Distinct and perfectly placed

by written on January 3, 2010

No, we didn't stay there, but the classic beauty of the building and its perfect location make it, maybe the best option in Seville.

Well, for those who can afford it...

Unique Quality: By Jerez Gate

Hotel Alfonso XIII

by written on October 22, 2008

The beautiful Hotel Alfonso XIII has a 5* rating and is one of the best hotels in Spain. In 1928 the King of Spain (Alfonso XIII) commissioned the construction hoping the hotel would become the most lavish hotel in Europe and in time for the Iberio-American Expo in 1929. The architecture and furnishings are pure luxury.

There are a total of 147 rooms, all beautifully decorated with walls of blended linen and silk and bathrooms of marble and Sevillion ceramic tiles. All rooms have a minibar, safe, aircon/heating, internet access and satellite TV.

The San Fernando Restaurant offers an authentic Andalusian menu as well as a choice of international cuisine. There is also 2 bars, a hairdresser and a shopping arcade.

Unique Quality: The grounds are made up of well manicured gardens and courtyards with fountains and a outdoor pool and solarium.

Its a Sercotel hotel group, old one but recently refreshed the crew is cool but smily, and rooms are not so new...But its comfortable, even if the isolation is light...On Saturday night its difficult to sleep, because many people are wiring in the streets...That's Sevilla...

Unique Quality: A pool on the top of the hotel with a terrace, but in November we cant enjoy it...A Garage shared with an other sercotel (Rey AlphonsoX ) situated infront and recently rebuilt.

Directions: Just on the side of Casa de la Juderia....

Since most of the people on the bus were taking a lame Boat Trip, ( optional ) Hansi, Goldie & I decided we would do something else. Hansi went his way and took some movies of the area around the Golden Tower. Goldie and I just had to check out the posh hotel, a short ten minute walk away. THE HOTEL ALFONSO XIII was constructed for the Hispanic-American Fair in 1929 in Neomudejar style. It's considered to be one of the best hotels in Spain. Our tour guide said famous Hollywood actors and Toreadors ( Bullfighters ) usually stayed here.
Well it sure was elegant. Goldie and I walked in like we owned the place. We passed the magnificent lobby with its marble floors and carved wood ceiling. We came across an open-air terrace, where it was all set up for a gathering. We peeked into one room which had chairs with white crisp covers - perhaps for a wedding ceremony.
You've got to see this place even if you can't afford the $350.00 + US. to stay in this five-star Hotel.

Directions: Next to Puerto de Jerez
Short walk to Golden Tower and Cathedral

Best hotel in town

by written on November 9, 2005

Unfortunatly I have never sleep in one of their rooms but I have get something at its bar. There are a few but the place for a drink I like more are the armchairs and tables surrounding the courtyard.
By the way if you can afford it staying at this hotel must be a good experience because it's not just an expensive hotel, but a very elegant way to visit Seville. Each room has classy furniture with all the current facilities.

Desgraciadamente nunca he dormido en una de sus habitaciones, pero sí he tomado algo en su bar. Hay unos pocos, pero el lugar que prefiero para tomar una copa son los sillones que hay rodeando el patio.
Por otro lado si puedes permitírtelo sería una buena experiencia alojarse en este hotel, porque no es sólo un hotel caro, sino una manera muy elegante de visitar Sevilla. Cada habitación tiene muebles clásicos con todas las comodidades actuales.

Unique Quality: This building was built for the Hispanic-American fair in 1929 in Neomudejar style. It's decorated with typical sevillian tiles and noble woods inside. It's considered to be one of the best hotel in Spain.

Este edificio fue construido para la Exposición Hispano-Americana de 1929 en estilo neomudejar. Dentro está decorado con típicos azulejos sevillanos y maderas nobles. Se considera uno de los mejores hoteles de España.

Sevilla's Finest Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 7, 2005

This was my second stay at the Alfonso XIII -- both were excellent overall.

The hotel itself could not be more picturesque. From the outside, it resembles a palace (and is in fact walkign distance from the old palace and gardens). The inside still features cavernous common rooms and spacious guest rooms filled with genuine antiques and/or good reproductions.

The pool is great -- a very 1920's feel to the area! Spend a morning siteseeing and come back to spend a few hours lounging poolside with a sangria in hand.

The service is very good, but not excellent. Personally, I blame this on having become part of the Westin chain. You will be treated very well, but will feel as though the staff is being paid to do this (which, of course, they are ... but it should not feel this way). The concierge staff was, for example, very helpful in making dinner reservations, but not particularly creative in their suggestions nor overly friendly. A final caveat on this point .... we had just come from the Ritz Madrid where the service was possibly among the best I'd ever experienced. The bar was set a bit higher than normal for Alfonso XIII.

All that said, this is definitely a "don't miss" hotel!

Unique Quality: Ideally located. Large, well-appointed rooms. Beautiful pool. You'll feel like you stepped back in time each time you look at the fabulous entrance to this hotel.

The Cream of the Crop

by written on December 15, 2002

The Alfonso XIII is largely regarded as the best hotel in Sevilla. The marble floors, arches, plants, artwork and fountains make the public areas of this place stand out. Of course, since I didn't stay here, I don't know what the rooms are like. I can only imagine that they are beautiful as this is a first-class establishment. The building itself is a Mudejar palace that was built in the early 20th century.

Unique Quality: There is a Japanese restaurant, a bar, a pool and all the modern amenities you could want. It is also conveniently located near most of the major sights (5 minutes from the Cathedral, Alcazar, Plaza Espana and Barrio Santa Cruz). Check out their website (below) for more information, prices and great historical and architectural details.

Directions: Near the University

The Hotel King Alfonso XIII is the best in town and is where all the dignitaries stay when they are in town.

We were lucky enough to get a room here on Easter weekend in 2001 and it was the best $350 ever spent per night.
The room was facing the Easter parade that is held in Seville each year.

Unique Quality: The wood decorationsand the elevator are just grand and the staff is so helpful.
I would stay here again if given the chance.
It was so romantic.

I have not had the pleasure of staying in this hotel just yet. But I promise to do so on my next visit to Sevilla. Fingers crossed.

One of the finest hotels in the world can be found right here in Sevilla. If money is not an issue to you or if you're a successful career woman/ businessman vacationing in this city for the first time, may I highly recommend the Hotel Alfonso XIII, a 1929 landmark built by King Alfonso XIII to house his many VIP guests.

Today, this hotel is still the meeting point for Sevillano high society.

I have never been in a hotel, so it´s a little difficult for me to recommend you anyone. There is a lot to choose, but if you are comming in holidays you should prebook it previuoly. Overall during the Holy Week and the Feria, instead you want to pay a lot of money.
You could find a room from around 18€ (more or lees) in a Pension and (like everywhere) as expensive as you want in five stars hotels.

Directions: The picture correspond to the Hotel Alfonso XIII, the most famous and best hotel in the city.

An absolutely gorgeous hotel. Go see it even if you can't afford to stay there. If you are in Seville for the Easter procession, it is along the route.

$350 a night.
