Right slap bang in the "Barrio Santa Cruz" (THE area to stay in if you are looking for real history) is the most fascinating and characterful hotel I have found on my travels. As it's name suggests, it is made up from a number of linked houses in the old Jewish quarter. All narrow passageways, alcoves and interior gardens. To find out more check out:- www.lascasas-de-la-juderia.hotel-rn.com/. There are nearby church bells rung daily but they are not intrusive and didn't interfere with my sleep.
Our room was suitably styled with comfortable old fashioned furniture but everything you would need is provided. There is also a roof-top pool where you can cool off after a long day sightseeing. There is so much to see in this area that we will probably visit Sevilla again and when we do, we will definitely stay here. A very nice change to get away from all the glass and chrome usually found in these days of modern design. Don't forget to take full advantage of the brilliant Tapas available in all the local bars and restaurants. Two right opposite the hotel door, and a 10 minute stroll away one particularly well worth visiting is Vinela http://www.vinelasevilla.com/. It's in Plaza Dona Elvira near the cathedral. Lots of choice, great food, sensible prices and friendly helpful staff.
