To long ago to remember

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 3, 2006

It was many of years ago and after looking at the website, the hotel has gone through some renovations. I just remember it being an old style place, where you could hear everything. I'm sure some of those qualities have not changed.

Unique Quality: Antique style

Good enough

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 14, 2006

This hotel was perfect for me - that means don't expect excessive luxury there.

The room was pretty small: the two twin beds had no space separating them. We had a small TV, a private safe, a desk and a cupboard with hangers. It was clean and although the hotel doesn't have air conditioning, with the window opened we got fresh air and we never felt embarrassed by the heat.

(If you need a hairdryer, bring your own - when I e-mailed the hotel to ask if they provided them, they said yes, but when we got there we were told they didn't have hairdryers.)

The lift is very small and takes some time to come and pick you up - we were on the second floor so we only used the lift the first day to carry our luggage upstairs.

The reception staff was very polite, friendly and never seemed annoyed by our questions. They spoke English, as opposed to the restaurant staff, who didn't seem to.

Speaking of which: the continental breakfast consisted in café con leche, orange juice, magdalenas valencianas (some sort of small cakes), ham, bread, jam, cheese and crescents. We went one night for dinner and tried the paella for two, which was very good, although three or four persons could easily have shared it: they were huge portions.

Finally, the location is perfect if you plan on visiting on foot: we didn't take the metro, or the bus or a taxi at all. However, there are various bus stops and metro stations all around. The hotel is a few blocks away from Puerta del Sol, and next to a small plaza, the downside of which being that it does get pretty noisy at night, so you might wanna bring earplugs. As for me, except for the first few nights when we heard a lot of cars honking, I slept perfectly well without earplugs.

An hotel near Puerta del Sol.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 29, 2004

This four star hotel lies not far from Plaza del Sol and so it is quite near Plaza Mayor.

When I stayed there it was a basic accomodation. The breakfast was good even if not special.

Unique Quality: The location.

Directions: This hotel is not far from Sevilla metro stop.

Simple and Comfortable! Superb Locale!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I had a conrner room and it had a huge balcony which overlooked a superb view... all the different avenues, including the one leading to Puerta Del Sol.

One thing about the balcony though.. it isn't a real balcony which we could simply walk out to. It was outside the toilet window and we had to step on the chair to climb through the window! haha

And just across the hotel are the two streets with lots of clubs and pubs!

Directions: Nearest Metro Station is Sevilla.

Great location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 28, 2003

The hotel has an absolutelly great location, at least for those who can sleep when it's really loud around. It's clean and has a huge bathroom (another royal thing in the city).
It doesn't have an air conditioning though and the breakfast is really poor, just croissant and yesterday's roll with a slice of bad ham. There is Starbucks and some other places to choose from all around so you'll survive.

Directions: Just 2 minues walk from Puerta del Sol
