Just returned from a short break in Spain which included 3 nights in the Palacio de Villapanes.
What a lovely hotel.
From the moment of arrival the staff made us feel really welcome. We had an Executive room - very spacious and high quality. The bed was the biggest and most comfortable we'd ever slept in!
My only negative comment was that there was no view (the opening doors led onto a very small area that was buried deep in the building, so only got a shaft of light. Consequently the room was rather dark as the lighting was subdued, and I needed to ask for another light so I could read a book or map. But this was done graciously.
The position is good in a secluded street, but easily accessible to the main sites with a nice stroll. The hotel arranged bike hire one day for us, which was great, and we ventured out of the city to the Roman ruins of Italica at Santiponce.
Before the trip I thought we'd probably try and get breakfast elsewhere as it looked pretty pricey at 20 euros - but we had it on the first day and thought it was so good we went for it on the other days as well. Beautifully done- one of the best breakfast menus I've had.
Don't expect a lively hotel with busy bar, but if you want a very comfortable stay with peace and quiet and delightful staff, then go here.
