"The place to spend your honeymoon."
Palatial rooms, marble floors, solid carved wooden doors, large bath, beautiful views, perfect temperature control, doubled glazed windows, soundproof rooms, 24-hour room service that was prompt with food at the appropriate temperature, mini bar. Satellite TV included Sky News, Raiuno, Rai2, and Rai3. Twice daily housekeeping. No need to leave your room but if you do, the halls are lined with French doors overlooking the courtyard and there is a beautiful staircase with tiles. We enjoyed the in-house restaurants and the courtyard. Great porter's. We had no issues with the service or the quality of the food. We found the service in the restaurants to be cheerful, professional, and prompt, however the prices are high. Lunch for two at Cafe Fernando with shared salad and two Mains and a bottle of water was €80. The breakfast buffet is good value for €18 person. The only disappointment was a very unskilled and untrained reception staff. Very surprising for a Starwood Property. This hotel uses the energy saving system where the room card must be inserted in order for the lights or air conditioning to work
When we arrived at this hotel, they had no booking for us - our travel agents hotel booking organisation had booked us into a hotel of the same name in Granada. The staff could not have been more helpful, finding us a lovely room and sorting everything out with our agents. The hotel is in a lovely square only 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral and Palace. The service was excellent throughout, great breakfast, and a roof terrace bar with great views.
"A city oasis"
There will be plenty cheaper but few better than this. Close to all Seville s wonderful art and attractions the Alfonso is a Jewell of a hotel. Posh but unpretentious... efficient but personal ... old but modern. What's great place
"Great location and concierge "
I wasn't impressed with check-in as I had to ask questions to get most of the information that a front desk should be sharing with all guest. I had room 101 and it's the floor above the lobby and restaurant. I could hear the piano playing and some noise from the lobby area. The room was nice but I asked for two beds at check-in and the beds weren't separated. So I had the front desk have housekeeping make up the beds as twin beds. This should have been done before taking us to the room. The room including the bathroom were very spacious. There was a small hallway that separated the bathroom from the bathroom with a door and this came in handy not to wake up my friend when departing the room early. The automatic blackout shades were cool and doesn't let a bit of light in. There's water replacement in the room every day. Francisco was the standout at the hotel. He helped with great restaurant recommendations, flamenco shows, and sights tickets (especially skip the line options). The hotel is walking distance to all the top sights, restaurants, and shops. There's a tram that runs right in front of the hotel.
"Amazing and Historic Hotel"
It takes a bit of winding between the gardens and the two palaces in order to reach the hotel which is at the entrance to the primarily walking only, or horse and carriage if you prefer, area of old town. The check-in staff was wonderful and they had upgraded me to a corner suite on the top floor, room 320 which boasts a living area with views of one of the two palaces right across the street, and in the bedroom the same view plus a view in the direction of the other palace and pool. From the lobby to the room the decor was extravagant and impressive throughout. The bouquet of roses on the living room table were an especially nice touch. I headed out right away to begin exploring with some helpful tips from the amazing Concierge. I went first to Plaza De Espana, which I must say may rival the castle in Prague as my favorite man-made structure. It is no wonder television and movie directors from shows and pictures such as Game of Thrones and Star Wars have utilized it as a backdrop. The surrounding park is also impressive. From there I headed out along the river, stopping at sights on the way including the tower, the bull fighting ring, the city’s oldest bridge, and both the old and new markets, before turning inland again to the modern and old highlights including the “mushroom” as some locals call it, to the stunning and massive Cathedral. Tickets for the Palace and the Cathedral can be hard to come by so book in advance or opt for the combo ticket, but be warned even in May you will be fighting against large tour groups from all over the world on the one hand and some high temperatures on the other, with the temperature at 37 degrees Celsius as I walked around. Once back at the hotel I did a little cardio in the small gym before showering and heading out to the pool for some beers and sun. The pool is a highlight, an oasis right in the center of the old town. I did a walk around afterwards and grabbed some dinner at an outdoor tapas bar right next to the cathedral before heading back to the room to catch up on work. I was pleased to find that turndown service included not only slippers which I never use, but some chocolates and my favorite - ice! I made an in-from cocktail before bed. cannot say enough in the way of positive comments on Seville and especially the Hotel Alfonso XIII. The hotel deserves the title as a Luxury Collection Property without a doubt, and from the rooms, the sumptuous buffet, the staff all around especially at the front desk, concierge and pool, it was an outstanding stay.
