“Basic hostel with a good location”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Grand Luxe Hostel has a perfect location and an amazing rooftop. Those are the best things in the hostel because otherwise it's really basic hostel. We stayed in a room for 4 persons and it was too small. The bathroom was dirty and everything in the bathroom was broken.
Tho I wanna say special thanks to the staff there. They were really friendly and helpful. Especially this one woman who worked yesterday morning there doing everything by herself, making the breakfast, washing dishes, taking care of the reception etc. I have never seen a spanish working so hard and fast. Still she was nice to everyone.

Stayed in a spacious double room with balcony (201 if remember correctly), most other rooms have only very limited day light/ window and I would not recommend if you require more than just a bed.
The rooftop is great. Place very central but tricky to find.
It is a hostel with two iron stair cases, so you will frequently hear other guests, no outside noise.
Place seems to be very popular among Asian travelers.
Breakfast simple but ok

From the official pictures, the name GRAND LUXE, and the cost i expected something different, i spent 10 days travelling all arond Spain and for the same price all the other places i stayed were better, this one is just an hostel with plain IKEA furnitures, a beutifull view from the terrazza, in a very central zone. The included breakfast is nothing special (bread, cereals, marmelade, coffe, juice) and they say it is served from 8a.m. but actually they arrive and start preparing it at 8... and you have to wassh up! i understand this is an hostel and this level of service is acceptable if you pay 8€ for a bunk bed but we took the double private bathroom room and paied the same price we would have in an hotel so we expected a better level.

The staff were cheerful, pleasant and very helpful. They answered many questions for us and are a high spot of this hostel. The hostel is located with site of the cathedral and a couple minutes from the main square. However they are on a quiet lane which is a positive. It is an excellent location for visiting Seville. The room was comfortable with everything we needed. The breakfast was basic but there is a fridge for storing your own food as well as a full kitchen available for guest use. There are at least two markets within walking distance. The hostel is an ideal location with a lot going for it. Even if you aren't looking for a hostel this is little different from a hotel and a great value.

We stayed two nights in one of the double rooms at Grand Luxe. Our room was very simple, a bit more sparse than I was expecting, but that was completely fine with us. We don't travel to stay in fancy rooms. The breakfast was also pretty basic, but the excellent service, great location, clean accommodations, reliable wifi and spectacular rooftop patio make it a hands-down excellent choice for lodging in Sevilla.

I just spent two nights at Gran Luxe Hostel and will be HIGHLY recommending it to others who star in Sevilla. The location cannot get any better! You are a stones throw from the Alcazar and Giralda and loads of eateries. I stayed in a double room with a balcony view of the Giralda, which was stunning to wake up to. All though it is listed as a hostel, its more high end and modern then any other hostel I have stayed in. The room also had its own bathroom. Breakfast was amazing, I had a friendly crepe chef make a delicious breakfast. Staff was always smiling and very helpful. Everyone I met at the hostel ranged from ages 25 to 35, its a perfect balance for someone budget conscious but still looking for great quality service.

This hostel is in a great location, has secure entry and 24hr reception, which is important for me when travelling solo. Staff were helpful and the room and bathroom were very clean. I stayed in a Double room with private bathroom. Only got 1 towel and no bath mat, but that was ok for a night. It has a lift and there is airconditioning, which I am sure you would need in the summer. WiFi worked well.
This hostel is great value and I would recommend it if you are on a budget. It is near some much more expensive hotels. It is very close to the Tram and you can walk to most places.
Breakfast was help yourself in the kitchen area. Not my style, being commercial coco pops etc but it looked plentiful and there was bread to make toast. The kitchen area was available for guests which would be handy if staying longer.
The rooftop view of the cathedral is lovely.
