Casa del Poeta Seville
You are at the heart of Barrio Santa Cruz, the scenic old Jewish Quarter — ideal for exploring the roads at the quieter early evenings and weekends. You are five minutes’ walk from the Palace as well as the Alcazar Royal Palace; the shopping district is roughly 10 minutes away. The only disadvantage of this resort’s place is the narrow cul-de-sac is in a pedestrianised area, therefore taxis can not drop you off in the doorway.
Style & personality
The resort is constructed in the normal Sevillano style of chambers around an arcaded terrace with a fountain. Unusually, this terrace is open instead of roofed, and bursting with greenery; terracotta baskets of frondy ferns and vibrant geraniums, and ivy hanging from the top floors with tendrils trailing romantically within the balconies. The proprietor Angelo is Tuscan, therefore Roman artwork and artefacts attract a classical signature, in addition to modern works by Andalucian artists. The resort is so-named since the poet Ximenez de Enciso is thought to have been born.
Service & amenities
Anticipate a fantastic variety of single malt whisky, brandies and gins from the pub, with exceptionally courteous and attentive support. Live guitar (classical, not flamenco), at the terrace every evening along with the roof terrace provides wonderful views of Santa Cruz and Seville Cathedral. Free Wi-Fi can be offered.
Rooms are a fantastic size. The standard rooms have bathrooms while the suites have showers and L’Occitane lemon verbena solutions. Many rooms look on the smaller or central side patios; space 27 includes a patio on the alleywayliving room 24 includes a patio, and space 25 a fantastic view. Both miss Santa Cruz church along with the Arabian Italian Consulate’s palm tree-filled backyard.
Suites have kettles and tea-making facilities. Décor is in muted tones of green and gray, with a few delightful hand-painted wall panels of vines and palms, in addition to decorated headboards. Bed linen is silky-smooth 500-thread count Egyptian cotton.
