Hotel Casa 1800
Located in the thick of the Santa Cruz district’s most labyrinthine walkways and just a skip from the Cathedral and La Giralda, the total serenity experienced upon entering this neutral-toned, 33-room property is a welcome surprise. Dating back to 1864, the three-story Hotel Casa 1800 has since been refurbished to its original glory. Bedrooms feature either gilded or four-poster frame headboards, exposed brick walls, parquet floors, and the same rich velvet upholstery and marble detailing found in the luminous chandelier-ed courtyard. Lounge lizards appreciate the rooftop pool and solarium as well as the complimentary afternoon tea, which is offered daily on the premises. If size doesn’t matter, the deluxe rooms with four-poster bed, private terrace and whirlpool are the most romantic choices.
