I can't say enough great things about this hotel. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had.
I emailed the hotel for directions a few days before our stay, and they emailed me back promptly with various suggestions. They also confirmed they would have a crib or bed available for our (almost) 3-year-old daughter.
We arrived around 11 pm and were greeted warmly. We were in Room 130--on the third floor, with lots privacy. The room opens out to a busy street with a busy bar below, but when we closed the windows it was pretty quiet. If you are sensitive to noise and need the windows open then Room 130 is not for you. It was fine for us. And it was especially good one evening during Holy Week when we could watch the procession down the street from our balcony.
The next morning, the staff asked if the bed for our daughter was ok and expressed genuine concern for our happiness. I said that a crib/pack-and-play might be better. They promptly gave us one. The next day they even removed the extra bed in the room so we would have more space.
I then asked about options for going to Tarifa, as we wanted to visit Tangier for the day. (As a side note, it's possible to do so, but you need to rent a car the night before, wake up around 5:30 to make the 2 hour 15 minute drive, and then take the 9 am boat.) The manager offered to call a rental car company for us to find out the details. As we did not return to the hotel until later that evening, the staff on duty called him at his home so that he could relay the information to us. How's that for amazing service!
They were great for us, and for our daughter, even giving her a little present when we left.
The location is also perfect--about 2 blocks from the Cathedral, walking distance to everything. Again, if noise is an issue, that's a slight problem in Room 130, but I'm sure there are rooms that are not right on the street.
This was one of the best experiences I have had a hotel. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay in Sevilla!
