An expert guide to the best cheap hotels in Seville, including the top places to stay for comfortable rooms, quirky interiors, cool courtyards and even rooftop bars and restaurants, in Santa Cruz Old Town, Arenal and Alameda districts, and near to the Cathedral, La Giralda, Alcázar Palace and more. Hotel AlminarSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating This great-value, small hotel is hidden away on a winding alley in the warren of the Santa Cruz Old Town, only yards away from the Cathedral and La Giralda. It’s simple but smart and contemporary, and staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. There’s a tasteful mix of original features and contemporary furnishings throughout. The small downstairs lobby is a mix of vividly patterned, traditional, Moorish-style, Andalucían wall tiles and stylish white leather seating, while the rooms have high, wooden-beamed ceilings. Tasteful dark-wood furniture, polished wooden floors and simple ivory-toned curtains and bedding also give a much classier feel to rooms than you’d expect for the price. Read expert review From £39per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Seville Alcoba del Rey de SevillaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A fabulous choice if you want to stay somewhere stylish and reasonably central without breaking the bank. Each of the 15 individually styled rooms, housed in a converted Mudejar palace, conjure up the spirit of al Andaluz – Seville’s Moorish history – with Arabian arches and hand-carved Moroccan furniture. Moroccan lanterns cast gentle shadows on walls of deep terracotta, while Kilim rugs and floor candles decorate corridors. Rooms feature large, comfortable beds draped in richly hued silks (some with wooden canopies in breezy white muslin); antique cedar-wood furniture; beamed ceilings and filigreed Moorish plasterwork alcoves. Read expert review From £63per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Andalucia Hotel AlcántaraSeville, Andalucia, Spain 7Telegraph expert rating A simple but excellent-value, family-run, budget choice in the heart of Seville’s Old Town, just moments away from La Giralda and the main sights. This makes a great, central base with some of the city’s best tapas bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Book well in advance as rooms go quickly. Vast wooden doors lead you into an entrance with a lofty, Moorish-style arch, decorative Andalucían tiles and parlour palms before you arrive in the hotel foyer. The main building is modern and plain with neutral walls and quite basic, modern furnishings. The rooms are all light with white walls and simple, yellow, grey and white décor, looking out to an internal modern courtyard. Read expert review From £31per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The 50 greatest hotels in Spain Adriano HotelSeville, Andalucia, Spain 7Telegraph expert rating An excellent-value hotel centrally located in Seville’s Arenal district near the bullring, with friendly staff and much more ornate, grandiose décor than you’d expect for the price. There’s also a roof terrace and café and some of the city’s best tapas bars on your doorstep. Inlaid marble floors, crystal chandelier, red damask and dark-wood antiques give a theatrical air. Ornately carved wood, Japanese-style wooden screens likewise complete the drama on a mezzanine lounge. Some rooms feature full-blown Madame de Pompadour’s boudoir-style rococo with ornate, heavily-gilded headboards, cerise velvet chesterfield poufs, gilt-framed mirrors and gold and black damask fabric. Read expert review From £60per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best places to visit in Spain and where to stay Boutique Hotel HolosSeville, Andalucia, Spain 7Telegraph expert rating Design fans will love this sleekly architectured boutique hotel in the suburbs of Seville. Everything from the brushed steel walls and blonde-wood sliding panels in reception to the lime green and orange loo rolls in the bathrooms feel like something out of a magazine. There’s no pool but there is a small roof terrace and a pretty, gravelled garden with Daniel Libeskind-style jagged steel fencing and steel tables and chairs amidst overhanging lemon trees and lilac bushes. The minimalist, design feel pervades throughout rooms, with cedar-toned wood panels, white