Concierge.com's insider take:

Seville's five-star design palace, the EME Catedral, has all the trappings of an avant-garde playground—from an oriental-themed spa and Japanese restaurant to a rooftop pool and juice bar. Converted from 14 houses, this 60-room hotel is within kissing distance of the Giralda and makes the most of it with spacious private terraces (some with hot tubs). Opt for a superior room for cathedral views (the sacrifice is less space), and avoid those overlooking the bar-lined street, which can be noisy at night. The roughly hewn, minimalist decor includes textured walls and simple wooden four-poster beds. Some have the original wooden ceiling beams. The most striking touch is the celosia lattice screen in the central patio, based on Arabic geometric designs and echoed throughout the hotel. in the central patio, based on Arabic geometric designs and echoed throughout the hotel. Santo Restaurante by Martin Berasategui—presided over by Spain's most Michelin-starred chef—serves inventive Cantabrian-Andalusian cuisine (such as caramelized mille-feuille of foie, eels, and apple with creamed potato). There's a Japanese restaurant and tapas bar as well, along with a rooftop terrace that's the hippest hangout in town.—Fiona Flores Watson
