C/ San Fernando 2, 41004
Conceived to be the most luxurious hotel in Europe when it was commissioned in 1928, the Alfonso XIII still remains one of Spain's most prestigious properties and reflects the grace of Andalucia's Arab heritage. In the centre of the city of Carmen on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, set between the 12th Century Alcazar Palace and the 15th Century Cathedral, the hotel public areas surround a courtyard adorned by mosaic tiled arcades and fountains. Marble pillars and staircases, carved ceilings, antiques, tapestries and lush gardens together form an ensemble of traditional enchantment and luxury. The loving restoration work has returned the hotel to its former glory. The 147 rooms including 19 suites are individually designed and tastefully furnished for extraordinary comfort in Castillian, Moorish and Baroque styles. All have air-conditioning, TV and mini-bar. Gastronomy is a pillar of the hotel's prestige and the kitchen at the Alfonso XIII is considered to be among the finest in Seville. One of the many delights is its fine restaurant, San Fernando. The restaurant offers international cuisine as well as authentic Andalusian dishes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients .
