From the second we walked into this hotel, we were put at ease. Aziz welcomed us and assured us that he and the rest of the staff would help us with any arrangments we needed. And they did. All the staff were incredibly nice and helpful - really went the extra distance. They offered to make reservations and never swayed us in the wrong directions when it came to recommendations around the city of Seville.
The El Rey Moro is quaint and funky. We loved the centre courtyard which most of the rooms opened up into. It rained most of the time we were there and the courtyard was damp most of the time, but the walkway/corridor to the rooms which was open to the courtyard was covered. The nice touch there was additional seating if you wanted fresh air.
The location in the midst of the old Seville neighborhood of Santa Cruz was AMAZING -- steps away from the cathedral and Alcazar!. When stepping out of the hotel's front doors, it was like stepping back to medieval times. It was right in the middle of a lot of restaurant action too.
We did not try the restaurant, but once we bought a bottle of wine at the grocery store and the restaurant staff did not bat an eyelash when we asked them to uncork our bottle -- incredibly civilized. There is also a hot-tub on the rooftop that can be reserved. It offers a nice view of the giralda bell tower.
The housekeeping services were exceptional! The room was sparkling clean and they added nice touches like free bottled water.