walls, designer lamps and chairs. Read expert review From £58per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The most romantic hotels in Seville Casa de ColónSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A cleverly balanced blend of exposed brick walls with zingy colours, ethnic prints and repurposed furniture make this family-owned 18th-century conversion, halfway between the cathedral and Plaza San Francisco, a stylish city-centre steal. Unusual period features – striking cobalt-blue glass, neo-mudejar scalloped windows, and cast-iron pillars in the patio, with the maker’s name stamped on them – lend it plenty of character. The interiors are nicely complemented by contemporary touches, such as brightly-coloured woven Indian stools and batik cushions; the overall feel is historic but with a modern vibe. Read expert review From £52per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • Where to stay in Seville - hotels by district Casual Sevilla Don Juan TenorioSeville, Andalucia, Spain 7Telegraph expert rating This budget-conscious hotel themed around the literary lothario Don Juan Tenorio sits on a pretty Santa Cruz plaza and has simple rooms. The style is a mix of traditional (marble floors; orange pine doors) and modern-quirky on a tight budget – the fun ground-floor reception desk is a pile of imitation travel trunks. Silhouette figures of booted caballeros brandishing swords in blue, green and yellow brighten the walls of guest rooms and public areas, lively references to the novel’s characters (each room is named after one), and blown-up photos of rustic, textural wood, stone, rope fibres and grain, plus agricultural implements, give a rustic edge. Read expert review From £63per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Malaga Hotel Sacristía de Santa AnaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A boutique hotel in a converted 18th-century mansion, delightfully relaxed considering Seville's hottest restaurant and bar scene is on its doorstep. Quirky furniture, period details and great value make this family-owned spot the top choice in the Alameda district. The central Andalusian patio sets the mood – hand-laid oxblood ceramic floor with bijou Arabic-style marble fountain in the centre, and replica Roman amphorae on the wall, as well as original columns found in the basement. In keeping with the classical statues nearby, each room is named after a mythological figure. The décor is traditional yet stylish - rooms have soft pink, olive or grey walls with mostly refurbished antique furniture. Read expert review From £54per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Granada Hotel AmadeusSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A wonderfully idiosyncratic, family-run hotel in an 18th-century townhouse just a short walk away from the Cathedral and Alcázar Palace. This amazingly good-value, classy hotel has a musical theme, with harps, pianos and saxophones dotted around the hotel. It also hosts classical concerts. If you had an opera-singing Spanish aunt and went to stay in her rather grand family-home, it might look a little like this. The public areas are a Victorian aesthete’s paradise, with 19th-century family antiques rubbing shoulders with pianos, comfy sofas, Moorish tiled walls and glass Moroccan lanterns. The rooms, meanwhile, feel bright and contemporary Read expert review From £54per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Spain Casa RomanaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating This classically elegant hotel dotted with clever repro Roman sculptures is a real find. It's located in a handy position between the hip Alameda district with its boho bar-gallery-shops, and the main Zara-tastic central shopping area. The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant has fabulous city views. Twenty-six rooms are arranged around two patios - the hotel is made up of adjoining 18th-century casa-palacios (mansions). The smaller, rear patio is open-air and plant-filled, with antique tiles and a fountain, while the larger main one is covered but still feels light, thanks to the grand dimensions of the front three-storey mansion with its marble floors. There's also a decent-sized unheated rectangular hot tub. Read expert review From £47per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com

