I chose the Rey Moro hotel on the basis of several travellers reviews found online, because I judge this the most objective way to form my own opinion prior to the trip.
Possibly for the very first time, I was profoundly disappointed by the reality of this hotel as opposite to the image that I had got. The reputation this hotel somehow got on the web is definitely deceiving, as this is what it is: little more than a hostel, furnished cheaply in some supermarket for interiors decoration in the outskirts of town, pulling together an array of different things, from the recycled old tea-table to the plastic chair, from the fake-leather white bed-board to the plywood cupboard that trembles and oscillates everytime you touch it.... The 'moresque' style inner court is as a matter of fact only half of a court, a horseshoe facing a plain wall above which a rather disarmonic and neglected ensemble of constructions without appeal. On one corner of the same courtyard is a desolate piece of furniture possibly used from time to time as a 'bar', beside which some room is used as a recharging point for seg-ways. No other common spaces, apart from a little room where the best facilities of the whole place are to be found: free internet access with printer and a minifridge with mini-water bottles at clients disposal. Rooms can be small to the point of having you 'walk like an egyptian' - but I am sure some must be bigger and better, price following surface... By the way, price is not exactly cheap, if at an advange rate of 95 euros for the singlle they do not even give you breakfast, which is anyway a continental style buffet served in Murillo hotel on the opposite side of the alley. So here is the problem: the hotel is not unsustainably BAD - it is not even the worst I've ever seen - but it is definitely NOT what it is misleadingly presented to be.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in a delightful area of Seville, in the picturesque and authentic Barrio de Santa Cruz, the hotel is an attractive, converted manor house dating back to the 16th century. The Barrio de Santa Cruz is a charming area of the city with narrow, cobbled streets dotted with orange tree-lines plazas and centrally located within walking distance of many of the major attractions, such as the cathedral and the Alcazar.

There is also a popular restaurant that serves traditional Andalusian and Mediterranean cuisine. ... more less
