A hotel with a long tradition
To talk about Hotel Bécquer in Seville is to talk about historical wealth and tradition. However, it is also a reference of modernity and comfort and a hotel with many future projects.
Hotel Bécquer has continued with the tradition of other hotels whose origins go back to the 19th century. Among them is Hotel Cecil Oriente, a hotel located on Plaza Nueva that closed its doors in 1970. The family who owned it sold it a year later in order to build Hotel Bécquer, on Calle Reyes Católicos, where the old palatial home of the Marquises of Las Torres used to be, owned by the Hon. Mrs. Elvira Marañón y Jiménez and the Hon. Mr. Andrés Lasso de la Vega y Quintanilla.
A hotel with character
Different elements of the aforementioned palatial home were used in the hotels constructions, such as the Renaissance-style bars at hotel reception, the bars that make up the gate of the interior bar, the coffered ceiling of the aforementioned bar and of the Romantic room, the fireplace of the latter and the lead-stained glass windows and doors of the main hall.
These additions were intended to be an inclusion of original and artistic elements in the hotel’s decoration, giving it a special and unique character.
