I was in Seville for business reasons, and I really didn't have a choice of hotel; the reservation was made for me. I can see why they picked this hotel because it's in the middle of everything. It's basically a 10 minute walk to every major tourist attraction, and it was a 10 minute walk from where I had to be. So if you want convenience, this is the place to stay. I was in Seville at a weird time because preparations for Semana Santa were happening the entire time I was there, and the noise was enormous, way into the wee hours of the morning. Now, Spain is a noisy country, but this was kind of over the top. Also, the week was a hot one, but the hotel doesn't turn on the air conditioning until June! June!!! In incredibly hot Seville!! So, the only way to not boil was to open the window, but it was incredibly noisy, so you can see the dilemma. I didn't have a single good night's sleep there for 5 nights.
They had a buffet breakfast that was included in my reservation, and it was kind of sad. I didn't expect an American style buffet, but this one was meager: some ham (of course), some cheese, and then a bunch of store-bought stuff. If your reservation doesn't include this, don't get it. It's also really expensive, like 14 euros per day, and you can eat for a third of that at any cafe in Seville, and there are a ton of them. Then when I checked out, reception told me that breakfast was not included, so they made me pay. Luckily, I'll be reimbursed, but it was really annoying.
Reception itself was nothing to speak about. Typically Spanish, they looked completely put out when I asked them anything, but anything they told me was completely correct.
So I wouldn't stay here again unless I had to. There are a number of really nice hotels in Seville. I've been there before, and I've stayed at great places. This was not one of them.
