Our last stop was Seville and great Alfonso XIII.
We were very excited, not only for arriving to Seville but to experience one of the city's landmarks.
Hotel location is just perfect, strait at the city center, on very beautiful location, surrounded with palm trees, banana trees... The outside look is simply spectacular. We would be very sad if we have booked somewhere else. I am glad we chose this hotel.
The architecture is just perfect. Every detail is carefully chosen, from the doorstep to the roof top. The lobby, beautiful courtyard and San Fernando restaurant where we had pleasure to eat perfect breakfast every day, was just stunning!
We have booked Grand Deluxe room and we were accommodated on 3rd floor with nice pool view.
The room was very specious and perfect in every single way.
Again, I took the opportunity to take a look around the hotel with the hotel staff and, honestly, it doesn't matter which kind of room you choose... every room is beautiful and spotless. Deluxe rooms are smaller in size from the Grand Deluxe and the bathroom is smaller too, so if you prefer space and more comfort, go for the Grand Deluxe room.
Housekeeping is simply perfect, kind and very efficient. Restaurant staff is above professional and made our stay really gorgeous! Special thanks to all restaurant staff for making our mornings very pleasant and relaxing.
Unfortunately, I cannot say all that for the reception staff. They should learn a lot more from their colleagues from hotel's restaurant.
In all my reviews, every time, I write a lot about hotel staff and I have to say that hotels are not only about building experience but people at the first place. I also work in a travel industry, that's why I took this opportunity to write few words about it.
In order to achieve 5*impression, besides perfect architecture and design, the most important is that our first hosts, which reception staff is, create a welcoming feeling, along with the feeling that they take care about every guest at the hotel.
The other thing I would like to mention is lack of free wi fi in rooms. For 21st century standards (doesn't matter which category hotel is) and today's life style, free wi fi is, simply, a must.
All in all, and not to get me wrong with these two last observations, this was really nice experience and we were very happy to have opportunity staying with You!
