Hotel Fernando III
Ranked #45 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed May 9, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon during Semana Santa. The hotel has the traditional Spanish furnishings, which look great & the place is really clean. They old bartender, Hermio, was so charming and sweet. The hotel is centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere. The front desk is also really helpful pointing out bus stops to take to get to other parts of town :)

Room Tip: Only problem we encountered is other guests coming in late from feria and could hear them from the h...

The Fernando iii is ideally situated in the heart of the Santa Cruz district in the historical core of Seville. The rooms are clean and the hotel has a roof area for sunbathing, views and even a swimming pool (although this is only open May to September).

The rooms are furnished in fairly traditional Spanish style with dark wood and well appointed. The fridge was curiously locked and although wifi was available in the room there was no information about either. Similarly we had reserved a double bed but got two singles - despite emailing in advance (and receiving no reply). An American in the lift reported the same problem regarding a child's bed which was not made available.

The gloomy but spacious interior is dark and staid. The staff were very helpful but had to be approached for information during the busy Santa Semana festival - it would be useful to have plentiful information available in the foyer.

The electrical items in the room were rather tired and aged, - the cream hairdryer on the bathroom wall was brown through the passage of time.

Having said that, breakfasts were only 4.35 Euros down the sreet at the wonderful Tapiteria and cafes, bars and restaurants abounded.

I recommend the hotel as a well located residence with a great location. To get there from the main bus stop, turn right along the main road alongside the park and take a left three hundred yards where the park ends and slip through the alley to the right - the Fernando is 100 yards on the right of the street after turning left down Santa Maria del Blanco.

So, far from trendy, but comfortable and clean with a roof area and pool - if you're not after a boutique feel, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front are quieter but may not have a balcony. Please make sure the right kind of...

We stayed here for one night on a day trip. The uniformed staff were extremely helpful.
The rooms were spotlessly clean, almost to the point of clinically clean!
There are a lot of good street cafe / restaurants within 100 metres of the hotel. If you are on a budget, you will find loads of smaller cheaper hotels dotted around the immediate area.
The hotel offer a free guided city tour, which lasts for over two hours. The tour consists of a lot of walking to different locations and being told about the history of what you are seeing. If you want to enter any of the attractions, you should note where they are, then go back later on your own to see them. Ideal, if you have a few days, however, we were on a one day trip, so we wasted a lot of time walking in the group, which had to keep stopping so that we did not lose any of the older visitors.
My review score is only for the hotel and not for the trip.

Stayed three nights during Semana Santa. Nice room, rather pricy. Good location, close to cathedral. Don´t go for breakfast, lots of breakfast restaurants outside hotel. Quiet place to sleep, didn´t try the restaurant.

The hotel is a basic comfortable business hotel, with nice good size rooms compared to what Europe offers with very comfy large bed( but you have to generally ask for it- or try and get upgraded to it). The food is rather average, but it is the location of the hotel- central to the city's most visited tourist destinations, the riverside, the shopping areas, the various bars and tapa restaurants that make this hotel always have a 90% capacity.
The reception people know English, but all the others don't know it. The breakfast is rather ok, so don't really take a deal with it, as you have loads just around the corner and sure a great treat too!
All in all value for money and comfortable!!

Room Tip: Try and take rooms on the top floors, and also insist to have an AC in the summer!!!

We stayed 3 nights. The hotel has good large rooms with comfy beds and very friendly and helpful staff. The pool was not open which was disappointing, we noticed other hotels had their pools up and running. I suggest you skip the breakfast and visit the cafe Carmela 15 metres to the left of the front door. Best of all is the location in Santa Cruz.

Stayed on the first level which looks newly renovated, large rooms and bathrooms, very comfortable bed and furnishings. In a fantastic location meaning we could walk everywhere within 15-20 minutes.

Only gripe - the sheets don't look like they are washed. Found yucky marks on them which shoudl have come out if they were clean and fresh.

Room Tip: Choose first level rooms
