Expert reviews

New York Times review:

“The 50-room Hotel Palacio Villapanés is a converted 18th-century Sevillian baroque palace with lacelike iron gates and a traditional open, marble-pillared courtyard that doubles as a palm garden and cocktail lounge. Rooms feature wooden flooring and fluffy white duvets and a minibar with all of its contents free, including fizzy sangria in a bottle.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Seville.

CN Johansens review:

“Located a 15-minute walk from Seville’s treasured cathedral, Royal Alcázar and The Archive of the Indies, Palacio de Villapanés feels both off-the-beaten-track and close to the city’s sights. It’s also a rare marriage of bygone grandeur and high-end 21st-century exclusivity.”

Won the CN Johansens Award for Best Value Experience in 2021.

Telegraph review:

“Who wouldn’t want to stay in an 18th-century palace with gorgeous contemporary designer furniture? Excellent service, beautiful patios and chic rooms designed for elegant lounging, as well as a rooftop pool and bar, make this one of Seville’s most effortlessly stylish choices.”

What guests liked

All you need to know

What was once an 18th-century mansion is now the Palacio Villapanes, one of Seville’s most stylish boutique hotels. This structure is an ideal example of the Mudejar style, and the building’s original features have been left intact as much as possible. Trendy furnishings and bold colors have occasionally been added to provide a touch of contemporary style.

Comprising 50 rooms, this hotel has four rooms to choose from: the Deluxe Room, Premium, Palacio, and Suite. Each room accommodates two guests, but as you upgrade, the square footage increases with an added sitting area. Suites offer separate living spaces and iMac computers. Some rooms come with balconies and city views. Each room includes WiFi, flatscreen TVs, high-end toiletries, air conditioning, and mini-fridges.

Each guest of Palacia Villapanes will receive a complimentary welcome drink and access to the wellness area, which includes a gym, sauna, Turkish bath, massages, and other spa treatments. The hotel restaurant, Lost Roncones Del Marques, serves authentic Andalusian cuisine and is open 24 hours a day. There is also an onsite bar, a courtyard, a roof terrace, and a garden patio, so lovely spaces for relaxation abound.

Coolrooms Palacio Villapanes is situated near several attractions, including the Indias Archive Building, Bario de Santa Cruz, and the Contemporary Art Museum. Alcazar Palace and the Cathedral are only about a 12-minute walk, and the metro station is a 13-minute walk, so the entire city will be at your fingertips.

A gem location tucked away from the business of the city.

We stayed at this hotel 10 years ago and were so impressed that we had to revisit the hotel. It met all of our expectations! The rooms are exquisite, courteous and friendly staff and within walking distance to all the main sites. There are many restaurants within walking distance for dinner.

Relaxing to the max in affordable luxury

The ambience - staff, history and design were in that order all amazing. Breakfast was fantastic too - no buffet and healthy options. Perfect

Suite was a lovely spacious room but very dark. Breakfast was excellent in lovely courtyard. Location was fairly central

Lovely building

Felt a little chaotic at reception with lack of engagement

Common areas, dinning room

Bedroom was small and dark


25 October 2023


Beautiful hotel. Delicious food in the restaurant. Great location.

Only complaint was that it would have been nice to order breakfast items a la carte instead of paying a set amount even if you ate very little. That resulted in a very expensive breakfast for a small amount of food.

Clean, beautiful building

Small window in room Breakfast not outside, after rain

Super comfortable,luxurious and very enjoyable

The hotel is beautiful and located in a great part of the city. The reception staff and bell boys were very polite and helpful

They didn’t have draft beer available which was disappointing as bottles just don’t cut it.

I stayed at 4 hotels in this Spain trip and staying in this hotel was one of the most memorable events!

Stunning and beautiful interior design Spacious room Comfortable bed

No view from my room 002

We loved our time in Seville and staying at the hotel.

Really friendly and helpful staff, relaxing, stylish place with a great bar.

Room was really lovely, well designed and comfortable but it was at street level looking right on to the street so we could had to keep the windows shut and curtains drawn, missed some of the great ‘vibe’ of the area and had to put up with people and cars dawdling and making noise right outside the window at all times of the day.

Beyond expectations

Our rooms are stunning. Absolutely beautiful property.

The only thing is the room was a bit dark. Very dark in the toilet room. Staff offered to assist but it was not a big deal. As a women, putting on makeup, that made it a bit difficult.


27 September 2023


One of the best hotels I ever visited. The location, the building, the stuff - perfection.

The breakfast could be better (3 slices of tomato is not a dish you place in a separate line inside the menu). The design of the bathroom is cool but it suits only very short people. Even I with my 165 cm found it very uncomfortable.


19 September 2023

An unforgivable Andalusian stay

We loved the Palace, the "Palacio Suite", and the hotel facilities for their design, structure, and details. We appreciated the attention of the Hotel Staff and their professionalism. Not to mention its convenient location and competitive rates.

The small rooftop pool could be better if heated.


15 September 2023

Chic and discreet, a really wonderful stay.

Fantastic location, chic, and a sanctuary to come back to after a busy day. A special mention to absolutely brilliant concierge, they were so helpful every time, and helped make our stay even more wonderful. Highly recommend.

Immerse yourself in royal Spain

Beautiful authentic palace with more than amazing staff!

Don’t take the room on the first floor because of the lack of light.


13 July 2023


Beautiful hotel, historical and great rooftop at sunset. Food and breakfast also beautiful.
