“Classy hotel, helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

On arrival, the staff at the door of Gran melia colon were extremely warm and welcoming. We were shown to our room which was perfectly clean and much larger than what we had originally booked for which was a nice surprise. Each of the floors has character, and the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful when you have questions. The breakfast buffet had everything you could think of, from a wide range of fresh fruits, breads, pastries, eggs, cold cuts, cheeses and cereals. There was even an amazing rooftop jacuzzi, which unfortunately we didn't get to try out - but it looked great! The fitness centre was probably the least impressive part of this hotel as it is basically just a few machines and weights, and the signs leading to it are a bit confusing, especially going out as I often ended up in a back exit somewhere. Otherwise our stay was very comfortable, I would recommend it to anyone and I would come back on another visit to Seville!

A very warm and professional welcome. The room was top. The breakfast was also of a very high level. The location of the hotel is very central. We can recommend this hotel as probably the best hotel in Sevilla.

Having tried the too-cool-to-be-hospitable Eme Catedral and fled to another hotel after just one night, this hotel is the real deal. Super elegant, contemporary design. Lobby, hallways, rooms, bathrooms... Even the doors to the rooms are fabulous, each painted in the style of a detail from a grand master's famous work. My floor was Velasquez, others are Goya, etc. The staff were just as great : super helpful, friendly, efficient, welcoming. A true five star and a great experience on all fronts, to be repeated.

Check out my other reviews for a few great little restaurants to enjoy while you're there.

We stayed here during Semana Santa, a true test of any Seville hotel. It was a wonderful choice - helpful staff, very comfortable rooms, fantastic location. It is at the more expensive end of the price range but we booked through a hotel website and saved considerably on cost. Each floor is named after a Spanish painter with doors painted accordingly. There is a small but lovely sun terrace on the roof, where the jacuzzi overlooks the city, and even some of the processions could be seen from there. Seville was of course wonderfully busy but the hotel felt like an oasis of peace despite being in the centre. The location could not be better. Many Seville hotels reviewed on Trip Advisor have negative comments about noise and I was a little concerned as I hate a disturbed sleep. However, our room overlooked a busy street and there was certainly noise but neighbourhood friendly noises - people talking, eating, families heading back from processions etc. For us, this was part of the charm and vibrancy of the city in its busiest week. There was no thumping nightclub noise or screeching drunk people and our sleep was not disturbed. Seville felt like a very safe place. The hotel was extremely comfortable with delightful staff, and great Clarins amenities. The restaurant was more expensive than other places but not prohibitively so, and we have seen much higher prices in the restaurants of other similar standard hotels elsewhere. Would recommend hotel strongly for an extremely comfortable stay.

Absolutely everything about this hotel is first class, some of the best staff I have experienced in any hotel, so professional and courteous.

Excellently appointed rooms and spotlessly clean. Great breakfast with plenty of choice and of a very high standard.

We would not even consider staying in another hotel in Seville for our next visit!

Just come back from a trip to Seville. Gran Melia Colon was AWESOME...central location...walking distance from everywhere, fabulous food, cool décor, excellent ambiance! But the best thing...AMAZING staff! Both before we arrived (booking tickets, arranging excursions, etc. in advance) and once we were there (recommendations, directions to locations, help with arrangements, etc.) the staff were friendly, articulate, charismatic...everyone went the extra mile! STRONGLY recommend the hotel...but the 'people' really made the difference! Loved Seville we went for Semana Santa...incredible experience!! Will definitely return!

We stayed here during Holy Week and had a great stay. The hotel is wonderful as are the staff. We stayed in a Deluxe room (standard) but we had a terrace which was lovely in the evenings. I don't think all Deluxe rooms come with a terrace as standard - we stayed in room 127. I really loved the paintings on the door. Handy,on the second day, when we couldn't remember our room number!
Our only grumbles are very small.
My husband is a vegetarian, I am not. The 2 restaurants have very little for vegetarians - 2 small dishes. The hotel staff did say that they would make an omelet and although this was kind, we were expecting more especially from a Melia hotel's tapas menu. We stayed at the Melia in Berlin at New Year and my husband had plenty of choice. As we were near some good places to eat it wasn't a big problem but it would have been nice to have eaten there- some of the meat dishes sounded fab. The cocktails at the bar were a tad small and weak too. We found a fantastic bar not far away which served some of the best cocktails I've ever had but it would have been nice to have enjoyed a good cocktail at the hotel.
Having said all that I still give this a 5 star and would certainly stay here again!
