“Fantastic Location.. Superb Staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you want a room with a view.. this really is the place to go. Sevilla is a wonderful city and this is a classy hotel. I was lucky enough to have one of the 3 penthouse suites and had the most amazing view of the cathedral from my hot-tub! The rooms are smart and the air-con works very well (important in Sevilla!!!)

It has its faults.. some of the rooms are noisy and Santo (see other review) was poor. The flowers on my terrace needed more love and the odd bits of furniture could have done with a bit of restoration!

The big plus for me was the service we all received.. Front desk and the restaurants could not do enough to help us.. and special recognition should go to Cinthia and Africa working the outside bar... brilliant girls!

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely go back.

Great location and best view of La Giralda. It may get noisy at times given the close proximity to the cathedral (bills, bills, and more bills!), noise from the street, and from the busy terrace bar above! Breakfast is good, but the italian restaurant is a disaster! Overall service is good, and staff are very friendly and helpful. Non of the sap staff spoke any English and we spoke no Spanish! If you had a car it will cost you 30Euros for parking per day and you need a good 30 minutes to get your car to the hotel (we missed our train to Madrid because of that! but it is partially our fault, we should have allowed more time)

The hotel is absolutely perfectly situated. Easy access to all the historical and cultural areas of Seville. Very nicely decorated and good quality materials used, although the finish in certain areas is of a poor standard. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, all fresh and plenty of it. Didn't eat in the restaurant because starters around the 20 - 25€ and mains around the 32 - 40€ was extreme. As were the cost of drinks throughout the hotel especially on the roof terrace. 1 water and a mojito cost 16€. this is where the hotel lets itself down badly. The pool was smaller than the pictures lead you to believe and there were no sunbeds?? So people were forced to push chairs together and try to make there own beds. Not good. However all in all the hotel was good and I would return.

Really you can't want for anything more while staying in Seville. This place is awesome! Great rooms, location, food, bar and service. My highlight ... While driving in my friend and I got very lost in Seville (it really is a bit of a maze) so we called the hotel to ask for help. They actually sent someone out on foot to find us and then drive us personally to the hotel. Thank you Johannes and Eme Catedral for amazing customer service ... Really a wonderful experience!

If you want a good, central location in "old" Seville, then this is probably one of the best. Stylish and staffed by beautiful people, it's a great refuge from the heat and bustle of the city. OK, it's not cheap, but there are deals to be had. The rooms are stylish, spacious (at leas in De-lux options) although the quality of the finishing left something to be desired. No movies on TV, no DVD player and no ipod dock - a big minus in a hotel of this supposed calibre. It's also looking a little tatty in some places and a general freshen-up would not go amiss. Roof-top bar is fun with achingly cool music. Drinks are expensive but if you want a view like this, then you usually pay for it somehow. So watch your bar bills and incidental's and it's resaonble
