We stayed for three nights, our family of six. We had to get three rooms. Rooms are small. Towels are like sandpaper. Beds are incredibly comfortable. Upon arrival we were greeted by some of the nicest people in the world. And they gave us cava!! The best part of this hotel is the very kind and helpful people. The oddest... More

I stayed at The Gran Melia Colon during a recent trip to Sevilla to visit my sister. I wanted a hotel near where she was living and the GMC was only a 5 minute walk. It has a wonderful location. I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go, some being further than others. The Plaza de Espana was... More

We recently stayed at the Melia Sierra Nevada and opted for The Level which was well worth the extra money. When making our reservation at the Melia in Seville, we again opted for the Red Glove Service but this time we were disappointed as it did not measure up to our expectations. The hotel is lovely, room spotlessly clean and... More

The hotel is in a good location on the edge of the Old town and about 10 minutes walk to the Alcazar and Cathedral. It looks very grand from the outside and is interesting inside the lobby and the hallways. We booked the family room which was spacious enough but the beds were tiny! The size was fine for children... More

We recently spent five nights at the Grand Melia Colon and were completely satisfied. The staff were always pleasant and helpful, our room was comfortable and quiet, and the food was better than one might expect even from a flagship property of a large chain. We chose to use their "Red Glove" service, though for the little advantage we took... More

The hotel is situated just outside the center, but after a nice short walk along the shopping streets, you are right in the hart of Sevilla. The hotel is very nice: well decorated, clean, with small but nice rooms and good bathrooms. The only setback is that it is big and therefore it lacks some atmosphere. All the staff react... More

I stayed at the Gran Melia Colón in June 2014. Great staff, Beautiful room and bathroom, excellent amenities, great management. Loved the decoration (especially the doors decorated after Spanish painters masterpieces) and the tapas restaurant, as well as the breakfast restaurant.

Stayed at the Gran Melia Colon for four nights. The hotel is located in a very nice building just minutes walk from the main shopping area in Seville and a 20 minute walk to the Cathedral. This is the second Melia property I have stayed in in Europe and it didn't disappoint. The one in Dusseldorf was also very good.... More
