Every inch the former convent that now houses the three-star Hotel Convento de la Gloria is “holy” stimulating. This time capsule of a hotel is full of relics from several eras in Spain’s history. There are tapestries depicting battle scenes, Arabesque lamps, incense burners and a priest’s robe hanging near the staircase.
The hotel’s 35 rooms are somewhat simpler. A headboard with a dozen spikes gives a medieval “poke,” while a pink-and-beige floral couch is more 1950. It appears the Ottomans, the Huns and the holy sisters were all here, leaving their marks on the floors, furnishings, walls and beds. Within this historic swirl, you’ll also spot a flat-screen TV, telephone and safe.
Bathrooms are private and feature sinks mounted on antique sewing machine stands. The suite offers a Jacuzzi.
Note that the hotel does not have a street entrance. To access the hotel, you must walk by the street-level cafeé, through the bar and to the back of the restaurant, where there is a door leading into the hotel’s lobby (we thought it might lead to the kitchen).
Breakfast is included and can be enjoyed either in the restaurant or the café downstairs. Wi-Fi is available for a fee and the entire hotel is non-smoking.

El Centro, Seville, Spain
About the Hotel Convento La Gloria 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.
