Hostal San Francisco
Ranked #51 of 72 Seville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2013

My sister and I stayed here for two nights at end of April. We had a twin room which was spotless with comfortable beds ,soft sheets and shutters which kept the room dark for sleeping . Sheets and towels were changed each day and the shower was good .The staff were pleasant though not much English spoken. It is very central and we were able to walk from the station and to all the sights . I would stay again when in Seville

This is a great budget hotel. Only about a 15 minute walk from the train station and on a quiet side street but minutes from the main tourist parts of Seville. Also close to a couple of supermarkets and bars that serve breakfast. The owners were simply lovely - really friendly and kind and they made it clear that nothing was too much to ask. The room was small but was great for the price, and was very clean - in fact cleaned daily, with fresh towels. The only down side to the room was that there was no window so the room was quite dark, but you don't go to Seville to sit in your room do you? This is a great place for a cheap stay in Seville.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window if they have one.

We stayed here for 4 nights. They changed our towels and sheets everyday which was a surprise, but a pleasant one! Great location with minutes to plaza Espana, restaurants and the historical center. A couple of supermarkets close by for snacks. Clean rooms and washrooms. Try to avoid Seville in August if you can. We had to stay in for a couple of hours everyday, it reached 47c one day, around 116f.

We stayed here for two nights and couldn't have asked for more! We were greeted by Javier who was very nice and very helpful (he gave us tons of tips and recommendations). We had a very spacious room overlooking the courtyard that was very clean and very safe. The hostal was conveniently located in the city and within walking distance of many attractions. *The best part of the hostal is that you can hear the cathedral bells from your room.

This well run, clean, safe hostal is in the prefect location, close to the Santa Cruz area. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed our time spent in this lovely city.

Great location easy to find from the train station and so near to everything. The gentleman who greeted us was charming and very friendly as were all the people who worked there.

Last weekend my boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
Overall, we were very happy with the stay. The room was, although very small, really clean. The couple that own the hostal, came to clean and even tidy up our room when we were out in the city, refreshed the towels and the paper,made the bed. Couldn't ask for anything more.
The hostal is in very short walking distance to the old city centre.
When you ask the couple for anything, they really help you immediately. The only downside was that it is located next to the very busy Avd Menendez Pelayo, which, if you have a streetsided room, comes with quite some noise. The first night we had some trouble with it (my boyfriend and i are used to sleeping in a very quiet room on a no traffic street). But the second en third night, we slept right trough it.
The couple doesn't seem to speak English, but they did their very best to make themselves understandable with gestures if needed. I speak some spanish (although very very little) and they really made an effort to understand what i was saying (not all spanish folks seem to have this capacity ;))
Overall: great place to stay for the little money it'll cost you, so you can spend it on much more fun things to do, see, eat & drink!
Also a tip: the taxi dropped us off at avd Menendez Pelayo, and if you go into the correct street, you are at the hostel in 2 minutes. We on the other hand made the mistake of taking the first little street in, and ended walking the city centre for an hour and a half looking for it, as not one spanish person seemed to know this street :)
