Joining two city palaces around a classic Andalucían patio, this three-story boutique hotel is just far enough away from the cathedral to avoid the crowds yet close to almost everything you might want to see. Public areas are quite grand, with lots of pale marble and handsome antique-styled furniture. Guest rooms are cozier, with heavy draperies and marble floors. This hotel is very popular with Spanish families, who book clusters of small rooms at the end of a hallway. Views from the rooftop terrace include, of course, La Giralda.
