“On the verge of 5 star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Same goes with the bathroom. The breakfast was outstanding. Nothing prepares you for the day with a wide variety of food. All the produce was extremely fresh.

One little note. A friend in our group had a room without a bath tub. So make sure you confirm while checking in whether your room has a bath tub or not.

This hotel is a bad value. Half the rooms have no view, they are small, and the moldy ceiling just gave me the creeps. The staff at check in were generally not helpful, except for one woman, but she could not make up for the rest. It is also a taxi ride away from the interesting old town sites. Stay at a different hotel. I noticed a Melia Coda near the old town. It looked very nice, and when I checked on line it was 50€ more per night. Maybe next time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the plaza de espana and the pool.

The Melia Sevilla is a very nice hotel. Close to the city center (about 15 minutes walk), there is also a metro and busstation nearby. Excellent breakfast buffet!
The room was good and spacious, a bathroom with bad and seperate shower. The free wifi was als very good.

We stayed here for 5 nights this week and have no complaints whatsoever. Prior to arriving in Seville, I had a few questions which the Guest Experience Manager, Estrella, was more than happy to answer via email which was a big help (I contacted her via Trip Advisor)

We booked via Melia.com which meant that we got 15% off the room price. We paid a few euros extra per night to have a view of Plaza de Espana which was well worth it. The king sized bed was very comfortable and with me being pregnant and my husband being fussy, we ordered ergonomic and maternity pillows from the "pillow menu" for free which was much appreciated. Great spacious bathroom with a bath and separate shower unit. Loads of wardrobe space which lit up as you walked past it!

Our Spanish isn't good at all but we found that the reception staff spoke very good English. We used Blue Bar every day (to spend the 10 euros we got given each day for booking via Melia.com) and didn't find the language barrier an issue like the previous reviewer did - the staff's English was better than our Spanish :-)

The highlight of our stay for my husband was the buffet breakfast - great variety, delicious food, helpful staff. I'm a vegetarian but still found plenty to eat every morning which generally lasted us until dinner each night.

We found the location to be perfect. It was a 15 minute walk from the hotel to the cathedral/city centre but we really enjoyed the walk and it was a good opportunity to burn off a few calories. One of our favourite places to visit in Seville was Plaza de Espana (beautiful photo opportunities at night as well as a great place to be during the sunny days) and having that just across the road was perfect for us.

We were really happy to discover that the outdoor pool was open - this was earlier than usual because of the great weather. Bonus!

We got the bus to/from the airport which was just 4 euros per person per trip. The bus stop was about a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Would we stay somewhere else if we came back to Seville? No; this ticked all boxes for us.

Room Tip: We had a room on 10th floor overlooking Plaza de Espana. We loved the view and was never aware of an...

Reception staff friendly, and speak English, but this was the first hotel in Spain we stayed at where the bar staff spoke no English . The restaurants seem to only open for conferences- so can't comment on any other staff. The room we had had a strange bathroom, separated into two zones one with a double basin vanity - that backed onto the wardrobe - which was in the entry passage - with 2 way access. The other part of the bathroom was behind a glass door and was a bath, with a hand shower, along side was a shower cubicle with a rain head (water pressure not great in either) the the toilet made up the rest of the space - so getting in/out of the shower or bath was almost straight onto the toilet - strange!
The construction of the rooms is with cheap looking laminate walls and doors - not my taste.
The hotel seems to 'save' power during the day by turning off power when someone exits the room and there is no movement - which happened when my husband went to get something from the car and I was reading on the chair in the corner. Disconcerting to say the least, but when I started moving around the lights came back on. Wifi was a bit patchy.
The food options in the bar were easy for kitchen staff to prepare and quality varied.
A little bit outside the old town, so getting around was easy. Not bad overall.

The first hotel we've had on this trip that wasn't right in the centre of town or abutting the old city so a new experience.

It is a reasonably modern looking hotel and when you enter from the street you are met with a spacious and nicely finished lobby that is adjoined by the 'Blue Bar'. Reception staff very nice and were quite helpful. Porter took the bags all the way to our room and showed us a few things about it.

The walk into town is about 15-20 minutes depending on your pace however you can go through a beautiful park on the way. There is not much to see on the street around the hotel in the way of shops, cafes or restaurants and the few there are have weird opening hours and so-so menus.

Even the hotels own restaurants weren't open for dinner, other than the Blue Bar which I think is pretty ordinary. There was obviously a large group of people in for some sort of medical conference which did two things. Firstly, the pool area was out of bounds the day we arrived ( Saturday) and secondly they were very noisy in the public areas so hard to have a quiet experience.

Had a nice burger at the Blue Bar one night, the wife had a nice Chicken Caesar salad and the Vino Blanco ( dry white wine) was very fairly priced. That said, we were at one stage the only customers and the two staff looked and acted like we were invisible.

Our room was two single beds pushed together however the beds were very comfortable and unlike my last hotel so we're the pillows. It was an adequate size though not spacious. Bathroom vanity had two separate basins, big tick, but they made the classic mistake in the main bathroom area by trying to cram too much in and frankly, it borders on an occupational safety and health issue. Sitting on the toilet my feet touch the bath so that gives some context to the space.

They either need to just have a shower over the bath or a shower only, not try to fit all three in. Had they done so it would be fine. Just on the showers though, the water pressure here is pathetic compared to all the other places we've stayed in Spain so far ( run around underneath to get wet).

Unlike some other reviewers we did not have a balcony but did have a view down over the pool area. No Nespresso machine which was fine but in fact I do not think much of hotels that provide no tea or coffee making facilities in the 21st century.

What we did have however was noisy neighbours ( or building work going on in room 703.

We did also have a special offering, our power tripping out with no new items plugged in to cause a circuit overload so woke up to a wRm room with no power or lights. By the time maintenance arrived I'd found the hidden circuit board ( nicely disguised) and reset the main breaker to restore power myself.

The wi-fi drops in and out and here in Spain they have this quaint notion that forcing you to log-in again after every time you leave the hotel is a good idea...well it's not, it's darn annoying. Also, if you are downstairs at the blue bar you need a different wi-fi code.

Lastly, the owners need to do a thorough inspection of their hotel because it does not present well in many ways. Have a good look at the walls that are dirty and damaged, put some door buffers on the walls so you don't have holes created by the door handles, look closely at the laminate peeling of the doors to the rooms.

It was sad that the excellent service provided by the reception staff was not matched by everything else.

We stayed at the Melia Sevilla, which is truly a conference hotel and this is what they cater for. You need to know this up front. We chose this hotel for it's pool. It has a great pool which you can sit around to relax after time looking around the city. I would put in on a par with the Marriott chain. Rooms where spacious and clean, breakfast was good and varied. The lift take ages though, and the staff are not that friendly and helpful. It is located in the business part of town, about a 15 minute walk through the gardens to the centre. You don't quite get the atmosphere of the centre of the city here, but as I mentioned before it was the pool we wanted and that is the only reason we chose it. It does not have the character of the lovely hotels in the centre of town, but many of these don't have a pool. (or large pool)

Room Tip: 9th floor rooms have a balcony, great if you are a smoker
