“Great city break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Have just stayed at the Itaca sevilla and had a wonderful short city break. The staff cannot be complimented highly enough - they are so friendly and helpful! The hotel is fantastically located and the beds and pillows are amazingly comfortable. We didn't have the breakfast, as there are so many cafes nearby, but we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. The only downside is that, as other guests have commented, the floors are marble, so there is quite a lot of noise from other rooms, but that didn't stop our enjoyment.

The hotel is reasonably priced, very clean and a 2 minute walk to the Metropol Parasol and perhaps 5 minutes walk to the main streets and shopping areas.

The staff are really helpful - particularly Israel. They even helped us to organise the unplanned elements of our trip to Spain using their local knowledge.

The hotel can be a little difficult to find, so it is best to get a cab or head to the Metropol Parasol (the giant mushroom looking thing). Then from there head across the road and to the back left-hand side (near the kids book store). Take the right street and it is just around the corner on the left.

Room Tip: For non-European travellers - realise that a 'extra large double' or 'king bed' is a...

Overall this is a nice hotel: everything is brand spanking new and the rooms are super-clean.
However I found it impractical for several reasons:
1) the hotel rooms are arranged riad-style around a central patio, on several foors. These means that all rooms are extremely noisy as the noise is amplified by the patio which is covered by a glass roof.
2) No outside windows! No natural light!
3) The hotel is extremely central but inconveniently located if you are travelling by car. It is near plaza de la encarnacion in a street that is only accessible on foot.
4) The staff was not very nice or helpful.
5) Room was cold, heating did not work and they did not have an extra cover!!

We stayed 2 days, then decided to prolong our stay in seville. They asked for a higher price and we decided to change hotel. It was a good decision, we found another hotel at half price and with no short-comings, Hotel America in Plaza del Duque.

If you ask me this hotel is not at all good value for money, I would steer clear.

Room Tip: Ask if they have a room with an outside window.

Itaca is located on a quiet street in the heart of Seville. Most rooms do not have windows to the outside, only to the covered courtyard on the inside. Don't let that turn you off - its great for sleeping. What is NOT great for sleeping, however, are the tile floored rooms and marble bathrooms, which make the hotel very echo-y. We could hear hear much of our neighbors' activities. Other than that, the rooms were big, clean and nice.

The service was great - attentive staff gave us great guidance as to what to see and where to eat.

In sum, good value, bring ear plugs, and enjoy Sevilla.

This typical Seville-style hotel is located in a quiet street close to Metropol Parasol. The main shopping streets are a 5 minute walk. It was a great base for our Seville city trip. Breakfast is very good and extensive. Bed was HUGE, but a bit squeaky. All the rooms were located around a nice patio, but it proved to be a bit noisy sometimes. The guy at the reception (almost fluent English) was very friendly and helpful and gave us some very handy tips. Would recommend.

We stayed in the Hotel Itaca for 4 nights in October. The Hotel is very central, the people working there are very friendly. BUT: The rooms are very small and they don't have windows! You never get fresh air which is barely standble. Unfortunately I forgot my glases when we left. I contacted the hotel right away they responded directly saying it will cost 50 Euros to send the glases from Spain to Germany. That is a complete ripp off. Luckly i have a good friend in Sevilla who picked the glases up and sent them to me. The package cost 8,90 Euros.

The receptionists were friendly and spoke perfect English. They were very happy to share their knowledge of Seville.
The location is excellent - only a few minutes walk to the main shopping area and 10 to 15 minutes to the old part of the city with great restaurants and bars.
Our double room was spacious and well furnished and the bathroom well stocked.
The buffet breakfast was excellent and included plenty of variety of hot and cold items.
My husband and I have recently retired and couldn't fault it for value for money, friendliness and cleanliness as well as a convenient location ( a 10 minute bus ride from the main train station Sevilla St Justa).
