This was the third stop of a trip we took through Spain in October of 2012. We drove here from Salamanca. The hotel is on what I would call the outskirts of Sevilla, but access to all the things you want to see in the city center is a snap because of the convenient bus route stop only two blocks behind the hotel. We found free parking for our rental car on the street that runs directly behind the hotel. Unfortunately, as is becoming more and more common these days, there was a person who appeared to be homeless who lurked out there and approached us when we parked the car and offered "to watch " our car for us in exchange for money. This seems to be becoming one of the ways that people are being extorted in exchange for not harming our property. In any event I did give in a little to this guy and brought him some food from the hotel breakfast buffet a couple of times during our 3 night stay there.
So, let me tell you more about the hotel. Negatives: The rooms were fairly Spartan and the noise control from people in the hallways was lacking. The walls of the bathroom (between the bathroom and the hotel room), as well as the door, were made of smoked glass. Though this might have been viewed as a neat touch, light and sound from the bathroom passes into the hotel room and therefore using the bathroom at night becomes a shared project in a sense. The exercise room was teeny tiny and not well equipped. On the last day I was there, as we were preparing to check out I noticed that the safe was a little crooked on the shelf in the closet; I pushed it and to my surprise discovered that it was not attached, in any way. The safe only weighed about 20 pounds and I was able to lift it off the shelf . It would have fit into my suitcase. What I am saying is that without the safe being mounted it sure didn't seem very "safe". Positives: The included breakfast was very complete with many selections. I made use of the flat toasters and melted cheese onto bread with ham and had some nice sandwiches that way. The fruit selection was excellent and they had a nice coffee/tea and snack set-up in the bar area in the afternoons. The interior of the hotel was clean and well kept. The area immediately surrounding the hotel was not the best, but I walked around extensively and didn't have a problem of any type.
The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. We were trying to find a particular watch at a particular store and the front desk staff took the time to call the store for us and inquire as to whether or not they had what we were looking for.
I would stay here again.
