We arrived here on New Years Eve, with food poisoning picked up in a previous city, and found we'd been placed into the room right next to the reception desk. Apparently this was because they were fully booked. Now the room right next to reception is REALLY noisy, because every (seemingly shouted) conversation in reception, all night long, comes straight... More

I chose this place since we got a good deal on the Booking site. The great thing is that it's right in the centre with a short walk to all the sights. It's also only a 5€ taxi ride from the train station. Lot of great restaurants nearby as well. They also have the flamenco show in the evening for... More

I have stayed at the Hotel Alcantara now on three separate occasions and will continue to stay here on future trips to Seville. It is always kept beautifully clean, the staff are very helpful and accommodating. It situation is ideal especially when you get to know your way around some of the charming narrow streets. A five minute walk from... More

This hotel is clinically clean, smart and friendly smack in the middle of the Santa Cruz district surrounded by tapas bars, with the main square and cathedral just round the corner. On arrival the man on reception was polite spoke good English and directed us on where to park (about 100m away) the wifi was free and available throught the... More

We stayed at Alcantara recently for two nights during a trip to Sevilla. The hotel was very basic, but clean and the staff welcoming. Our room lacked a place to work (no desk) but was large enough to do the job. The bathroom was also quite basic but served the purpose. We enjoyed the location very much and could walk... More

Small single room, private bathroom and tv. Found a very nice price for one night on a business trip to Seville through the internet. Room was small but cozy and very clean in common areas, inside the room and toilet. Shower facilities and bathroom was great and the wifi inside the room was powerful. The entrance is nice and open... More

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.
