“Beautiful, great service but was getting a little worn in places”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Excellent customer service. Wonderful building with great decor. Loved the courtyard patio. The rooms were very cool too- lots of style. But the shower leaked and had made the paint on the walls bubble and the floor was a bit rotten. Shame about this as not what you expect in a modern boutique 5* but could easily be fixed. I just hope they do fix up those small things.

Lovely stay at the AlmaSevilla Palacio de Villapanes. The room was nice, as expected for the quite high price, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Location was also fine, although we would have appreciated a better map if possible to help us navigate Seville's many narrow streets. It was nice to be away from the most touristy area yet within reach of all the sights and some good tapas bars and restaurants. In particular Casa de Pilotes is very close by and we recommend at least one visit to the oldest tapas bar in Spain, Rinconcillo, which is only five minutes' walk from this hotel.
We slightly felt that we were disadvantaged in not being able to use the courtyard garden and roof terrace due to the cold temperatures in November. There was a lovely lounge area but it did not feel warm enough to sit in. We did use the spa area (steam room and sauna) which was all fine.
As a suggestion to the hotel - how about a basket of fruit as an alternative to the 'free minibar'? Noone can get too excited about a couple of bottles of fruit juice and fizzy drinks although it certainly didn't go unappreciated.
Best feature? The extremely comfortable beds.

I recently stayed two nights in this hotel and the room was great. Large bathroom with separate shower and toilet, very comfortable bed. The hotel is in a quiet street only a short walk from shops and restaurants. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

This is a great hotel in a great location, our room overlooked the rear courtyard and was tranquil. The room we had was a good size and there was a fabulous shower. The Spa was good and massage effective in treating sore muscles. Would certainly stay here again when in Seville.

Room Tip: A Deluxe room overlooking the rear courtyard is quiet.

The hotel is situated in an exceptionally quiet area of Seville and is within easy walking distance of restaurants, main sites and good shopping.

They had incredibly comfortable beds, with the softest down duvets and pillows, plus crisp white sheets. One of the most comfortable beds I have stayed in.

Room 134 overlooked the external courtyard on the first floor, with three large windows. It was a very spacious room with high ceilings with beige/mushroom colouring apart from a dark aubergine corduroy curved headboard.
There was a very good shower, but no bath. There was also a mini bar with complimentary fruit juice, water and fizzy drinks, plus an enormous flat screen tv.

Breakfast was delicious, served in the basement (very light and bright) with fresh fruit, yogurts, selection of pastries, yoghurt, cheese, ham, plus small portions of cooked breakfast.

The service was efficient but erring on the slightly impersonal.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room overlooking the outside courtyard as they are lighter

As a frequent traveller, it's genuinely rare to find a hotel that exceeds expectation time and time again! This hotel is excellent in every way. Rooms are spacious, luxurious and well equipped and the service is second to none!! I heartily recommend the hotel and will stay here again on future trips to Seville!

A beautiful hotel. Despite the central location of the hotel our room was very quiet. The staff wonderfully friendly. The room was wonderfully calm and the bed....The single most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
