I saw many mixed reviews for this hotel and now having been have decided that the reviews must be affected by the room people have been allocated. Now was I a lucky bunny or what!! we got a fabulous room with a huge rooftop terrace to sit out on, which is just as well as we are both smokers and the entire hotel (excluding outdoor patios) is non smoking. Now the room wasn`t huge but it had the best storage in a hotel room I have seen for years and great refreshment space. The bathroom was really quirky with double marble sinks and a jaccuzzi bath is one part, then another little section with the loo and on from that a big shower with the biggest dinner plate sized shower head and a separate handheld one. We had no problems with hot water and there was a fabulous smell off the shampoo and gel.
The rest of the hotel as you can see for yourself in the traveller photos is stunning with little patios and moorish architecture at evey turn.
While out on our huge terrace we did have the opportunity to see windows to some other rooms on lower floors and hubby did say he wouldn`t be as happy if we had recieved one of those as although they are probably well furnished and quirky like ours was but being on a lower floor they could be very dark and could feel a little claustrophobic without the outside space we had.
The location cannot be beaten as it is central to everything and there are a good selection of bars and restaurants right outside the hotel and a supermarket within 5 mins walk.
We found any contact we had with staff to be polite, professional and more than helpful.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and I would stay again no problem, but then I did get an incredible internet bargain and fully expected to have a room beside the bins!!
One thing I would say though, we found Seville a lot more expensive to eat and drink in than other cities and tourist areas of Spain. Granada is incredible value by comparison especially for shopping, eating and drinking.
Oh the Casas De La Memoria flamenco venue is only 2 mins walk from the hotel and this is one of the top rated shows which we thoroughly enjoyed but book in advance as the shows sell out fast, you can pre book tickets for any date (if available) at 6pm every evening.
Only one glitch, we got a very low signal on our Samsung Netbook and couldn`t access the net for some reason although we saw others with laptops using theirs!! however, there are two rather slow PC`s for use in the piano bar.
