Would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel to anybody. This is an 18th century private mansion of a Marques which has been restored to become a stunning hotel. Beautiful building, lovely relaxing bedrooms with all comforts. It has wonderfully relaxing soft plush bedding and towels, a king size comfy bed, amazing shower (rain shower, jets and hand held) in a prettily tiled wet room. The minibar is free and replaced daily and unlike other reviews we experienced no problems with it being reflilled. There is a turn down service every evening with lovely chocolates given!
The decor in the hotel and bedrooms is beautifully traditional but modern all at once, something the Spanish are so good at! Everything in this hotel has attention to aesthetics.
Didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on that as we prefer to explore the numerous tapas restaurants and cafes around to experience local life.
The staff are professional and friendly and speak fluent English and are very helpful.
The location of the hotel is perfect, lovely and quiet but a short walk to the beautiful old town of Seville.
I have travelled all over the world and am relatively fussy but I really enjoyed this hotel and lovely Seville.
P.S. writing my review from the hotel using the free wifi!
