The hotel is in an excellent location right by the Cathedral and walking distance from all major attractions and things to do in Seville. The room was clean and unique looking with the Arabian hammam influence of the tiles on the walls of the room. The staff was friendly. But the hotel was very noisy during the night. We could hear our neighbors or room upstairs walking, showering, using the bathroom and at times it sounded like there was construction going on in or around the hotel. Not sure what it was but we would wake up several times during the night. For the value and location very worth it but sleeping at night may be a bit troublesome. Take ear plugs and enjoy it.

The Simon hotel is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location with basic amenities. We had a room on the third floor with a small balcony. We loved the balcony as a place to relax and hear the sounds of Seville. The room was basic, with just enough room for two of us. The bathroom was simple yet clean.

The best feature of this hotel is the location. You are within walking distance to the Cathedral, the Alcazar, cafes, and the Santa Cruz Barrio (which is great for tapas and exploring!) There is a small store a couple houses in case you'd like to purchase snacks or water.

As many have stated, the hotel is in a beautiful Andalucian house. Take the stairs, it adds to the ambiance of the house.

Room Tip: If you enjoy the sounds of the local city you are traveling in, request a room on the street side wi...

I and 3 friends began our Andalusian vacation with 2 nights at Hotel Simon. The cost was very reasonable for the space and convenience.

The rooms were clean and of average size for an older urban hotel. But the expansive and lofty common spaces provided an air of elegance. It is confusing why this hotel is listed as a "one-star" facility, when the amenities and decor appear to qualify it for two-to-three stars.

There are elevators, free wi-fi (in the common areas), and plenty of seating for a laptop or spreading a map to plan your day. The staff were consistently pleasant and helpful. Some of the carpets were beginning to show wear, and the upholstered seating, while comfortable, could benefit from updating. But the extensive plants climbed more than two stories to the heights of the internal courtyard, and the Andalusian architecture grab more of your attention than the style of the furnishings.

Breakfast at the hotel costs a few euros extra. Some folks may like the convenience, and although it was palatable, our second morning we wisely chose to eat at a nearby café.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street. There is commerce aplenty stretching into the night.

We had a 4 day break at the Simon Hotel with family (17 of us by the Saturday evening). Unfortunately there was building work at the rear of the hotel where our room was (on the ground floor), so the noise was unbearable in the mornings. Luckily the men didn't work on Saturday or Sunday or it would have spoiled it completely for us. The hotel staff were very helpful though and I think we would return once the works have finished as it is so near to the Cathedral and Palace etc.

My husband and I stayed here with my daughter and her husband and three children.

For an extended family the two rooms we got were very comfortable, well priced and very well located being walking distance to most Sevillean highlights.

The hotel was an elegant converted house in typical Andalusian style with a leafy central courtyard.

I've stayed here twice. This time we were only there for a night which was a good thing as the room was small and the bed tiny - our feet hung over the end (I'm 5ft10, my boyfriend 6ft).
It's a clean and functional hotel, but it is 'no frills' (and the price reflects that).
It is, however, the perfect location - really perfect - I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it on the basis of location and simplicity. Something about it has a certain charm!
