After a 12 year construction effort, the hotel fit for royalty was opened by none other than King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia. Under the guidance of the Luxury Collection brand, the hotel has benefited from a recent renovation, allowing this historic gem to shine once more and show off modern features throughout its 151 elegant guest rooms and suites.

Hotel Alfonso XIII also includes a charming Andalusian patio with leafy gardens and fountains, an outdoor pool, and a fully-featured fitness center, plus a super chic restaurant called San Fernando, which awaits guests to savor the best classic dishes. Bar Americano will be the place where your favorite drink can be enjoyed, with the spirit of Ernest Hemingway presiding over your discussion.