Unusual period features – striking cobalt-blue glass, neo-mudejar scalloped windows, and cast-iron pillars in the patio, with the maker’s name stamped on them – lend it plenty of character. The interiors are nicely complemented by contemporary touches, such as brightly-coloured woven Indian stools and batik cushions; the overall feel is historic but with a modern vibe.

The style is a mix of traditional (marble floors; orange pine doors) and modern-quirky on a tight budget – the fun ground-floor reception desk is a pile of imitation travel trunks. Silhouette figures of booted caballeros brandishing swords in blue, green and yellow brighten the walls of guest rooms and public areas, lively references to the novel’s characters (each room is named after one), and blown-up photos of rustic, textural wood, stone, rope fibres and grain, plus agricultural implements, give a rustic edge.

Quirky furniture, period details and great value make this family-owned spot the top choice in the Alameda district. The central Andalusian patio sets the mood – hand-laid oxblood ceramic floor with bijou Arabic-style marble fountain in the centre, and replica Roman amphorae on the wall, as well as original columns found in the basement. In keeping with the classical statues nearby, each room is named after a mythological figure.

This amazingly good-value, classy hotel has a musical theme, with harps, pianos and saxophones dotted around the hotel. It also hosts classical concerts. If you had an opera-singing Spanish aunt and went to stay in her rather grand family-home, it might look a little like this. The public areas are a Victorian aesthete’s paradise, with 19th-century family antiques rubbing shoulders with pianos, comfy sofas, Moorish tiled walls and glass Moroccan lanterns.

The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant has fabulous city views. Twenty-six rooms are arranged around two patios - the hotel is made up of adjoining 18th-century casa-palacios (mansions). The smaller, rear patio is open-air and plant-filled, with antique tiles and a fountain, while the larger main one is covered but still feels light, thanks to the grand dimensions of the front three-storey mansion with its marble floors.

Everything from the brushed steel walls and blonde-wood sliding panels in reception to the lime green and orange loo rolls in the bathrooms feel like something out of a magazine. There’s no pool but there is a small roof terrace and a pretty, gravelled garden with Daniel Libeskind-style jagged steel fencing and steel tables and chairs amidst overhanging lemon trees and lilac bushes.

Unusual period features – striking cobalt-blue glass, neo-mudejar scalloped windows, and cast-iron pillars in the patio, with the maker’s name stamped on them – lend it plenty of character. The interiors are nicely complemented by contemporary touches, such as brightly-coloured woven Indian stools and batik cushions; the overall feel is historic but with a modern vibe.

The style is a mix of traditional (marble floors; orange pine doors) and modern-quirky on a tight budget – the fun ground-floor reception desk is a pile of imitation travel trunks. Silhouette figures of booted caballeros brandishing swords in blue, green and yellow brighten the walls of guest rooms and public areas, lively references to the novel’s characters (each room is named after one), and blown-up photos of rustic, textural wood, stone, rope fibres and grain, plus agricultural implements, give a rustic edge.

Quirky furniture, period details and great value make this family-owned spot the top choice in the Alameda district. The central Andalusian patio sets the mood – hand-laid oxblood ceramic floor with bijou Arabic-style marble fountain in the centre, and replica Roman amphorae on the wall, as well as original columns found in the basement. In keeping with the classical statues nearby, each room is named after a mythological figure. The décor is traditional yet stylish - rooms have soft pink, olive or grey walls with mostly refurbished antique furniture.

This amazingly good-value, classy hotel has a musical theme, with harps, pianos and saxophones dotted around the hotel. It also hosts classical concerts. If you had an opera-singing Spanish aunt and went to stay in her rather grand family-home, it might look a little like this. The public areas are a Victorian aesthete’s paradise, with 19th-century family antiques rubbing shoulders with pianos, comfy sofas, Moorish tiled walls and glass Moroccan lanterns.

It's located in a handy position between the hip Alameda district with its boho bar-gallery-shops, and the main Zara-tastic central shopping area. The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant has fabulous city views. Twenty-six rooms are arranged around two patios - the hotel is made up of adjoining 18th-century casa-palacios (mansions). The smaller, rear patio is open-air and plant-filled, with antique tiles and a fountain, while the larger main one is covered but still feels light, thanks to the grand dimensions of the front three-storey mansion with its marble floors.

Top 10: the best budget hotels in Seville
An expert guide to the best cheap hotels in Seville, including the top places to stay for comfortable rooms, quirky interiors, cool courtyards and even rooftop bars and restaurants, in Santa Cruz Old Town, Arenal and Alameda districts, and near to the Cathedral, La Giralda, Alcázar Palace and more. Hotel AlminarSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating This great-value, small hotel is hidden away on a winding alley in the warren of the Santa Cruz Old Town, only yards away from the Cathedral and La Giralda. It’s simple but smart and contemporary, and staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. There’s a tasteful mix of original features and contemporary furnishings throughout. The small downstairs lobby is a mix of vividly patterned, traditional, Moorish-style, Andalucían wall tiles and stylish white leather seating, while the rooms have high, wooden-beamed ceilings. Tasteful dark-wood furniture, polished wooden floors and simple ivory-toned curtains and bedding also give a much classier feel to rooms than you’d expect for the price. Read expert review From £39per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Seville Alcoba del Rey de SevillaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A fabulous choice if you want to stay somewhere stylish and reasonably central without breaking the bank. Each of the 15 individually styled rooms, housed in a converted Mudejar palace, conjure up the spirit of al Andaluz – Seville’s Moorish history – with Arabian arches and hand-carved Moroccan furniture. Moroccan lanterns cast gentle shadows on walls of deep terracotta, while Kilim rugs and floor candles decorate corridors. Rooms feature large, comfortable beds draped in richly hued silks (some with wooden canopies in breezy white muslin); antique cedar-wood furniture; beamed ceilings and filigreed Moorish plasterwork alcoves.

