Hotel Villa de la Palmera is located on the Avenida de la Palmera, the site of the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition. The hotel is in an affluent section of Seville outside the city center, a neighborhood with private residences and several consulates along streets lined with palm and orange trees. The hotel is a former private home of the Marquis and Marquise of Castilleja, built in the early 20th century and renovated for use as a hotel in 1999. The 12 guest rooms are spacious and comfortable, complimented by a full range of four star hotel amenities and services including: breakfast and room service, swimming pool, gardens and guest terrace, free parking and free (WiFi) internet access.

The owners chose to leave much of the original furnishings in the home, including an impressive collection of paintings and antique furniture which the family has acquired over several centuries. The two living rooms feature works by 15th century painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo, fireplaces, and marble or parquet floors. Comfortable chairs and sofas make either room a restful alternative. Just outside guests can choose to relax on the terrace or in the poolside gardens. The home has been the subject of several magazine articles, and art historians have paid visits to document the paintings and antiques found throughout the house.

Location Top |

The Hotel Villa de la Palmera is located on the Avenida de la Palmera, site of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The location is outside the city center, yet convenient to many of the green spaces of the city, including the Maria Luisa Park. Guests can reach the city center in a variety of ways: by taxi in 5 minutes; by city bus (stop just 50 meters from hotel); or by bicycle, making use of the city's new extensive system of bicycle lanes. The Avenida de la Palmera is lined with palm trees and home to the beautiful buildings constructed for the 1929 Expo, many of which have extensive gardens and now serve as consulates, private residences or official university buildings. Adjacent to the hotel is the stadium of the Real Betis Balompie football team. Close by is the Hospital Virgen del Rocio, as well as the neighborhood and University branches along Reina Mercedes.

Approximate walking distances are below. The hotel is outside of the city center, and we recommend taking a taxi (5 minutes to historic center) or city bus (bus stop 50 metres from hotel; about 10 minute ride to the city center):
  • Real Betis Football Stadium - 1 minute
  • Parque Maria Luisa - 15 minutes
  • Cathedral - 25-30 minutes

Why we selected this hotel... Top |

We have ventured outside of the city center for the first time, lured by a hotel which offers guests a different experience in Seville. The former residence of the Marquis and Marquise of Castilleja is operated and maintained by the same family who once lived in the house. As city center residents, upon entering the grounds we immediately experience the feel of a guest in a private, country villa rather than a hotel. We especially enjoy the gardens and pool, counting over ten different types of trees in the poolside garden and over twenty different types of flowers on the hotel grounds. The guest rooms, each unique in layout and decoration, are very generous in size and impressively furnished. We especially like the second floor rooms with high ceilings and large windows, many with multiple balconies. The terrace overlooking the pool and gardens is a wonderful setting for breakfast or an afternoon drink. The two main living rooms are beautifully decorated with antiques and historic paintings as well as comfortable couches and chairs. The hotel is also the perfect choice for those arriving by car who do not want to navigate the city center looking for parking. Guests can park for free and easily arrive to the city center by bus or taxi to see the sights, then retire to a more relaxed atmosphere for the night.
