WELCOME TO HOTEL ALFONSO XIII
Even before its birth the Hotel Alfonso XIII was destined for great things. Designed by architect José Espiau Munoz as a residence for
international dignitaries visiting the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, the Alfonso XIII’s ambition was simple: to become the grandest hotel in Europe. Twelve years of building work - and an investment of four million pesetas, or 10% of the Exhibition’s total budget - were required to
achieve the Alfonso’s peerless degree of luxury and magnificence. Characterized by its elaborate decoration in the Andalusian.
Regionalist style fashionable in the early years of the 20th century, the hotel was finally opened on 28th April 1928 - in good time for the
Expo - by its namesake, Spanish king Alfonso XIII. The hotel is situated on land that once belonged to the San Telmo Palace and became public property after the Duchess of Montpensier donated the palace and its gardens to the city. The Alfonso XIII quickly became one of Seville’s best-loved buildings and an integral part of the city’s social life.
