We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early July. The location is ideal, the pedestrian/ historic center at the door, 10 minutes to Cathedral and the Alcazar and about 10 minutes to walk to the river. We walked everywhere from the location.

The hotel is stylish and modern. The rooms are large including a spacious and stylish bathroom. We had an upper floor room that overlooked the rooftop of the church next door. The king size bed was very comfortable, there was no noise at all to be heard at night. There is a small roof top deck that provides decent views of the city ( its one of the tallest buildings in the historic center). The wifi worked well. In general, we found that hotels in Spain seem to carry the same 4 english news tv channels. Its only a problem if you plan to watch alot of tv in your room.

This hotel, in our view, is the must stay location in Seville.

A 5-star hotel should be excellent in every area. The Gran Melia Colon is excellent in most, but it's wifi and television are absolutely terrible and it lacks a true concierge. Those major defects lower it to an average hotel in my opinion.

The hotel's location isn't bad, but isn't excellent either -- at least for a tourist. I would have much preferred to have been closer to the top sights, which are a 10 to 15 minute walk away, but my sense is that this hotel caters primarily to people here on business. The rooms are very spacious and the room amenities are excellent. I am only here for 3 days, but there is room in the two closets for a couple to easily hang a week's worth of clothes. The bathroom has two sinks, a rain shower/bathtub combination and a separate toilet (which includes a bidet). The public areas are beautiful and the hallways to the rooms literally are works of art, with replicas of portions of famous paintings covering the doors to each room. My room was on a floor devoted to Sevillian painter Murillo. The breakfast buffet, which was included in my room rate, is excellent, lacking only something unique to put it over the top.

However, I can't get over the poor wifi and almost unwatchable television. While I have been able to get sporadic wifi reception on my phone (mainly in the public areas) I have not been able to get the internet in my room on my laptop for any of the three days of my stay. The laptop indicates that I have internet access but any attempt to connect to a site times out. Yesterday, the front desk told me that there was a problem with the internet which would be fixed in about 30 minutes. After it was "fixed" they changed the user name and password. As was true prior to the "fix", it works on my phone in the public areas but not on the laptop in my room. There is not a great deal of nightlife in Sevilla which interests me, so it would be nice to be able to relax and watch television after a long day of seeing the sites. However, the number of television stations is very limited and the reception is awful. Watching the BBC last night, the audio went out numerous times and was poor even when working.

The hotel does not have a concierge, which is remarkable for a 5-star hotel. Instead, the front desk staff doubles as concierge. While they appear knowledgeable, the absence of a true concierge is another minus.

Despite it's many excellent features, I simply can't recommend this hotel because of the negatives. My last stay in Sevilla was at the Hotel Amadeus, and despite the much smaller room and lesser amenities, it would be my clear choice if I were to visit Sevilla again.

From start to finish this was a true 5 star experience. But what made the stay special was not the nice sized room, comfortable bed, elegant decor or the fantastic breakfest , it was the service and the staffs genuine willingness to assist is with any request during our stay.

The hotel is situated within walking distance from everything in Sevilla , and the restaurant in the hotel also did not disappoint.

We absolutely loved Sevilla , and we were very happy about the fact we got to experience it based at the gran melia.

Stayed here in 2013 for 3 nights. From arrival to departure, this hotel ticked all the 5,star boxes. Excellent service, very comfortable room, top class breakfast. Could not fault. Added bonus was the location. Within walking distance of all the sights, so no need for any public transportation. Highly recommend

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for two nights during holy Easter week as part of a week trip to Spain . It's location was wonderful and so was the hotel- from modern decor by Philip stark in lobby- rose shaped chairs and sofas , to hallways decorated with paintings of famous artists , the room's decor was modern , spacious and very comfortable , we were on the first floor as I requested a balcony. Breakfast was very elegant and tasty. We also used the spa facilities including excellent massages even though some what highly priced. I will mention two minor down sides, finding the hotel by car was not easy as there are many one way streets and driving through the narrow streets but once arriving the valet service was great. Secondly the first night we ate diner at the highly recommend restaurant in the hotel but found it very mediocre .
