Hotel Patio de las Cruces
Ranked #11 of 72 Seville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 March 2013

This tiny hotel is located just 5 minutes walking from the cathedral. The guys at reception are wonderful and very helpful (they can give you good advice where to park the car if you are driving and I advice to follow it, we didn’t and we pay more for parking than hotel - everywhere in Seville parking are crazy expensive). We were a bit unlucky because they were renovating the patio so we could really enjoy it but it looks wonderful.
24 hours reception
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Patio de las Cruces is brilliantly located: in the beautiful Santa Cruz neighbourhood; close to restaurants, bars, gardens, newsagents, supermarkets, even a taxi stand; 5-min walk from the Cathedral, the Alcazar and other places of interest as well as the shopping centre of the city; 20-min walk from Guadalquivir River and Triana (the neighbourhood that offers more authentic Flamenco dance than the centre); the building is beautiful, a traditional Andalucian house with interior patio and baskets of hanging flowers and the staff are friendly and helpful. On the negative side, the rooms are small and the ground floor rooms are very dark. The matresses are way past their best and the bathroom is tiny (no hairdryer but available at reception). However, the worst was the lack of central heating. There is air conditioning but no remote control for it! It´s regulated by the hotel and works by slotting in your key-card. This means that when you enter at night the room is frozen (we visited in February) and you have to leave the air on all night - or get up sweating at 5 in the morning to turn it off... It´s a real spoiler especially if you don´t like waking up with a dry throat. We paid 40euro per night, which was about right for what it offered, though the price list indicated that the same room could cost up to 120euro depending on the season.

Room Tip: Second-floor rooms have more natural light and less street noise.

We stayed in Sevilla for 3 nights. We picked the hotel because it was close to a main road, but also close to the historical center. The hotel is located in the Judéria, the old Jewish Quarter, which is mainly a pedestrian-only zone, so no noisy scooters and cars passing by at night! The hotel manager is very friendly, although his English is not very good (just like most Spaniards). The hotel building is styled in the typical old Moorish way, with a patio at the center. The room was quite small, and the shower was not very practical, but otherwise we had no complaints (except for the fact that we had two separate beds). The hotel does not serve breakfast, but in the neighbourhood there are a lot of places where you can have breakfast like the locals do (ask for "tostada con mantequilla y marmelade" and a "caffe con lecche").

Parking tip! We went by car, but this is not recommended as Seville is very car-unfriendly (and the traffic is crazy): parking is almost impossible, and if you do find a spot, it is really expensive. Fortunately, we asked some locals where we could park, and they pointed us to a huge open-air parking outside of the city center. The price was only 0,80 euros per day! (As compared to more than 20 euros per day in the city center.) This location is appareantly unknown to even the hotel owners in Seville, because the manager did not tell us about it. So this is a big parking tip for everybody who wishes to go to Seville by car: go to Glorieta de Carlos Cano (near Parque De Los Principes) for cheap long-term parking! From there, you can take the subway to the city center.

So - this place is in the middle of it all. Seville is not a driving city - or a bus city, or a train city - you are stuck on your feet if you want a great experience. If you stay here, you are in the middle of everything. By day - this place is not impressive - by night - your are in the middle of night life paradise. Everything comes alive around 7pm. It has a great staff. It is secure (although it may not seem so at first). The rooms are small, the beds are old, the blankets are rough - BUT - again - it is in the middle of everything and a clean and secure place. Good budget place for sure.

Location - 5
Room - 2

We give it a 3.5

From the minute you walk up the small cobble street into a lovely little square you know you've found a little treasure, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are smallish, but has everything you need. It's basic but done well!!! It's so quant, you really are in the middle of the old Seville, it's lovely. They clean the rooms daily, and your located right in the heart of some fantastic restaurants and bars, I would recommend this to anyone.

I arrived here in the midst of an extended trip to Spain, and although I have found almost the whole country friendly and accommodating, that was not the case here. Usually in a two star hotel something minor is wrong, but I can live with it; in this case, many minor problems added up to an unpleasant stay. This hotel apparently was an actual outdoor patio at some point, and the door to each room leads to this central patio area. The roof is positioned independently above the central patio, rather than attaching to/extending all the way to the edges of the outer walls. Because of this gap, I could not unlock the door to my room without walking up slippery steps and getting rained on. The room was extremely small- there was nowhere to move once I got my suitcase up the steps outside my door and into the room. There was no light bulb in the reading light. The television, or maybe it was the remote, did not work. The wifi didn’t work either, and “shrug, sometimes it doesn’t work, use our one desktop computer for everyone” isn’t good enough if you’ve advertised wifi. The sheets were clean, but they were so thin I poked a hole in them with my finger by accident. Two large cleaning carts were left in the middle of the hallway for more than 24 hours. A bright spot was that there was an elevator, but overall I was happy when my stay here was over.

Advisable to take a cab from train station (around 9€). Good location, minutes from alcazar, cathedral etc by foot. Plenty of food choices nearby.

Room- we had the room on the 2nd floor away from the street. Hence, not as noisy and shower was good with hot water. Lift is available as well. Wifi worked well. Good choice for a short stay.
