Why we recommend Gran Melia Colon

This hotel is one of the few five-star hotels in central Seville. Apart from the beautiful glass dome in the lobby, this refurbished historic hotel feels very modern, with pieces by designers like Philippe Starck and Edra. A distinctly Spanish feel is present throughout: amongst the red flower chairs, white chaise longues, black fringed pillars, and shiny gold pendant lamps, look out for replica bulls’ heads on the wall, and the tapas bar, El Burladero, has a bullfighting theme.
