Hotel Novotel Sevilla
Ranked #71 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed 8 May 2010

We spent two nights at the Novotel Seville in April. It is a typical Accor chain hotel in that you know what you are going to get and the standards are good. The hotel is outside the perimeter of the old city and the main sites. The location and the onsite parking garage make it very suitable for those coming by car and hotel guests benefit from a discounted daily parking fee.. Nevertheless access to the historical area of the city is very good since the hotel is within short walking distance of the new and convenient Seville metro system. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was large and well though blandly appointed. The bathroom was very clean and offered the usual amenities. A problem with the in room safe, left locked by the previous customer, was solved immediately.
The major disappointment was breakfast. Guests may choose between a continental and a full buffet breakfast. In both cases the choice and quality of the items available was limited and far from enjoyable. At around 14 euros, this makes the buffet breakfast not very good value for money. Those not eating at the hotel can get breakfast at cafes adjoining the hotel and in the neighbouring shopping mall, although we didn't find anything delectable at the other places either. In sum, a serviceable, but not memorable, alternative for accomodation in seville.

We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is centrally located within about 15 minutes walk to the old town. The room is good and clean and the breakfast very good. The supermarket next door was very convenient. We would stay there again.

A few things for readers. The hotel is not in the old town but frankly I think that is a plus. The area is safe although be warned it is next to Sevilla Football stadium so in season check when the matches are on.

As other reviewers have said it is easy to get into town by Bus or Metro or even to walk. The latter takes about 20 minutes at a steady pace and it is a really easy and safe route.

You are right on top of local shops and some restaurants, although frankly not that many good ones. You have to go to the town for these.

We went with a hire car and it is easy to find the hotel. We also used the parking which they charge for but frankly you have no choice as parking around here and anywhere in Seville is difficult and well policed.

The rooms are good. The breakfast is expensive for the Buffet at EUR14 but they do have two cheaper options. I think for coffee and a croissant it was EUR 6. Free Wi-Fi and an machine you can use in the lobby.

Would recommend to anybody looking to stay in Seville and keep an eye out for offers.

New hotel in the Novotel chain situated next to the Seville Football Stadium.Rooms are spacious,modern and trendy.Service excellent - only negative - breakfast 14 euros each - avoid - lots of nearby cafes.

New Metro (underground) accross the road, plenty of buses stop outside the hotel. 15 mins (20 mins with cases) from rail staion - supermarkets next door - all ideal for independent traveller.

Novotel Sevilla has very good facilities and is perfect for a short trip to Sevilla. Although the location is not very central, you can easily access the historical city centre (by means of bus or taxi). For us, the best asset of the hotel is the staff! They were really friendly and willing to help whenever necessary.

You won't pick up any feelings of traditional Seville when staying in this hotel, it's typically Novotel based on their style. If you want tradition, then stay elsewhere.

But if you want modern decor, comfortable rooms and a restaurant with great food, then this maybe on your list.

The rooms are typical Novotel, large and comfortable. There are many floors but there is at least 3 lifts to get you up onto the higher floors.

The location is the only issue some people might have. It's about a 10-15 minute walk into the old city/new city, but it can be a bit longer in the searing heat! But no worries, the bus stop is right outside the hotel and this can bring you into the city for €1.20, rate is at time of writing this review. But for the ease of just exiting your hotel and being in the old city with its narrow streets and tapas bars, then this is the only place where this hotel falls short.

Next door is Seville FC's home ground, if you want to pick up a football shirt in the shop or attend a game! Also around the other corner is a modern shopping complex, with a supermarket. There are some restaurants and cafe's just outside the hotel too. If you're getting the bus from the airport, then it drops you off on the road intersecting this avenue. Just watch out for the Nervion Shopping Plaza, that will be your stop.

The restaurant is run by a separate group and the food was wonderful, but you may pay a bit more for it.

I'd no real problems with the hotel, although some of the many staff at reception were not as amiable or chatty as maybe staff at smaller establishments, but this is par for the course.
