“Hotel to go absolutely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel which is actually a convent converted in a beautiful hotel. We can stil feel the atmosphere of the past but have all the modernity and enjoy the luxury of very nice rooms, swimming pool and spa. We went at the restaurant and the food was just great, actually the best dinner we had in Aracena. We advice each visitor to visit the restaurant at least once. He won't be deceive. The receptionist, Marco Alvarez was a great help and gave us all the information we need to visit the area. He was very friendly and always willing to help us with any ask. By the way, he speaks french currently and that was very nice for us too. We will visit this hotel again and wish all the guests to have the same pleasure we had.

Room Tip: The suites the best one, of course.

Went here to see some of the scenery outside Seville and booked this excellent Hotel and found that this would also be a nice place to stay a little longer. We only stayed one night.
Good service, easy parking outside, modern and only a ten minute walk from the city centre. For those visiting the area an can really recommend this hotel.

The Hotel Convento Aracena is a former convent located in Aracena.

Positive:
- The entrance of the hotel, a former chapel, is absolutely beautiful

Negative:
- The hotel is about 1km away from most restaurants and sights
- The indoor pool is part of the Spa, which needs additional payment for access and is not accessible for children < 8 years of age (no exceptions). The outdoor pool is much too cold in the off season (we stayed here in March) and not well maintained during the off season either
- Many rooms are located towards the street, which, despite its seemingly remote location, is quite noisy
- WLAN does not work for any Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac). Staff is aware of the problem but there is apparently no way to fix this

Room Tip: We stayed in the Junior Suite, which is a very nice room but located towards the street and too nois...

After trying for years to find somewhere decent to eat in Aracena it's finally arrived!

I didn't stay at this hotel but had a lovely couple of hours in the spa followed by lunch. Both were of excellent quality, the spa was spotlessly clean and a pleasure to be in, great to have an indoor pool that's not just a jacuzzi. Lunch was lovely, the restaurant has nicely spaced tables with great views over the village and nearby hills. We then had coffees in the bar area, again of excellent quality and a lovely place to relax and be in the tranquil surroundings of a beautiful building which has been extremely sympatheticly restored with quality furnishings.

I will definitely return!

Our group of 5 had just finished a hike up to the Castillo (castle), and as there was a chill in the air thought we would stop by this newly opened property. Wow, what an amazing building. Walking into the hotel you really knew you were stepping into something special. We headed into the bar/lounge area and after waiting a few minutes approached the gentleman on the front desk to see if there was someone who could serve us a drink... we were definitely in the mood for beverages hot or cold as it had just turned New Year back home. As we had arrived a little before when there was going to be someone able to serve us we were invited to have a look around the property. A feast for the eyes, blending the old and the new. While the architecture was stunning, the simple things certainly stood out... the orange and lemon trees with fruit on them and a Stork's nest including the Stork on the rooftop. The vaulted ceilings of the main building, the original fixtures and the simplicity of the furnishings all blended creating a simple elegance.
I didn't go in the rooms, but, was told that they were well appointed.
After this visual feast we were definitely ready for the beverages.
Unfortunately, this was not to be. We may have stayed if we had someone arrive to help us on this quest.

A superb transformation of an old building; the place oozes style and comfort. Our room was spacious, elegant and super clean. The lounge was comfortable and we spent a good hour sipping our drinks and using the wi fi to catch up with friends and family in a wonderful open space
with arches, high timber ceilings,bare brick walls and carefully selected pieces from the convent of old.The inner courtyards are well planted and bright white boasting a pool and sitting areas but just
out of season for us to use, the end of October. The restaurant was authentically Spanish and we had a very good and simply cooked meal;the wild mushrooms scrambled with eggs and Serrano ham was lovely. We would love to go there again and stay a bit longer!
