Recently taken over by the Fontecruz boutique hotel chain, Los Seises is beginning to rediscover its charm after years languishing under its previous owner, Husa hotels. The hotel is housed in a restored 16th-century archbishop's palace, but you wouldn't realize this on first arrival—the lobby and bars have a slightly Art Deco vibe, with tall windows in dark metal frames. The well-proportioned bedrooms have been revamped with deep purple curtains and cushions, Baroque-style chairs, mirrors, and standing lamps with modern silver flourishes. Bathrooms feature wet room-style showers and café-au-lait hues. For the romantics, room four is split level and housed in the building's old sacristy with a high vaulted ceiling. Rooms two and three have their own internal patios, though they aren't particularly private as they have large windows that look onto the corridor. There are a couple of more roomy junior suites and two sets of rooms that have their own corridor—ideal for families. The hotel's location, just moments from the cathedral, makes it an ideal location for sightseeing, but the rooftop pool and solarium—with its expansive views across the city's skyline—mean you may be tempted to give the sightseeing a miss for an afternoon lazing in the sun. Unexpected touches include Roman foundations in the atrium and an ancient olive tree from Jerusalem in the cool courtyard garden. Corridors and lifts looked like they needed new carpet and a lick of paint when I stayed, and it still felt like there was more to be done. I wasn't able to sample food in the restaurant either, though the scrambled eggs for breakfast were fine. You could see the potential—a little more love and affection and this place could be quite special.
