Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“No question about it, this is the swankiest address in town. Hotel Alfonso XIII is a palace built for King Alfonso XIII of Spain to host important guests when Seville hosted its great exhibition in 1929.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Seville.

Fodors review:

“Inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII in 1929 when he visited the World’s Fair, this grand hotel next to the university is a splendid, historic, Mudejar-style palace, built around a central patio and surrounded by ornate brick arches. Classic meets modern throughout the hotel, which has been graciously restored over the years.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Seville.

Telegraph review:

“This magnificent landmark hotel framed by palm trees is a much-loved piece of Seville’s history. With lamps bearing crowns and regal beds, you could say it’s fit for a king or queen. It’s also one of only two five-star Gran Lujo hotels in the city, and offers on-site cooking courses and wine tastings.”