Vast wooden doors lead you into an entrance with a lofty, Moorish-style arch, decorative Andalucían tiles and parlour palms before you arrive in the hotel foyer. The main building is modern and plain with neutral walls and quite basic, modern furnishings. The rooms are all light with white walls and simple, yellow, grey and white décor, looking out to an internal modern courtyard.

The interiors are nicely complemented by contemporary touches, such as brightly-coloured woven Indian stools and batik cushions; the overall feel is historic but with a modern vibe.

The style is a mix of traditional (marble floors; orange pine doors) and modern-quirky on a tight budget – the fun ground-floor reception desk is a pile of imitation travel trunks. Silhouette figures of booted caballeros brandishing swords in blue, green and yellow brighten the walls of guest rooms and public areas, lively references to the novel’s characters (each room is named after one), and blown-up photos of rustic, textural wood, stone, rope fibres and grain, plus agricultural implements, give a rustic edge.

Quirky furniture, period details and great value make this family-owned spot the top choice in the Alameda district. The central Andalusian patio sets the mood – hand-laid oxblood ceramic floor with bijou Arabic-style marble fountain in the centre, and replica Roman amphorae on the wall, as well as original columns found in the basement. In keeping with the classical statues nearby, each room is named after a mythological figure. The décor is traditional yet stylish - rooms have soft pink, olive or grey walls with mostly refurbished antique furniture.

This amazingly good-value, classy hotel has a musical theme, with harps, pianos and saxophones dotted around the hotel. It also hosts classical concerts. If you had an opera-singing Spanish aunt and went to stay in her rather grand family-home, it might look a little like this. The public areas are a Victorian aesthete’s paradise, with 19th-century family antiques rubbing shoulders with pianos, comfy sofas, Moorish tiled walls and glass Moroccan lanterns.

It's located in a handy position between the hip Alameda district with its boho bar-gallery-shops, and the main Zara-tastic central shopping area. The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant has fabulous city views. Twenty-six rooms are arranged around two patios - the hotel is made up of adjoining 18th-century casa-palacios (mansions). The smaller, rear patio is open-air and plant-filled, with antique tiles and a fountain, while the larger main one is covered but still feels light, thanks to the grand dimensions of the front three-storey mansion with its marble floors. There's also a decent-sized unheated rectangular hot tub. Read expert review From £47per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com
Top 10: the best budget hotels in Seville
An expert guide to the best cheap hotels in Seville, including the top places to stay for comfortable rooms, quirky interiors, cool courtyards and even rooftop bars and restaurants, in Santa Cruz Old Town, Arenal and Alameda districts, and near to the Cathedral, La Giralda, Alcázar Palace and more. Hotel AlminarSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating This great-value, small hotel is hidden away on a winding alley in the warren of the Santa Cruz Old Town, only yards away from the Cathedral and La Giralda. It’s simple but smart and contemporary, and staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. There’s a tasteful mix of original features and contemporary furnishings throughout. The small downstairs lobby is a mix of vividly patterned, traditional, Moorish-style, Andalucían wall tiles and stylish white leather seating, while the rooms have high, wooden-beamed ceilings. Tasteful dark-wood furniture, polished wooden floors and simple ivory-toned curtains and bedding also give a much classier feel to rooms than you’d expect for the price. Read expert review From £39per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Seville Alcoba del Rey de SevillaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A fabulous choice if you want to stay somewhere stylish and reasonably central without breaking the bank. Each of the 15 individually styled rooms, housed in a converted Mudejar palace, conjure up the spirit of al Andaluz – Seville’s Moorish history – with Arabian arches and hand-carved Moroccan furniture. Moroccan lanterns cast gentle shadows on walls of deep terracotta, while Kilim rugs and floor candles decorate corridors. Rooms feature large, comfortable beds draped in richly hued silks (some with wooden canopies in breezy white muslin); antique cedar-wood furniture; beamed ceilings and filigreed Moorish plasterwork alcoves.

