"Fabulous & luxurious!!"
Definitely one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Sure it's expensive but it's worth it! The hotel is stunning to look at both in architectural terms and in the beautifully looked after gardens full of flowers. It's ideally located close to most of the major sites of Seville, Cathedral & Real Alcazar are only 5 minutes walk away, as is the Torro del Oro. The Plaza de Espana & Parque Maria Luisa are 10 mins walk. Plaza de Toros is about 10-12 mins walk & the area of Triana where all the ceramics are is about 20 mins walk. Tram stop right outside the hotel and bus stop to/from airport 10 mins walk away. Many many cafes, restaurants and tapas bars in easy walking distance although I'd recommend wandering a street or 2 off the main drag to find the best, most authentic & not overpriced ones! The pool area is great, lots of sun loungers and very attentive staff. There's plenty of shade from the palm trees if sitting in the sun is not your thing, but equally plenty of loungers in the sun if it is. The pool bar was good value and provides the usual array of cocktails and beers and a selection of light bites. The gym area was good and there's a sauna although we didn't use it. Breakfast was fantastic! Such a large selection of hot & cold foods, a good standard of continental breakfast pastries & cakes with lots of fresh fruit, an egg/omelette station & again friendly, attentive staff. The courtyard area was great for a drink or a light bite day or night. The restaurant looked good but we didn't try it. The rooms are large and comfortable with a luxurious finish. I'd recommend joining the Luxury Collection Club because for the extra money you get great value: an upgraded room, a 100 US dollar spend in restaurant/bar, breakfast included, we received a bottle of champagne on arrival & a bottle of sherry another night. Little touches like a turn down service and chocolates on your pillow whilst you're out to dinner make a big difference to the overall experience. Free wifi throughout the hotel and the rooms which we had no problem accessing. Marbles floors, lavish interiors and fresh flowers everywhere make this a very special hotel to stay in. Highly recommended and well worth splashing out on!
"stunning building in good location let down by lack of service and poor food"
This was our 2nd stay at this hotel, the building is amazing and breakfast surpassed our recollection of it however for a luxury hotel there were many areas that could be improved; 1.Dinner in the restaurant was poor, service slow, food was uncooked and when this was pointed out the dish was taken away and recooked but was cold by the time it reached the table and my companions had long finished their main course. 1 starter,1 pasta dish 1 salmon main and 1 steak with half a bottle of red wine was Euros 130.this was the only meal we had in the hotel, we were able to find much better fare in the town for 2/3 the cost. 2.service by the pool was slow-an order for a club sandwich with fries took almost an hour-after 30mins we were told that although we had requested it without mayo' this had been overlooked and the dish would have to be cooked again which led to further delay-this was also cold on arrival. The pool area was quiet there were no other guests ordering food there was no obvious reason why service should be so poor. We had lunch outside the hotel for the remainder of our stay 3.The American bar was empty and lacked atmosphere-we ordered cocktails and the barman also brought us a glass of water each which was tepid without ice or lemon-why bother' 4.On arrival there was significant delay in our luggage being delivered to our room. Whilst at the hotel we witnessed other guests carrying their own luggage up the stairs to check in at reception as there were no staff to meet them 5.Although there were 3 adults staying in a suite this was never reflected in the number of cups in the room-it took 2 requests to get an extra one, when this was used it was taken away and not replaced for the rest of our 6 day stay. 5. The A/C did not work for 2 of the nights we were there -as a result it was too hot to sleep-we eventually realised that this was because when the chamber maid serviced the room she opened the balcony doors and had not shut them properly which stopped the A/C from working. All of the above issues could have been remedied with a little more attention to detail and would have made a big difference to our stay. Overall it felt as though the hotel had an inadequate number of staff some of whom were indifferent to the level of service provided-an exception to this was the maitre d at breakfast who was always smiling and helpful.
"Excellent hotel in centre of Seville"
Great situation, a short walk from the Cathedral and the city centre. Beautiful building. Surrounded by lovely gardens and a pool area. Excellent service from start to finish, especially the concierges who were extremely helpful with local knowledge regarding Holy Week processions.
The best hotel in Seville. Best locaation, historic building, fantastic breakfast and big rooms, which is very difficult to find in europe. The hotel is next to the best atractions in the city and itself is tourist place of interest.
I only went to the terrace for a drink but seems to be a nice place to stay, next time in Sevilla I will definitely come as a hotel guest The terrace was very nice, service a bit slow Hotel lobby was magnificent
