Hostal Callejón del Agua is located on a quiet street corner in the Santa Cruz quarter, in the middle of the city center. After several years of renovations to the former 19th century Andalusian residence, the hostal opened in April of 2006. While technically classified as a 2 star hostal, the quality and amenities offered in this establishment are more representative of a 1 or 2 star boutique hotel. With three sides facing small streets, Hostal Callejón del Agua offers exterior windows in each of the 16 rooms. The original wrought-iron gates and window coverings, found throughout the house, have been preserved during renovations. Inside the hostal, attention to the historic nature of the building has been balanced with many modern conveniences. The decoration was carefully considered, with special attention to the little details . Black and white photographs of the family which owns the establishment, dressed in typical sevillian attire, are found on every floor.
