Triana or Santa Cruz?

Another question!

We want to be in easy walking of sites, or access to quick transport, given that our daughter walks with a cane. We also want to be in an older quarter, with more antico feeling.

Any thoughts?

I'd try the Hotel Alminar. It's a stone's throw from the Cathedral and the staff are very friendly and helpful especially for people new to the city.

both Triana and Santa Cruz have an old feeling (Triana's feeling is authentic, while Santa Cruz is kind of a theme park created in 19th century after distroying the jewish quarter).

Triana is about 15/20 mins walking (or more) to some major sites, while Santa Cruz is closer to them. However some areas in Santa Cruz has limited or no access to public transport or taxis, so you'll have to walk. Triana is fully covered by taxis and public transport (metro/bus)

just my opinion ... i have some mobility issues too, sometimes use a walking stick. after looking at youtube videos and photos of Triana, centro, and santa cruz sections and reading descriptions of the areas AND google-walking the streets -- we went with an apartment in Triana.

It looked and sounded to me like Triana is easier to get around in. The streets seem better lit, less congested. Plus the ability to have a taxi drive to our lodgings seemed safer. Mobility-challenged tourists look and feel more vulnerable. Public buses can be a problem unless they are 'kneeling buses', which also makes taxi accessibility a plus.

Santa Cruz is the old part of town, looks beautiful, ancient and romantic. Triana is where regular Sevillanos live and work.
