Named after King Alfonso XIII, who first commissioned the hotel to accommodate royalty and dignitaries for the 1929 Expo, this is a property with grandeur built into its DNA. Though now managed by the Marriott Luxury Collection, the hotel still feels entirely individual in style and perfectly in keeping with its surroundings in the heart of Seville’s historic centre.
Regional Andalucian and Moorish design flourishes pervade the hotel interiors, from the colourful azulejo ceramic tiles and symmetrical stone arches to the charming central patio and courtyard. The terrace of the San Fernando restaurant is a particularly atmospheric venue for sampling fine, seasonal cuisine. Taking a cooling dip in the palm-lined outdoor swimming pool is a must on Seville’s long and heady summer afternoons.
148 rooms and suites offer views of either the tranquil gardens or the city’s terracotta rooftops with the Giralda bell tower in the distance; upgrade to a Grand Deluxe room with private terrace to further capitalise on these views, or to one of the suites for vast living spaces and opulent interiors. Dining options at the hotel include Andalucian fine dining under the Moorish arches at San Fernando, tempting tapas on the outdoor terrace of Ena Sevilla, or international favourites and light bites under the shade of the palms at the Pool Restaurant.