This makes a great, central base with some of the city’s best tapas bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Book well in advance as rooms go quickly. Vast wooden doors lead you into an entrance with a lofty, Moorish-style arch, decorative Andalucían tiles and parlour palms before you arrive in the hotel foyer. The main building is modern and plain with neutral walls and quite basic, modern furnishings. The rooms are all light with white walls and simple, yellow, grey and white décor, looking out to an internal modern courtyard.

There’s also a roof terrace and café and some of the city’s best tapas bars on your doorstep. Inlaid marble floors, crystal chandelier, red damask and dark-wood antiques give a theatrical air. Ornately carved wood, Japanese-style wooden screens likewise complete the drama on a mezzanine lounge. Some rooms feature full-blown Madame de Pompadour’s boudoir-style rococo with ornate, heavily-gilded headboards, cerise velvet chesterfield poufs, gilt-framed mirrors and gold and black damask fabric.

Everything from the brushed steel walls and blonde-wood sliding panels in reception to the lime green and orange loo rolls in the bathrooms feel like something out of a magazine. There’s no pool but there is a small roof terrace and a pretty, gravelled garden with Daniel Libeskind-style jagged steel fencing and steel tables and chairs amidst overhanging lemon trees and lilac bushes.

Quirky furniture, period details and great value make this family-owned spot the top choice in the Alameda district. The central Andalusian patio sets the mood – hand-laid oxblood ceramic floor with bijou Arabic-style marble fountain in the centre, and replica Roman amphorae on the wall, as well as original columns found in the basement. In keeping with the classical statues nearby, each room is named after a mythological figure. The décor is traditional yet stylish - rooms have soft pink, olive or grey walls with mostly refurbished antique furniture.

This amazingly good-value, classy hotel has a musical theme, with harps, pianos and saxophones dotted around the hotel. It also hosts classical concerts. If you had an opera-singing Spanish aunt and went to stay in her rather grand family-home, it might look a little like this. The public areas are a Victorian aesthete’s paradise, with 19th-century family antiques rubbing shoulders with pianos, comfy sofas, Moorish tiled walls and glass Moroccan lanterns.

It's located in a handy position between the hip Alameda district with its boho bar-gallery-shops, and the main Zara-tastic central shopping area. The buzzing rooftop bar and restaurant has fabulous city views. Twenty-six rooms are arranged around two patios - the hotel is made up of adjoining 18th-century casa-palacios (mansions). The smaller, rear patio is open-air and plant-filled, with antique tiles and a fountain, while the larger main one is covered but still feels light, thanks to the grand dimensions of the front three-storey mansion with its marble floors.

An expert guide to the best cheap hotels in Seville, including the top places to stay for comfortable rooms, quirky interiors, cool courtyards and even rooftop bars and restaurants, in Santa Cruz Old Town, Arenal and Alameda districts, and near to the Cathedral, La Giralda, Alcázar Palace and more. Hotel AlminarSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating This great-value, small hotel is hidden away on a winding alley in the warren of the Santa Cruz Old Town, only yards away from the Cathedral and La Giralda. It’s simple but smart and contemporary, and staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. There’s a tasteful mix of original features and contemporary furnishings throughout. The small downstairs lobby is a mix of vividly patterned, traditional, Moorish-style, Andalucían wall tiles and stylish white leather seating, while the rooms have high, wooden-beamed ceilings. Tasteful dark-wood furniture, polished wooden floors and simple ivory-toned curtains and bedding also give a much classier feel to rooms than you’d expect for the price. Read expert review From £39per night Check availability Rates provided by Booking.com • The best hotels in Seville Alcoba del Rey de SevillaSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating A fabulous choice if you want to stay somewhere stylish and reasonably central without breaking the bank. Each of the 15 individually styled rooms, housed in a converted Mudejar palace, conjure up the spirit of al Andaluz – Seville’s Moorish history – with Arabian arches and hand-carved Moroccan furniture. Moroccan lanterns cast gentle shadows on walls of deep terracotta, while Kilim rugs and floor candles decorate corridors. Rooms feature large, comfortable beds draped in richly hued silks (some with wooden canopies in breezy white muslin); antique cedar-wood furniture; beamed ceilings and filigreed Moorish plasterwork alcoves.

