“Disappointing.”
Reviewed 2 May 2010

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.

The title says it all. Nicely appointed room with a very comfortable bed. The sound of the fountain in the courtyard is soothing. Quiet area at night. I reported a minor problem to the front desk shortly after checking in. The person at the desk was at my door within 2 minutes and problem was taken care of. Met 4 different folks behind the reception desk throughout my stay at the end of April 2010. All had smiles and were very courteous and friendly. Yes, it's a bit tricky to find, but well worth it. Loved this hotel. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

El Rey Moro was one of our favorite hotels in our trip through Spain. What a find! The location is perfect (though difficult to find in the old city maze)-- right in the midst of the Santa Cruz neighborhood. Since most of what we wanted to see in Seville was near the Cathedral, we couldn't ask for a better location. The old Spanish style building is built around a beautiful courtyard with a galleried walkway on each floor. The railings are painted graceful wrought iron complemented with overflowing window boxes of bright flowers. The rooms are of good size, with the most comfortable beds! Charmingly decorated. The beautiful Spanish-tiled bathrooms are well-equipped. Nice toiletries. There was good, free wifi. Since there were 5 of us, we got two doubles with one room having a rollaway. My son said it was comfortable. There were many small shops and restaurants surrounding the hotel. We enjoyed Seville immensely-- it's just the most romantic, beautiful place to stroll, enjoy the architecture, the sights, and the lovely gardens and squares. El Rey Moro was a fabulous piece of the whole experience. We enjoyed our stay and will return!

Comfortable, clean, suberb location, friendly staff, lovely room. We didn't eat here and have only one complaint - we couldn't get tea brought to our room in the morning which would have been fine had we had tea making facilities. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is just as charming as the pictures advertised. The central courtyard is lovely. The bed was indeed super comfortable, and the staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. The location in the Barrio Santa Cruz couldn't have been better for seeing the sights of Sevilla. We parked our car in the Cano y Cuenta parking lot, which the hotel had suggested in their confirmation email, and it was an easy walk from there to the hotel. We appreciated the use of the computer and printer in the business center, along with the free WiFi in our room. The complimentary bottled water was also a nice touch. We were having such a good time and loved the hotel so much that we decided to stay an extra night; they graciously accommodated this last-minute request. We highly recommend the El Rey Moro Hotel to budget-conscious travelers and hope to stay there again some day!

Really great hotel, and couldn't be in a much better location if you're wanting to see the cathedral and Alcacar, and eat at some great restaurants. A few things to note: your taxi will have to drop off a block or so away from the hotel because the front door is not accessible by car. Luckily, we had a taxi driver who knew exactly where to drop us, and it was only a few minutes walk. The front desk clerk was friendly and efficient, and the hotel is quaint and very charming. High security (doors locked at all times), but the area is really safe and we never felt uncomfortable, even walking late at night. The rooms are on the small side, but equipped with a flat screen tv mounted to the wall and a small seating area. Each room also has an outdoor seating area that faces the courtyard.
The bathroom was also small, but has a good sized tub and a hairdryer. Good restaurant that opens for dinner at 7:30, but there are also tons of great restaurants everywhere you turn. Overall, a great hotel in an outstanding location. We would definately return!
