Hotel in a mansion

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 19, 2012

To be honest my stay at this hotel was very mixed. Please bear in mind that it has been a few years since i was at this hotel, things may have changed since I was there.

Location- was on Avenida la Palmera over by the football stadium. About a 20 minute walk to Parque Maria Luisa. There was a bus stop directly behind the hotel that would get you downtown without any great problem. Location was probably more suited to a honeymoon or business stay than a touristing stay. It is a basically residential area, there is little in the way of convenience shops or anything like that nearby. Their website claims the hotel is 5 minutes from the Cathedral (the bus ride to downtown was like 15-20 minutes, so I don't know what mode of transportation they are assuming you are using.)

The room- I got a single room, which i think was a big mistake. It was located on the ground level next to the parking spaces. The bed itself was comfortable and the room was relatively well furnished in very classic style. However, the armoire just wouldn't close. At the time of my visit i thought that some of the antiques they trumpeted having needed a bit of going over to make sure they worked perfectly. Unfortunately, at the time the neighbors had a dog that liked to show off the fact that he had a thunderous bark

Breakfast- breakfast came with the room fee and was both plentiful and quite good.

Service- The people that worked at the hotel when i was there were really very nice. There was a sort of manager on duty that would go around and check on the guests as they were sitting in the common areas, I personally found him very standoffish, though the front desk folks were quite friendly and helpful. At night it seems the staff was reduced to just one person and it didn't seem like anyone spent much time in the common areas later (after sunset or dinner).
I will say that the night man was really very kind to me, I had gone downtown for a meal and almost as soon as i got back i felt not well. He sat in the downstairs and chatted for a while until my stomach had stabilized. I remember the service being generally pretty good, not exceptional, but nothing objectionable.

In general I would probably not stay here again if my purpose for visiting Sevilla was to visit the sites and be nearby. This is more secluded, somewhat time consuming to reach if you don't bring a car. For a hotel that has a 4 star rating...one could do better.

Unique Quality: The Villa de la Palmera is a reconverted mansion on the lovely Avenida la Palmera. It is a bright place with wide marble staircases and large common areas decorated tastefully with large paintings and bright colors. Walking along the avenue is really very pretty, there are a few restaurants within walking distance.

What I did see of the other rooms were quite nice (doubles and larger). The downstairs common areas were nice, they felt a bit too large (the rec room inside with these gigantic ceilings )
There was a swimming pool (didn't use) and a lovely balcony where you could get drinks and food (though i dont remember the extent of food service)

If you want to stay in a mansion this would be an interesting stay.

Directions: within sight of the Real Betis stadium
