A mixed bag... Rooms are refurbished and comfy in a 3-4 star way. Pool was closed for repairs and wasn't scheduled to open before June 1, which was sent shame given the website's great photo (what I expected... Sadly not). Spa closed three months ago, not expected to reopen. Location Ok but a bit far from the sights and centre. Saving grace is the staff, who were all friendly and helpful--seems to be a Melia signature trait. Needs a facelift...

Spent 4 nights here with 3 other couples. Booked early and fantastic value for what we paid. Does not look too good outside but inside is very smart. Great rooms with views over city. Breakfast one of the best we have had anywhere. A 20 minute walk to the centre. Also tram to centre is close by. Would certainly stay there again. Staff all very helpful. Has an outside pool sadly shut for retiling, but we still cooled off in the children's pool!

We stayed here for 4 nights in May and loved it. The check in was very efficient and the room was spotless. We had a double room with a bath, shower and his and hers sinks. The only gripe we had was that the shower wasn't very powerful, just trickled out but there was another shower in the bath tub that we used instead. Some lovely little Melia touches in the room, bath, shower gels etc. We would also have liked to have had a kettle in the room.

The lobby was stunning with a funky lit bar and restaurant. The hotel itself is about a 15 minute walk to the main cathedral, but as we are in our 20's this didn't bother us too much. There are a few nice restaurants along the way and the hotel is situated next to the Plaza Espana which makes a stunning walk in the evening (we were lucky to have a 20 piece band practicing one evening, very relaxing!). There is also a beautiful park next door with a couple of lovely large buildings to take a look at, very well maintained grounds.

Would recommend this hotel to everyone that doesn't mind a nice stroll to get to the main cathedral (touristy area). There is also a lovely restaurant across the road that does delicious cod and pork!

Melia Sevilla is a good hotel and is at a walking distance from most attractions in Sevilla. The rooms were alright, though the wifi was quite erratic. Given the location, the view from most rooms isn't particularly scenic. The albufera restaurant is fantastic, and a must visit for the paela. A decent hotel overall.

We booked online (we stayed for 4 nights) and hadn't realised quite how big and corporate this hotel would be - so it wasn't really to our taste. It was also slightly further away from the main centre than we'd appreciated - although there is a tram stop about 5 minutes walk away. That said, our room was very comfortable indeed - spacious, excellent bathroom, plenty of cupboard space and a really comfortable bed. We had room only so didn't try the breakfast - for that, we just walked into town and found some reasonable places to eat (Cristina & Co - café opposite the old tobacco factory / now university was excellent). Given the choice, we wouldn't stay here again as we discovered some much more promising-looking hotels on our wandering around town.

Room Tip: We requested a 'quiet' room and got one that was set back a bit from the main road. You coul...

The hotel is near the downtown area, therefore is a good location if you want to visit the monuments of Sevilla. However, the hotel is quite dirty and the service not very polite. The building is huge, but quite old, the hall is updated but the rest of the building needs some restyling.
In my room I found hair and the wc was dirty. Besides in the hallways to get to my room there were left overs of room service left on the floor for a whole day. It was quite disgusting and definitely not something you expect from a four star hotel. When I complained the answer was cold and impolite. I think you can find much better hotels in the downtown areas, with Spanish flavor and clean rooms.

When I first arrived the hotel seemed very nice and the room was spacious and stylish. However, as my days visiting the hotel went by, the experience became worse and worse. The staff seemed very confused and slow. The room amenities didnt work properly (poor air con and shower drain was clogged so the water overflowed to the floors). I explained both issues to the staff and neither was resolved. The gym, pool and spa were also closed which was disappointing. This would have been nice to know before booking. The room was very noisey from other rooms and the outside hallway traffic. The breakfast was nice and the staff there friendly, but that was about it. The location was also very good. I am coming back to Seville in a few weeks with my wife and unfotunately will not be staying here again.
