Hotel Don Paco
Ranked #74 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We spent 3 nights at the Don Paco during a tour of the area in April 2014, and found it to be in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the Mushrooms, the same to the old town and roughly 15 mins to cathedral. Supermarket, bars, cafes, restaurants and Tabac shop close by.
The rooms were of a decent size for a city hotel and everything was clean and modern, fridge and safe deposit box free of charge and also free wifi. Bar area comfy and reasonable prices.
The swimming pool on the roof was an excellent facility will sunbeds and seating area available, free pool towels available from reception, although I can't understand why with temperature in the mid 30's and pool area busy the pool bar was shut and vending machine out of order, which meant anyone requiring a drink or snack had to go down 6 floors to the bar
Breakfast had a good choice of food, however as the hotel appeared very busy the experience was chaotic especially the hot drink machines could not cope with the volume of people.
That apart we had a very enjoyable stay comfy beds and a good nights sleep , we would definitely stay again if we were in the area

Room Tip: Check pool bar is open if not get a picnic from supermarket next door.

The hotel is situated on the edge of the Old Town on one of Seville’s many squares. The sparkling reception area was always well attended and the smart looking staff spoke perfect English. There was free use of a computer in a little room (the man told me how to get the @ character!).
Our room was a trifle small – the table wasn’t big enough – but it was well-appointed and comfortable. The air conditioning worked just fine and the safe was free too (some hotels charge). The room had a telephone and plenty of spare bed linen and pillows. But we would have preferred a kettle and a teabag instead of the useless bidet. We were forewarned that the keycards for the rooms were a bit dodgy. Ours worked fine until the last day when it packed up and we had to get another one – no problem. We gave up trying to find an English TV channel even though we were assured there was one.
The bathroom was superb especially the shower which was almost a tiny room. It also had a handle secured to the wall. Every possible toiletry was provided.
There was a swimming pool on the roof and a bar although we never found it open. The bar lounge was comfortable and the barman was efficient although a smile wouldn’t do him any harm.
In the restaurant the evening buffet was splendido – never had better! We were there three nights as part of a tour and the menu changed each time – 5-star food and you could eat as much as you want. It cost €16 each and the house wine was only €7 – the cheapest we’ve ever had.
The breakfast buffet had everything you could possibly want although the bacon was awful – uneatable! We enjoyed our stay in this hotel – everything that really mattered was perfect.
Tour Tip! You don’t have to queue for the cathedral entrance. You can buy tickets at the Salvador Church nearby – then go to the front of the line.
A warning! The hotel is a 15-min walk to the centre of Seville. Beware of straying into the old town. People have wandered into the narrow streets and never been seen again!

Hotel Don Paco is located near the center of Seville. You still have to walk about ten minutes to the cathedral and the palace. Just in front of the hotel, across the little "square" you have a nice tapas restaurant called Catalina Casa de Comidas, which is number 6 in the list of best restaurants in Sevilla.

The hotel has nice rooms (with very good wifi!!), although a bit somber and the beds are a bit stiff. On the 5th level there is an awesome roof, with a pool and a terrace, where you can relax after a day sightseeing and shopping. The view from the roof is also very cool.

Eventhough the hotel has a lot of groups visiting (we saw almost two buses everyday), we didn't have any nuisance.

All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel to everybody if you have no back problems!

Hotel Don Paco is very popular with group tours. We were an English group living in Spain, and there were other English, German, French and Japanese groups staying at the hotel. The room was good, but the wardrobe was ridiculously small. Everything was very clean.
The buffet offered a wide selection of food, both at dinner and breakfast, although at dinner it was not very hot (microwave available), however, at breakfast the freshly fried eggs were a delight.
In my opinion, the hotel is not in the best location, as it is some way from the Plaza de Espagne, the Maria Louisa Park, the Cathedral and the Real Alcazar, but the old town is within walking distance.
We did not realise the hotel had a roof top pool, which looked very inviting. The views from the roof were great.
As we were a group, the hotel was fine, but I am not sure I would enjoying staying here on a couples basis.

The rooftop pool in this hotel is wonderful with great views across Seville. The rooms are pretty basic, but clean and a good size. The staff were very helpful.

My only slight criticism is that the pool top bar was not open. It was very hot and I would have preferred to get a drink there, rather than going down to the bar on the ground floor.

We stayed here for three nights on the Classical Spain tour with Riviera. We too experienced noise at night from the bar opposite the back of the hotel, but I suspect this is unavoidable in a city centre hotel. The room was clean and comfortable for the little use we made of it - we were only in it at night - and the buffet breakfast was plentiful and good, although a bit chaotic because of the L-shaped dining room. The best part of the hotel for us was the rooftop pool with fantastic views over the roofscape of Seville, watching the sun go down and listening to the swifts screaming overhead. A big bonus was the free-to-use safe with a key-pad lock - no key to lose, no deposit to forfeit! The walk into the centre of Seville was 15-20 minutes, which we found more than reasonable.

We stayed at Don paco for three nights on our Classical Spain tour with Riviera Travel . Location was fine within walking distance of the centre of Seville. The rooms were rather small and the beds not very comfortable but our main problem was the noise going on all through the night in what seemed like in the ally below our room as the windows were not very well fitted it seemed like they were open and let all the noise in. Breakfast was good with hot and cold food plenty of cereals etc but not very nice coffee .Staff were very helpful and pleasant.
