Hotel Holos is a boutique hotel in the historical district of Heliopolis, Seville. Built in 1929 for the Iberoamerican Exhibition, Heliopolis was designed around a garden city concept with lush greenery all the more distinguished against the whitewashed buildings.
Hotel Holos retains the old building with stark modern additions designed by MGM architects. A metalwork canopy skirts the building casting shade on the chic modern café and garden where perspex and palm trees sit comfortably side by side. Small and unique, this is an historical and architecturallly interesting bolthole in southern Seville.
Heliopolis is a unique and architecturally interesting place to visit and is a 40 minutes walk, short taxi ride, or pleasant cycle from Seville's city centre. The location is great for those who want to explore the bustling city, yet stay in a quieter spot with flourishing gardens and grand white-washed Andalucian-style houses. Hotel Holos's own garden has an avant-garde lattice of metalwork casting shade on the wooden decking, with large trees towering above, an atmospheric spot for a relaxing evening.
Hotel Holos has a café on the contemporary terrace. Walls of coloured perspex define the area while maintaining the feeling of open spaces created in this modern garden. Simple delights, salads, sandwiches and pasta are on offer. Rates include a continental breakfast which includes freshly squeezed juices and some lovely home-made preserves.
