Hotel Alfonso XIII
- Calle San Fernando 2
Lonely Planet review for Hotel Alfonso XIII
As much a monument as it is an accommodation option, and certainly more affordable if you come for a cup of coffee as opposed to a room, this striking hotel – conceived as the most luxurious in Europe when it was built in 1928 – was constructed in tandem with the Plaza de España for the 1929 world fair.
The style is classic neo-Mudéjar with glazed tiles and terracotta bricks.
