hotel with parking included

by elmap

we're coming to sevilla on 19.May by rent a car and we are planning to stay just one night. can you recommend us a nice and not expensive hotel where we can park our car for free and which is not far from the city centre?

Re: hotel with parking included

by angiebabe

Well someone else might be able to come with information I couldnt find but Ive twice been in Seville - both times with a car - the worst city ive ever been in trying to find ones way around - and both times ended up at the Ibis for assistance with directions - I would recommend staying there - its a good price really - I was on my own so for me it was expensive but for two or more its a good deal, has parking and and is handy to the city centre and both times the staff were helpful (well i was really lucky and both times it was the same guy behind the desk! - about 6 months apart). Its located beside a main road straight into the city so during daylight it will be much easier to follow a map into town.

I ended up staying at a cheap pension in the city centre (La Fabiola - it was in the Lonely Planet and luckily the guy at the Ibis phoned them for me as they dont speak any english - and same when I wanted to stay the second time I visited for the April Feria I phoned them from here at home but it took a while to communicate that they had no vacancies) where there are quite a few cheap pensions - cheap in Seville is still about 30-35 euro for one person and didnt include breakfast, very close to La Geralda - but no free parking - I parked in the best deal which was very convenient but I had to pay - underground parking was about 12 euro for overnight and until I left the next afternoon.

For my visit to the April fair i slept in the car where I had parked next to the Feria - parking was about 10euro and i had a morning flight and the Sevillians were up partying at the Feria all night! so I packed it in about 4am, other people were sleeping in their vehicles as well!, and then drove off to the airport.

mention of the IBIS hotel above reminds me that it is right on the road - Avenida Kansas City - that leads into Seville from Cordoba (and airport) direction - so if you are arriving from that way then it will be almost the first hotel you see on your right. Just past the circumnavigation road that runs around Seville.
Price at the hotel is reasonable and as far as I know, the parking outside is still free. To get into the centre of Seville is fairly easy because you walk for 200 metres to the nearest bus stop and the bus goes down Kansas City then on through the main roads until San Sebastian where you can walk across to the old tobacco building and rear of Alcazar and into the old quarter. IBIS has a standard hotel and you may know the style already. if you want quaint Spanish then this is not it ! But it is handy for car travellers and clean lodgers.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Entre callecitas y...

by fga

Entre callecitas y jardines

A pocos metros de la catedral se encuentran los Reales Alcázares, uno de
los ejemplos más acabados del arte mudéjar (el de los artistas musulmanes
sometidos a los reyes cristianos). El rey Pedro I ordenó construirlo en
1364, sobre la base de palacios árabes.
Es un conjunto arquitectónico en el que alternan salones ricamente
adornados con patios, fuentes y frondosos jardines.
La huella musulmana es omnipresente; en especial, en los arcos de
herradura, la profusión de acequias en las zonas de verde y las
decoraciones con motivos geométricos o inscripciones caligráficas (este
recurso era muy utilizado debido a que los artistas árabes tenían
prohibida la representación de la figura humana).
Imposible dejar de admirar los complejos entramados de los azulejos del
Patio de las Doncellas o la impactante cúpula del Salón de Embajadores.
Al salir de los Alcázares se desemboca en el Patio de Banderas. Esta
pequeña plaza es excelente punto de partida para adentrarse en las
abigarradas callejuelas del barrio de Santa Cruz.
La disposición actual coincide con la de una antigua judería sevillana.
El encanto de las calles comienza por sus nombres (Callejón del Agua,
Vida, Pimienta, Doncellas) y sigue en el trazado laberíntico, propicio
para perderse por horas en la zona.
Lo más característico de la arquitectura andaluza está allí, en las
casitas rigurosamente blancas, balcones con rejas y coloridos tiestos de
flores. Entre las numerosas historias que circulan acerca del barrio, una
afirma que José Zorrilla residía en una de las hosterías del lugar cuando
se inspiró para escribir su obra sobre el mítico seductor Don Juan
Tenorio.
También abundan los restaurantes típicos y las tiendas. En los locales
comerciales pueden adquirirse desde los tradicionales productos de la
alfarería sevillana hasta las más turísticas muñecas vestidas de bailaoras
flamencas, remeras con inscripciones árabes y reproducciones en miniatura
de los monumentos que hicieron célebre a la ciudad.

The Alhambra of Granada could...

by Pegasus74

The Alhambra of Granada could apparently have inspired the Reales Alcazares. Separated from the cathedral by the epicenter of the city’s attractions - Plaza del Triunfo, the once fortress later transformed into palace compound includes shady and interconnected gardens partitioned by arched Moorish walls. Part of which is the Salon de Embajadores where Ferdinand and Isabella received Columbus on his return trip from America. The beautiful arches that form the doorways along three of its walls, with Arabic characters ‘only God conquers’ appearing above the main entrance, will absolutely be captivating to your eyes as were mine.

You Need to Ask for the Check

by Hopkid

In Europe, dining is an experience that is meant to be enjoyed and not hurried through. This is reflected in the wait staff service. You may end up sitting for quite a long time after your dessert has long been eaten and your espresso quaffed. That's because your waiter will not bring you your check until you've asked for it. They don't bring it automatically because they don't want to seem like they are eager to rush you out of the place. So when you're ready to leave, simply get your waiter's attention and confidently ask, "La cuenta, por favor."

Beer, beer, everywhere

by betis1

In McDonalds, for example. Or in the corner market, the bread store, a drink machine. You can find beer almost anywhere. And that goes for liquor as well. Not controlled by some puritan state law, you can buy a bottle of whisky in most food stores, as well as get a mixed drink in most any bar. While not always the case, many drink here in moderation. Sure, six or so drinks are nice, but not in the same place. Making, or rather walking, your way to each bar tends to burn that stuff off. Many prefer a beer or wine with lunch or dinner rather than a Coke.

Catch a bus going to Punta...

by Mayonie

Catch a bus going to Punta Macarena and wander along the Murallas and inside. Walk through the residential quarters and continue towards the commercial center and on to Avenida de Constituccion (where the Catedral and La Giralda is)...a great way to experience a bit of the Spanish way of life!
