Best Hostels and Budgets Hotels in Seville, Spain
1. The Boutike Hostel ~ Bright and Cozy
Trendy, centrally located and with the bonus of free gym use, Boutike Hostel is a newcomer on the scene that has made waves thanks to its American-Spanish team of owners, Kate and Joselu. The place is cozy, friendly and feels like a step above a hostel – there are no dorm rooms, so socializing takes places on their rooftop terrace and modern kitchen.
Kate is a design mastermind, so each en suite room is slightly different from the next, and special attention is paid to guest comfort. Joselu is a lifelong sevillano, and their trained staff can recommend tours, sites and day trips.

2. La Banda Rooftop Hostel ~ Modern Design and Cathedral Views
Dreamed up by two British brothers who are addicted to travel, music and close-knit friendships, La Banda – a colloquial Spanish word for band of friends – shows that hostels can be low-cost and still give a traveler what he or she needs. Expect modern design, big and comfy public areas and nightly dinners, served up on a killer rooftop terrace just down the street from the Cathedral.
While all of Seville’s hostels are able to recommend tapas bars or flamenco haunts, La Banda runs a great blog about Seville called Stripped Back Travel, so you can get the low-down prior to your trip.

3. Seville Kitsch Hostel ~ Women-Only Dorm Rooms
The life-sized picture of a weeping virgin caught my eye at this new hostel, nestled into the plaza behind the Real Alcázar. Housed around a central patio, eight rooms are painstakingly decorated in a funky, overly exaggerated way. Clients tout the chill rooftop terrace and the quiet rooms, as well as its proximity to major sites. Locals Mariló and Celia have combined their art backgrounds into a wonderfully kitschy and up-and-coming space for young travelers.
You can choose a women’s only dorm if you’re of the female persuasion.

Apart from the musical instruments scattered around the hotel that beg to be played, you can rent classical music CDs free of charge to play in your room, which includes top-of-the-line sound equipment. The décor is classic and comfortable – much like a country hose. Be sure to ask about the nearby Aire de Seville spa, which has hammam-like treatments in a former manor house.

4. Hotel Casa 1800 Seville (4 Star) ~ Boutique Luxe in City Centre
Painstakingly stylish, Hotel Casa 1800 calls upon Sevillian symbolism for its décor inspiration. The 24 rooms are each unique, with exposed brick, tiny terraces and enormous beds characterizing the space, which was a 19th century home. Because of its proximity to the Giralda and Barrio Santa Cruz, you’ll be just steps from the city’s main attractions and dining options, but can easily retreat to your room when the hot midday hits.
The hotel also boasts afternoon tea, a gorgeous terrace to take in the views and comfortable common areas. Casa 1800 is ideal for couples and travelers not needing a car, though children are welcome.

5. Hotel Doña María (4 Star) ~ Location, Location, Location
Long considered a hotel heavyweight, the chunky furniture, coat of arms and hotelier tradition of Doña María are part of the charm. Choose a room that opens onto a small side street where you can hear horse carriages clip-clopping past the cathedral or opt for a more affordable interior room and spend that saved money on a cocktail on the rooftop terrace!
The location can’t be beat – you could throw stones into the Archbishop’s Palace from here – and the price is more than reasonable for where the hotel stands, just meters from the Cathedral and Alcázar palace.

6. Silken Al-Andalus Palace (4 Star) ~ Executive Elegance
Spain’s hotel brands are a safe choice where quality and price go hand-in-hand. Though a bit further from the city’s main attractions, the spacious and recently renovated Al-Andalus palace is a hit for quiet accommodations near business districts. Rooms are modern and comfortable, though this place hasn’t got as much character as options closer to the center.
Address: Avenida de la Palmera, s/n (Heliópolis), 41012
Private Room Price: 88€ / 125€
Amenities: Wi-fi, 24 hour reception, street parking, air conditioning, breakfast included, pool, lock box, satellite TV.

The granddaddy of hotels in Seville – and for decades its only five-star establishment within the city limits – Alfonso XIII was commissioned for the 1929 Iberoamerican Fair as a luxury hotel. Sitting just south of the cathedral and dripping with mudéjar hallmarks, rooms are sumptuously decorated in local style and spacious to boot. Spain’s dignitaries and celebrities stay here, including Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise when they filmed ‘Knight and Day’ in 2008.
Dining and drinking here is a treat, too: the bar boasts exclusive cocktails prepared by bartender Antonio, a master who has worked around the world (and his mint julep is better than in Kentucky!). Ask him for recommendations for gastronomic events around the city.
