Once we found this hotel we couldn't have been happier. However, I must warn all future travellers, Seville is ghastly to navigate. It took us quite a long time (and we are seasoned drivers and navigators) with the combination of one way streets and construction to find our hotel, but we managed by asking lots of people and evenutally found a tourist office which directed us (on foot) since we had finally found a parking space. Once there of course, it seemed extremely simple and we parked the car in a nearby underground parking space for the duration of our stay in Seville.
That said, the hotel itself is a delight. We opted for one of the Jacuzzi rooms since we wanted twin beds. It was a beautifully appointed room, spacious and opened out on to a "private" deck. I put it in inverted commas since it isn't really all that private since the guests can come up to the roof (which is where you essentially are) for drinks and cigarettes. It was too cold for us to use the jacuzzi anyway, but I wouldn't have been too thrilled to be in it while some other couple were a few feet away enjoying their cocktails. Since we didn't use it no problem. The staff were kindness itself and all of them spoke excellent English. They were very helpful with various problems that we had, and had wonderful large umbrellas at the ready when it poured one day.
They have a complimentary "afternoon tea" which is varied and plentiful. We had the breakfast which was also excellent -- hot and cold food with lots of fruit, cheese and yoghurt. Also a cute little "do it yourself" coffee maker which included decaffeinated coffee - something I found a little difficult in terms of quality, in Spain.
The location is excellent. I listed it low because of the difficulty finding it, but as I said earlier, it is a great location once you are there. Steps away from the Cathedral, the Alcazar and the Giralda (which we could see from our room) and the main shopping area. We loved it here.
