Step back in time and experience an authentic taste of old Seville at this wonderfully quirky hotel in the historic Jewish Quarter.
Hotel Casas de la Judería is actually a collection of 27 traditional houses clustered in the atmospheric Santa Cruz district, linked together by a labyrinth of underground tunnels, plant-filled patios and passageways. Don’t be surprised if you get lost once or twice trying to find your way back to your room!
Accommodation is charming and characterful, and facilities include a gorgeous rooftop pool and a unique Roman-themed spa. If you prefer the predictability of a large chain hotel then this might not be right for you, but if you love unusual and eccentric properties then this is a fantastic choice.
Includes return economy flights. Two people sharing a room for 3 nights, departing in February 2018. Contact us for your specific requirements. From price for guidance only, all subject to availability.

The hotel is situated in the Judería, Seville’s old Jewish quarter, next to the church of Santa María la Blanca, which was originally a synagogue. This neighbourhood is full of restaurants and tapas bars, and you’re close to the main ring road that surrounds the historic centre.
It’s a 10-minute walk to the UNESCO-listed Alcázar, a magnificent royal palace that is renowned for its stunning Moorish-influenced architecture. Other historic sights nearby include the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, Santa María de la Sede, which was built on the ruins of an Almohad mosque and contains the tomb of Christopher Columbus.
The Metropol Parasol is a more modern addition, a striking wooden walkway that opened in 2011 over a previously neglected part of the city, about 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The most popular area for LGBT nightlife in Seville is the Alameda de Hércules, a leafy promenade where you’ll find lots of gay-friendly bars and restaurants, with revellers spilling out into the streets on a warm summer’s evening.
The hotel’s unique layout means that the 134 rooms and suites are quite spread out, and it will take you a little while to figure out the passageways and tunnels that link the houses together - but that’s all part of the fun!
Room sizes and shapes inevitably vary from building to building, and the décor draws on the history and tradition of the city. All accommodation includes a TV, mini bar and safe, and most categories also have a hydromassage tub. Some rooms also have a private courtyard, terrace or balcony, and dedicated single occupancy rooms are available. Free WiFi is available in the public areas but the hotel is still grappling with the challenge of extending this to the rooms, which is not an easy task thanks to the historic nature of the buildings.
The wonderful Spa Las Termas de Hispalis is inspired by Ancient Rome, decorated with marble tiles depicting Roman gods and sea creatures, and includes a sauna, thermal circuit and Turkish bath. The rooftop pool has fantastic views of the cathedral’s famous Giralda bell tower, with a Jacuzzi area and bar service during summer. There is also a piano bar indoors, and the breakfast room is on the ground floor.

The Santa Cruz neighbourhood was Seville’s Jewish quarter, the judería, until the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. The narrow alleys and passageways that you see in both the hotel and the surrounding area were designed to provide protection from the fierce summer sun, and one of the joys of Seville is simply wandering the streets of Santa Cruz and stumbling upon shady squares, tiny tapas joints and beautiful old palaces and churches. There are also plenty of places where you can catch a flamenco show, including the excellent Museo del Baile Flamenco (Museum of Flamenco Dancing), housed in an elegant 18th century townhouse.
How to get here...
You can fly direct from various UK airports to Barcelona, with carriers including British Airways and easyJet. Flight time is approximately 2½ hours.
