Eat & Drink
Stripey banquettes, glass topped tables and modern artworks set the tone in Corral del Rey's smart ground floor restaurant. A distinctly modern Spanish menu mixes specialities of the region (confit of suckling pig and local beef tournedos) with more eclectic dishes such as wontons of duck confit with spicy tomato and chilli jam, red mullet with celeriac sabayon, crispy seaweed and vine tomatoes. Caramelised banana with passion fruit and maple syrup should round things off nicely.
Continental and buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am. Be sure to take it on the roof in warm weather.
Available all day.
See & Do
Don't miss Seville's Gothic glories: the spired and towered cathedral (just five minutes walk away) is home to the tomb of Christopher Columbus and priceless Goyas. Then there is the Alcazar palace, home to royal families since the ninth century, and the Real Fabrica de Tabacos – famous as the setting for Bizet's opera Carmen.
A walk through the winding alleys of Seville's old Jewish quarter – Barrio Santa Cruz – is unmissable, while leafy Maria Luisa park makes a nice spot for a late afternoon wander. Do make time for a foray into the Museo de Bellas Artes – a fabulous art collection in a former convent. There's also a bullfighting museum next to the bull ring.
You can book an in-hotel massage via reception.
Seville's Easter week – Semana Santa – is the biggest event in the calendar with parades, costumes and a huge fair.
Seville's bullfighting season kicks off prior to the Feria de Abril (held two weeks after Easter), when tented stands line the streets and the city is a riot of costume, horses and dancers.
Don't miss the Feria del Caballo in nearby Jerez for a terrific day of horses, sherry and flamenco.
