Reviewed 4 December 2013

We stayed on our trip thro Spain and Portugal this fall. It was picked by my son and it was indeed a great choice. Its a gem of a hotel in the heart of Seville close to great shopping,the Cathedral and the Alcazar and a short tram ride to Plaza Espanya. The lobby is spacious and you are given individual attention on check in,with a glass of cava. We were upgraded to a suite which was quite spacious,with welcoming fruit tray,water and chocolates. The bathroom was generous with a shower and a tub and twin sinks with mirrors.large his and her closets. Our floor had a religious motif and the doors were painted with figures of saints etc.
The buffet breakfast was very generous with hot and cold food desserts and fruits and in addition one could also order off the menu at no extra cost.
The front desk was very helpful with suggestions,restaurant recommendations and reservations. The manager came around and enquired after us all the time.i would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Seville

Room Tip: For more privacy a room at the front of the building is better as the rooms on the sides faced other...

The staff here are really friendly especially the reception/front of house staff and breakfast staff. We stayed for three nights and loved our time here. The staff make this hotel feel like you are staying with friends! We got great advice from Alexandro (sorry for wrong spelling) about places to eat etc.. He is a wealth of knowledge about Seville and surrounding areas. The location is perfect for exploring all the sights. only a few minutes walk to the cathedral and historic area. The room was fabulous, bed although a little on the firm side was still very comfortable. From all the reviews I read here I was worried about the being able to use the lights in the bedroom so we just asked the lovely girl who showed us to our room to show us how. Turns out it wasn't a big deal and not as complicated as some people find. We found the atmosphere the lights create very relaxing and very romantic! We would definitely recommend this hotel. We also loved the 'hand to heart' gesture all the staff make when they greet you very unique and a lovely touch! Cant wait to go back...

I visited the hotel on business from Tuesday, 26 November to Thursday, 28 November 2013. The only downside for me was the slow checking in process. I waited for almost twenty minutes to be checked in. Other than that it's a clean hotel with a very interesting theme of it's own. Most of the staff are friendly. I would go back, but next time the checking in process would have to be quicker!

My wife and I booked two nights b&b in the Gran Melia Colon Seville last week for our 2nd year wedding anniversary. We were greeted upon arrival by welcoming staff whom took our baggage. Valet took care of our car parking. We then spoke with another gentleman who booked us in whilst he treated us to a glass of Cava, a lovely welcoming touch. My initial impression was of amazement of the interior and spotlessly clean.

Our room was large, spacious and clean. Our bags arrived soon afterwards via the porter. The bathroom was large and light and the bed was fresh and to our liking. We soon left the hotel to explore the city. Upon arrival back at our hotel room we were greeting with a bottle of Cava, roses, strawberries and chocolates, rose petals in our bath tub, and a traditional Spanish fan with a note from management congratulating us on our wedding anniversary, a tremendously romantic and thoughtful gesture from the hotel.

Our both days and nights were very enjoyable. We spoke to alot of the staff from barmen, valet attendants, receptionists, breakfast porters, each and every staff we found very well educated in their duties and always warm and friendly and respectful Without a doubt will be returning to this hotel should we return to Seville - perfect location for city centre.

This hotel is located very centrally in Seville, just a few minutes walk from the art gallery, a few minutes from Plaza Nueva, and about 10 minutes walk from the Cathedral and Alcazar. A great spot for a visit to the city, and an amazing place to stay!

All the staff at the hotel are really friendly and helpful, and always available if you have a question. Rooms are very nice, and the doors have reproductions of famous paintings on them, so you feel like you're opening a secret painting door when you go into the room! There's also information on the paintings available, so you can learn something too if you'd like. Rooms are a good size, and bathrooms excellent. Only one complaint on the whole thing, which was the gym was very small and didn't have much (eg no mats for stretching on, and not much equipment).

I didn't eat dinner in the hotel, so I don't know what that's like, but I did have breakfast. The buffet breakfast wasn't cheap (about 20 euros a head), but was an amazing spread, with really good quality. One of the best hotel breakfasts I've had all year!

It's not the cheapest hotel, but if you can, splurge and stay here anyway, it's worth it!
