Wow Factor: Antique Meets Modern Chic
This hotel is simply beautiful. Small artisan details abound at each turn, such as wood carvings, paneled ceilings, alcoves containing Roman busts, and stained glass doors. The interior design fuses traditional and contemporary design elements perfectly, creating a stylish interior space inside a former 18th century church vestry. The fashionable interiors combine the best of classic Andalusian design, including decorative painted tilework and rooms surrounding a multi-story courtyard accented by a Moorish fountain. One of a kind antique furniture, restored with modern fabrics and bold accents, can be found throughout. The staff is friendly and helpful, and with only 25 rooms, the hotel has a cozy, boutique feel.
Design & Style
We couldn’t get enough of the trendy chandeliers located in the rooms, bathrooms, and public spaces. The lighting design throughout the hotel was stellar. We absolutely loved the signature black chandelier in the lounge, floating below a silver ceiling and juxtaposed by cherry-red vinyl chairs complete with silver carvings. We were also crazy about the hotel’s fancy hand-carved gold and silver mirror frames and lighting accents, often brimming with metallic flower flourishes. We also loved Sacristía de Santa Ana’s color scheme: warm earth tones dressed up with bright splashy accent colors, floral patterns, and metallic highlights.
Location, Location, Location!
The hotel is located at Alameda de Hércules, a wonderful jumping off point from which to explore Seville. About a 15-20 minute walk from Seville Cathedral and the central sites, it’s a little off the tourist path, although by taxi it’s a quick ride. If you choose to walk, you’ll wander though the heart of Seville’s shopping district. Sacristía de Santa Ana is located in a thriving, youthful neighborhood without many tourists. As a result the food is inexpensive and authentic. This happens to be an emerging gastronomic district, so dining options abound everywhere!
A Room With a View
Popular Alameda de Hércules is a hopping night spot as well as a culinary hotspot. The hotel opens onto this lively plaza, which brims with tapas bars, cocktail lounges, and outdoor cafes. After a long day of sightseeing, be sure to join in the fun and pop down for a late dinner, Spanish style. Enjoy a glass of sangria, or a mojito or two. This really hits the spot on summer evenings after the sun has set and taken the heat of the day with it. Although the sounds of revelry are in full swing at night, you’ll also catch live accordion music or flamenco guitar from your room if you’re lucky.
