“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Very convenient hotel close to the centre of Seville. Fairly easy to navigate to compared to some central hotels and we had booked a car parking space with them as we did not require it at all during our 4 day stay. This worked well - we were met at the door and the staff unloaded the car and took it off to a parking facility somewhere until we checked out of the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful and unfailingly polite. Our room was of a high standard and quiet. We did use the roof top solarium/jacuzzi a couple of times - it was usually quite busy as there are only about 8/10 sunbeds but it was an amazing experience to be in the jacuzzi overlooking seville! The bar service was good, very reasonable prices. We did not use the adjoining restaurant/tapas bar at all, or have breakfast, so cannot comment on the food quality. The central hotel lobby was luxurious and had lots of seats, so good for meeting up with others - though it did have a very strong perfumed air freshener which made me sneeze constantly! That is the only tiny thing I could find against the hotel though, so I'm nitpicking. I would definitely return.

We havent actually stayed at this hotel but we have eaten in the resturant twice and both were superb. The first time we ate in the resturant downstairs but this time we ate in the hotels resturant adjoining the lobby as the downstairs resturant was being refurbished and was only serving cold food options. Downstairs is a lot more informal whereas in the lobby the room is grand and spacious. Both are equaly nice. We were served by rosa who is i have to say one of the most professional waitresses ive ever come across. It was a joy to be served by her she is polite freindly and very professional. My favourite dish is the pulpo which i could eat time and time again served on a bef of exquisit purred potatoes its just delicious and to die fir. Great wines too. Will return next time were in seville and strongly advise people to visit this delightfull resturant.

Nice hotel. Was in renovation mode when we visited but still had a wow factor at the main hall. Design is fabulous. Had some small issues with the room. Like dirty sheets and shower leaking to the toilet area. Breakfast choices were good. Location is excellent. Overall positive experience

We enjoyed staying at the Gran Melia Colon! Excellent hotel stay - great room, very comfortable bed, lovely art work, great restaurant, and amazing breakfast included. Located right in the heart of the historical district, it's a very easy walk to the river, cathedral, bullring, and so many wonderful places. Situated on a quiet, cobbled street - tons of shops, restaurants, flamenco - you'll stay very busy discovering the many wonderful places. Outstanding customer service tops the whole stay. A must stay when you are visiting Sevilla! And, an amazing view of the cathdedral lit at night from the roof spa area.

Room Tip: My guess is all rooms would be equally quiet. Each floor is devoted to an artist with their work dis...

First time in Sevilla and at this hotel. Staff was friendly, helpful and well versed in many languages. The room was clean and good size. Very comfortable bed. The location is great as it is in the heart of the city and within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. Stayed and extra unplanned night.

The hotel was historically for the bull-fighters, so its design and decor reflect the heritage. Don't expect a new-age modern design. But the rooms are highly functional and pleasant if not plush. I'd say everything (breakfast, room, bed, toilet, bath, etc.) are 4-star plus. But as stated in other reviews, the service team is top notch, friendly, knowledgable, efficient, charming, and ... sincere. Time & again they come through to help make the stay At Seville amazing!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. The staff is extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel decor is lovely, much better in person than the photos I had seen. It is in a good central location, walking distance to most sights. We did have a few strange things happen like a subtle beeping noise that we heard approximately every 30 seconds. When we first alerted the front desk they said that was just how it was which I thought was odd but then when we returned from our day it looked like someone had been there trying to fix it. We knew this because there were white foot prints on the carpet and something in the ceiling was left open. I alerted the front desk and they took care of the foot prints right away but the sound never really disappeared. This was a quiet beeping sound that we only really noticed when the room was quiet(like when we were trying to sleep) so it wasn't horrible, just slightly annoying. The breakfast buffet was nice enough. I've had better but I've also had much worse, it was good not amazing. We had lunch outdoors in the restaurant the first day when we arrived and it was very good. Overall it was a very nice and If I was going back to Seville I would stay here again.
