Beautiful hotel and incredibly warm staff. We only stayed one night, but felt very welcome after a long day of travel. They even provided our pup with a great care package. Beds were comfy, property gorgeous and great artwork throughout (like staying in a gallery) The bartender (from Massachusetts) was delightful and helpful. 110% would stay again. Thank you!

Gorgeous setting for a last day drink and snack. Sat at the terrace for drinks which was lovely and excellent service. Had a nosy inside to discover all the gorgeous details and a fab smelling Christmas tree!

Fantastic! Great views from the terraza and really is a great place to just absorb the city. Food is really good, the boneless chicken wings are a favourite (although this time a little salty). Drinks are well made and good measures. My only criticism is the glacial service. Although lovely and accommodating it is just too slow. Will definitely revisit and if things move a little quicker and the prices haven't gone up (it is very dear) I will give 5 stars.

No doubt this place is the best in Seville. Wonderful hotel with history. Located in the best part of the city with a walking distance to everything you need to see. Rooms are amazing. Real royalty feeling. The lounge and the bar is a really good spot to spend your evening in town

Beautiful, palatial hotel in the heart of Seville. Staff is always courteous. Restaurant is top-notch. Your room will make you feel like royalty. Walking distance to myriad historical landmarks and the river as well. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

Went there for a quick drink. The setting is beautiful, the terrasse very impressive. The hotel is very well air conditioned which in the summer months is greatly appreciated !! Drinks are reasonably priced for a five star hotel. Service is good but not overwhelmingly nice - just cordial.

Great place to stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. You can't help but feel like a king/queen when you're staying there. We were there for our anniversary trip so they made it extra special by providing us with a small gift, flowers and rose petals on the bed. It was super sweet and unexpected because they had already given us wine and chocolate when we arrived. Their breakfast menu is great and has a lot of variety as well. Totally recommend staying here!

Beautiful hotel open to the public. Great food and definitely worth the extra cost. Because of its rich history its worth wondering around and looking at the architecture, the art and the jewelry displayed in this landmark.

I and my husband went for a weekend and stayed at this hotel. I must say the historical architecture is overwhelmingly beautiful, yet the hotel service is beyond disappointment. First, none of the personnel understands English for real. They would understand something completely different. Example: we wanted to book something for 4pm, but they sent the confirmation to our room at 5:30pm! Really silly and incompetent staff. At the pool, no matter how much you stress on getting cold beers, you will still get them warm. Last but not least, the room was spacious and quite nice, bathroom as well yet at times, there was an unbearable smell coming from the toilette pipes. The food in the fine dining restaurant San Francis is mediocre. Burrata was utterly acidic and the paella a bit too fried and no real taste. And to get a cocktail on the terrace bar it takes 30min... This should be a museum, not a hotel. With all due respect.

Stunning building, built to host the great and the good in the 1920s. Fabulous location, very expensive as you would expect. Definitely worth a look inside though.

This hotel is like a 1920s Hollywood set for a film about Seville. The hotel has been meticulously restored and is now better than ever. Bedrooms are very comfortable and the tile work in the bathrooms is amazing. Best cocktail bar in Seville.

Arrived at this hotel during a taxi strike so the journey on was about 45 minutes longer than expected. The men at the door rushed towards us all apologetic (of course it wasn't their fault) and when greeted by reception staff the drama of the last hour slipped away. Concierge also greeted us and really made us feel at home. The room (superior) was large and very comfortable - and the bed lush. I had informed the hotel by email that it was my wife's birthday - and upon returning to our room late that night there was a small birthday cake on the bed with best wishes and a chilled bottle of sparkling wine. Really thoughtful. Of course the hotel is centrally located and offers a variety of bars and eateries. Truly a delightful experience

