Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We needed to pick someone up at the Seville airport early one morning so we chose to stay in the nearby city of CARMONA, which is very picturesque. We stayed at the Alcazar de la Reina. which is a beautiful hotel in a city full of history. The staff was gracious and helpful, The breakfast was delicious., The rooms were wonderful, comfortable and spacious.. The price was very reasonable for a hotel of this class!!!

The Alcazar was excellent value for money. The bedroom and bathroom were on a par with a parador, but much cheaper and both rooms were well equipped, a proper bath in the bathroom, good toiletries and hairdryer, free wi-fi throughout the hotel, very quiet, but efficient air conditioning. We had free parking right outside the hotel .Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and was included in the price. Perhaps the most outstanding feature was the friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff, who all seemed to understand and speak excellent English
especially Melisa. We did not use the swimming pool or spa, but they were available had we wished to do so.

Had a two night stay at the hotel, staying in a room for two adults and one child. First important note is do NOT rely on your sat nav to get you to the hotel by car. It will take you up some streets suitable only for a mini or smaller! Instead, use the yellow tourist road signs that guide you along passable street and / or contact the hotel to guide you if you have a mobile phone.

The pluses and minuses:

PLUSES:

+ Lovely hotel with character in a mansion house.
+ Pool adequate and generally clean. I borrowed the pool net just once to scoop out a few bugs and feathers before taking a dip. But overall it was clean.
+ Rooms good size with air con that worked OK.
+ Shower temp and pressure in bathroom sufficient.
+ Parking OK - Underground garage for charge or free gated car park that is locked at night.
+ Service friendly
+ Eat in Bar next to hotel. Tapas good value, beer ice cold. Service very friendly.
+ Quiet location, nice views.
+ Close to restaurants, sights and 5-10 mins walk from Parador

THE MINUSES:

- Access by car can be difficult. Do not use Sat nav. Phone hotel for guidance.
- Cleanliness in room. Bath & Basins clean but marble floor dirty. Think it could be a case of staff being overstretched.
- Breakfast. There is variety but the quality is just OK. (Tough tasteless bacon, jams cheap quality, fruit not fresh, etc).

Overall I woul recommend the hotel. It has its faults but the overall experience was good.

Booked into this hotel by mistake, thinking we were going to be close to Seville. Finding out it was 30 kilometers aways was a shock. Luckily, the tourist office at the train station knew how to get there. Taking the 30-45 minute ride on the bus can be enjoyable, be sure to put your luggage inside the compartment on the side of the bus.
Our mistake turned into a delight visit as we were able to enjoy the quiet, quaint, atmosphere of the town. Beware, the bars and restaurants only open during certain hours. If you get there at the wrong time, you might have to wait until 8:30 or 9 p.m. to eat a hot meal.
The hotel's facilities are great, the rooms, the lobby, the restaurant next door are of 4 star quality. The breakfast buffet has many items on its menu.
Biggest disadvantage of staying in Carmona is lack of transportation means. The town is divided into two sections, the old and the new. If you don't have a car you have to walk up and down steep narrow streets. There are two means of public transportation, a free tourist bus which only runs when it has enough customers and an urban bus which makes a large loop around the city. There's plenty to see, good food and most of the people were very friendly. We arrived a couple of days after a major festival and all the business owners were taking time off. But to our delight a religious procession to the Virgin de La Rocio took place during our stay. Glad we made the booking mistake. FYI: I hear it gets HOT during the summer.

Room Tip: Get a street side room to enjoy the great panoramic view.

The internet Wifi and airconditioning were not working in the rooms - not good for a 4 star hotel with 4 star prices. We have stayed in hotels for half the price with working airconditioner and internet. The airconditioning doesn’t operate until end April, until then only heat - not helpful when the temperature outside is 30 deg. There is supposed to be Wifi in the rooms, but the lady at reception was not surprised when I told her there wasn’t. There was good Wifi reception in the reception area – “could she move us to a room above reception?”. “No, unfortunately not possible”. Not sure why - this is a large hotel and there appeared to be very few guests.

The rooms are large and comfortable, although the bathroom needed a rejuvenation - old tiling, some cracks and stains.

The hotel is an old historic building and is very impressive - large courtyard and large swimming pool. I think if all of the facilities that you are paying for are working, then it would be very comfortable.

Carmona is a lovely town for an overnight stop, many old interesting buildings, small cobbled laneways and beautiful central plaza - a very relaxing place for a drink on a hot afternoon.

A quietly elegant hotel, beautifully located in a quaintly historical little town.
Nice large and comfortable room and a very good breakfast, what more can you want?
We did not eat our evening meal in the restaurant but had a drink in the Irish Bar attached to the hotel which was very pleasant.

We were Blown away by this hotel, the reception staff were excellent the room was beautiful and spotless clean can't find fault with the hotel room at all. The Tapas Bar at the hotel was lovely the food was excellent, We booked a table for a meal in the restaurant on the Saturday evening the setting was stunning the food was Typicaly Spanish fare very tasty the only thing that let it down was my main course, the food was luke warm and served on cold plates, they took it back to heat it up and they put it back on another cold plate which straight away chilled the food again. Such a small thing but in the end I left the food as my husband had finished his and I had gone past mine by that time. Stick to the tapas bar as it is much better value for money.
