The Alfonso XIII palace hotel in the heart of Seville opens onto the city’s historical center. This prestigious establishment originally designed to welcome visitors to the 1929 Iberian-American Exposition plunges its guests into the refined and attractive universe of Andalusia’s high society of the previous century. The hotel’s 147 luxurious and elegant rooms and suites are decorated with precious tapestries and complete with princely comforts. The walls have preserved their past glory celebrating the splendors of Hispano-Moorish art. Entirely renovated in 2012, the interiors cast a veil of discreet luxury over this jewel of the Andalusian hotel industry. In addition, the Alfonso XIII has its own private boutiques, ideal for fashionistas coming through the Andalusian capital.


Spain is undeniably a dreamlike tourist destination. What other country possesses as many different kinds of landscapes and a pleasant climate throughout its entire territory? Since the end of the Franco dictatorship, Spain has experienced a love affair with tourists from all over the world thanks to its hospitality, its legendary fiesta like atmosphere and its gastronomy, all of which, like the climate, are warm and welcoming. Each region has its own charm and identity, and each city its own treasures and traditions. Spain is undoubtedly a country to discover and rediscover. Seville, considered the capital of the South and more officially, the capital of Andalusia, is one of the Iberian Peninsula’s most important cities. At the crossroads of different civilizations, this magnificent city has seen invasions by the Visigoths, the Moslems and the Christians, all of which have combined to make it an extremely lively, fascinating and historic city. The architectural symbol of Seville is its cathedral with its bell tower minaret, the Giralda, the vestige of a former mosque. And facing this emblematic monument, we find one of the city’s most prestigious hotels in every sense of the word.

The jewel of Andalusian hotels

Built in 1928 by order of the king whose name it bears for the Iberian-American Exposition of 1929, the Hotel Alfonso XIII was designed to be the most luxurious establishment in Europe, and eighty years later, it is still one of the world’s most prestigious addresses. Simply speaking, the Hotel Alfonso XIII is a palace, an exceptional site which has had a long line of crowned heads and heads of state as visitors. The hotel’s relatively sober façade is almost deceiving as it hides the splendor which awaits the visitor inside. Built in a “neo-mudejar” style and faithful to Andalusian traditions, the hotel is a masterpiece of luxury and refinement with inlaid ceilings, marble floors, wood carvings, tapestries and azuelos, the details of which are all designed with finesse and incredibly high quality. Reopened in March 2012 after months of renovation, the Hotel Alfonso XIII is even more outstanding than ever. The patio in the center of the hotel is a timeless space, ideal for a moment of relaxation in the heart of an unforgettable environment. The 147 rooms are all magnificent, as one might have guessed. In Baroque, Castilian and sometimes Moorish style, they have authentic walls draped in silk and linen, a classical and elegant vision of timeless luxury. The hotel has its own boutiques for shopping enthusiasts and offers tours in authentic horse drawn carriages in order to discover one of Europe’s most visited cities. Guests can also choose to relax around the swimming pool ideally located in the garden.

Originally designed to receive visitors to the Iberian-American Exposition, the hotel has remained a favorite of Seville’s high society. The eight reception rooms are among the city’s finest, especially the “Real” or Royal room, famous for its great splendor.
