Concierge.com's insider take:

Tucked away on a side street in Barrio Santa Cruz, Corral del Rey is an elegant small hotel run by two youthful but whip-smart brothers from an aristocratic Anglo-Spanish family. These guys have shown extraordinary attention to detail in restoring their 17th-century palace—the six bedrooms have Norwegian limed-oak floors, made-to-measure marble bathrooms with huge shower cubicles (only rooms 2 and 5 have bathtubs too), eclectic furniture, and original wooden doors and windows. Hook up your iPod to the room's sound system, nibble on a complimentary organic chocolate-covered fig, settle into the soft Egyptian cotton pillows. Book one of the second-floor rooms (4, 5, and 6), which feel more spacious due to their higher, vaulted ceilings. There's also a tiled plunge pool up there that's perfect for an after-dinner dip. An annex across the street, Corral 7, opened in September 2011 with seven additional rooms and a penthouse suite with Giralda views. Although the hotel has no restaurant, a private dining space is available for groups.—Fiona Flores Watson

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

The stylish Corral del Rey proves that small is beautiful, with its six rooms in a seventeenth-century house just a five-minute walk from the Giralda. Though beautifully designed and decorated, the rooms here are snug—in fact, the standard double, delightful for a single traveler, would be tight quarters for two. However, the hotel makes up for its diminutive floor space in a variety of ways—all rooms are well equipped, and there's a roof garden with a Jacuzzi plunge pool and sun loungers. Spanish interior designer Kuky Mora-Figueroa has created rooms with almond-colored walls, bleached-oak floors, battleship-gray window shutters, and beds covered with quilted white cotton coverlets. Rounding out the room amenities are a gratis bottle of La Gitana sherry, an iPod dock, and a DVD player. Best of all, the smiling young staff here take their hospitality personally, and are quick on the draw with restaurant recommendations and sightseeing tips.

—2008 Hot List
