The good stuff:
a) Cool and funky - the hotel was totally refurbished quite recently it is very "cool & funky" and feels "boutiquie".
b) Rooms - reasonably sized and well equipped including two basins and a bidet
c) Solarium - there is a great sun deck and jacuzzi on the roof (7th floor) with amazing views + there is also a sauna and steam room
The average stuff:
a) Location - the hotel is on the edge of the old town so you always have to walk 10 minutes to get to most of the major attractions
b) Sleep - the bed has good linens and feels quite new but is a bit shaky and lacks support - not the best nights sleep but not disastrous either
c) View - not great but just getting a street view in Seville is nice and the noise is not obtrusive
d) Gym - there is a gym but the room is austere, the equipment is ok
e) Wifi - the connection is very slowwwww and keeps dropping, but it is complementary
f) Corporate - it is part of a large hotel group and the hotel is quite large so you don't get the personal attention that you would in a small hotel, but there are no nasty surprises either
The bad stuff:
If I stayed in Seville again I might risk a more historic hotel but the Gran Melia Colon is a very safe choice, you know what you are getting and you know you wont be let down.
