Un Patio En Santa Cruz offers a comfortable place to stay, right in the heart of the famous “barrio de Santa Cruz”, which is itself the heart of Seville.
Housed in a carefully restored Sevillan house from the 19th century, the unusual name gives a clue one of the hotel's key features, the central marble patio from where you can gaze straight up to the sky. This is a lovely city position, surrounded by narrow cobbled streets, other old traditional houses with beautiful facades, and lots of lively tapas bars and nice restaurants.
The recent restoration has given the hotel a crisp clean modern air without putting a dent in the history. Modern facilities abound, with a lift, satellite TVs and WiFi connections, but guests will also be attracted by the top floor terrace and bar with its views of the cathedral and the Giralda.
The thirteen bedrooms provide single, double or triple accommodation, small but warm and comfortable and very modern. Double-glazing and air-conditioning should ensure that the life of the city does not intrude on the peace of the hotel guests. The rooms on the top floor have direct access to the rooftop terrace.
Un Patio En Santa Cruz is well located with all the highlights of the city within easy walking distance: the Alcazar, the Cathedral, the old tobacco factory, the Maria Luisa park.

This is a lovely little two star hotel, great value, that places you right in the centre of Seville. We suggest twin rooms rather than doubles for a bit more space.
A small room with a double bed facing into the central patio of the hotel.
Larger room with double or twin beds on the upper floors, with a small juliet balcony overlooking the street.
Like many city hotels, Un Patio En Santa Cruz has no restaurant so neither breakfast nor dinner is available in the hotel. There are lots of bar-cafeterias in the Santa Cruz area, so join the locals and have your breakfast out.
Sevilla is like a mosaic of civilisations and cultures: Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Christians. Its an adventure of discovery to wander through its streets and monuments. At Un Patio En Santa Cruz, all of Seville is on your doorstep, most notably the Barrio de Santa Cruz with narrow streets, white-washed houses, balconies overflowing with flowers,……
La Giralda - the most universal symbol of Seville
The cathedral - second largest cathedral in the world, built on the previous Moorish mosque
Torre del Oro - on the banks of the Guadalquivir river
The Royal Fortress
Outside of Seville, you could visit:
Carmona (city walls, palaces, Roman mosaic)
Écija (moorish walled town)
Osuna (stunning scenery all around)
Jerez (for the sherry, of course!)
Coto Doñana National park
Golf and horse-riding are nearby.
Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|Although hotel staff of El Patio de Santa Cruz was very friendly and welcoming, we were very displeased by the quality of the room and hotel appearance, and especially the price-quality ratio:|
- Room was very small
- Very noisy surroundings
- Small and outdated bathroom, with little amenities
- Interior of room and hotel in general was run-down modern
For a total of almost €130 per night we truly expect better, in line with other hotels we've stayed in via Little Hotels of Spain.
|It was our third visit to Seville and third to your hotel, all lovely as usual!|
|The hotel was reasonably priced for one so close to the centre. Parking is very expensive, although this is not the fault of the hotel. We were dismayed to find bugs in the beds, although the hotel dealt with this immediately and we were also offered another room.|
|My wife and I are just back from touring in Spain. We stayed at two Little Hotels.|
Un Patio en Santa Cruz in Seville. This is in the heart of the Barrio Santa Cruz, and on the doorstep of the Cathedral and The Alcazar. The hotel itself has front rooms overlooking a ten foot wide street and is a bit noisy into the night, as there are bars within 50 mts each way and the sound carries up the narrow street. The other rooms are internal with a small window opening onto the stairs. The rooms are compact but do the job. I think a bit pricey.
Parking is not available on the steet. The nearest underground parking is 75mts away. The best food we found in a resturant was the Vineria San Telmo directly adjacent to the parking pedestrian exit. Parking is #11 per 24hrs. 6/10. I would suggest earplugs or loads of alcohol.
Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|After five marvellous days in Seville, we went back to Italy... I'm already getting nostalgic about the trees full of oranges, the light around the Giralda, and 'chantes'. Your hotel is charming and has the beauty of little things done well, which will remain a lovely memory. Until the next time! E. & A.|
|A really super little hotel, charming, I loved every moment! For sure we will return someday. Thanks to all. M.V.|
|Didn't know what to expect when I arrived in Seville but I have to say this was the best hotel I've stayed in during my 4 weeks trip in Spain. It really doubled my Seville experience. Great location, could stay another week, really! Well done guys! J.N.|
