Reviewed 31 March 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Ayre in Seville as part of a Globus Tour in July. We were there for two nights and had two rooms for the four of us. The hotel had its pros and cons, but overall we found it to be a little below the expected standard in comparison to other hotels we stayed at on our trip, and probably not a place we would look to stay again.

The hotel is located in a more business-y area of the city, away from the river and the main tourist attractions. It is located quite close to Seville's main train station, the Santa Justa station, where you can get high speed trains to many of the major cities in Spain. The hotel itself is very modern and includes a restaurant, bar, large lobby area, a pool etc.

The rooms themselves were a little less modern than the public areas of the hotel, but they were still clean and well equipped with comfortable beds, a desk, a TV with a variety of local and international channels and a large bathroom. Wi-Fi internet was available and free for tour customers, I’m not sure if there are any charges for private guests.

We had dinner one night at the hotel as well as two breakfasts. The dinner was a buffet meal served in the restaurant and didn't appear to be so well patronised apart from the Globus group, since the meal was included for us. There were some very nice dishes on the buffet, such as their risotto, but the majority of the dishes were fairly ordinary and not very special. One of the big problems we had was that the plates were not very clean and it was a struggle to find a suitably clean plate to use. Thee dessert selection was quite expansive, but it suffered because all the desserts were still frozen and hadn't been given any time to thaw out. Coffee is included with buffets and was from a Nespresso machine, with plenty of pods to choose from. The drinks menu was sufficient and had a variety of beers, wines, non-alcoholic drinks etc to choose from, with reasonable prices.

The breakfast was similar to the dinner in terms of the quality. Plates weren't very clean once again and while alright, there weren’t any truly outstanding items. If you are looking at staying at this hotel I would only take breakfast if it is included free in your package or at a small supplement of no more than a few euros, because honestly my feeling is that it wasn't worth it.

The hotel is located a bit of a distance from the attractions, perhaps 10-15 minutes by car. I'm not sure if it's walkable but given the 40+ Celsius heat we didn't even bother trying! Taxis were plentiful and not very expensive though. Our taxi driver said that the Ayre is a well known hotel because of its proximity to the station so hopefully you should have no problems getting there.

In terms of things that are close and within walking distance to the hotel, there is the train station with a few cafes, a McDonald's, some convenience stores etc, a Burger King directly across the road from the hotel and if you exit the hotel and walk to the right there is a large outlet of the department store chain El Corte Ingles. In the basement of El Corte Ingles is a huge supermarket selling everything you could possibly need for your stay in Seville. I would recommend going there as we did if you need to buy snacks, drinks, travel essentials etc. On the same block as the hotel is an ATM if you need to withdraw money.

Some of the attractions worth visiting in Seville are the Alcazar, the Cathedral (and La Giralda, the cathedral bell tower, which quite uniquely amongst cathedral bell towers we have visited has a ramp to get to the top rather than stairs!), the shopping district next to the cathedral and of course a walk near the river and the Plaza de Toros and Plaza de España are a good idea. On our second night in Seville we went for a Flamenco show at El Patio Sevillano, which was organised by Globus and included the show, dinner and drinks. El Patio Sevillano is apparently one of the premier destinations for flamenco in Seville and there were quite a few private tourists there as well, who could either buy just a show ticket, or a show and drinks/meal package. I enjoyed the experience and would recommend you go for a Flamenco show if you get the chance.

One thing we noticed at the hotel was that it wasn't very busy. On one occasion we forgot our room floor and went to another floor, which was totally dark! They have shut down at least one and possibly more floors of the hotel and are keeping customers on just a few of the lower floors. Whether this is a product of the economic downturn, or the hotel just hasn't been very popular, or if it is only really catering to the group tours these days I'm not sure, but it certainly wasn't a sign of a successful hotel.

Was it horrible? No, and if you’re staying here on a guided tour like we were you’ll be fine. Would I stay there again if I visited Seville on my own? Probably not. If I were to return to Seville I’d probably look for something with a more central location and of a better quality than the Ayre. In summary, unless the Ayre can provide you with good value-for-money, or you value the proximity to the station, I’d probably suggest looking at a few other options before booking in here.

I hope you've found this review useful. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.

Great value, great room, great breakfast
Size of the room is impressive and we got a double as requested not the usual two beds pushed together. There is some road noise due to the hotel's convenient location near the train station and all the bus routes but not anything that would keep me awake. Like the black out curtains, the bath and shower and the free wifi. Lovely breakfast with good coffee, great fruit salad and croissants well worth the extra 12euro.

This hotel provides very good value for it's price. At the downside, it's located some 15min walk from the center of Seville, or you have to take a bus. The hotel is modern and well equipped and there are free fresh apples at the lobby. Rooms are considerably better than what you would expect from the price.

Just back from a four night stay at the Ayre Hotel and have no complaints at all. It was chosen for its proximity to Santa Justa station and therefore the ease of visiting Cordoba and Jerez. Our room on the seventh floor was clean and spacious with comfy beds. The choice at breakfast was excellent and well laid out. Lots of fresh fruit available in addition to breads, pastries and a few hot items such as scrambled eggs and bacon. Overall it was very good value and to be recommended.

Room Tip: High floor rooms better to avoid traffic noise.

Great hotel very close to train station and only 20 mins walk to the old town & attractions. Very good clean, large rooms although heating on it was possible to turn it off & open window so cooler.
On 20C days why do European hotels have heating still on? Had checked price on Internet but when booking in the price was Euros 20 more. Asked for wifi password which they gave me and booked on line and even emailed them the confirmation. Took 10 mins but saves 20 Euros! Plenty of restaurants near by and 2 mins from station.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with window facing inwards no noise

Handy if you need to be lose to Santa juste train station but impersonnal hotel, no special touch. Showers a little bit too old. Breakfast not as good as in most 4stars hotel. Food just all right. Disappointing for Sevilla where hotels are normally exceptional. Staff is efficient and friendly. I tried to go to the gym but not open (should have been). Wifi included and good connexion.

This hotel should be a nice 4 star property. Notice that the key word is "should". The rooms are large and comfy. Nice lobby, bar, business center, and restaurant on site. Easy access to transportation. Several bus lines pass in front of and hotel is directly across the street from the main train station in Seville. The primary complaint that I have is that the walls are paper thin. You can clearly hear conversations in the adjacent room. This was a little surprising for a hotel this modern.
