The EME Cathedral Hotel is the It-Hotel since it opened it’s doors in 2008. It is definitely the place I want to be when in Seville! I have been going there for four years now and it has failed to disappoint me, either if it is just for a drink in their fabulous five-level terraza or spending the weekend.
Last week I took my husband on a surprise short break to Seville and booked us a room there. Once you park the car the valet takes it away to be kept elsewhere (who cares…), and you are immediately showed the way to 20 Pasos bar where some washed up (but still stunning) model hands you a complementary glass of cava (yes they do book their staff from Central Casting!). Don’t worry about your bags or for the matter checking-in, everything will be taken care of at the right moment, for now relax, drink your cava and enjoy the music provided to you by the in-house DJ.
As usual we had all kinds of plans for our stay in Seville but yet again we failed to led them through… Trust me it is very hard to leave EME!! You have absolutely everything you need to be happy without leaving… great bars, restaurants, a staff ready to fulfill your every need, music all around, a wonderful rooftop-pool… Very difficult, they trap you in!
Hazed with bubbly drinks when you finally make it to your room (oh dear!) billion thread cotton sheets, amenities that are everything they should be and more, walk-in rainforest shower, marble tub, a stereo set with EME’s CD, modern but not too minimalistic décor. They do take the 5star design hotel concept seriously.
Dinner at Santo Restaurant is ordering the tasting menu. Please order their famous Mojitos afterwords. The view from the terrace is indescribable! Face to face with the third largest cathedral in the world, as if you could almost touch it.
Every morning wake up for the perfect breakfast at Patio de Los Naranjos where an Egg Menu is waiting for you at the table. Delicious!
With Seville’s extremely hot days go for a dip in the terrace pool and work on your tan.
Unfortunately I never made time to try the SPA Despacio but it is a very very good excuse to book another weekend.
For lunch try having a burger and coke at Bistro “Santo”, again flawless.
It is one of those places that you really don’t want to say goodbye to. While you do, buy their CD and the most trendy rubber ducky in the world.
