We will be in Seville for 3 nights on an upcoming trip to Southern Spain. We are traveling in July so I definitely understand the days might be hot so we definitely want a place with a pool.
I know these are two different style hotels but does anyone have any comments on staying at the Hotel Alfonso XIII vs the EME Catedral. I already read the reviews and forums but looking for some advice from anyone who has stayed at both. EME does seem to have some poor reviews on service recently. One looks more luxurious vs the other more modern and funky. I like the location of EME and also the fact they have a great rooftop bar. We like places that are more unique and true to the culture of where we are traveling. We really like luxury boutique hotels as well. Both of these were recommended by friends and our travel agent.
We will visit the Catedral and Alcazar while there. I am most excited about seeing some flamenco shows in the evening and just experiencing the culture and people of Seville. We are flying in to Malaga and plan to take the train direct to Seville.
One other question- is it advisable to stay in Ronda for more than just a day trip- we could shorten our stay in Seville by one night and spend one night in Ronda? if not we can go to Ronda on a day trip later in our stay not taking time away from Seville. We will be at another event near Malaga for a few days after Seville and will have the opportunity to take some day trips.