El Hotel Alfonso XIII, en la Avenida de la Constitucion, forma parte de la historia de Sevilla, si bien sus precios son elevados sus servicios estan a la altura, fui de visita como diseñadora de interiores, todo esta cuidado al maximo detalle. Accedimos a una suit que costaba 1.500 euros en temporada baja, lo mejor de esta estancia el baño, el mobiliario de las otras zonas son demasiado clásicos para mi gusto, pero no rechazaria pasar un par de dias en ella, con esa cama king size. El torreon que se puede alquilar para pedidas de manos es muy especial, sin duda este servicio creo que si merece la pena. El bar/ cocteleria es de acceso libre, de estilo ART DECO reformado en 2012, los precios son elevados pero si te gusta disfrutar de un buen cafe por 4.50€ puedes tomar un latte machiatto en un lugar bastante exclusivo con música en directo. Todo el personal que nos atendió fue muy amable.

Fantastic venue but our group was insulted by the bar tenders multiples times over the weekend (in the evening to night time). We had multiple rooms for a wedding right in the Alfonso. Very unfortunate given the time and money we spent here.

Visited the hotel late in the evening for a drink on the tarrace. The hotel is amazing, both inside and outside. The drinks are not cheap for Sevilla standards but it was well worth it. Will definitely return when visiting the city again.

This is an AMAZING hotel. Great location and very attentive staff. The only thing I wasn't overly impressed with was the fact you can still smoke by the pool. I was travelling with an infant who loved to play in the water however on occasions would have someone smoking directly next to him.

The concierge service was excellent at guiding us through all of the places to visit, and made great dinner recommendations and reservations for us. We had a total blast during our 4 days in Séville thanks in great part to the hotel.

Overall poor experience. Hotel has nice bones of a pretty old building, but the room was dirty and, more importantly, the service and attitude of staff is very mixed. Some nice people, but more than one or two with an unacceptably negative unhelpful attitude. The hotel also attempted not to honor its own cancellation policy by refusing to "accept" a cancellation. What does that even mean? Also, through a convoluted and dishonest charade the hotel attempted to dishonor the food and beverage credit offered through the amex fine hotels program. Definitely not worth the money and do not recommend. Will not return.

This hotel is just spectacular. My friend got married here. The food was sensational. Their drinks selection is bigger than any I've ever seen. The pink gin was sublime. We had lunch and bubbles in the room too. The tiling was fabulous. The roast veg pesto sandwich was the best sandwich I've ever tasted.

Tough to decide between 4 and 5. Overall excellent and will return but front desk is slower and less effective than I would expect for a hotel of this quality and concierge was erratically staffed. Rooms, breakfast and the pool area all amazing. Good gym too.

Went to the American bar for a cocktail and to admire the architecture. It is beautiful and the cocktails are good. Service not as good as I would expect for an establishment like this (difficult to get the attention of a waiter to bring the bill and then to pay). The fact that everything is branded "The Luxury Question" rather than "Hotel Alfonso XIII" is odd. It is a constant reminder you're in part of a global chain rather than a unique hotel.

Glamorous and beautifully restored, this elegant hotel is a must-see. Beautiful public areas, with its old-world architecture and moorish style furnings. The Bar Americano inside the hotel is posh art-deco style and has some good cocktails. Worth the visit for the design alone!

Stayed here once before, it's over-priced, massively over-priced, much nicer, better, hotels in the centre at half (literally) the price. This time we went for lunch in the central courtyard, the service was awful, so many staff, and yet the wait was shocking, I think only two people were doing anything. It took half an hour just for the drinks to arrive. We'd been sat for an hour by the time food arrived. The young English girl on front desk worked hard and apologised profusely, and a young Spanish (?) chap did his best, everyone else just stood around out of sight. Lunch was very expensive, although in grand surroundings, it took way, way, too long! Such a shame, we wanted to give it another go, but won't a third time!

Worthless the price. They charged my credit card a huge amount of money as a deposit. A five star hotel but with no SPA or health club! Noise can be easily heard in the room and couldn't sleep or take a nap. Location is great.
