Hospes las Casas del Rey de Baeza – A Historic Stay in Seville, Spain

Hospes las Casas del Rey de Baeza – A Historic Stay in Seville, Spain

Sitting cozy at the heart of Seville’s historic center is Hospes las Casas del Rey de Baeza, a boutique hotel with the aspirations of luxury, total relaxation and wellbeing of its guests. In the 18th century, it was a neighborhood patio, and the beautiful architecture from that time immediately set the scene for our perfect vacation getaway in Spain. The terracotta and pipeclay architecture, along with the patios and galleries of the building, are typical of Sevillian architecture.  It’s no surprise that the entire building has been declared a National Monument, one that we explored and marveled at during our stay.

There are forty-one rooms to choose from, all decorated in a rustic and minimalistic style. All rooms look out over the main courtyard.  Our room was the ‘Dreamer’ with white walls and natural light coming in from the windows, giving it an open and airy feeling to the space.  In the evenings, we closed the wooden shutters behind the curtains for privacy.  Each room has its own unique decorations all done in the Sevillian style.

Outside our window were straw window shades which we were told were used to cool the rooms by wetting them in the olden days.

The bathroom was decorated with beech wood and had a tub/shower enclosure.  The vanity was very spacious with plenty of room for toiletries.

For dinner, you don’t have to venture out of your room too far to discover the Azahar Restaurant.  It’s an authentic, yet modern, take on the classic Andalusian cuisine served by Chef Rafael Cantizano. Dining in a building from the 13th century, with its wooden decorations, woven needle grass, and stone,  creates a fun and uplifting atmosphere.

Or, if you’re in the mood for a lighter fare, try out the Azahar Rooftop, which serves tapas, sandwiches, salads and soft drinks for you to enjoy by the rooftop pool with friends and family.  Also, it’s the perfect place to watch the sun set over the horizon.

To complete the dining experience, the patios have tapas menus with the restaurant’s offerings, and there is also room service for you to enjoy if you don’t want to leave your beautiful rooms.

The massage and beauty treatment area is yours to indulge in, as is the indoor pool and solarium terrace where you can relax under the sun and enjoy refreshing, healthy smoothies from the Azahar Pool Bar.

    Luxurious but homey in the middle of Plaza Espana in Seville!

    • Carmen Edelson

      It’s not over the top like some of the other places I have stayed, but certainly one of the best locations in the city. Walking distance to many of the sites.
