We stayed here for 3 nights last week.We were given Casa 28 which is a very pretty room although I found the small bathroom a bit claustrophobic. All was fine until night time when the noise from other bars, the dustmen and then deliveries meant very little sleep. If you are a deep sleeper definitely request this room! The next morning we asked if we could be moved and were given Casa 26.This room was smaller but oh so lovely and quiet at night!!
We were amazed that tea and coffee were not provided in the rooms and when we asked for a kettle it was not possible to find one. Uliana came to our aid by producing a very ancient coffee maker which was better than nothing, but we really couldn't understand why beverage making faclilties could not be provided. I note other travellers have aslo requested this.Who wants to get up and dressed whlist on holiday to go to get a drink from the restaurant??
We loved the other little treats that the Hotel offers though- a free half hour session in the hot tub(which was great) and a drink in the restaurant (also great!). Bikes were also provided but we were happy walking!
The roof terrace is also lovely, I thoroughly enjoyed a quick half hour chill up there, relaxing on a lounger with my book, in between exploring the City.
Do try the Hotel restaurant it's excellent. We had the Menu del Dia, three courses for 9E, excellent quality. Main course of pork was particularly good and cooked to perfection. Our only suggestion here would be to widen the choices slightly as other restaurants in the vacinity have done.
We also tried the tapas, upon recommendation from Jose the chef. He was a great laugh and appeared to understand my pidgin Spanish perfectly! When we had eaten the amazing tapas and thanked him for this recommendation he explained that it is a Spanish custom to have a sweet wine with your dessert and could he offer us one to try? We happily accepted and he brought us a glass of sweet wine each and a tiny dessert, on the house!! :-)
Seville itself was amazing we loved the tiny cobbled streets and visited several attractions. We would definately go back and stay in the future
