“Gets everything just right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

A wonderful stay at this very stylish but friendly hotel. Very comfortable room with amazing views over Seville. Pretty good location. Amazing views from the rooftop spa, and very good breakfast. The staff were really helpful. Jacoppo in particular dealt with some issues we had with the first room offered and he made sure that we had a really comfortable and memorable stay. Highly recommended.

The pleasing price, a jacuzzi and sun terrace on the roof and a complaint about the complicated lighting are what clinched the deal. And did I mention bags of style? From entering the cool (in every sense of the word) lobby, I wasn't disappointed with it or Seville. Three days wasn't long enough and the offer of 30% off the next three was irresistible. Here with a friend to breathe Seville's essence as well as do some writing, the communal air conditioned spaces and the outdoor terrace on the 7th floor were perfect havens.
Set in the old part of the city, shop, Palace, Cathedral, bullring, museum, gallery, restaurant or tapas bar are all an easy walk.
Oh, and you'll have fun with the lighting - it certainly kept us entertained, we finally got them all turned out by our last but one night.

Magnificent in all aspects. Safe, clean, gorgeous, perfect location to museums, excellent concierge services, lovely breakfast. Expensive YES but worth it. Frequent Western European travelers....always bring our kids...may be the nicest hotel we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. And Seville is fabulous in its own right, especially if you follow the recommendations of the staff. Colors and decor...you feel like you are in a movie. P.s. it's also worth taking a day trip to Jerez to see the horses and the wineries. But come back to this hotel at night, cause you will be spoiled.
Chose the hotel from TripAdvisor recommendation ...... we are willing to pay for piece of mind when travelling with the kids....worth every penny and would chose it, pay for it again.

I really wanted to love this hotel but my wife and I were completely disappointed. Our bathroom was dirty and full of mold. The mold stunk so bad that we couldnt take it any more. Also the walls were all scuffed. I went downstairs and advised them of the problem - They switched us rooms. The new room had the same problem (bath full of mold) but the smell was tolerable so we decided to stay. The problem with this hotel is that they do not pay attention to detail. The garbage can in the bath had a broken handle, all the walls are scuffed up including in the hallways...the bathrooms are full of mold....also there is an odd scent throughout the whole hotel which is annoying after the first day. Also Candido the concierge as nice as he is, sent us to eat lunch at a HORRIBLE dump called Las Piletas. I assume he is getting kickbacks from there as I see that other readers sent them there as well. We discovered on our own an amazing restaurant (open for lunch and dinner) called La Azotea which was even closer to the hotel than the nasty place he sent us AND La Azotea is not to be missed. He never mentioned this place. Check it out on trip advisor and see the reviews yourself. Last time I checked, it was ranked 6th in all of Seville. Anyway....we went to a 3 city tour of Spain and this was BY FAR our LEAST favorite hotel. I wouldnt recommend - there are other places in Seville much better than this place.

Dear Mr. Vasquez,

First of all I would like to thank you for taking your time to express your thoughts and opinions about your last stay at Gran Melia Colón.

Before going any further we would like to sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused, each service fault mentioned in your comment has been passed on to our management team for further evaluation and improvement.

Regarding the bathroom remark, we are glad to inform you that, it is something we have been deal with already, and we are working at the moment to assure a perfect impression.

We are completely disappointed you didn’t like the restaurant recommendation. We understand that such a place is designed for certain travelers looking for a traditional atmosphere and cuisine.

I hope that you will reconsider to visit our Hotel and our Restaurant El Burladero, and look forward to welcoming you personally during your next stay in Seville.

Warm regards

Classy hotel in all respects. Attentive service, very thoughtful recommendation and proactive help. Outstanding breakfast to boot!

Very central location, easy walking distance to pretty much all points of interest. About 10 min cab ride from the train station

This is a wonderful, up to date hotel, in a central location in Sevilla. The rooms and baths are modern, very clean and comfortable, the staff is great, and the atmosphere in general is very pleasant.
