Hotel Posada del Lucero

Right in the city center but far from the noise and the hustle and bustle, this hotel occupies a 16th century inn. The layout has kept the original simplicity and freshness, so characteristic of the popular Andalusian architecture, while adding a layer of modernity. The main patio is decidedly chic, with designer furniture and white marble columns. Old posters of the Feria de Sevilla adorn some angles. A beautiful metaphor for this city: the old and the new side by side. It feels good in this bright, soothed space. Hotel employees are busy all around, caressing the silence with their whispers. On the top floor, the terrace opens onto the Andalusian sky, against the backdrop of the Greek-inspired pediment of the Municipal Archives building. A small pool and a series of deckchairs complete this sleek setting, where it is possible to settle down for a drink. Rooms are functional and well equipped. Mine has a stone wall that recalls the age of the house. No superfluous gadget, no flashy decoration. Here, luxury lives in subtlety and calm. The next morning I take a light and tasty breakfast in a room opening on the patio. The staff is professional and relaxed, with a Sevillian smile. Before leaving the hotel, I have a glass of fresh water from the botijo ​​made available by the house, as no doubt already made travelers in the sixteenth century. Find the taste of history. That too is luxury.