Vast wooden doors lead you into an entrance with a lofty, Moorish-style arch, decorative Andalucían tiles and parlour palms before you arrive in the hotel foyer. The main building is modern and plain with neutral walls and quite basic, modern furnishings. The rooms are all light with white walls and simple, yellow, grey and white décor, looking out to an internal modern courtyard.

There’s also a roof terrace and café and some of the city’s best tapas bars on your doorstep. Inlaid marble floors, crystal chandelier, red damask and dark-wood antiques give a theatrical air. Ornately carved wood, Japanese-style wooden screens likewise complete the drama on a mezzanine lounge.

Unusual period features – striking cobalt-blue glass, neo-mudejar scalloped windows, and cast-iron pillars in the patio, with the maker’s name stamped on them – lend it plenty of character.

It's not just period glamour – there are Moorish arches and ornate tilework, mottled marble pillars and parquet floors, but also highly contemporary styling throughout.

The hotel is built in the typical Sevillano style of rooms around an arcaded patio with a fountain. Unusually, this patio is open-air rather than roofed, and bursting with greenery; terracotta pots of frondy ferns and vibrant geraniums, and ivy hanging from the upper floors with tendrils trailing romantically over the balconies.

Farrow & Ball-style muted sandstones and greys are not shades you’d normally associate with the golden sunlight and warm-blooded drama of Andalusia, but then most Seville hotels are not run by Englishmen.

There’s a small roof terrace with sun loungers and a whirlpool tub – a brilliant spot to escape the Seville heat in the height of summer.

This restored 17th-century mansion hidden down a tiny alley in Santa Cruz offers service worthy of a five-star establishment, plus nightly live guitar performances, a superbly-stocked bar, and a large roof terrace with cathedral views. The hotel is built in the typical Sevillano style of rooms around an arcaded patio with a fountain. Unusually, this patio is open-air rather than roofed, and bursting with greenery; terracotta pots of frondy ferns and vibrant geraniums, and ivy hanging from the upper floors with tendrils trailing romantically over the balconies.

It’s a classy affair with fine art on the walls amid marble and Romanesque pillars. Farrow & Ball-style muted sandstones and greys are not shades you’d normally associate with the golden sunlight and warm-blooded drama of Andalusia, but then most Seville hotels are not run by Englishmen. The hotel was made over by interior designer Kuky Mora-Figueroa, with a mix of dark-wood antique desks, carved Moroccan mirrors, Scandinavian oak-panelled floors and beamed ceilings.

You won’t get a conveniently central location but you will get design credentials in spades and an elegant, lilac-filled gravel garden to escape the heat. Everything from the brushed steel walls and blonde-wood sliding panels in reception to the lime green and orange loo rolls in the bathrooms feel like something out of a magazine. There’s no pool but there is a small roof terrace and a pretty, gravelled garden with Daniel Libeskind-style jagged steel fencing and steel tables and chairs amidst overhanging lemon trees and lilac bushes.

As you enter the vast wooden doors, the gentle sound of a trickling water fountain belies the fact that you’re just yards away from La Giralda. You'll find a mix of Louis XIV-style gilt chandeliers, high wooden-beamed ceilings, parquet floors and contemporary, neutral-toned damasks and velvets. It's quietly grand and sophisticated without being loud or ostentatious. Details such as fresh tiger lilies and soothing Spanish guitar music make this feel every inch the classy boutique hotel.

It's not just period glamour – there are Moorish arches and ornate tilework, mottled marble pillars and parquet floors, but also highly contemporary styling throughout.

You'll find a mix of Louis XIV-style gilt chandeliers, high wooden-beamed ceilings, parquet floors and contemporary, neutral-toned damasks and velvets.

