“Good hotel”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and I'll say it was a nice hotel. Service, room, staff, and location were good.
Bathroom was a little dark but otherwise a very pleasant stay.
Small plunge pool on deck was a plus.

This hotel is an old mansion turned into a beautiful hotel , the rooms are all different with each their charm , the bigger rooms on the 1 floor are amazing . Some of the rooms are having their own terrasse wich is very pleasant . The Staff is very accomodating and very helpful . It was pleasure staying there . The price is correct and good value for your money and within walking distance from all the things you need to see in Seville .

Room Tip: 330 has it's own private terrasse

We stayed here with our 2 year old. The hotel is gorgeous. If you ever wondered what lies behind the walls of those palatial mansions, then peek into the Alma Sevilla and their courtyard. The room was beautiful and clean and a bit too pretty for a toddler, so we had them remove some of the more fragile tables, etc. Also, the french door windows were easy to open by our daughter, so we had to be a bit more "on" That being said, it's not supposed to be a child oriented hotel, and we made the best out of it and are delighted we got to stay there! The staff was very accommodating to all 3 of us, and very patient with a little girl running laps in the courtyard before sitting down for her chocolate milk. Location is great, walking distance to all the main sights and some great parks.

We had high expectations of this hotel. The building is beautiful and the location is great. Very close to the center. You can walk to all of the main monuments or take a taxi for just a few euros.
The room and bathroom are very dark. We thought the bathroom wasn’t very clean. Stains on the black tiles and the ceiling also full of strange yellow stains. Perhaps they had leaks.
A very nice courtyard, but no service at all and the furniture definitely needs an upgrade.
We didn’t have breakfast here, because we thought it was too expensive, 40 euros for 2 persons. Just walk around the corner and you will find a lot of alternatives. We went to Catalina Casa de Comidas on the Plaza Padre Jeronimo de Cordoba, where we had nice breakfasts for only 8 euros the person. Also a great place for tapas.
The hotel is overrated, not worth the money I’m afraid.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your kind comments which help us to improve the quality of our facilities and service.

I am very sorry and wish to apologise because you were given a GranDeluxe superior bedroom with some small yellow patches on the ceiling and wall in the bathroom.

This is an XWIII century Palace and sometimes we have this kind of problems with the change of season but we fix it up as soon as they are detected by our housekeeping department.
This was an obvious failure and I will make sure that it cannot happen again.

Regarding service in our patio, this is a quiet time in Seville and maybe the fact of not seeing many other guests made you think that there was nobody to serve, though there is always someone going round.

Shall you happen to come back to Seville, please write to me directly to make your booking, I will personally take care of you.
With my sincere apologies and thanking you again for your comments, please accept my

Kindest regards,

We stayed at this hotel because most of the hotels in Seville are pretty old looking. This one has a plus feel and the front desk staff is excellent... however the location is not that ideal and one can get lost pretty easily.

Also tried their restaurant... it is not that great (they overcooked my steak!), the restaurant across from Alma is way better.

We spent 3 glorious nights in Seville at the Alma Seville. We loved the city of Seville, and the hotel staff and quality of rooms/breakfast/service was outstanding. The staff were unreal - very friendly, professional and helpful. Our room was incredible. Very modern, clean, new, comfortable etc. Highly recommend staying at the Alma - just a short walk to the main part of town, and nice to be a little away from the busier section of town.

We enjoyed that this jewel of a hotel was a little off the beaten path. The staff was exceptional, the rooms were so spacious and gorgeously appointed. I took my family of 6 and we had three rooms and everything was perfect! I wish I could give it 10 stars. I will recommend this hotel to everyone. The terraces were so lovely. We loved the location, everything was walkable. Please check out this hotel, you will not be sorry!
