"Stunning hotel and building, but disappointing service"
Maybe when you have such a splendid and grandiose building the people simply want to be seen in it, and the service and coffee don't matter so much. We stopped by for breakfast and were taken in by the outstanding beauty of the building, it is hard to believe it only opened in 1929. Our Australian friends were particularly amazed as many buildings in Sydney are from the same period, and while Sydney is a beautiful city, there is no comparison. So I recommend stepping into the beautiful open courtyard and taking in the stunning architecture. If you are looking for breakfast, Seville has some great places for good coffee and a fresh croissant, with equally good service, sadly Hotel Alfonso is not one of them, even if the price is more than twice what you'd pay elsewhere.
"Atmosphere next to Alkaza "
Even if you don't stay here don' t miss a breakfast , a dinner or just an evening dring or coffee . The service is not the quickest you can have but the quality and the atmosphere of the restaurant /cafe is one of the best . You will feel special
"Beautiful hotel; poor service"
This is truly a beautiful hotel, and we enjoyed our 3-day stay. However the service was slower than what I'd expect in even a 3-star hotel, especially in the Americana Bar and patio area. It took nearly 30 minutes to get a drink, and the prices are crazy expensive. And our room had some features that made for less-than-restful sleep, such as bright lights that wouldn't turn off. The "auto" light in the closet wouldn't go out when we shut the door, so we had a "crack" of bright light spilling across our bed all night. In addition, they have bright lights UNDER the sink area in the bathroom that CANNOT be turned off, and even covering the shelf below the sink with 2 layers of towels still didn't dim the light enough to keep from ruining our night vision if we went into the bathroom in the middle of the night. The breakfast buffet was amazing and delicious. So much to eat, so little time. It even included self-serve fresh squeezed orange juice and Codorniu cava (sparkling wine). However, coffee was not self-serve, and trying to get your first cup or a refill was a long, frustrating affair. Overall, we're glad we stayed here, but might try someone else next time. Given the price, we expected MUCH better service, and also a room better suited to sleeping.
"Meal you will never forget"
Not often I write a review not knowing which bit to highlight ... Walking in your jaw drops open at the splendid and style, The courtyard for pre dinner drinks just stunning as the day turns to night (also nice they allow smoking as open air) Excellent drinks choices and mock tails - when you are ready you are seated to experience the most fantastic thought through food - artichoke entree is a must, and the tenderloins just melt - service excellent - total class and no rush and happy to work the food at your pace - very memorable evening all round thank you
"The Michelin Guide is Right"
This is a five star hotel. In every way. Although this is a popular tourist hotel (bus tour one night stays) it will satisfy any need - for the business traveler to the sophisticated experience-gatherer. Steeped in history - although the hotel is not that old (built in 1930 as I recall) it is in the midst of the historic area making it an excellent area for walking tours of the city. The hotel itself is a bit separated with a setback from the street. Although not a small hotel it has the feel of a boutique hotel steeped in luxury. This is the perfect hotel for Seville, a fantastic story in history. Enjoy.
