We had a phenomenal stay at this location. The hotel was very clean and had all the ammenities we needed (including very comfortable beds!). The hotel staff was incredibly helpful with directions and other recommendations. The hotel is situated in a truly authentic neighborhood among the small narrow streets, that are a hallmark to Seville. As an aside, there is... More

Hotel was borderline a poor rating. Staff and the common area saved the reviews. Our room was teeny even by European standards. You basically jumped in your bed and the teeny window looked into the inside area with all the air conditioning. There was a range of rooms our travel companions had. One couple had a huge room that would... More

The hotel is located in the very heart of the historical Seville, walking distance to all major tourist attractions. The rooms are clean, spacious, light and comfortable. The stuff is very lovely, friendly and professional. There is free WIFI which works perfectly well. If necessary the hotel can provide irons, extra hair dryers etc, all quick and free. I would...

I returned to the Alcántara in May for my annual visit and, as always, I was made really welcome by the very friendly and helpful staff. The standard was as high as ever. It's also great to see that the Alcántara's flamenco show in the Casa de Flamenco situated at the entrance to the hotel, is doing really well with... More

This hotel is basic enough, but the rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. It is excellent value, and has a great location. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations and directions. Buffet breakfast is extra, and at €6 maybe a little expensive but okay. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to others.

Great value and good service in this historic, well-located, hotel. Good breakfast that was included in my rate thanks to a Trip Advisor promotion. The Free Feel the City walking tour picks you up at about 10:05-10:10 every morning (you tip at the end of the tour, but it is officially free). Most impressive was when I reported that the... More

Your money will go much farther elsewhere. You're paying to stay near the Giralda when you stay here, but that also means this hotel is surrounded by very expensive (mostly bad) tapas places and cheesy on-demand flamenco shows for tourists. My room was pretty tiny with an even tinier bed (much like you'd picture for someone locked into a convent... More

We rented a car for this trip and found navigating in the major Andalusia cities difficult. I note others had trouble finding parking for this hotel. I don't recall where I found information to park at the public carpark at Cano y Cuesto but once we found it, everything was fine. Getting there was a major headache as street signs... More

We spent 4 nights at Hotel Alcantara and enjoyed it very much! The location was perfect for Seville--in the heart of this lovely city. Our room was small but cozy and quiet--we were in Room 37 at the end of the hall. The staff was extremely kind and helpful--we appreciated the excellent service. We didn't eat breakfast here but opted... More
