Catalonia Santa Justa Hotel
Ranked #51 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed December 9, 2005

Overall this is a lovely hotel and we had a really enjoyable stay. The best points were the bathroom (mostly marble, bath, shower, bidet, and plenty of mirrors), the enormous king size bed (made up of two large singles but perfectly good for us), and the buffet breakfast.
The breakfast was fabulous - a wide range of hot and cold food, fresh and cooked fruit, meats, cheeses, tortilla, smoked fish and perfectly cooked eggs and of course bottomless tea and coffee!
The location of the hotel was ok. A taxi right into town (to the cathedral to be specific) was only 4euros and the walk only 20-25 mins or a 5 minute bus ride to the beautiful river. The walk into town was perfectly pleasant - bars and pastelerias and shops on the way - so we did not feel isolated or out of the way at all. And it only cost about 17 euros to get back to the airport by taxi - taxis are very easy to flag down right across the city.
And the metal shutters on the bedroom windows seem to be the norm in seville - we thought they were most probably to block out the bright glorious sunshine in the mornings and they worked very well.
There were some little negatives but i do not want to blow them out of proportion...when we arrived we were a bit bemused by how to operate the air conditioning in the room and the window shutters as the concierge did not show us up to the room and explain it to us but we worked it out eventually so it didn't matter too much.
Though none of the staff were rude to us they were sometimes a little short when serving food - though this seemed to me more like a lack of confidence in english than anything else! There were enough staff fluent in english that we had no trouble asking questions when we needed to.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Emparador Trajano and on both occasions we have been more than pleased. The rooms are clean and well equipped, the reception was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was of good quality and selection.
It's location is away from the town centre but is only 15 mins walk at most from the heart of Seville and less than 10 to the Santa Cruz area. Reception organised a 1 day tour to Granada for us and we ate in the hotel that evening. What a pleasant surprise as the meal was less than we paid down the city centre and better quality.
The price was half that of the hotels in the town and so we had no qualms about getting a taxi now and then, they were so cheap anyway, plus the taxi rank was outside the hotel, (3 Euros would hardly break the wallet).
Being away from the town centre we managed a good nights sleep on all the nights we were there.
We aim to go again next May and will ceratinly try to get back to the Trajano again.

So much for a quiet romantic stay in Seville. The hotel is in one of the most noisy and polluted areas of the city - not in its historic heart as the publicity tells you, but a good 25 minutes walk or €5 cab ride away. Our greeting on check-in was cursory to say the least; we were left unacknowledged while the concierge had a good long chat on the phone. We had booked a double room and of course got a twin and upon asking for a double were told, apparently without a thought, that nothing was available in the hotel. If only we had walked there and then. Couldn't sleep for the noise, couldn't breath for the pollution. Entrance area was tired with worn out leatherette couches. What a lousy experience. Never again. Loved Seville though!

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It's very basic. Located on a busy street, they have a metal shutter on their windows to block off traffic noise. It's about 7-10 minute walk from the train station. They say they're near town center, but it's really more like a 15-20 minute walk, so it's not that convenient. I'd say you'll be better off finding something closer to old town.
