“lovely hotel-muy bien!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2011

We were a party of five (over 50s ) staying for five days at the end of October. We arrived 2 hours early for check-in but two of our three rooms were ready and we were allowed to go straight up. Staff offered to look after our bags while we went exploring so our check-in experience was pleasant and straightforward.
All our rooms were well presented ,spotless and contained all we required- including the tea/coffee facilities we Brits find so welcome. Our room was very spacious ( i think it was a superior room) but we were a little concerned it was too near the stairs/lift. However, there was no problem with noise at all and indeed the hotel overall had a nice quiet ambience which suited us.
Breakfast was a pleasant experience with a good range of hot and cold food available in nice surroundings. However it is quite expensive unless part of an all-in package.
The lobby and lounge areas are spacious and great for relaxing or meeting up in.
Staff were pleasant and efficient, perhaps more ' professional' than chatty.

Seville itself is a lovely, friendly city--there is a nice atmosphere and we never felt too pressured into doing things (tour bus, carriage ride , boat trip etc).
The Hotel is within walking distance of the centre --10mins or so, but a bit longer if you go down to the river and walk along past the bull ring, the opera house and the Golden Tower.
we quite enjoyed wandering down the narrow streets and seeing where we ended up--a good street map is required if you really need to find your destination quickly, but the signposts are quite good for the main tourist attractions.
As regards the attractions themselves, well we really enjoyed all the obvious ones, particularly the Alcazar. The Casa Pilatos was a little disappointng as was the bull-ring tour and the tourist bus doesn't have enough stops to be really a 'hop-on, hop off ' experience. Our friends enjoyed the horse drawn carriage ride around the Plaza de Espana and the Maria Luisa Park and we were all impressed with the grandeur of the church of San Salvador.

We stumbled upon a bar near the University (the old tobacco factory) where there was flamenco taking place, think it was called La Flamenquita. We were able to sit near the back and watch by ordering some reasonably priced drinks. The performers were on for about 10 mins then had a break and came back to do some more,with a little audience participation at times. It was good to see but beware-- we ordered some snacks to go with our drinks but the price was extortionate! So much for a 'free ' show! If you go stick to the drinks only.

There are bars and eating places aplenty ,which actually makes it quite difficult to choose where to eat so it's a bit hit and miss, especially if you want to try tapas. Try and get some recommendations before you go. We had been given a few and the best of all for tapas was Los Coloniales in the Plaza de Cristo Burgos---only limited space outside, not much English spoken but the best for quality and value. The smallest portion(tapa) was sufficient if you are trying 2 or 3 choices. Try the solomillo with a whisky sauce!
The cafe attached to the hotel (La Leyenda) served good tapas at a reasonable price and was also a great place for a nightcap before bed.


Overall we really enjoyed our stay and can heartily recommend both the hotel Becquer and Seville itself for a very pleasant city break.

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst exploring Seville. Hotel is in good location for this and our taxi driver from the station (9 euros - 10 mins) had no trouble finding it at all. Room was good. Faced onto main street but we were not disturbed by noise at all. It wasn't warm enough to use the pool, but it looked lovely up there. Great views. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. Would recommend and would certainly stay here again on next visit to Seville.

We spent three nights here in mid-October. We arrived at 11am, and as expected, our room was not ready. The front desk staff held the bags in a side room. When we returned at 3pm, our bags had already been delivered to our room. That's a nice touch!

We appreciated the cleanliness of the room and the LCD HD television. English language channels were limited to the standard choices in Europe.

A bar connected to the hotel provided a convenient place to have a late night drink.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral. The beautiful bridge to the Triana neighborhood was a five minute stroll.

The rooftop pool is small, but is complete with beautiful views.

If you desire American fast food, a Dominos, Burger King and KFC are all within a 3 minute walk of Becquer Hotel.

We got a good price and would stay here again.

Hotel Becquer, occupys an old palace-house in the centre of Seville. The rooms are decorated in good taste, the colours on the walls and ceilings are super and there is an air of sophistication in the building, with Renaissance grilles at the reception counter. The staff is efficient and friendly. The public areas are finely decorated. We didn´t have time to visit the spa.
We didn´t have breakfast in the restaurant, it being a bit pricey, but the adjoinig cafe served fine breakfasts for a few euros.
The rooftop pool was a bit small, but in October heat(?) very handy.
The tapas-bar cafe served excellent food and the quality/price relation was good.
All in all I can honestly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a good hotel.

We spent two nights here in October. Location is good, about 10-15 minutes easy walk to the Cathedral. The hotel is relatively quiet if the windows are shut. Unfortunately, the AC did not want to work, so we had to leave the windows open. We could hear customers at a nearby restaurants till at leas 3:30 in the a.m.!
The staff was helpful, all in all a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Lots of nice cheap breakfast places nearby.

We spent 4 nights at the Becquer and were very pleased with our choice. The location is excellent - 5 minitues walk to the shopping area and 5 minutes in the opposite direction to the Triana bridge over the river. The walk to the cathedral takes about 10 minutes. Reception was very quick and we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. In particular they guided us to the riverside restaurants and local bars. We did not have breakfast as it was a bit pricey but had coffee and toast every morning in the adjoining cafe for 2.50 euros per person. Alternatively there is a lovely deli a couple of doors away which serves simple breakfast and is very competitively priced.Our room was on the 3rd floor facing the inner courtyard and was extremely quiet and clean. It was a bit souless and would not be described as luxourious but had everything we needed: safe depost, comfortable beds, air con, mini bar etc. We really appreciated the rooftop pool (though the water was a bit chilly in October!) and the sunbeds. I would definately recommend this hotel for a short break

Room Tip: Chose an inner facing room Try the hotel cafe for drinks, snacks etc

Staff very pleasant. Hotel is in a great location, and breakfast is average . But our sleep was disturbed every night due to constant noise on the corridors and we could hear the household staff cleaning and banging doors very early in the mornings.. The bed was very old with a rock hard mattress .. Would not recommend this hotel to anybody.. Very poor quality overall.
