Frankly, I chose this hotel because it was the only one among the cheap ones in Sevilla that had not a terrible decoration.
The first room I was offered at my arrival had its only window on the corridor! (sic). They call them 'interior', so be careful when booking. I thought this was forbidden. Each floor has six rooms of this kind and three normal rooms with a french window to the street.
We were going to spend a whole week in Sevilla, so I asked for one of these rooms with a window that can be opened to the street, you know what I mean. A normal room.
The room was ok. Clean, reasonnably kept, but things made you remember it was cheap (e.g. plastic glasses in the bathroom).
The street was fairly noisy, but the windows were good, with double glazing.
Breakfast was really poor, at least for us who were going to spend a week. There was a coffee machine, false orange juice and a toaster. All dishes, glasses and cuttlery in plastic. And all this scenery was kept in a 15 sq.m. room. We made do by buying different sorts of fruit in a nearby shop.
But the magic of this city and its inhabitants made us forget everything. This city is really unique, and its citizens are envied by their way of living.
Just one more tip: Do not buy the special transportation card for tourists. The public transportation (buses) has a radial scheme; it connects the perifery with the downtown area, but is almost inexistent in the historical centre, which is very big indeed -2 by 3 km-, and the space where we tourists move. Most of this area is closed to trafic. Moreover, the bus system is sort of Kafkaesque. We chose one day to go by bus to the catedral early in the morning, to discover that that precise line started at 10:30 AM.
