About us

Hotel Inglaterra Sevilla

A royal hotel

In 1857, after the demolition of the old Convent of Casa Grande de San Francisco, located on Plaza Nueva opposite City Hall, Fonda Inglaterra was opened, an inn which was an authentic palace of Sevillian hospitality and, on an international level, the best hotel in Seville. The local press pointed out in its pages “the joy that, finally, Seville will have an accommodation worthy of its category as capital of the kingdom”.

For more than 160 years, this hotel witnessed the history of Seville being an important point of reference not just as a hotel school but also as the accommodation of choice for many celebrities.

Due to its status as Seville’s most prestigious accommodation, in the late-Nineteenth and early-Twentieth century, the hotel received the visit of illustrious people such as King Alfonso XIII (1915), Queen Elisabeth of Belgium (1921), the Prince of Wales (1927), Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen (1862) and the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1863) among others.

Hotel Inglaterra today

Today, “La Fonda” has become Hotel Inglaterra, turning 160 years old in 2017, a commemoration which makes us the city’s most senior hotel and one of the oldest in Spain.

Since we opened our doors to the public in 1857, we have always been at the service of current times, adjusting to the requirements of our clients and committed to the highest standards of work. Throughout these years we have undergone numerous renovations which have placed us among the best hotels in Seville, maintaining the national and international prestige which we have enjoyed throughout our more than one and a half centuries of history.

In 2007, to commemorate our 150th anniversary, the Spanish Government awarded Hotel Inglaterra for the second time the Spanish Tourist Merit Award, which acknowledged our 150 years of service to Seville’s hospitality industry.
