My friends and I spent two nights here and enjoyed it. But be aware: arriving by car after dark presents some challenges, as the traffic was frenetic and the car park is a bit hidden. Hint: despite the narrowness, turn into the alley right behind the hotel -- the car park is down a narrow ramp. If you can find a place to park temporarily on the street (lot of luck with that), ask for valet service. Fortunately, once you're parked, you won't want or need your car again until you leave Seville.
Despite a bit of a mix-up with our reservation (the third bed was missing), the staff resolved it with with speed and kindness. A third (real!) bed was rolled in and made up within minutes, and additional towels delivered at the same time. We were pleased, and saw no reason to change rooms the next day, despite the offer to do so.
The room was well appointed, with coffee/hot water service, a safe, large windows that opened, plenty of electrical outlets, side chairs, mini bar/frig, and good wifi. The bathroom was beautifully modern, with a spa-like shower (no tub), hair dryer, a large window that opened, toilet and bidet, and a stunning sink that functioned just fine but had minimal counter space and wasn't the best for doing any hand laundry. But that's minor nit-picking - the bathroom was beautiful.
The included breakfast buffet was quite good, if a bit hectic. This hotel evidently attracts and caters to tour groups, so the breakfast room can get crowded, and you may have to elbow in to get another shot of coffee at the self-serve machine. The food selection included eggs, sausage, fresh fruits, cereals, yogurt, juice, and lots of tasty pastries to work off during your day of walking around lovely Seville.
The location was excellent -- close to the old city center and close to the river -- we walked everywhere. The staff at Hotel Becquer was particularly gracious and friendly, and gave us a terrific restaurant recommendation for a small tapas bar across the river. This location is much easier than being in the old center, if you have a car.
We slept quite well here -- I'd asked for a quiet room and our windows opened onto the back side of the building, away from street noise. I give this property a solid recommendation, and I would absolutely stay here again.
