    Arrived to the hotel and felt ripped off by the taxi driver the cab number was 642 and he refused to run the meter we were traveling with 2kids 8 and 10 years old. Taxi explained that roads are too narrow to take us to the hotel and left us on the main road. The trip from the airport to the hotel was 30 euros and the cab was supposed to be between 20 to 23 according to the web site. Whew we're left to find our own way to the hotel in terribly confusing streets without any signes. This was very unpleasant. The hotel staff was unfriendly and we had to really be firm to ask for the rooms to be near each other fr the safety and to request again the single beds as we needed to stay one adult one chilled per room. Breakfast was a real disaster low quality produce and all white and sugary options. Very cheep and cheerfully. The hotel is on the outskirts of town and it takes about 45 min to get anywhere in that is interesting for the kids. After the unpleasant taxi ride we were on foot and found it hard and tiering for the kids. Do not recommend the hotel and found the taxi unpleasant experience. The humanity at its worst. Greasy and unpleasant.

    Unique Quality: The hotel advertise the pool that is only a lap pool, beautifully entrance and could be trouble unique place but shame about the constant noise

    Directions: Outskirts of town not good for families

Take the road to Atienza, a medieval village not far from Madrid.
I recommend the little museum in Iglesa San Gil with religious and paleontological items.
On the top of the hill is the fortress Castillo Roquero, on this photo you can see the small "watch tower".

Basilica of the Macarena-Basílica Macarena

by spanishguy

This basilica was built by the architect Aurelio G?mez Mill?n in 1949 in Andalusian baroque style. It was commisioned by the Brotherhood of the Macarena, which was founded on 1595 in the Sevillian convent of Saint Basil as a hospitable congregation, whose aim was to attend to the sick, carry out charitable acts among its members and to practice the penance. In the 17th century it was transferred to the parish of Saint Gil. This church caught fire in 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish civil war and the images (Virgin Mary and Jesuscrist) were hiden in private houses.
The veneration of the Virgin of Hope of Macarena is very widespread in town. This representation of the Virgin is famous for the beautiful expression of her face, between smile and weeping.
You can also visit the Museum that contains the accessories, tunics and other items belonging to this Brotherhood, which is one of the most wealthy in Seville

La basílica la construyó el arquitecto Aurelio Gómez Millán en 1949, en estilo barroco andaluz. La obra fue encargada por la Hermandad de la Macarena, fundada en 1595 en el convento sevillano de San Basilio como una congregación hospitalaria, cuyo objetivo era cuidar a los enfermos, hacer actos de caridad y practicar la penitencia. En el siglo XVII se trasladaron a la Parroquia de San Gil, la cual fue incendiada en 1936, al comienzo de la guerra civil española, por lo que las imágenes fueron escondidas en domicilios particulares.
La veneración a la Virgen de la Esperanza Macarena está muy extendida en la ciudad. Esta imagen es famosa por la bella expresión de su cara, entre la sonrisa y el sollozo.
También poduedes visitar el museo que contiene accesorios, túnicas y otros objetos pertenecientes a la hermandad, que es una de las más ricas de Sevilla.

Murillo or San Gil

by froesjel

Hi, I have a question. Next year we're going to Sevilla in june. We would like to make our booking asap because the flight tickets are cheaper that way. So we also want to be sure we have a hotel. We wanted to book hotel Murillo first but then we saw Hotel San Gil is in the old town and has a swimming pool. Prices for the two hotels are very different and I read somewhere that San Gil is a lot further from the city center than they say in the brochure. I also read that San Gil isn't worth his 4 stars and the rooms and breakfast aren't what is promised in the brochure. Can anyone help us with our choice please? Quick answers would be appreciated a lot! Greetings

Re: Murillo or San Gil

by puerto_lover

The old city is great whichever area you stay in (in my opinion) . The Barrio Santa Cruz is the most popular as it is close to the cathedral etc area where all the tourists places are but frankly if you are fit then any place within the old city is not too far from another by walking.
The Hotel San Gil is on the northern edge of the old city and so is about a 20 minute walk to the cathedral. But there are other areas nearby that could be attractive like the Plaza Alameda which is a popular night time area with bars etc surrounding an open area. In June I would think it was busy. Don't know anything about the hotels you mentioned - sorry. June is not a 'peak' month in Seville so booking a hotel is not much of a problem unless you are wanting a specific one. When it gets hot in Andalucia like July & August then Seville gets much hotter and the people in the city try to escape. June is OK but the really busy times are at Easter and in late summer.
