Reviewed 11 October 2012

This is a great location for an overnight before flying out of Seville Airport and maybe an evening in Seville before departing. Secure parking at no extra charge was the deciding factor with our rental car, along with the good reviews which we found were generally accurate. Where we made a mistake was is thinking this was a good base for a three night visit to Seville. Yes, there is nearby, a very regular at approx every 10/15 minutes bus route No 27 into Seville, however it takes from 30 to 50 minutes a trip and is frequently standing room only. We ended up going in and out of the city twice a day to visit the attractions and later to eat out, (melting in the heat to return to BR and have shower, and go back in for some of the best food we have ever had), as a result we lost a lot of time in a hot and very cramped bus. Some minor irritations, no kettle, bottle opener and no anti slip mat in the shower/bath. I

Seville was experiencing a typical heat wave during our stay. Up to 40 degrees. Luckily the apartments were well air conditioned and the swimming pool (noon-3pm and 5pm to 9pm) was a real relief. The apartments are quite comfortable as described in other reviews.

The bus 28 leaves from behind the apartments, past the train station and into the city centre/Prado/University area to connect with tram and airport bus.That bus is uncrowded, so you will get a seat. Bus 27 goes from near to the Congressos Hotel bus stop to the centre of the old part of town, but it is quite crowded with passengers. There is a big Mercadona supermarket near to the bus 27 bus stop. There is no store conveniently nearby to buy a "tarjeta multiviaje", the multi trip bus card. You can buy that at the Tussam bus office at the Prado bus/tram interchange on weekdays. Then travel is cheap and easy.

Most of the customers at the apartments are Spanish families and couples.The apartments are cleaned daily, and if you need any utensils, just ask and they will find what you need. By the way, it is free to go into the Cathedral Sunday morning.

We had a very spacious and clean room; kitchen, living & dining area and large bathroom and bedroom. It was close to the bus stop for town and a McDonalds. The kitchen was nice but no teapot or coffeemaker, however we bought instant and used the microwave and made do. There is a grocery close by. It has free secured parking with a deposit for the key. It was mostly very quiet except we had a young couple next door and they had a large party one night. Very good value for the price and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Perhaps rooms facing the front office would be quieter, not the parking area.

This place is clean, fresh, offers spacious rooms, secure and ample parking for a low price in a quite location. The staff were useful and friendly. A downside was a cumbersome and slow free WiFi. It took me around 1 hr to connect initially and then 10-20 min every time. Ended up using other hotspots.

The first thing that drove me to pick bib ramblas was the price. Many of the places to stay in Sevilla are outrageously expensive since they're close to many of the places you want to visit. This makes finding affordable places to stay difficult--until now.
Bib ramblas was in Zona Este on the outskirts of the city. This makes it a short and cheap trip to/from the airport. There is a local bus (#27) stop next to the hotel which takes you all the way to the city centre (20 min bus drive).
I definitely recommend this place because it's easy on the wallet, and when you get tired of getting ripped off from the tourist trap restaurants serving crappy food, you can actually eat a some authentic restaurants where the locals eat for some delicious affordable meals in the neighbourhood nearby the hotel.
The hotel was safe, in a safe neighbourhood. There were elevators available and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. The rooms are ok. They're about 3-4 star quality but I would definitely stay here again. The room was huge and came with a kitchen. This place made my stay a whole lot more relaxing.
I would recommend it for families, and college kids alike on a budget. There were several restaurants close by which were open late too.
For the younger crowd there was some late night stuff nearby but I didn't explore them too much. Again there's a bus stop so I don't think distance would be a problem anyways if you want to get drunk at a club in the centre.
I will stay here again.

Great place to stay, very clean and comfortable with all the facilities mentioned in the guide such as parking, kitchen, internet etc (although the pool was drained when we were there in May).
It can be a bit awkward to find so make sure you get a good map printed before setting off.
Friendly staff on reception.
The location was not as bad as it seems, as there is a cheap and easy bus route into the City Centre just out on the main road, so we didn't end up using the car we had very much while there.
Managed to book this place for just 55 Euro a night which was excellent value, so keep your eyes open for deals.
