Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza

Hospes Las Casas Del Rey De Baeza

Hospes las Casas del Rey de Baeza began life as an 18th-century home and was later converted into apartments for the Seville Expo '92. In 1998, the property was transformed into a hotel that retains a distinct sense of Andalusian charm with its whitewashed façade and cluster of internal cobbled patios. Just a 15-minute walk from the cathedral, the hotel makes an ideal base for exploring the city.

The hotel consists of a string of linked houses surrounding a central courtyard where potted plants and climbing vines grow. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner sitting at the tables here.

Traditional Andalusian decor features heavily throughout in the terracotta, stone and cobbled floors and the blue-painted wooden stairs that lead to the 41 rooms. Each room boasts a wrought-iron bed frame, a tiled floor and jute matting.

On the roof, looking out across Seville’s rooftops, you’ll find a bar and terrace next to the solarium and pool (well sized for the city). The hotel also has a small beauty and treatment area in the attic.

An à la carte breakfast of hot and cold dishes is served on the central patio. You can also enjoy lunch and dinner here or inside Restaurante Azahar, with its choice of the chef’s tasting menu of local dishes or an à la carte selection of Andalusian classics. Aside from the restaurant, you can enjoy a drink or light snack on the rooftop bar overlooking the Seville skyline.

Facilities and activities

The hotel has a rooftop pool that’s a good-size for the city, as well as a small beauty and treatment area on the top floor.
