The hotel is located on the outskirts of Seville's old town; it's a rather unique combination of old and modern. The lobby and breakfast areas are in the older part of the building (likely turn of the 19th century) but the rooms and the swimming pool and the inner courtyard are completely modern (nicely done).
Our room was a nicely furnished and well sized suite with a nice modern bathroom. Water pressure in the shower was downright torrential. In all, we were pleasantly surprised by our room and the amenities and quality of the hotel.
The hotel suffers a bit from being located at the wrong end of the old town - you'd need to traverse the entire town to get to the big tourist sites. Instead, we discovered quite a few wonderful, more locally oriented plazas in the vicinity.
A specific faults to mention: The hotel charges extra for the safe key (this seems a relic of the 20th century), we needed to go to the lobby to get a towel for the pool (which is on the roof), and on our day of departure they were 20 minutes late in setting up breakfast (which meant we really had barely any time to enjoy or assess their breakfast buffet).
