First impressions were that the hotel was a little difficult to find, and it's down a narrowish street on the north side of the main sights in Seville. However, when we found the hotel, we were greeted very warmly by the host, who made us feel very welcome with a coffee and some excellent tips on sights to see and tapas bars to eat. These all turned out to be great recommendations (for reference, recommended tapas bars were Dos de Mayo, Casa Paco and Los Coloniales, all of which were frequented mainly by locals, and provided excellent dishes at excellent value).
The hotel itself reminded me of a Moroccan riad, with a central courtyard, and rooms on all floors surrounding the courtyard; and also an excellent roof terrace with enough shade to keep cool in the Seville sun.
The hotel offered breakfast for a reasonable price, but we decided to eat breakfast at one of many nearby bars/cafés, which was probably a bit cheaper overall.
It's probably a 20 minute walk to the cathedral and Alcazar, but after churros and chocolate for breakfast, a 20 minute walk is a great idea!
Excellent place to stay, highly recommended.
