15 Best Hotels In Seville Right Now

It’s no wonder that searches for the best hotels in Seville have soared; the capital of Andalucia, Spain, thrums with culture, history and excitement. Located on the Guadalquivir river, the city is known for its many historical buildings, beautiful Mudéjar architecture, flavour-rich food and, of course, traditional Spanish flamenco.

Wander the winding streets lined with orange trees, marvel at Moorish monuments and tuck into tapas in one of Seville’s many lively plazas. But with so many accommodation options on Booking. com alone, where do you even begin?

Here’s everything you need to know about when to visit Seville and where to stay, according to one travel-obsessed GLAMOUR editor…

What is the best area to stay in Seville?

There’s no single ‘best’ area to stay in Seville, particularly as the city’s main attractions are almost all located in the city centre and are close together. Barrio Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter, is where you’ll find a majority of boutique hotels and restored palatial mansions as well budget accommodation. Santa Cruz is also a brilliant base for sightseeing as its labyrinthine streets are centred about Seville Cathedral, with plenty of restaurants, galleries, museums and bars dotted around.

What is the best time of year to visit Seville?

If you’re looking for a summer holiday, July and August are actually low season in Seville because its summers are some of the hottest in Europe, with temperatures exceeding 35ºC and often hitting 40ºC. Prices are cheaper, but it’ll likely be too hot to explore the sights during the day – be sure to book a hotel with a pool to cool off during these months.

Shoulder season is November, February and March, when temperatures are mild but cold at night, and rain is likely. This time of year is best if you want to avoid the crowds and humidity.

But the best time of year to visit Seville is April, May, June, September and October. Temperatures hover in the mid-20s and can reach over 30ºC in June, when there is the least rain for this time of year. This is when the city is best for sightseeing and outdoor activities, and April often sees the famous Seville Fair (Feria de Abril) and Semana Santa (Holy Week). Expect prices to reflect high season travel.
