Good: Location is right in the middle of everything; lots of places to sit at the hotel (piano bar, courtyards, patios); great pool deck

Bad: Rooms and hotel are obviously old and in need of upkeep; dead bugs and abundant ants in room; small room; 2 unavoidable flights of stairs to get to room; safe too small for a laptop

Wifi: free, connection too weak and intermittent to access in room, even when used close to router, connection was still inconsistent

Bed: double bed, very squeaky, room was reasonably quiet

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in the middle of our stay in Spain. First off are the positives, the hotel was in a nice location in the middle of the older area of Seville. When we were checked in, a bellhop took all of our bags and lead us to our room. We were, at first, very impressed with that level of service. We walked through beautiful, rustic courtyards which seemed like they would be great places to have an afternoon drink or play a game of cards. After making our way to the elevator we realized that the bellhop escorted us likely because we would have gotten lost without him (and we did get lost a few times in the hotel during our stay).

The bellhop then tells us that our hotel is on the first floor so we take an elevator to the first floor (ground floor was zero). When we get out of the elevator, he walks us up one flight of stairs where the door to our hotel room is located. When he opens the door we see that there is another flight of stairs to get into the room itself. We felt that the staff should have asked us if we would mind walking 30+ stairs to get to our room, at the very least. We mentioned this to the maid, and she did say that our room had the most stairs to walk in the entire hotel.

Once inside the room, the decor is very floral and traditional. The bed is a very squeaky double bed, but this is probably because its the biggest bed that could reasonably fit in such a tiny room. When we go into the bathroom, there are several dead moths on the floor surrounded by a family of ants. When we called the front desk about this, it took over an hour for them to send someone to clean up.

Also, although they advertise as having free wifi - we didn't get any service in our room. Even in the sitting area the service was weak.

I seriously thought about trying to find us another hotel and leaving after we walked in. I stuck it out but I certainly wouldn't do it again and I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

We spent three nights here and were very satisfied. The service is friendly and speeks english (which is very helpful if you only speak a little spanish ...).
Also we liked our rooms, but you have to like medival style to enjoy it. It also was clean, not like other reviews say. Only the bath tub was an older one, but as long as you only had a shower you could stand it. What was annoying were guest that went to there room in the middle of the night (like after 23) and didn·t try to be quiet - but that is no fault of the hotel. To get to the different rooms you have to go trough a tunnel, which we found a amusing but not annoying. I think this depends on what you like and dislike.
The breakfast also was very good, you could choose from a buffet but also from a menu (which was in spanish, english, french and -a very funny- german).
All in all it was comfortable stay and we would come to this hotel again.

We loved this hotel. It was quirky and individual but still very clean, with good service and a great location. The breakfast was excellent. The piano bar was a bit dull but who cares with lots of great night life a few steps away. Definately made the trip to Seville special.

The place is just so unique that one must stay there once to get the atmosphere. Once you have been there and have had the experience of staying there than you don´t need to be there again. The hotel is built of multiple court yards , very spanish in its structure of course, and each few rooms share a beautiful court full with flowers and natural light, a delightful place to rest after a long day of touring wonderful Seville. Ask for a room with a window, like we did, and you will be able to have such fresh air of the patio. The public areas are beautiful and full with atmosphere as well as the lounge area were there is live piano every eve. No need to have there breakfast as it is much too expensive. Things I didn´ like are: 1. the staff is not friendly. very cold unlike other places we have visited. 2. they are very cheap on replacing used items in the bath. for example, they did not replace the body lotion once you have used it... 3. once we entered the room there was dead bug and paper on the floor of previous visitors...

As this is in the Santa Cruz area very, very close to the cathedral and Reales Alcazar, it is best to arrive by taxi. We drove, had difficulty finding it but there is a car park 100 metres away and the hotel and location more than made up for the difficulty finding it. It is like living in history but with all modern top quality conveniences. All the patios, the underground passageways and the brilliant interior design could have made it a historic sight in its own right. We spent three nights there and walked everywhere from the hotel. The dinner is gastronomic as is the breakfast. That has to be one of the most amazing we have ever enjoyed in many upmarket hotels. The breakfast room itself is in a contrasting modern design - quite superbly done. The only downside would have to be the minute shower in our room.

we stayed at this hotel at the suggestion of a friend. Its a very unusual place. I believe that it is a combination of several buildings in the neighborhood that must have been purchased over time and connected. We were located on the first floor, but it took a couple of minutes to walk through a series of courtyards until we reached our room. It was a little small, but well-appointed. Smallish bathroom, but definitely serviceable and clean. The place is really lovely, and quiet. Very comfortable. Our only issue was that my wife had knee surgery recently, so it was a little bit more walking to get to the room, and although it was on the first floor, there were a number of stairs to negotiate; but for that, it really is a nice hotel in a great location.
