This was my second time staying in the Grand Melia Colon and I was not disappointed that we choose it for a last minute holiday in Seville. The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. The ability and willingness to respond to problems or requests is what sets a hotel apart, the Melia Colon... More

I visited Spain with my family for a 21 day long vacation in August-2014 and one of the stops that i made was in Seville and stayed in Gran Melia Colon. let me start off by saying that hotel from the outside looks like any normal boutique hotel in Seville (or Spain for that matter). So we were not expecting... More

Roadworks almost made it impossible to get there by car but finally figured it out witH help of GPS. Was shocked at the cost of parking. Staff were fantastic. Booked premium room which was not cheap and sounds good right? Actually a pretty standard type room but with huge deck. Would rather have a smaller deck but bigger room. Quite... More

We have stayed with the Melia group in other countries and we were expecting the same experience with this hotel. We stayed as guests of the Red Level which gave access to drinks and nibbles in the late afternoon and also a separate area for breakfast. Unlike other Melias there was not an actual floor for the Red Level customers... More

We recently spent 3 nights here as a base to see Seville. It is a fantastic hotel that is excellently located 5minutes from the Cathedral and shops etc. The staff are excellent and cannot do enough to help. From the moment we arrived we could not fault the service that we received. Our room was beautifully furnished, and the tea... More

Stayed from Sept 8-11 and have no complaints, only compliments for the staff.Great breakfast, nice amenities and perfect location in Seville. Love the art work on each door to he rooms. Gives it an air of elegance. I don't understand the negative reviews, Must be from chronically unsatisfied people.

Wow! I really enjoyed this hotel. Seville is a beautiful city. Everything was in walking distance from the hotel (be careful, we got lost a couple of times. Everything is closer then what the maps indicate). The room was clean; the staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside to the hotel is that our floor smelled like sausage. Weird...I... More

Highlights of our stay at the Melia were the breakfast, rooftop terrace and friendly staff. Especially the charming and elegant male and female receptionists. Lowlights were the red level room. To be frank, it disappointed me - it felt small, I disliked the wallpaper and I didn't really love the way the bathroom is set up. The view from our... More

Not great. Seems to have been a once-grand hotel; there are traces of this in the layout of the lobby and the stained glass cupola. But today it resembles a maiden aunt with bright lipstick and a tattoo... desperately trying to be hip, but failing miserably. Cue brand new but hopelessly cliched early 2000s design touches (plastic horses with lampshades... More
