Our best hotel experiences in Spain were at the two Casa 1800 hotels in Seville and Granada.
From the standpoint of a tourist in Seville, the Casa 1800 in Seville is as close to perfect as there probably is.
The hotel is a lovingly restored 19th century mansion. Often you hear the turn of phrase, "clean for an old building." Casa 1800 Seville is clean for a new building, and is aesthetically beautiful. We didn't sight-see as much as we could have as we just felt like sitting in our courtyard, enjoying our surroundings and having tea (which is free, and which is a misnomer in Casa 1800 as tea involves an open fridge with juice, sparkling sodas, still and sparkling water, milk, as well as hot drinks such as coffee, tea and chocolates, and also platters of fruits and food (we didn't feel like eating dinner after tea)).
The location of the hotel is perfect. It is a 2 minute walk from the Cathedral, a 5 minute walk from the Alcazar, and is right on the edge of the jewish quarter. Without exaggeration, I have never been more happy in all my travels about the location of my hotel, than in relation to Casa 1800 Seville. We single out for special mention, the tapas bar that is right outside the front door of the hotel (we were somewhat guarded when recommended to go to the tapas bar right outside the hotel's front door, but later realized that that was where all the locals went to hide from the tourists, and the food was great).
Rooms are a little on the small side, but are very well appointed, spotlessly clean, and are as charmingly fitted out as the rest of the hotel.
Last and best mention is reserved for the staff. They are impossibly polite, knowledgeable and helpful. We had just come from Madrid where we had been at the receiving end of the professional if somewhat indifferent treatment that is common among business hotels, and the lovely ladies at the front desk of Casa 1800 was a refreshing change to all of that.
Places have vibes, and the vibe that Casa 1800 exudes is one of warm, almost dizzy, charm and comfort. Go and see, you won't be sorry.
