The Alcantara hotel gets all kinds of good review on this site, but my experience has been much more negative. I was given room number 9, which is litteraly between the entrance and the reception desk. On top of that, the flamenco show is right besides the door, so every bang from the show resonates in the room. Between that... More

So, the best thing about this place is probably it's location. It's not directly accessible by car/taxi because it's located in Barrio Santa Cruz (which is the old Jewish district, which was walled off and they had nowhere to expand so the streets are teeny-tiny) but you can be dropped off within a 30-second walk away so it's not a...

Fabulous location in Santa Cruz, please note if you have heaps of luggage you do have a few minutes walk along the pedestrian zone. Warm welcome and as a single traveller, my small double was just perfect in size. I was there for 3 nights and found it a real cosy experience. Ok so no tea, coffee, fridge facilities...but none...

This hotel is centrally located, close to all the attractions. But our room was so small we could barely turn around in it. It had poor bathroom amenities. Spotty WIFI. OK breakfast included with our room.

Next to Seville's best flamenco show. The Flamenco show is a must see, absolutely wonderful.The staff are lovely and the location is great. A reasonable breakfast to start your day. You can walk easily to all of Seville's best attractions.

Jorge really made a difference in our stayed at the hotel. Overall nice and recommended place to spend some nights, and very convenient closely to the city center. Buffet breakfast was also really tasty.

Right in the heart of Sevilla's old city, near the Murillo gardens, the Alcazar and other sights, plus lots of restaurants. Good sized room, good a/c, comfortable beds. Good, reasonable priced breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff.

Tripadvisor lead me to this hotel. It was a very good choice as we like to be in the middle of the old town, the Barrio Santa Cruz area. This hotel was in a quiet alley just steps away from restos, sights, and 8 minutes from the cathedral and Alcazar. The price in September was very competitive. The room was... More

Like many of the reviews this small boutique is in a fantastic location. It is extremely quiet that you can hear the palm tree in the gorgeous courtyard sway in the breeze. Rooms are smallish, and there's no mini bar for storing a cold bottle of vino, which was a shame.. The staff are very friendly and multilingual and are... More

The Hotel Alcantara is centrally located in the old city of Seville. The hotel is small but charming, mostly modern. Rooms are smallish but comfortable. There is a nice breakfast buffet served in the lobby and patio. The hotel has its own flamenco shows twice nightly in an adjoining auditorium. The show was great!