An expert guide to the top boutique hotels in Seville, including the best places to stay for quirky and eclectic design, cool rooftop pools and bars, sumptuous spas and more, in locations including the Alameda distric and Santa Cruz. Hotel Palacio De VillapanesSeville, Andalucia, Spain 8Telegraph expert rating Some hotels ooze class, and this grand, former 18th-century palacio feels every inch the Andalusian palace that it is. It's not just period glamour – there are Moorish arches and ornate tilework, mottled marble pillars and parquet floors, but also highly contemporary styling throughout. The basement breakfast room with its whitewashed, arched ceiling feels like something out of a space-age Sixties James Bond film, while the spa has a twinkling, starry-night-effect ceiling.

Each of the 15 individually designed rooms, named after a historical figure or poet and housed in a converted Mudejar palace, conjure up the spirit of al Andaluz – Seville’s Moorish history – with Arabian arches and hand-carved Moroccan furniture.

This restored 17th-century mansion hidden down a tiny alley in Santa Cruz offers service worthy of a five-star establishment, plus nightly live guitar performances, a superbly-stocked bar, and a large roof terrace with cathedral views. The hotel is built in the typical Sevillano style of rooms around an arcaded patio with a fountain. Unusually, this patio is open-air rather than roofed, and bursting with greenery; terracotta pots of frondy ferns and vibrant geraniums, and ivy hanging from the upper floors with tendrils trailing romantically over the balconies.

It’s a classy affair with fine art on the walls amid marble and Romanesque pillars. Farrow & Ball-style muted sandstones and greys are not shades you’d normally associate with the golden sunlight and warm-blooded drama of Andalusia, but then most Seville hotels are not run by Englishmen. The hotel was made over by interior designer Kuky Mora-Figueroa, with a mix of dark-wood antique desks, carved Moroccan mirrors, Scandinavian oak-panelled floors and beamed ceilings.

Four migrants are in a critical condition after being shot in Calais in what the French government dubbed “unprecedented” scenes of violence among those seeking to reach Britain. The brutal attack came days after Theresa May pledged an extra £44.5 million to beef up border security in Calais and President Emmanuel Macron promised there would be no return to the “jungle” – the notorious migrant camp razed in 2016. Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart slammed charities and activists who “manipulate” migrants. “They are people who live off this. Culturally, they are against the state, institutions. They help neither the migrants nor the population,” she said. Her comments came as the government promised to take over control of food distribution from local aid groups “within two weeks” and conduct the handouts outside the town. The four men, all Eritreans, were shot in the neck, chest, abdomen and spine at a food distribution point. A fifth gunshot victim was not facing life-threatening injuries. In all, some 22 people were hospitalised after three giant brawls across the city on Thursday between hundreds of Afghans and Eritreans camped out in squalid conditions in the hope of sneaking to the UK as stowaways in trucks. Two officers were injured in the clashes. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb (C) meets in Calais, northern France, following a large brawl between a hundred migrants which resulted in several injuries. Credit: PHILIPPE HUGUEN/AFP It was the worst violence in Calais since clashes on July 1, 2017 left 16 people wounded.

Four migrants critical after 'unprecedented' shooting in Calais as mayor lashes out at 'manipulative' charities
Four migrants are in a critical condition after being shot in Calais in what the French government dubbed “unprecedented” scenes of violence among those seeking to reach Britain. The brutal attack came days after Theresa May pledged an extra £44.5 million to beef up border security in Calais and President Emmanuel Macron promised there would be no return to the “jungle” – the notorious migrant camp razed in 2016. Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart slammed charities and activists who “manipulate” migrants. “They are people who live off this. Culturally, they are against the state, institutions. They help neither the migrants nor the population,” she said. Her comments came as the government promised to take over control of food distribution from local aid groups “within two weeks” and conduct the handouts outside the town. The four men, all Eritreans, were shot in the neck, chest, abdomen and spine at a food distribution point. A fifth gunshot victim was not facing life-threatening injuries. In all, some 22 people were hospitalised after three giant brawls across the city on Thursday between hundreds of Afghans and Eritreans camped out in squalid conditions in the hope of sneaking to the UK as stowaways in trucks. Two officers were injured in the clashes.
