Having read reviews criticising the location, I can't fathom how people thought this huge riverside hotel would be slap-bang in the middle of town.
If you don't mind a 20 minute walk across one of the many gorgeous bridges and along the side of the river, then this is the perfect location. Triana is a lively and authentic feeling place, home to some of the best restaurants we ate at in Seville- miles ahead of the touristy places that the centre is flooded with (although, it has to be said that there are some wonderful places in the centre as well).
Although the location really is the hotels ace card, the rest is OK too. There are, apparently, no double beds in the standard rooms (and good luck pushing them together, they scoot apart again too easily for that to be workable!). The breakfast was good as far as buffets go and the staff were always helpful and polite (English wasn't as widely spoken in the city as we were expecting, but our attempts at Spanish were always well received).
My one big complaint about the hotel is regarding the rooftop bar, which is run by a separate company. It was closed during the day and only opened on an evening.. this seems counter intuitive, as we wanted somewhere to relax during the day (when it's hot and things are closed) but wanted to go enjoy the city when it comes alive at night. The bar isn't charming and is very overpriced, so there was no draw to spend an evening there at all. It had the feel of a soulless city-centre bar which was incongruous and unwanted in such a charming area of Seville.
If you want to leave the hotel doorstep and be in the thick of it, then this isn't the hotel for you. If, like me, you enjoy a leisurely stroll (20 whole minutes!) to town to dip into the touristy attractions and buzz, and a hotel surrounded by charming restaurants and bars with charm by the bucketload then it's one to consider.
