Name: Sacristía de Santa Ana Hotel Boutique
For long sunny evenings feasting on tapas at a pavement café and for days spent soaking up historic sites and exploring winding medieval lanes, the luxury traveller need look no further than Seville, the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region. Stay in the immaculately restored historic Sacristía de Santa Ana Boutique Hotel near the Cathedral in the heart of Seville.
The Sacristia de Santa Ana Boutique Hotel lies right in the heart of Seville’s old town; the trendy Alameda district. The hotel is near to the gothic Cathedral with its iconic bell tower and to Plaza de la Alameda Square and the Museum of Fine Arts. The main city centre is a 5 minute walk away and you are well connected by car and bus too.
Style & Character
The hotel itself is housed in a former 18th-century vestry built on the site of a Roman temple. It has been lovingly transformed into a hotel with a generous nod to the historic with frescoed ceilings, Roman statues and oak beams. The rooms are chic and elegant with gorgeous features such as antique furnishings, arty bedsteads, beamed ceilings, wooden shutters and painted or carved headboards.
Service & Facilities
The red-tiled central courtyard is perhaps the star attraction here; a beautiful spot to relax in the shade with the trickling fountain beside you. The front desk is staffed 24/7 and the service is excellent; be sure to pick their brains for local tips, they’ll be more than happy to oblige and you’ll find out things you never would have otherwise! There is also a small salon where the hotel provides very welcome complimentary tea and coffee throughout the day and where you can relax and use their computer, read the papers or just enjoy your warm beverage and recharge your batteries.
There are just 23 air-conditioned ensuite rooms spread over 4 floors in this intimate boutique hotel. Choose from 10 Standard Rooms, 5 Courtyard Rooms, 7 Superior Rooms and 1 Junior Suite. The Superior Rooms are quite suitable for discerning travellers but, although perhaps a cliché, the Junior Suite is THE room to stay in. For only a small increase in room rate, you stay in a stunningly ornately decorated room with a separate seating area, huge windows overlooking the Alameda and a real sense of character.
Food & Drink
A continental breakfast buffet is provided to welcome the day. The spread includes traditional Andalucian toast with olive oil, jamon and tomato, fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt and pastries as well as a choice of coffees. For your other nourishment, you are exceptionally well placed; the hotel overlooks La Alameda de Hercules Plaza, which is buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants and is the place to go in Seville for a night out.
