“nice and cozy hostel”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Very nice hostel with a little rooftop area to chill and drink in the sunshine. The owner was helpful and teh rooms were comfortable and clean. It's a bit of a walk through the maze of Seville to the city center, but once you've figured it out, it's fine. We had our own bathroom, which was very clean as well as the shared bathrooms. Only minor criticism would be that the window of our room went to the inside of the building, which meant that it was never dark in the room at night.

I probably didn't read the details closely enough but arriving on a hot afternoon, was not overly impressed by the ground floor room with only a fan (thought it was air conditioned) we were given. Even less so when we discovered that sitting on the loo, you looked straight up though a small window to the first floor landing. We climbed up and put a t-shirt over it which was replaced by baking foil a few days later by the management.

Room otherwise was fine for the price apart from the damp sauna smell which seemed to emanate from the unsealed pine door surround to the bathroom. We got used to it. Bathroom is part of the inner courtyard so the whole building is party to your every bodily function.

The manager was very helpful & provided a city map with lots of suggestions on. Went up to the roof terrace one afternoon & would say the stairs to the top two floors could be difficult for less able visitors.

It was a cheap, central base to explore Seville but would not return.

this is the number 1 pension in Sevilla! the rooms are coasy, spottless and nice. The staff is super friendly and ever so helpfull. (eg. when they where full and we, off course, didn't book in advance, they walked us to a nearby other pension to arrange a room for 1 night after we could go back to 'The Virgen'.) The location is between Santa Cruz and the Hercules area in our opinion the best areas for tapas cañas and other good sevillian stuff. Hasta la proxima!

Just came back from a trip to beautiful Andalusia. I spent 3 days in Sevilla where I found great accommodation at the Pension Virgen de la Luz. Not only it is not far from the city centre (5 in walk) but the people hosting the pension are really friendly, know cheap and good addresses and are always ready to help. Rooms are very clean and colored. Very quiet too. Very nice place for its price. I would totally recomment it.

I spent three nights there and had a very good stay! Neat and clean ensuite bedroom, nicely decorated as the rest of the guesthouse, for a very affordable price! The guys who run it are really nice and helpful, they gave me a map and lots of info without even being asked! Last but not least, Pension Virgen de la Luz is located in the heart of Barrio Santa Cruz, within walking distance from the Cathedral and all the other main attractions.

Situated close to a variety of sites, we found this place perfect for our needs. The staff was extremely kind and upgraded our room just because (free of charge)!

Not fancy but included a terrace, wifi, and cheerfully painted rooms. Our room was cleaned daily--decent towels, soap and a powerful AC.

This pension was much better than any budget place I've stayed in the US. I highly recommend staying here.

If I was only rating budget hotels, this hotel would get a 5 out of 5 stars. The hotel is extremely clean, both the rooms and the common areas. The staff are friendly and helpful. Jose checked us in and couldn't be nicer and was very helpful with information. He knew exactly where we could park our car in a safe area and for free.

The pension is cute, both the rooms and common areas. There is a beautiful rooftop patio that is open to all the guests. The pension is close to all the major sites, restaurants, and bars. Our room was a little small but we made it work and it was comfortable. We definitely would stay again.

Room Tip: We were there in July and in July, it is hot, hot, hot in Sevilla. I'm not sure if all the rooms...
