The barrio santa cruz is the best place to have your hotel, as it is within walking distance of a lot of interesting places. The streets are narrow, small shops and restaurants with a nice atmospher.

What a beautiful historic area, great restaurants and bars. Take a walk and see where it leads you or better yet get an outside table on the sidewalk and people watch you will never get bored

This was my favourite area of Seville. The small alleyways and colourful buildings side by side with cafes, restaurants and shops, was a delightful eclectic mix. I would like to stay in this area when next in Seville - the locals were friendly and the coffee was good. A nice place to be.

Walking around the narrow streets of the historic center of Seville was delightful! It was like stepping back in time. . . the architecture, the bars and restaurants, the street scene. . . all great! Don't miss it!

Narrow streets, lots of shops and bars and restaurants. Gives you a sense of how it must have been to live in the old Muslim area of Seville. Getting lost is very easy here but with easy access to refreshments and helpful locals it won'[t be a problem

This historic neighbourhood is very interesting. A maze of narrow streets with lots of Tapas bars and restaurants, very reasonable souvenir shops and friendly people. It should not be missed!
