Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza, Seville, Spain

Cool, contemporary wonderland with gorgeous courtyards and rooftop pool in the heart of Seville's old town

A sublime city, a perfect hotel. You’re in the old town with a palace on one side of a cobbled square and a whitewashed church on another.

Step inside and crisp, contemporary interiors seduce immediately. Impeccable rooms, airy sitting rooms and a rooftop swimming pool all elate, but it’s the three courtyards that take the biscuit.

Old ceramic pots and mill stones are scattered about, colour spills from flowerbeds, stone pillars flank the sides and steps lead up to cloistered walkways that wrap around above. A great place to eat at any time.

Inside, the style is warmly chic: smart, but you feel at home. In the dining room, a wall of glass looks onto a tiny courtyard where two giant banana trees take to the skies.

Sitting rooms flood with light and are adorned with modern art, leather sofas, perhaps the odd occupied Victorian birdcage. You sleep on starched linen in airy rooms, the best of which have French windows that open onto the square. Faultless.

Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza in Seville is a design hotel with 48 rooms, with doubles costing from €165 on a room only basis.
