PRESS SECTION - FROMMER’S SEVILLE, GRANADA & THE BEST OF ANDALUSIA



 

Casa Número 7 Hotel. This is as close as you can get to staying in an elegant private home in Seville. Next to Santa Cruz barrio, the little inn is in a beautiful, sensitively restored 19th-century mansion where you live in style, with a butler to serve you breakfast. Small in size, Casa Número 7 Hotel is big on style and grace notes, recapturing the aura of Old Seville. It thinks itself, with justification, as a civilised oasis in the midst of a bustling city. The building envelops an old atrium and is filled with such touches as family photographs, Oriental area rugs, a marble fireplace and floral print love seats. Rooms are individually decorated in old Sevillano style, with impeccable taste and an eye to comfort. All come with good-size bathrooms with tub/shower combo. Our favourite is the spacious Yellow Room, with its “Juliet balcony” overlooking the street.
