The Best Cheap Hotels in Seville

The smell of orange blossom, the soft percussion of flamenco hand claps, the taste of dry cherry and jamón ibérico: the capital of Andalusia, most “Spanish” of all Spain’s regions, stimulates the senses like few other cities. Boasting an average of almost 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, it also heats up well before most places in Europe, making it an ideal getaway outside of high season – in the middle of summer be prepared for some serious heat, though; the mercury regularly rises past 40 degrees.

A decent-sized city, Seville has no shortage of hotels, either, many of which trade off Andalusia’s Moorish past in their layout and design. Intricately patterned tiles, babbling water fountains, and cool internal courtyards lend an air of luxury to even some of the more budget options in the city. Keep aware, too, that the centre is very walkable, and beautiful throughout, so there’s no real need to splash out for digs right next to its tourist heart.
