The Hostal Casa Sol y Luna bed is a refreshing change from the usual hotel humdrum. Decorated more like a bed and breakfast than a Spanish hostal, this pension charmed the pants off us (metaphorically speaking, of course!). Keep in mind, however, reserving one of these 10 sweet rooms can present a challenge: They are generally booked solid weeks—even months—in advance.
The Spanish-English couple behind the pension has a penchant for antiques. Some of the eclectic furniture—such as the antiquated wardrobes and Victorian-esque, dark-wooden beds—looks as if it were purchased at Christie's. Old clocks, collectibles, bed netting and artwork (no fancy TVs or phones here) set rooms apart from run-of-the-mill hostals. The attic room is the starlet; make sure to request it first.
Bathrooms are exterior in eight of the 10 rooms, but they're big, bright and beautiful.
Downstairs, creaky French doors surround a bright, sunny common room. Note: There is no air conditioner—a fact that makes Casa Sol y Luna an ideal option for anytime but summer.
The hostal looks a little sketchy from the outside, but it's centrally situated in a safe, quiet area near Iglesia del Salvador.

El Centro, Seville, Spain
About the Casa Sol y Luna neighborhood
Centro is, not surprisingly, Seville's hub, anchored by Plazas San Francisco and Nueva and filled with shopping streets, churches, museums, restaurants, cafés. For visitors who must be at the center of the action, this is the place to be. Note, though, that because it's so in demand, it's also not cheap. Other hallmarks: loud cathedral bells, an absence of Internet cafés, and the obligatory Starbucks.
