“Excellent with one minus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

We stayed from 22-26 October, the hotel is exquisite - our room was fantastic and overlooked the pool area. The reception area and staff were very friendly and professional. The location cannot be better, you can walk to everything easily, and yet the hotel is set back and maintains a private and exclusive air. Really wonderful. The only downside for us was the restaurant - we ate here on our first evening but were very disappointed. The food (my dish in particular, the salt cod) was awful - it was sloppy and you could not distinguish any of the flavours. The waiter was good enough to remove the charge from our bill, which he did not have to do even though two mouthfuls was more than enough. The red wine was stone cold, but was replaced when brought to their attention (again, the waiter felt the bottle and removed it straight away). Unfortunately it put us off returning for breakfast and so we ate out which was very easy to do due to the location. Restaurant would not put us off returning. American Bar was excellent with a good atmosphere which we enjoyed. Overall a wonderful hotel in a wonderful city.

Our son is studying in Seville for the semester and we recently visited him and stayed at The Alfonso XIII in Seville. The hotel was wonderfully situated and provided excellent service and delicious food. We had upgraded to a suite and our son stayed on a roll away in the living room area at no extra charge. The hotel has classic Moorish architecture and an historic feel but rooms were very comfortable and bathroom was modern. A great value and terrific hotel.

This hotel is beautiful from intricate tile work through out spacious guest rooms. The hotel is well located close tothe cathedral, castle and their Central Park. Rooms are spacious and well maintained, the hotel has a nice relaxing pool area. It also boasts a nice bar with a large selection of gin and othe spirits and friendly bartenders who know their stuff.

We just spent 6 nights in one of the most beautiful hotel of Seville. Unfortunately, this is also the most famous hotel of Seville and maybe even of spain. And very expensive. From that point of view, it is unacceptable (at least for me) that you have to pay for Wi-Fi and for the car and for the breakfast. I just expect "an other level" from a Hotel like this that put itself under the category of the "Luxury Hotels of the world". It is for sure a "must see" but from my point of view not a "must stay".

Once you drop off in front of the main entrance you know you're in for a treat. This is a beautiful, historic property in the dead centre of the old town and across the palace.

The hotel has wonderfully renovated rooms and a lovely patio. Oh, and a beautiful, serene outdoor pool.

I was however disappointed with the service at this property. The patio bar service was slow. The breakfast was hit and miss servicewise.

Would I recommend this property? Absolutely, for the hardware itself. It is without doubt the most beautiful hotel in Seville.

Outstanding service from the hotel desk and all of the staff. I was a little disappointed that, given the cost of the room, I had to pay for wi-fi in the room. That aside, it is truly a luxurious hotel that is relatively close to all that you may want to see in Seville. Guests are treated well. The breakfast buffet has a wide variety to choose from but as someone has previously posted: the coffee is terrible; I recommend that you stick to the hot chocolate. Be careful when driving to the hotel as gps may send you to a street that was recently converted to a pedestrian walkway.

Staying at the Alfonso XIII Hotel is like staying in a museum. From the lobby, to the restaurant to the rooms, it is one of the most elaborate hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff couldn't do more for you and the location in Seville is in walking distance for most places you need to go. My only problem is that for all this luxury there is a price. We stayed at 5 hotels in Spain and this is by far the most expensive but the only one that charged for in room wiFi (over $20 per day). Food at the restaurant was also very expensive (nice breakfast buffet for over $20 per person) and don't go there needing laundry service ($6 for a pair of socks or $6 for each piece of underwear). My feeling is that paying such a high price for an elaborate hotel should rate some break somewhere else in the hotel. No luck. There are lots of other hotels in Seville that are in an ever better location at half the price and give free wiFi. Granted you won't have a room with 4" thick marble dresser tops or a crystal chandelier, but is this really necessary if you are a tourist there to see the sights Seville has to offer?
