side of the river and the historic centre – where the Giralda, Alcázar gardens and beautiful Santa Cruz quarter await.
- This is the first really special small hotel we’ve discovered in the ebullient Triana district – after years of looking
- It's an authentic neighbourhood with buzz and beauty – but hardly any other tourists
- Bedrooms are exceptionally quiet given their city centre location
- The first hotel in Andalucia with coveted Passivhaus eco-status: nearly all its energy is solar-generated and the CO2 reduction equates to planting 3000 trees annually; radiant marble floors for cooling and heating the rooms
- Breakfast can be served up on the rooftop terrace from where you look out to the Santa Ana Church tower
- No twin rooms and no extra beds: it's more of a couples' hideaway
- In colder weather, breakfasts are currently served in your bedroom. It’s a bit of a kerfuffle but by the end of the year a new basement bar and dining room will be in place
- It’s a 15-minute walk to the Cathedral and most of the sights, but it’s precisely this separation that keeps you away from the touristy shops, restaurants and brouhaha of Seville’s busy centre
- No pool

Our top tips
Talking of local flavour, a number of places offer half-day cookery courses. It’s a great way to meet up with an interesting bunch of fellow travellers whilst delving into the food and flavours of southern Spain.
If you want to the historic centre of Seville, go electric and take an e-bike tour: you’ll cover a lot of ground and the city is well geared up for two-wheeled movement.

This is where the hotel really stands out: its seven theatrical bedrooms gild the lily, both literally and metaphorically. They commingle geometric and floral motifs, with clever use of mirrors enhancing the sense of space. Rooms are mostly of modest size, but really don’t feel small. Mattresses (all queensize), pillows and bed linen are best-of-the-best. And instead of a bog-standard smart TV, your screen is hidden within a huge gilt-framed mirror that faces your bed: a suitably opulent touch.
On the ground floor, Huelva and Cádiz (Standard) are both courtyard-facing. On the next floor up, Cádiz (also Standard) gives on to the courtyard, whilst Sevilla (Deluxe) is more spacious, with street-facing windows. Our first floor room, Jaén (also Deluxe), was simply sumptuous and riotously festive. Slightly larger than most, street-facing but really quiet, it has original oriental-themed artwork in both the bedroom and bathroom. On the second floor is Granada (another Standard) and Málaga - dubbed Premium thanks to its private roof terrace.
Bathrooms are just as festive, and charged with rain showers and a bunch of spoiling Penhaligon products.
- Complimentary mini-bar
- Safe box
The buffet breakfast is hard to beat: a huge continental spread with several different breads, freshly cut fruit, cheeses, local hams, jams and honey: you name it. In good weather it's served in the patio or on the rooftop terrace; otherwise - until the new dining space is ready - it's laid out in your room (a bit of a squeeze) by the hotel's uniformed maids. Either way, expect beautiful linens, cutlery and crockery.
For other meals, whether you’re looking for fine dining or authentic tapas bars, your start point should be Triana House´s pocket-sized guide, My Secret Places. It lists some great bars and restaurants, ice cream and cake shops, as well as late night tipples.
A few pointers from us, too. Just round the corner from the hotel Vega 10, is a great choice for an intimate meal à deux: innovative tapas with a middle eastern twist. In La Antigua Abacería, also a stone’s throw away, both food and ambience are genuinely sevillano. In epicentre of Triana’s outdoor life, we love La Casa de María's top end Spanish cuisine. And on any night when it’s warm enough for sitting out, grab a late night copa at one of the bars which fan out along Calle Betis on the Guadalquivir’s southern bank.
