My family (2 adults and 2 young children) spend a weekend in Seville on the recommendation of professional associates of my wife and they recommended Casa del Poeta (friend of a friend is owner and got us a special deal).
First, we arrived a day earlier than they originally expected and did not have a room for us but set us up in a private apartment nearby. The apartment was wonderful, looked like we might have been the first one's to stay there, but if you are offered that option, do it, the only negative were two flights of stairs, otherwise, the rooms, decor, facilities, location, all great. The flexibility, responsiveness and service by the team in arranging for this option, airport taxi pick up, meeting taxi (as we had to walk a block or two down streets to narrow for vehicles), etc. were all outstanding.
Second, we moved from the private apartment to the Hotel del Poeta second day. The rooms are lovely, the courtyard, entry way and other spaces are comfortable and artistically adorned with wonderful sculptures..The breakfast was very nice, it would have been nice to make it a buffet to give us more flexibility and the first morning we didn't even realize ordering eggs was an option. I might recommend to hotel that they keep breakfast set up in the inner room, the waiters spend much of the AM setting up and breaking down the service, when they could spend more time servicing guests if the set up where more permanent. Also, seems they could have done a better job with what appeared like a wine tasting room in setting up and promoting a wine tasting and small tapas.
The LOCATION is ideal. I felt like we were at the top of the hill and just keep heading up and you will find your home. Also very close to main touristic areas and plenty of great places to eat. Overall, a wonderful escape and highly recommended for couples, which is mostly who we saw, although we did see a wedding party and my daughter enjoyed all the attention lavished on the bride as she was photographed through this picturesque location. Go and enjoy.
