The staff and hotel were fabulous! Out of all the tripvisor recommendation like this one the best. They booked personal tour of the city on electric bikes, fun and informative. The rooms were a little larger than others we stayed at.

A beautiful hotel with a mix of old and new. The rooms are extremely modern and comfortable. The shower was so nice I didn't want to get out of it. The beds were a dream. The staff went out of their way to help...made dinner reservations for us and recommended things to do. An amazing experience and well worth the money.

It would be difficult to beat the AlmaSevilla...excellent. The staff, the sitting areas, the room, the buffet, the location and best of all the mattress & linens were all perfect. This hotel should not be missed if visiting Sevilla. Grand architecture with great service. Thank you! P.S. the restaurant La Bulla was a fantastic recommendation.

Spent 3 nights at the Alma Sevilla at the start of October.

In Santiago street in the Santa Cruz district. This is about a 15 minute walk to the Cathedral/Alcazar. Of course you WILL get lost (many times in fact) but this is all part of the fun. The very narrow streets are very clean and safe with interesting bars and hotels tucked away all over the place (try the bakery around the corner). Also about 10 minutes walk to the main shopping district. The shops are very smart and good for shoes, bags and clothing (especially for youngsters).

We had room 31 which is on the ground floor facing the courtyard. This means you have no privacy and you have to have you curtains drawn turning the room into a bit of a dungeon. Room had nice bedding and a good wet room layout (although the cloth curtain separating wet room/toilet from bedroom is a bit strange).

We ate once in the restaurant (tapas) which was pretty poor (deep fried everything). Also, we had the breakfast once which was good but at 20 EURO at piece not really an acceptable option.

The public rooms are well done, cool and nicely decorated. We found the staff (in the main) very friendly and helpful.

All in all a pretty good stay but overpriced.

Room Tip: Upper floor would be best.

We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel the staff were fantastic, after reading all the reviews on tripadvisor we thiought we would stay here, our first opinion was lovely, the hotel does not have a bar which we think is the heart of a hotel where people meet, of course you can get a drink but its not the same as sitting round a bar, the restaurant we never ate in as it seemed lacking, very small. Breakfast we ate out as 20 euors seems very steep for breakfast. The room was very nice the bed fantastic, the shower has no instructions so on the first night I scolded myself. We would not return as we found cheaper hotels with better facilities in seville. Very expensive for what you get. Very good central location, seville is beautiful with lots of fantastic restaurants

Room Tip: we had a room with no view but it was very quiet

My mother and I recently stayed here and it was delightful! Very comfortable rooms with nice soft beds that you normally don't see in Europe. Our waiter Michael was lovely giving us fantastic recommendations to the hidden places for seeing flamenco and tapas restaurants that aren't overcrowded by the tourist crowd to make for a more authentic experience! Thanks Michael!

You would be missing out if you don't see the Alcazar,cathedral and sit at a nice restaurant on the river gazing at the city!

We recently spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel in Seville. We drove here from Cordoba and the sat nav found it without a probblem. However, the hotel parking is not cheap (€30 per night) and there were no places on the surrounding streets as all the spaces were taken.

Once inside, the hotel is elegant with friendly, English-speaking staff. The rooms are all set around either an internal or external courtyard (both gorgeous) and our standard room was spacious with a huge bed covered in quality linen. The bathroom had a massive shower, double sinks and nice toilettries.

The rooftop pool is a small plunge affair which was a bit chilly and the area around it was plain to look at but nice to have. We didn't use the spa or restaurant.

The hotel is an easy 11 minute walk to the cathedral (we are averagely fit mid thirty year olds) and there are some lovely tapas places within a 5 minute walk (Los Coloniales and Vineria San Torno are particularly good and very good value)

I would definately recommend this hotel and would return without a second thought
